    I'm not familiar with the Star Wars Past (like 10,000 years ago) but wasn't there a time BEFORE the force? What if the Trek time period took place in this era. That way there would be no problems with lightsabers and no force. I know, "there ain't no Star Wars without the Force, but I'm just trying to think of an alternative.

    The phrase "A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away" is George Lucas' way to mean "Once upon a time". But taken at face value, it's obviously a long time ago from the time it's being told: now... or rather 1977, the year SW hit the theaters for the first time.

    Some sci-fi worlds can have a workable cross-over and others not really so. Star Wars and Star Trek are just so different that it just doesn't mix well. Now maybe Babylon 5 and Star Trek I could see happening.
