Six films. Countless books. $20 billion in revenue. No one can question the financial value or cultural impact of the „Star Wars” films. But has the impact been for the good? „Star Wars” stands accused of elitist politics and sexism, religious and ethical lapses, the destruction of literary science fiction and science fiction film, and numerous plot holes and logical gaps. With Hugo Award winner and New York Times bestselling author David Brin heading up the prosecutorial staff and Matthew Woodring Stover, New York Times bestselling author, leading the defense team, this debate is intense, illuminating, and great fun for both fans and detractors of what is considered by many to be the most important science fiction property of our time.
