Re: Possible Merger of Star Trek and Star Wars

As a diehard fan of both franchises since the 70's, I have zero interest in any crossover, much less a "merger."

Ain't gonna happen anyway. There's no artistic or commercial reason for it.

Re: Possible Merger of Star Trek and Star Wars

A merger, with the franchises having a permanent effect on each other? Not at all interested, but a one off non-canon crossover comic book or novel where all of the toys are back in respective boxes at the end could be fun.

I can see that, as a one-off novelty like "Star Trek meets Legion of Super-Heroes" or "Vampirella vs. Catwoman" or something.

Could be fun.

Yeah, I'll second that. I was thinking like Superman vs. Spider-Man, which dates me I guess.

We could have Spock with a Jedi robe wielding the force. Scotty and Keenser replacing Lando and Nien Nunb in the Falcon after rebuilding it after some battle. McCoy can rewire a photon torpedo to seek out the Death Star's exhaust port.

Lots of possibilities.

Hey, I still remember the very moment I first saw an ad for Superman vs. Spider-Man. My teenage jaw hit the floor. It was like stumbling onto Bigfoot or a UFO without warning.

"Ohmigod! Is this for real?"

Crossovers are a bit less mind-boggling these days, but I can't resist checking them out sometimes. (I particularly liked "Zorro vs. Dracula" several years back.)

Only if it was an one-off comic book version - it could work. On screen - not a chance.

A comic or novel whee character cross universe...sure. A merger of the two universes...uh, no. They're too different to combine. You'd have to get rid of some stuff to make it work.

Twilight sucks...go deeper and have Buffy & Damon from The Vampire Diaries meet!

- I'd like to see SW and Marvel before SW and Star Trek.
