Star Wars vs. Star Trek Trailer: Captain Kirk Battles Darth Vader!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

While we wait for another Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, have we got a treat for you. 

A YouTube user, Alex Trailers, has crafted a wickedly good editing job that presents a "trailer" of what would happen if the worlds of Star Wars and Star Trek clashed!  

It is a masterful piece of cinematic editing and its musical score will even give you the chills.

It's hard to believe, but this thing is believable and it paints a picture of the stakes being uber high as Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) fights Darth Vader in a battle to the death. 

While Simon Pegg writes Star Trek 3, perhaps he should check out this trailer for some inspiration! Yup, it's that good.

The latest Star Wars hits us December 18 while the next Star Trek is due July 8, 2016.

Clearly these are two of our favorite franchises. What others are our faves?

Star Wars Quotes

Supreme Chancellor: Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis "the wise"?
Anakin Skywalker: No.
Supreme Chancellor: I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.
Anakin Skywalker: He could actually save people from death?
Supreme Chancellor: The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.
Anakin Skywalker: What happened to him?
Supreme Chancellor: He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic he could save others from death, but not himself.

Padmé: [crying] Anakin, you're breaking my heart! And you're going down a path I cannot follow!
Anakin Skywalker: Because of Obi-Wan?
Padmé: Because of what you've done... what you plan to do! Stop! Stop now; come back... I love you!
