    John Sheridan would give the Emperor an epic speech about independence. The Emperor would then see the logic in leaving the galaxy in the hands of the Rebellion and then leave with his Imperial Fleet to a galaxy far, far away. Wait, that's our galaxy. Way to go fucking up your own galaxy, Starkiller!

    Going with Obi-wan's line that Darth Vader was more machine than man, Captain Kirk would try his anti-evil computer voo-doo on Darth Vader to get Vader to lower the shield generator and blow up the Death Star himself.

    Just around the bend.
    "First, we build a giant wooden rabbit. Then, we give it to the imperials and they take it inside the Deathstar. Once inside, we jump out of the rabbit and Arthur uses the Holy Hand Grenade.."

    "wait, what was that last part again?"

    "you use the.."

    "no, before that!"

    "we jump out of the rabbit"

    <much slapping ensues>

    Fair enough. I was trying to frame the discussion from being, "Well, then Picard swoops in with the Enterprise and just fires quantum torpedoes" sort of thing. (I didn't want it to become a SW vs Other Franchise technology battle, in other words). But I can see that in my scenario, perhaps no character from another series would be able to do anything differently due to the hand they've been given--which I suppose ends the discussion pretty fast!

    Would they replace "It's a trap" with simply "RUN AWAY!"

    to your immediate right
    With enough prep time, Batman would wipe out the Death Star, Darth Vader and the entire Imperial Army.

    Rose would look into the heart of the TARDIS, then see every single atom of the Death Star's existence and divide them.....
