Spock

How does Spock's strength compare with Chewbacca's? Who would win in an arm wrestling contest?

Vulcans are a few times stronger than humans but in fights it often seems like they're fairly evenly matched. Chewbacca (Wookies) however are depicted as being quite a bit stronger than their human counterparts (and assuming Han Solo's suggestion that Chewie once ripped the arms out of the sockets of a man who beat him in Space-Chess.) I'd think a fight between Chewbacca and Spock (or a Wookie and a Vulcan) would fall to the Wookie's favor. If nothing else because Wookies are likely to fight dirty and viciously as opposed to the strategy and "logic" a Vulcan would fight with.

Now, I wonder what a blend between the Amok Time theme and the "Duel of the Fates" piece would sound like.

I'm picturing Spock in front of a roaring fire with Wookie skin rug at his feet.

Re: Spock

Wouldn't Spock, being as smart as he is, know the fundamental maxim of the universe: "let the Wookiee win" ?

Because you can't peel a Wookie like a banana.

It's only a slash fic if Kirk is joining Spock on the Wookie rug.

Forget that, I got a better idea - not Kirk, Han!

Re: Spock

Is this a serious question? Vulcans are more durable than humans but they've never been depicted as having super-strength. Going up against Chewbacca would be like tackling a grizzley bear.

When Spock hit that metal pipe Kirk was holding in This Side of Paradise, he nearly bent it in half. I'd say he's pretty damn strong.
