Donald Faison has made a decision that will probably disappoint many of his fans: He’s picked a side in the friendly battle between Star Wars and Star Trek.

When it comes to introducing his kids to iconic science fiction, he’d rather take them to a galaxy far, far away than the Final Frontier. It’s not that he doesn’t like Star Trek, he told Conan O’Brien on Monday night. He just wants a little less science in his science fiction, a little more action and combat.

Of course, the original Star Trek does have one redeeming factor for him.

Maybe he should just show them the newer Star Trek films instead?
