Could happen in comic form-there's already been comic only crossovers with X-men, Legion of Superheroes and Doctor Who. Marvel is getting the license for Star Wars due to the Disney ownership though.

Re: star wars/star trek crossover cominig in 2016

TrekBBS has fell prey to a few of these kind of threads lately. What's up with that?

I just mean there have been a lot of threads like this made, when their intent is obvious.

The problem with a crossover is no matter how it ends, some fans are going to be angry their side didn't kick the other's ass. The best you'd get is a stalemate.
I've always thought that Star Wars tech is pretty inferior, so Treknology would stomp all over their stuff. Unless, one or more fairly powerful Force users were in play. They would own the day, I think. Unless unless, a transporter operator got the drop on them and scrambled them all over the place. I'm thinking a Force user *might* be able to hold themselves together if they knew what was happening, but given that there are no transporters in Star Wars, they might get taken out before they knew what hit them.

I think some of the posters at some Star Wars forum get drunk or troll-y or both and decide to come take the piss out of us. Like teacake said, it's usually good for a few laughs.

Moderators: PLEASE don't kill this thread. Move it to Misc or TNZ or something, but this is the funniest shit I've read for quite a while.
I agree, this is a great thread.

Patrick Stewart: "Yeah, JJ came to me trying to get me in his crossover. "
bbjeg: "Pat, I told you to stop Skyping me."
Patrick Stewart: "... but I wuvs you so much."
bbjeg: "You're making it weird, man."



Real log.

Re: star wars/star trek crossover cominig in 2016

Agentcoop: Mr. Lucas, how do you explain that in Star Wars Obi-Wan tells Luke when he met his father he was a great pilot, but in Menace he's just a little boy?
BigGeorge: Well, my kids thought...
Agentcoop: And how come Obi-Wan tells Luke that Yoda is the Jedi that trains him, but in the movie Liam Neeson trains him?
BigGeorge: Um, well, the power of myth...
Agentcoop: Isn't it true you knew this was a bad movie, that you wrote it over a weekend but told people you had it written for years?

Totally real chat log. For realsies.

Re: star wars/star trek crossover cominig in 2016

It's a fine thread but I am surprised it's still in the Future of Trek forum. Unless proof arises in a form better than copying and pasting (unlikely), this thread is more Miscellaneous territory.

I'm thinking a Force user *might* be able to hold themselves together if they knew what was happening, but given that there are no transporters in Star Wars, they might get taken out before they knew what hit them.
The way I see it is this: (note...personal opinion only)
Star Trek might deal in hard numbers (5.1GW for a Type X phaser, 50 isotons for a photon torpedo, etc), but Star Wars does not....this leaves Star Wars pretty open to just how much power a turbolaser on a Star Destroyer, or even a Corellian Corvette has in comparison to a Star Trek TNG phaser. For all we know, a turbolaser could be every bit as powerful as a Type X phaser. The material integrity in the construction of an Imperial Star Destroyer or Corellian Corvette might be the same as a Galaxy or refit Constitution class starship. Just because it has the word "laser" in it (granted, in Trek terms, a laser is less powerful than a phaser), does not mean it is inferior. In the Star Wars universe, the term "laser" is a generic catch all term for blaster or beam weapons.

Star Destoyer shields are generally planetary strength, or near planetary strength. It could take a Type X phaser a bit to cut through the shields.

(Besides, some Star Wars ships have ion cannons that ignore shields and can disrupt/disable targeted ships' systems...and sorry, I don't count the whole "if it didn't happen on screen" crap. Lucasfilm Archives--since the mid 80's-- says the ships have 'em, they have 'em....and in my tribute films, they use 'em. ) (example, my still in production BattleSTAR Galactica WARS CG movie)

But ultimately, to satisfy (or disgruntle) either and both fanbases, the best to be hoped for is a stalemate...or a fanfilm with alternate endings...one as a tie, one favoring Star Trek, and another favoring Star Wars.

It's impossible to compare techs between Star Trek and Star Wars.

Because he was a great pilot. See, pod race. Humans couldn't even compete in that and here he was, a child, competing and winning.


Agentcoop: And how come Obi-Wan tells Luke that Yoda is the Jedi that trains him, but in the movie Liam Neeson trains him?

Yoda trained the younglings. He obviously made a big impression on Obi-Wan. Probably there were lollipops. You know how kids are, they remember fondly things accompanied by sugar.
