A Star Wars Vs. Star Trek Rebuttal

by t_clancy@yahoo.com

I am replying to the humor 10 ways the Star Wars universe would squash Star Trek. Well, I feel that someone has to stand up to this.
So I included the 10 ways, and the the 10 responses.

10) In the Star Wars Universe weapons are rarely, if ever, set on "stun".

REBUTTAL: But have you ever seen a phaser or Disrupter on MAXIMUM?

9) The Enterprise needs a huge engine room with an anti-matter unit and a crew of 20 just to go into warp --- The Millennium Falcon does the same thing with R2-D2 and a Wookie.

REBUTTAL: The Enterprise is a masive thing . . . and if Hans wants to stroke his Wookie, that's his own business

8) After resisting the Imperial torture droid and Darth Vader, Princess Leia still looked fresh and desirable --- After pithy Cardassian starvation torture, Picard looked like hell.

REBUTTAL: But then again, Picard is in his 60's

7) One word: Lightsabers.

REBUTTAL: You have to be in close quarters to use a lightsaber . . . use a phaser rifle, drop the bastard 20 yards away.

6) Darth Vader could choke the entire Borg empire with one glance.

REBUTTAL: Infinite Velocity - you can't choke us if you can't catch us - plus, i don't believe that statement at all.

5) The Death Star doesn't care if a world is class "M" or not.

REBUTTAL: Death Star doesn't send landing parties - Enterprise could wreek havok on any planet it chose

4) Luke Skywalker is not obsessed with sleeping with every alien he encounters.

REBUTTAL: Neither is Kirk, it's just a by-product of fighting for his crew everyweek.

3) Jabba the Hutt would eat Harry Mudd for trying to cut in on his action.

REBUTTAL: Jabba wouldn't be able to cath Mudd.

2) The Federation would have to attempt to liberate any ship named "Slave I".

REBUTTAL: prime Directive - we'd just leave it alone

1) Picard pilots the Enterprise through asteroid belts at one-quarter impulse power --- Han Solo floors it.

REBUTTAL: the Enterprise is massive, it takes time. The Enterprise could destroy the Millineum falcon in a heartbeat.
