It’s 2018, and ‘Trekkies’ are still spoiling May The 4th for everyone

It’s 4 May 2018, or if you’re an internet nerd or American, May The Fourth. It’s a pretty important date for Star Wars fans.

But what is supposed to be a celebration of Han Solo, Chewy and the Darthest Vader of them all, some just can’t help but remind everyone that Star Trek exists too.

Hijacking hashtags like #MayThe4thBeWithYou and #StarWarsinFiveWordsOrLess, Twitter users brought the sass and snark on Friday.

Growing tired of the gag, some frowned at the “hilarious” few (million) who enjoy making the same joke each year.

Some yelled out “Switzerland”, and watched the fight from a distance.

Meanwhile, the Australian House of Representatives we’re interested in starting a full scale war by posting an ode to Star Wars Day in Australia, with a GIF of Star Trek’s Cardassian battleships.

(They were totally trolling).

French game developer Ubisoft joined in too.

But forget the Star stuff for now, some on Twitter wanted to debate their own personal agendas, kicking off with Marvel versus DC.

And for some reason, The Office and Parks and Recreation we’re dragged into the conversation too. The nerve.

We agree with the feline sentiment, though.

Whichever side of the fence you’re on, we hope you all live long and prosper, and may the force be with you.
