50 Reasons why Star Wars is Better than Star Trek

4. Lando vs Quark

Look, this isn’t really a fair fight. Lando is a smooth talking, fine dressing, gambler, who can rock a cape like no one else. Quark is a damned nasty Ferengi. Lando once owned the Millennium Falcon, and even piloted the ship in the destruction of the second Death Star, with his pal Nien Nunb. And, while betraying his long-time friend Han Solo to the Empire and Jabba the Hutt, he risked life and limb to rescue him from the Sarlacc Pit. Lando put the needs of his city, Bespin, before those of his own, and that makes him a hero in my book.

Quark is a jerk. Yeah, yeah…he did something good I’m sure, and while he and Lando only compare because the two are swindlers and love to run games on the unsuspecting, Quark is just foul. I won’t even go any further, because I think you know where this is going.

Winner: Lando. Now let’s kick back and enjoy an ice cold Colt 45, while Lando regales us with stories of the time he won a shipment of Sith artifacts from a Rodian pirate in a game of Sabacc.
