'Star Wars vs. Star Trek' and Other Tales: Which of These Franchises Would Win in a Fight?

On May 18, a fantastic new book will hit the stands: Star Wars Vs. Star Trek by Matt Forbeck.

In the words of Mr. Spock, fascinating! But how does the book measure the seemingly immeasurable qualities of these two science fiction giants? I have six words for you: Who. Would. Win. In. A. Fight. That’s right: Star Wars Vs. Star Trek pairs similar characters and creations from each franchise and invents a scenario in which the two would find reason to fight. Subjective? Maybe.
