Re: Spock

Does Spock get to use red matter? Usually it takes a moon to kill Chewbacca but I think red matter would do the trick.

Re: Spock

I think all of you misread the question. It's arm wrestling, not fighting.

It would have been amusing to have Chewbacca as First Officer on the Enterprise.

Is this a serious question? Vulcans are more durable than humans but they've never been depicted as having super-strength.
In ST:3 young(er) Spock threw one of his Klingon captors (who was a big guy) about fifteen feet through the air.

The shows and movies are of course wildly inconsistent. With that kind of strength, if a Vulcan or Romulan punched you it should smash your face in or collapse your rib cage.

I agree with Batman.

Now, a more interesting match:

Entire Borg Collective vs Batman.

No, wait... answer is still Batman.. Damn it.

Imagine if they assimilated him and then ALL the Borg were Batman.

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!
Hey that happened in the comics.

It was a Joss Wheedon comic.

but it happened.

Han said some thing like "Some nights on the falcon it got really cold."

Between the lines but still obvious and hilarious.

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.

In my alternate reality, the music was awesome. Though it didn't take off until the lightsabers came out.

We're still talking about the Kirk/Spock slash fiction on the Chewie-skin rug from upthread, and "lightsaber" is a euphemism, right?

Is lightsaber ever not a euphemism? Dang, maybe Star Wars isn't as interesting as I've been thinking all these years...
