What is the difference between a Bantha and a Batleff?

Dear Sara –

What is the difference between a bantha and a batliff?

– Cordially, Jeff R.

Dear Jeff –

This is another one of those STAR WARS/STAR TREK differentiation issues. A bantha is a large, hairy desert creature that can be used as a mount or a beast of burden on the planet Tatooine in STAR WARS. A batleff is a large, edged Klingon weapon in STAR TREK.

The name's Sara Bellum, and I'm the editor-at-large here at BuzzyMag - the hostess with the mostess, if you will. I like to think that my first calling is fighting crime and delivering a heaping dose of sweet, sweet justice to all manner of thugs, miscreants, hoodlums, ruffians, and ne'er-do-wells, but unfortunately, violent vigilantism doesn't exactly pay big bucks these days.  

Times are tough, my friends, and I've got bills to pay, so I decided to put my encyclopedic knowledge of all things sci-fi & fantasy-related to use to help me land a day job. To tell you the truth, it's kind of a nice change of pace. My manicures have been lasting a bit longer lately.
