New Book: "Star Wars vs. Star Trek: Could the Empire Kick the Federation¹s A**? And Other Galaxy-Shaking Enigmas"

What's the story?

A paperback compendium jam-packed with detailed information about both universes, as well as trivia, quizzes, quotes, and information drawn from these two iconic settings

This debate is so heated, even Boba Fett (actor Jeremy Bulloch) and Tuvok (actor Tim Russ) got in on the action to write the forewords! So phasers on stun and light sabers at the ready - it's time for the duel to begin.

About the book:

Could a Jedi knight use his light saber to deflect a beam from a phaser?
Which aliens are cooler: the Cardassians or the Chazrach?
Have any Federation ships ever made the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs?
And most important . . . in a fight between the Empire and the Federation, who would win?

From Tribbles to Lightsabers - enter the book that attempts to quell this decades-long debate: "Star Wars vs. Star Trek: Could the Empire Kick the Federation’s Ass? And Other Galaxy-Shaking Enigmas" (Adams Media, a division of F+W Media, May 2011).

Ever since Princess Leia's starship hove into sight on the silver screen, fans of Star Wars and Star Trek have been debating these questions. Now, side-by-side, they can line up aliens, technology, story points, weaponry, and heroes from the two great science fiction/fantasy stories of our age.
