NASA captured an image on Mars that resembles the symbol for Star Trek‘s Starfleet. Obviously, Captain Kirk couldn’t resist the opportunity to throw shade at That Other Space Franchise. Here’s William Shatner‘s very professional response to the discovery by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, and the rather clever reply from Star Wars:

A point to William Shatner for the “Rebel Scum” joke. But Star Wars takes the win for both the reminder that they are “far far away” and the Han Solo GIF telling Kirk not to get cocky.
