A long time ago, in a chopper mag far, far away…
We’ve been chest deep in the whole Star Trek versus Star Wars debate since the dawn of the internet. Which is exactly how long that discussion has been going on, right? Wrong! You find a lot of strange things in the Street Chopper archives. Usually, you learn at least a little something you never knew from each back issue. On a great day, those old magazines will surprise you in ways you never expected. Imagine my sci-fi nerdy surprise when I found “Vader Raider” in the September 1978 issue. “Wow,” I thought, “the only thing that could make this cooler to Geek Mark is if there were a Star Trek chopper feature somewhere.”
