Camera Editing Comparison
Star Wars Vs Star Trek space battle scenes.
Star wars is well know for its swipe transitions and epic space battles, George Lucas focuses on extreme wide angle shots to help show the size and scale of the battle with quick mid shots of the pilots in the cabins of their x-wings. Lucas also liked to show a first person perspective when diving in and out of the caverns of the death star.
In comparison, Star Trek uses a lot more mid shots when showing the outside space battle, but also shows a lot more inside the cabin and the viewer gets the feeling of the ship taking damage by the movement of the camera.
