Star Trek vs Star Wars 2 by todd587 Star Trek vs Star Wars 2 by todd587
I've always been interested in the size differance between various Star Wars and Star Trek ships. I've seen Star Trek ship comparisons and Star Wars ones too, but never one of both of them combined - and never one in 3D. I thought it might be tool to make a 3D comparison of the two.

I also have one of the smaller ships - check my gallery :)

It would be really nice if the list of star ships were numbered to the models. Just so we know which was which (the non obvious ones and the very tiny ones)

It's amazing how any comparison between SW and ST, even a benign one such as this, devolves into a pissing contest! 

Seriously, can't we just praise a good modeling job? It looks cool! Nice job!

The 24th Century Federation is two centuries ahead of the Empire and Rebel Alliance....or did that not occur to you?  Yes, we found out, first hand, when our GM for Star Trek had us role play it out...our ship landed in foreign space, and suddenly, we were surrounded by flying museums in the shape of triangles....

Boy, were they surprised when we beamed out....

"Lord Vader, they disintegrated rather than surrender...URG...I can't...breathe..."

That's because I'm choking the life out of you, you imbecile!  I sense them...back on their ship.  Find a way to obtain their advanced super-science....or do you want your homeworld to be obliterated?

Yeah, but one well-placed photon torpedo will knock out the Executor (Darth Vader's super-star destroyer).

It took a whole Death Star (moon-sized space station) to destroy a planet.

It takes ONE photon torpedo (less than a ounce of antimatter in the warhead) to tear away half a planet's atmosphere. (Obsession)

When the USS El Dorado's (Galaxy Class) new experimental space folding drive landed us in a galaxy far, far away...we found that their primitive lasers couldn't even penetrate our navigational shields, much less our combat shields.

When we got back to Earth, Admiral Uhura had a sh-fit.  "Are you seriously trying to tell me that you allowed your chief engineer to trade a Starfleet shuttlecraft for this...this...speedbike???  A shuttlecraft...with it's COMPUTER CORE INTACT?!?  Captain Sanchez, you and your crew are to hightail it BACK to those primitive people, and get that shuttle BACK...or turn in your command pips!!!  Am I clear, Captain?"

"Yes ma'am.  I'm sorry,  ma'am.  May I say, your uniform is quite lovely today?  (That didn't help, did it?)  Did I mention that Kirk should've left YOU in command instead of Sulu all the time?  (Not helping my situation, am I?)  Okay, Admiral...we'll try to duplicate the accident with the experimental lattice drive....I'm sure Dr. Harker and Lt. Commander Drake will do their utmost to get the shuttle back....oh, you want me to accompany them on the away mission, huh?  Sigh...yes, Ma'am, I'm aware that Admiral Scott is even now impounding my personal shuttlecraft for spare parts....we're leaving now, Admiral Uhura....."

(Yes, this conversation really DID take place....Ricky, you DOPE!!!!  How could you trade a shuttlecraft for a lousey speeder bike???   Ever hear of the Prime Directive!!!!  )

I do have to say that the Star Trek ships need to be a bit bigger. I'm only saying this because in TNG and VOY, the ships were not that small compared to a Borg cube.

You people saying that the empire has the deathstar, sure the deathstar can destroy any single borg, but you land one or 2 drones onto the Deathstar, and they will begin assimilating it and its crew. Eventually, it would be the Borg's Deathstar.

But they just don't have the shields...

Plus, the Death Star has a few minute interval between planet shots, and that's all Star Trek needs, is a few minutes to ruin your entire day.

Plus, EVE ships will really ruin your day...

True Star trek has mobility in sub light combat and if they stay out of range then they can use there torpedoes to do some serious damage if they can make it past the laser defense grids.
However if they get within range of star wars lasers then they will be completely overwhelmed. 

So to recap Star trek has range due to torpedoes  and Star Wars as Mid to Close Range due to a CRAP ton of lasers.

Oh and Andromeda has both of them for lunch in a heartbeat.... he he he

Impressive... destabilizing a star's gravity, thus causing the hydrogen gas to go in all directions, and obliterates everything made of matter in it's path.

A large smartbomb from EVE would destroy said bomb before it could hit home, unless the firing ship was right there at the star when it launched; how much time between when a nova bomb hit a star to the chain reaction? Seconds? Minutes?

star wars ships are actually faster but less armed.

However common wealth ships (Andromeda) will beat all of these due to the fact they take into account real physics.

Star Wars ships can't go into warp within a gravimetric pull ie below a planet's atmosphere. Time and time again it is shown that Star Trek ships are far more superior in that way

No, just no, I seen enough bs from both fans and I will say no.

These are two Sci-fi universes that too different to compare.

But in the end the fans are just opinionated to see straight.

After watching the video, i have this to say. Concerning shields, i like to believe that they are both equal in terms of defense. Since the star wars universe has a far longer history (3000+ yrs) than star trek (200+ yrs for the Federation), i say that star wars found long ago that shields can be only so powerful, but weapons continued to grow. Anything will break given time, including shields. So, by the logic of time, star wars has had far longer to innovate and invent than any Alpha Quadrant species. Don't know about the Voth though...

Then it's obvious that no one in Star Wars focused on technology development at all.

You would think that an Empire as old as you claim would have mastered teleportation and energy-to-matter transmission even better than the Alpha Quadrant Federation clearly has, and would be able to deflect asteroids from their ships with ease, like the Federation does with the Navigational Deflector... but they don't.

In fact, the Empire doesn't even have as powerful handheld scanners, or any land weapon as powerful as a Photon Mortar Grenade (which hits like a small nuke, and threatens people at 1500+ meters away from the blast)

AnonymousLifeform Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2014
Well, I don't have an arsenal of information to back up things I say like you do, but let me give it a shot.

In ST, it takes great amounts of energy to do a matter-to-energy conversion, then turn it back again. This is done via antimatter/matter reactions, regulated by dilithium crystals. SW does have antimatter, but they have no way to regulate the reaction (no dilithium), so the idea for transporters may have popped up once, but due to lack power, could not make it feasible. Since there are no real-world comparisons to my knowledge of the main power supply on ships in SW (hypermatter reactors), I cannot say more.

As for scanners, SW has similar things. Portable scanners, such handheld bioscanners and handheld navigation computers, perform some of the functions of ST's handheld scanners, but we have to remember; ST is mainly about exploration, whereas SW is more about adventure and conflict. ST would need all that equipment compact.

As for your Photon Mortar Grenade... after looking it up on the Net, I could not find an article that says it does what you say, but, if it's true, then the closest thing I could find would be a Class-A thermal detonator, capable of destroying at least a 102 story building with just a single one. I do not know if it has any higher settings, but thats as close as i can find.

I do not recall, though, saying the EMPIRE was that old. I just said that SW has a tech history dating back thousands of years.

I love both franchises. I just replied the first time to try and give a pro-SW point of view after seeing all of your replies smiting any who said something not favorable to ST. We both think we're right, we disagree, and that's how WWIII starts. So after I finish this reply, i'm going to stop responding to anything from you that further adds fuel to the blaze. I don't to fight a cyberwar/debate with you, I have other things more pressing on my mind (like when this damn cold i have will ever quit...). So now, I finish this, and I will not respond to any more Trekkies vs Jedi comments from anyone.

Live long and prosper, and may the Force be with you.

I love both as well. My problem is this website.

www.stardestroyer.net/Empire/

The "fans" there annoy the hell out of me with their Trek-bashing. The whole site is based on non-canon and outright lies, as well as trashing Star Trek's ongoing reputation as scientifically accurate. There's a wiki on that site the even has the term "Trektard" as an entry.

Never ever saw or heard of a Thermal Detonator doing that.

By the way, the photon Mortar grenade appeared in the Star Trek episode "Arena".

Ah, "Arena". The one with the rubber lizard man... that takes me back.

As for the pieces of Sith on SD.net... They are not not a factor in any equation. I get my SW info from Wookieepedia and ST info from Memory Alpha+Beta.

And the detonator? That happened in the "Shadows of the Empire" SW novel. (Takes place between V & VI)

Wookiepedia and Memory Alpha are both freely edited wikis with tons of mistakes and inconsistencies. Of the two, Memory Alpha is the better resource by far, but I still hate using it.

For the record: if you had actually used Memory Alpha you would have found the grenade I spoke of, and the Star Wars books (all of them) are non-canon by consistent statements by George Lucas, making them irrelevant.

""There are two worlds here," explained Lucas. "There’s my world, which is the movies, and there’s this other world that has been created, which I say is the parallel universe—the licensing world of the books, games and comic books. They don’t intrude on my world, which is a select period of time, [but] they do intrude in between the movies. I don’t get too involved in the parallel universe."

George Lucas

"The only relevant official continuities are the current versions of the films alone, and the combined current version of the films along with whatever else we've got in the Holocron. You're never going to know what George's view of the universe beyond the films at any given time because it is constantly evolving"

- Leland Chee
