I know the scales are off and somethings are wrong such as lighting and distances etc blah blah but I hope you like it just as a fun image to get the feel of how it would be if both franchises merged eventually.
Hallo! Me and a friend of mine recently started a sci-fi Facebook page, and we were wondering if we could use this as a cover photo? Credit would be given. We just adore it, he likes Wars and I like Trek, so...
Actually SW has this battle won considering the b-wings and TIE bombers are anti-capital ship star fighters and most star trek starships are capital ships... Beside what in star trek could match the power of the force?
Star Trek would actually win. Why do I think that you ask, well first off, trusting the technical specifications of The Expanded Universe like Henry Walsh did is like trusting the technical specifications of Trek and Wars in their beloved technical manuals; LIKE HENRY WALSH DID. If you don't know who he is, he is a dude who claims to be physicist who wrote a paper on who would win, Trek or Wars, and he used pretty much both canon and non-canon works based off of both respected universes. Which is not the best way to go, even though many of the works in Wars are indeed canon technically, but they also contradict canon. If a turbolaser blast is specifically 57 megatons worth of force like EU says, tell me; why build a space station specifically to destroy planets? Why was the Death Star Trench Run in A New Hope necessary? So to finish this, I will only be going and regarding what is officially canon and does not contradict canon what, so ever; it is only fair. First off, Federation ships are able to destroy planets by themselves, it was hinted and almost attempted in the TOS Episode; "Operation Annihilation" and literally almost happened in the TNG Episode "A Matter of Time" and happened on the VOY episode; "Scorpion". Even if the Death Star manages to hit the TOS Enterprise, it has taken hits that can destroy planets, remember the TOS Episode "The Doomsday Machine"? Another thing to note; a better civilization does not necessarily mean better weapons, Star Trek literally works hard on advancing their weapons; Star Wars tends to spend more time defending peace than simply advancing their tech, which is apparent. A bigger fleet is pretty much the only advantage the Wars Universe has at this point, technology and weapons wise, Trek wins by far, and I'm surprised it is not as clear and bright as day; I mean a universe as advanced as Star Wars like HW claims should have teleportation tech of some sort. (Even though it was hinted in A New Hope, it was never mentioned in the movies again.) I went by the movies for the sake of simply no contradictions, other portions of the series such as the books and comics and even the games and highly inaccurate tech manuals by Franz Joseph are unreliable and highly contradictory. I do this out of respect for the original stories and love both.
First off, time travel doesn't work in the SW universe, the Force itself prevents it. (The obvious reason is Lucas didn't want anyone to go back and alter the movies' timeline)
Second, SW tech has advanced so much that a bloody TIE fighter can fire off 64,000 GW of particle energy. Turbo lasers even back during the Clone Wars have 200 gigatons of particle energy. They made the Death Star because it's so powerful nothing can shield against it, while planetary shields that have been improving for millennia can deflect them. Plus, the Death Star wasn't invented by the Empire, but by the Confederacy which was made up of Republic corporations. They already had the power to create a superlaser, but what they lacked and what the Death Star provided was an impenetrable shell that protects the superlaser and has enough power for said laser. If you're fighting other cultures who don't have the tech to withstand 200 gigatons of particle energy, then simple cruisers can devastate their planets and you wouldn't need the Death Star. The Empire needed it because the Rebels were well-funded insurgents supported by the Senatorial aristocracy.
Third, SW has all-powerful beings in the form of Light-Sided Jedi who have become one with the Force, who don't interfere in mortal affairs, but then the Q aren't mortals.....so the Jedi who have become one with the force, whom Lucas describes as being far more powerful than anyone can possibly imagine (because they became one with the Light) have no qualms about wiping out the Q if they decide to interfere. Especially since the Q can be defeated by HUMANS during the Q Civil War; one member of the Continuum gave humans weapons to kill off other Q members. At this rate, the Sith need only to persuade one member of the Q that he's better off not listening to the Continuum and using the Sith as his servants, and persuade him to give them Q weapons to wipe out the other Q, then the Sith would turn around and kill their patron Q as well once they're done.
And no, the EU is canon. Lucas talked of parallel dimensions in terms of their development; he even used the EU to tie together the movies, such as Force Unleashed to tie up loose ends between episodes III and IV, and the Clone Ears to explain loose ends between Episodes II and III.
