Star Trek Versus Star Wars Is The Trailer We Had To Have

Even with the two franchises in the hands of JJ Abrams, it’s unlikely we’ll see an official mash-up, beyond the odd background Easter egg and even then, that’s an ask. Instead, we’ll have to make do with fan efforts, like this one from Alex Luthor.

It combines the newer Star Treks with a mix of fresh and vintage Star Wars to create a battle-filled and uh, emotional, trailer where the two universes fight each other for… well… the stakes are not entirely clear.

The clip is mostly composed of creatively-cut footage, though there’s a bit of image manipulation to help it gel. I can’t say the old-school Starfleet has much hope against the Empire’s mighty forces, but who knows — with some help from the Klingons and the recalcitrant Romulans… anything is possible.
