I saw on youtube a video that impressed the hell out of me. In this scenario there is a worm hole in Klingon space that leads to another galaxie in another time frame. The quality wasnt so great but the story was fantastic. I wish I knew where I saw it i would post the link. Just look up Star wars vs star Trek. THis is a very possible scenario. I would love to see the Federation along with the Klingons whoop ass on the Empire with the help of the Jedi's. What do you think of this idea? I know Im not the only one who wonders about this.

I'll play long.


I think that the whole idea of one versus the other is rather silly. I mean, they are both interesting, sometimes contradictory, scifi universes that are enjoyable, entertaining and thought provoking. They hit in different kinds of ways, with one being more mythological and dealing with broaders themes of good versus evil, and the other more political and sociological.


The idea of a wormhole going back to the galaxy far far away is very appealing to me. I think there are many fictional ways to bridge the gap between the two and is worthwhile exploring it, at least from a scifi fans point of view


Here is a link to one such fan fiction: http://sfdebris.com/inprint/unity.asp


I'm sure others will disagree

I'm not sure how well it would work in reality. But just for fun...


The Jedi were part of an ancient alliance, which has long since fallen in the galaxy, to be recounted in only scattered and isolated places as stories of some place far, far away.


The Force remains dormant, finding expression in the telepathic and other powers of some of the galaxy's races -- but it is also a scattered remnant of a once great culture.


And one day, on a distant and previously unremarkable planet with a once isolated society of humanoids, a Federation crew (could be any crew...) encounters the lost knowledge of a people, the only ones left who still know of the Force.


As I said, purely for fun. I don't think it's any sillier than some of the once-off societies that Star Trek has given us over time.

Its really hard to compare the two. Just because they both start with "star" seems to make people think they are in direct competition. They reallt aren't anything alike.  


But I am definately more a Star trek fan than a Star wars one.

Bridging the two universes is OK for fanfiction, but not much else.


Star Trek is science fiction.


Star Wars is fantasy.


Crossovers from one franchise to another just make both of them seem juvenile and comicbooky.

Picard: Yes. Very interesting. Thank you. - Mr. Data, what do we really know about this "Force"?


Data: It appears to be nothing more than random tachyons eminating from sub space.


Picard: Is there a way to shut it down?


Data: Yes Sir. We can modify the deflector array to emit an inverse tachyon pulse.


Picard: Very good. Make it so.


Jedi Master: Hey! What happened to my mad Ninja skills?!?!


 


Excuse the lame techno babble but you get the idea.

Ah yes, the Applied Phlebotinium solution.


But you know Picard would first have to wax lyrical about how the Prime Directive dictates that they must not interfere with this Force, at least until it becomes inconvenient for him.

Here's my Star-Trek-combines-with-Star-Wars daydream that I don't take seriously but do enjoy daydreaming about:


I imagine this star cruiser in the Star Wars galaxy, long ago and far away, crewed entirely by Bothans.  For those who don't know, the Bothans are a Star Wars alien species of furry, pointy-eared humanoids.  They love politics, espionage and intrigue.  So this star cruiser is transporting Bothan colonists, including a handful of Bothan Jedi.  It enters a wormhole and emerges in our galaxy.  Lost, with a damaged ship, unable to get back to anything familiar, the Bothans enter orbit around a barren, desert world and proceed to colonize it.


But there are conflicts between the Bothan Jedi and the other Bothans, especially the crewers and civilian leaders.  Ultimately, the colony splits into two factions.  The larger faction embraces the Bothan way of espionage and power politics.  They abandon the desert world, and their ambition leads them to ultimately win a vast, secretive star empire.  The smaller faction stays on the desert world and embraces the Jedi way.  But their Force powers are diluted because most of the faction are not in fact Jedi.  The Bothan Jedi intermarry with non-Force-sensitive Bothans sympathetic to their ways, and consequently, after enough generations, no one with powers comparable to the Jedi remains, but everyone in the colony has some Jedi ancestry and thus everyone possesses rudimentary Force powers.  They have limited telepathy and can influence others' minds.  Physically, the colonists also change after many generations, growing less and less furry in their new desert climate.  Their society follows Jedi philosophy after a fashion, though altered by time and changed circumstances.  Their culture, like the Jedi, stresses high proficience in martial arts, but above all values mental discipline, peace and logic.


Falor was a prosperous merchant who went on a journey to gain greater awareness: Through storms he crossed the Voroth Sea/ To reach the clouded shores of Raal/ Where old T’Para offered truth./ He traveled through the windswept hills/ And crossed the barren Fire Plains/ To find the silent monks of Kir./ Still unfulfilled, he journeyed home/ Told stories of the lessons learned/ And gained true wisdom by the giving. – Falor’s Journey, “Innocence”

It "can't be done" because it SHOULDN'T be done. These are both respected, popular and highly entertaining franchises that tell good stories all on their own.


A cross-over attempt would be nothing but a cheap gimmick to please drooling nerdfans and make a quick buck. The two franchises have nothing in common except for the element of taking place in space. It would be like saying "let's have a Gilligans Island and Lost crossover show...yay!"
