Youíve heard of the old debate about what happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object? Well, since that question is unanswerable, starting as it does from a logically impossible premise, I wonít be tackling it. I will, however, try my hand at a similar, but considerably more geeky question: Who would win a fight between a Star Wars stormtrooper and a Star Trek redshirt?

Now, you may (rightly) point out that this isnít really a Great Geek Debate, but I would point out that, darn it, it should be one. It ties neatly into the Star Wars vs. Star Trek debate and into the classic thought problem mentioned above, and, besides, itís fun! Itís also probably the most valid comparison between the two universes, since none of the major characters in either have clear parallels in the other.

Read the story after the jump, vote, then tell us your thoughts!

Personally, I think it would be a draw, both die, redshirt kills trooper, but phaser overloads killing redshirt http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Stormtroopers all the way.. Just remember they are dangerous when there are no main characters around.

Star Wars > Star Trek.

Therefore, Stormtrooper > Red Shirt.

No doubt.
