Welcome to the greatest space adventure showdown in the galaxy: Star Wars vs Star Trek! two biggest franchises, with some of the most adored characters in fiction: Darth Vader, Spock, the chosen one, Luke Skywalker, and Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Han Solo, need we name more?
Aside from both having the word star in their titles, the two franchises share many similarities: Both franchises have their origins in the space western subgenre, both depict societies consisting of multiple planets and species and both universes also derive significantly from history and ancient mythology.
So without further ado, let’s boldly explore these two brilliant creations by facing off their best warriors, monsters, spaceships, planets, and whatnot. Are you ready?
Star Wars vs Star Trek: James T. Kirk or Han Solo?
The captain of the Millennium Falcon. One of the most beautiful things about him is that he is not a perfect, omniscient, super-precise pilot. He’s just a good one. He is always on the edge of what is possible. As he puts it: “Never tell me the odds!” The Millennium Falcon is a freighter but he flies her like a fighter and doesn’t hesitate to do whatever he thinks is necessary at the moment. Flying out of a cargo hold or into a planet’s atmosphere at light speed. Flying into an asteroid field, hiding on the surface of an ISD. He has vision, and, he believes, luck. He has an extreme amount of luck on his side when it comes to staying alive. Plus, he has achieved Kessel Run in 12 roundabout parsecs!
Captain James T. Kirk
Capt. James T. Kirk is the commanding officer of the starship USS Enterprise. Arguably one of the most famous captains in the history of Starfleet, Kirk is energetic, a skilled tactician, thoughtful, and dedicated to his ship, crew, and mission. However, he is also a great space pilot and a natural racing driver, as he proved when he stole his father’s car at a young age and evaded a futuristic motorcycle cop. He likes piloting so much that he takes the ship’s wheel whenever he gets the chance. Once he piloted the USS Constellation starship inside the Planet Killer and detonated the ship’s engines destroying the Doomsday Machine. He also took the wheel when he piloted the confiscated K’normian ship at Kronos. In some cases, Kirk showed to have some tricky maneuvers that are not in the book, and his quick reactions as a flier saved everyone’s lives.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Mando or Tevrin Krit?
Living in an unforgiving landscape, where society is collapsing, Din Djarin aka Mando earns a living collecting bounty. Traveling the far reaches of the Galaxy in his starship, the Razor Crest, Mando made a reputation for himself as one of the most formidable hunters in the galaxy. Djarin is well-equipped, battle-hardened, and brutally efficient. He has fought Moff Gideon, a high-ranking Imperial warlord, and emerged victoriously. Indeed, he didn’t exactly kill Moff Gideon but he could have if only he double-checked.
Krit is a bounty hunter from the planet Tellar Prime, who owns the merchant ship D-756. He got the con artist and thief Harry Mudd in chains and managed to turn him over to the authorities despite all Mudd’s tricks. Later, Tevin learned the man in his possession was an android duplicate of Mudd.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Death Star or Borg Cube?
The Death Star was a planet-destroying space station, constructed by the Galactic Empire. It had multiple hyperdrives that allowed it to travel at light speed, which is how it was able to follow the Falcon to Yavin so quickly. It had a diameter of 160km and its generators powered the super lasers. However, the Death Star did have a problem targeting ships with its main super-ray weapon. It was destroyed at the Battle of Yavin. Its annihilation was considered a fatal hit to the Empire and one of the Rebel Alliance’s first major victories.
A kind of spaceship used by the Borg Collective and one of the main types of vessels in the Borg fleet. A Borg Cube is 28 cubic km or about 3 km per side. It is one of the most destructive weapons in the galaxy. In case of attack, the cube can beam a large number of drones onto the enemy’s ship. The drones promptly begin assimilating the ship from the inside, as they did with Enterprise E in First Contact. The drones can also assimilate enemy troopers and gain their knowledge, which can help them find the ship’s weaknesses. Another tactic that the Borg Cubes use when engaging another ship is to seize it with a tractor beam. Once locked on, the tractor beam also quickly drains the ship’s shields, leaving it defenseless against destruction or assimilation.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Data or C 3-PO?
As a half-Vulcan, Spock is much stronger than the average human. Vulcans are even described, per the literary universe, as being slightly stronger than KLINGONS. And Spock, as a career officer, is probably in better shape than the majority of Vulcans to boot. In the original series: Is There In Truth, No Beauty? It takes 5 men to hold and pin Spock when he “goes mad” at the sight of the Medusan ambassador. In the original series: Is There In Truth, No Beauty? It takes 5 men to hold and pin Spock when he “goes mad” at the sight of the Medusan ambassador. Spock even defeated the augmented Khan in Star Trek: Into Darkness.
Although Chirrut lacks force abilities, he can “listen” to the Force. The Force is his ally. It guides him and allows him to understand his surroundings as a blind man better than those who could see. It can be argued that Chirrut is more in tune with the Force than some of the Jedi are. Chirrut Imwe’s devotion to spirituality helped him overcome his blindness and become a formidable warrior, and his skills in martial arts were said to have given him supernatural powers that would alter his heart and oxygen intake.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: The Millennium Falcon or The USS Enterprise?
The Millennium Falcon
Evidence supports that of all the Spaceships in the history of Moviemaking, the Millennium Falcon is by far and large the most iconic and most beloved battleship by a country mile. It may look like an old beat-up piece of junk, but is part of its appeal! After all, everyone loves an underdog. Having said that, the Falcon has some surprises up its sleeves. It is armed with quad laser cannons, blaster cannons, and concussion missiles. The Millennium Falcon uses fusion and fission reactors, capable of traveling around 16,500 times the speed of light, called hyperdrives. It is also equipped with deflector shields to block incoming attacks and sensors that can scan hundreds of thousands of miles away. The Millennium Falcon is the fastest in the Alliance fleet and has a very impressive resume concerning its accomplishments and capabilities.
The USS Enterprise
The main Star Trek ship and setting for various TV series and films in the Star Trek franchise. It is armed with photon torpedos which are matter/antimatter devices that travel at light speed and is also equipped with phasers, a cloaking device, and transporter technology. Warp drive on Starship Enterprise uses a matter/antimatter reactor, which can reach speeds of 21,000 times the speed of light. Although the Enterprise is very good for long-distance travel, the ship is quite slow at maneuvering in space. It has deflector shields, a form of a force field, which blocks incoming attacks. These shields can weaken and collapse with continuous bombardment. It also is equipped with sensors that can scan ships that are trillions of miles away, as well as sensors capable of reading the DNA of opposing crews.See also: Harry Potter vs Star Wars: The Ultimate Battle!
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Snoke’s Boudoir or Klingon Bird-of-Prey?
The Supremacy, nicknamed “Snoke’s Boudoir”, is the personal flagship of Supreme Leader Snoke, leader of the First Order. It is a massive and intimidating Star Dreadnought six times the size of Mt. Everest that also serves as the mobile headquarters of the First Order. It took 32 sublight engines and at least six fusion reactor complexes–all improvements from the designs of the Death Star one & two to get the ship moving at speed. But, it carried a staggering array of firepower with enough heavy turbo lasers, anti-ship missile batteries, heavy ion cannons, and tractor-beam projectors to make even a Super Star-Destroyer feel inadequate. This Star Dreadnought could carry in its hangars up to 8 of the First Order’s Resurgent-Class Star Destroyers, as well as a full complement of TIE/fo and TIE/SF Fighters, and more than two million personnel, including the Stormtroopers, Officers, and the crew required to operate the massive command ship.
Star Trek’s most familiar and popular alien ship. It is a type of frigate. The Klingon Empire uses it when it served the Klingon Defense Forces. The Bird-of-Prey served in a variety of mission roles, including that of a scout, raider, patrol ship, and cruiser. It was described to be equipped with the Klingon Empire’s “best weapons” and “finest warriors”.The Bird-of-Prey has a very low manpower requirement (a mere 12) and decent offensive/defensive ratings. The typical offensive arsenal of the warship included two forward-firing wing-mounted cannons, two-photon torpedo launchers – positioned fore and aft – and deflector shields.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Rogue One Team or The Next Generation Team?
Rogue One Team
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story introduced us to the less glamorous side of the galactic civil war and how it affected people living under the ruthlessness of the Empire. It also served to answer a really big SW question and long-time plot hole: Why did the Death Star have such a glaring weakness and how did the rebels know of its existence? The ragtag squad of Rogue One changed the course of history in the Star Wars universe. Without this team of men and women broken by the Empire, the Rebel Alliance would have never destroyed the Death Star! They stole the Death Star plans from the Empire and the rest is history. To pull off such a mission requires a lot, including intelligence, charisma, and skill. Each of the Rogue One teams carries different abilities and skills to the battlefield. Some provide more of a physical and tactical challenge to the Empire. Meanwhile, other members are simply not built for fighting on the battlefront.
The Next Generation Team
Star Trek wasn’t just a story about Captain Kirk and Spock. TNG had a lot of great episodes in its seven-season run and the series grew as it went along and delivered some great cliffhangers. It introduced us to a captain who is not just a man of action, but also a diplomat. It also had a greater diversity of cast than the Original Series. We got to see several characters developing and maturing both in their careers and personal lives, Geordi and Worf changed positions from Ops and Navigation officers to department heads. We also saw Worf becomes a family person and loses his Klingon heritage. Data progressed down the Pinocchio path and became more human-like. We didn’t get to see those types of developments in The Original Series crew during their run.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Seven of Nine or Jyn Erso?
Seven of Nine
Highly popular among 16–30 male fans, this blonde in a skintight catsuit was once a Borg drone. She was liberated by the crew of the USS Voyager and became a part of it. Having a former borg aboard allowed a whole bunch of new story arcs. Also, Seven’s continuing attempts to fit in with a human crew enabled the writers to comment on human society in very interesting ways. Seven of Nine was a believable character that had physical strengths and a believable personality that was consistent throughout the whole show.
Unlike your typical Jedis/rebels, Jyn Erso was never really interested in being the hero, but her character develops and she steps up in the end when needed to and saves the rebellion. She was the child of rebels whose parents were both killed before her eyes by the Empire. After that, she became bitter and felt abandoned by everyone. Rogue One is Jyn’s journey back to believing in the hope her parents tried to bring to the darkness of the empire.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Chewbacca or Worf?
Some say he is the real hero of Star Wars! Chewbacca fought in the Clone Wars and helped Yoda escape the clone troopers. After seeing the Republic fall, he goes underground and joins up with Han Solo to make a living through the black market, because after being a commander against the Empire, there’s no way he’d be permitted to earn an honest living. Then he helps a know-it-all desert kid escape from the Empire, rejoins the Rebel Alliance, and helps bring down Emperor Palpatine.
Nobody ever asks Chewie if he’s cool with getting mixed up with the Rebels again. He could have been like, “no, one war was enough for me,” but instead he enlists for a second tour without being asked. Due to their size, their arboreal civilization, and their relatively non-industrialized society, the average Wookiee is substantially stronger than your average human.
Your average Wookiee is probably still stronger than most humans that are considered “Strong.” Chewbacca is not your average Wookiee, he’s a bit of a war hero, a bit of a fighter (a brawler, really), and a bit of a scout, and Wookiee scouts do stuff like climb tall trees without ropes or convenient handholds. Additionally, he’s over 200 years old, so he’s been using muscles most musclemen don’t even know about longer than the average muscleman lives. In summary, you would want this guy by your side in a battle!
Worf is a badass and considered one of the strongest and toughest Klingons around. This dude has probably punched unconscious 45% of the bad guys The Enterprise came across. He has proved many times that he will face his enemy and die in battle if he has to. Worf usually carries around his basic weapons, a phaser, a bat’leth, and a Mekh’leth, which he operates with great skills. He also showed high tolerance to pain.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Yoda or Old Spock?
Master Yoda is one of the strongest Jedi and he is also old and wise. Here are some things we can learn from him. “That is why you fail.” This is Yoda being brutally honest with Luke, who breathlessly says, “I don’t believe it,” after his Master raises an X-wing from the Dagobah swamp. It’s a definitive statement that comes from Yoda’s years and years of experience as a Jedi and a teacher, and it cuts through both Luke and the audience. “Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is. In Attack of the Clones, Obi-Wan is trying to locate the planet Kamino, which has been erased from all records in the Jedi Archives. When he approaches Yoda — in the middle of a lightsaber class with younglings — for help, Yoda turns to the students. And one of them nails it, saying that it’s missing because someone erased it. Yoda’s response was, “Truly wonderful, the mind of a child.”
This shows that despite all he’s seen, Yoda doesn’t exclude the thoughts and opinions of others, no matter their size or age, and that teachers can still learn from their students. “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” Yoda’s most memorable quote, bar none, and one of the greatest in all of Star Wars. This is another line from the X-wing sequence on Dagobah, and are the last instructions the Jedi Master gives Luke before he attempts to raise his fighter from the swamp. Within the scene, it was a lightning bolt of dialogue, another great nugget of undeniable wisdom that teaches Luke to have a more serious mind. Yoda had consistently tried to teach Luke to focus on the present, and essentially, to grow up.
At this moment, with these words, he makes it clear. Outside of the film, the line has become a modern slogan — a reminder to commit oneself to something completely, win or lose. Would you follow Yoda’s advice if your life depended on it?
In the 2009 movie Star Trek with Chris Pine as Kirk, and Zachary Quinto as Spock, we got to meet “older Spock” from the year 2387. This elder version of Spock advises Kirk throughout the story until Kirk is promoted to captain and given command of the Enterprise
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Padme Amidala or Me Hani Ika Hali Ka?
Consistently depicted as a politician dedicated to upholding the ideals of democracy. One who generally tried to avoid war if it could be avoided. Empress Padme practically had to be forced off Coruscant by Palpatine “for her safety” (aka, getting her out of the way) because she didn’t want the galaxy to go to war while there was something she could do to prevent it.
Me Hani Ika Hali Ka
Also known as “Po”, she comes from the planet Xahea. Because her parents and brother had died, she had to take on the mantle of the queen. However, shortly before her coronation, Po fled Xahea, not feeling ready for the responsibility. Po made her way to the USS Discovery as a stowaway. There, Tilly encouraged her to be the person to shepherd her people through the transition, and Po returned to Xahea.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Jabba, Hutt Clan Leader, or Raimus, Orion Syndicate?
Jabba, Hutt Clan Leader
Just like any crime lord, Jabba got by influence and intimidation. His power was the result of the same control and ruthlessness exerted by Michael Corleone or Tony Soprano. Jaba’s criminal organization was centuries in the making, as Hutts are long-lived (Jabba was over 600 years old before Return of the Jedi.) His control of smuggling, slavery, drug trading, etc. on the other Outer Rim led to governments tip-toeing around him. Though not depicted well, Jabba is very ingenious and tactical as well. He has bought and paid well every being in his “court” who has any Star Wars weapon or useful skills- “his kind of scum.” He can afford pets like a Rancor, has a sail barge, and has an extensive galactic network. Therefore, we must assume he runs a pretty tight origination.
Raimus, Orion Syndicate
A notable boss of the Orion Syndicate, Raimus has managed to bribe a Starfleet officer to become his mole. From that point on, the Starfleet officer acted as an informant, informing Raimus as to the identities of undercover operatives working for Starfleet Intelligence. Chief Obrien was recruited by Starfleet Intelligence to expose the mole and discovered that Raimus had entered into an alliance with the Dominion in a plan to destabilize the Federation-Klingon alliance.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Q or Darth Sidious?
A being who claims to have nearly omnipotent abilities and who, most of the time, appears to the crew of the USS Enterprise-D looking like a normal person. Q is a member of extra-dimensional beings known as the Q Continuum, members of which possess immeasurable power over time, space, the laws of physics, and reality. Even though Q claims to have omniscient knowledge, and to have existed for eons, his personality is something like a teenager, and often interacts with the crew of Enterprise-D to manipulate them into doing something he wants. Q’s true nature is explained to be beyond human comprehension and he usually serves as a source of annoyance to Captain Jean-Luc Picard who seems to be his ‘favorite human.’ When the character is initially encountered in the Next Generation series he is presented as an omnipotent being judging humanity’s worthiness to explore the stars. On other occasions, he petitions the crews of the Enterprise and the USS Voyager for assistance!
The most powerful Sith Lord in the history of the galaxy. Darth Tyranus—aka Count Dooku—perceived him through the Force as a black hole of the Dark Side. He was a master of every form of lightsaber combat, able to cut down Agen Kolar, Saesee Tiin, and Kit Fisto—three of the greatest lightsaber duelists the Jedi ever produced—with ease. Palpatine could conjure thunderstorms of Sith lightning, create armies of monsters and human-droid hybrids with Sith alchemy, and use telepathy and telekinesis to shatter the minds of his enemies, dominating them with his will or turning them into puerile servants. There was no art of the Dark Side that Sidious didn’t master. He was, put simply, the ultimate Sith.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Khan Noonien Singh or General Grievous?
Khan Noonien Singh
Starting as a very famous ruler in Earth’s history, Khan is the leader of a race of genetically engineered superhumans who tried to take over the world in the 1990s. He was written in history as having been killed at the end of the Eugenics Wars, when all of the supermen were rounded up, with him and some others missing and presumed long dead. However, in reality, Khan and about 70 other supermen escaped in a “sleeper ship,” seeking to colonize a planet in another star system; even though the ships were only built for interplanetary travel, rather than interstellar.
As a result, they were in space for over 200 years, before the Enterprise found their ship. When he was revived by the Enterprise crew, he believed that humanity had become weak and stagnant, and he sought to improve mankind in the 23rd century, believing that they had become dependent on machines. So he took over the ship and tried to recruit the crew; but nobody would follow him, even under the threat of death. When Khan realized that he could not live in mainstream society as he imagined it, he went from a benevolent dictator to an evil dictator He is Kirk’s greatest adversary, though certainly not his most frequent.
Famous for his ruthlessness and extensive cybernetic enhancements, Grievous inspired fear as he traveled across the galaxy, invading entire worlds and engaging the Jedi Knights of the Republic. The epic cyborg was undoubtedly more powerful than the average Jedi of his time. He even got his lightsabers from the Jedi he killed by himself. He was often referred to as the Jedi hunter. His robotic body parts allow for an extremely offensive fighting style that few can beat. He basically creates a barrier with his 2 lower lightsabers and then uses the top 2 to rain blows down on his opponent. His strategy requires a God-level defense and quick strategic thinking to defeat. However, Grievous can’t use the Force, leaving him at a massive disadvantage to any Jedi or Sith.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Poggle the Lesser or Kahless?
Poggle the Lesser
Archduke Poggle the Lesser rules over all the Stalgasin hive colonies on Geonosis, answering only to Queen Karina the Great. Poggle is a shrewd, ruthless, conniving leader who instills respect and fear in all his subjects, but it’s how he achieved this position of power that’s the most frightening thing; especially regarding his relationship with his cane. It’s rumored that Poggle the Lesser came into power by staging a brutal, bloody coup on his political adversary, Hadiss the Vaulted, Geonosis’ former Archduke. He not only murdered his rival… but actually killed him, dismembered his corpse, removed the flesh from his victim’s bones, and then fashioned his limb fragments into some kind of bizarre-looking pimp cane! Now, that’s a merciless ruler for you!
Kahless the Unforgettable was a legendary Klingon figure. He was the first Emperor of the Klingon Empire, meaning he was the first to unite all the Klingon tribes. He was also known as the “greatest warrior of them all”. From a purely external historical perspective, Kahless the Unforgettable was a warrior and conqueror with peers in his world. In the course of his wars and conquests, he likely ordered the deaths of millions, was probably a whoremonger and worse, and was generally what we humans consider to be evil. The Klingons have disregarded his misdeeds and imbued him with a sort of divinity. His philosophies are taught to Klingon children. They sing songs about him one thousand two hundred years after his death. There are only around a half dozen people across all of human history that have inspired that level of devotion and respect. So from an outsider’s perspective, who assigns morality to their view, Kahless is a monster. To the Klingons, he is a demigod who forged an empire and drove out the demons that tormented his people.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: The Empire or The Federation?
The Galactic Empire is a fascist galactic government. It is a tyrannical, oppressive state with an overaggressive military, discriminatory policies, and unfair rules. It was founded and ruled by Emperor Palpatine, who was secretly a strong Sith Lord called Darth Sidious. Strong centralized control can ideally keep the galaxy safe. However, it didn’t quite pan out that way, because Emperor Palpatine was the manifestation of evil. But it could have!
The United Federation of Planets is an interstellar union of multiple planetary nation-states that operated semi-autonomously under a single central government. It was founded on the values of liberty, equality, peace, and justice, to further the universal rights of all sentient life. Well, that’s the opposite of what the Star Wars Galactic Empire stands for! However, as peace-loving, as it is, the Federation does have a military force in the form of Starfleet. Starfleet isn’t just for exploration but is also the military force behind the entire United Federation of Planets. The United Federation of Planets is the biggest, wealthiest, and most technologically advanced of all the major Alpha and Beta Quadrant powers, comprising hundreds if not thousands of member nations.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Starfleet or The Imperial Navy?
Starfleet is peacekeeping and deep space exploration armada. However, it is also the Federation’s Space Navy incorporated to maintain defense functions. It is powerful enough to compete with interstellar empires like the Romulans and the Klingons, AND powerful enough to create and deliver a genocidal weapon to the Dominion AND the Borg Queen in her “hive mind.” Having said that, Starfleet isn’t built as a military, which seriously lessens its capability to fight a war.
The Imperial Navy
The Imperial Navy is the naval branch of the Galactic Empire’s military. The primary weapons utilized by the Imperial Navy are laser-based ship-to-ship batteries. It is also equipped with a vast range of proton torpedoes and ion cannons which as particle-based weaponry. The Imperial Navy has 12+ Superstar destroyers, 250k+ Imperial II-class ships, millions of smaller cruisers/frigates/gunboats, and 50000+ battlecruisers. Each ship carries at least a half squadron of fighters with some housing a wing of tie fighters/bombers/interceptors/predators.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Rancor or Hengrauggi?
Rancors are semi-sentient Star Wars creatures, monster beasts, and predators from the planet Dathomir. A Rancor is about the size of an elephant and can fit a person in its hand. Their average height is 5 meters and their average mass is 1,650 kg. They possess fiercely tough hides resistant to a lot of conventional weapons and have some seriously threatening teeth and claws.
A predatory creature native to the ice planet Delta Vega. It lives in an icy climate and has sharp pointed teeth and hundreds of eyes. It also has a protrusion that serves as a whip that they can use to grasp their prey. It’s nearly 30 feet tall.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Tatooine, the desert planet, or Qo’noS, the homeworld of the Klingon species?
Tatooine, the desert planet
Tatooine is the birthplace of Anakin (Darth Vader) Skywalker and where Luke Skywalker grew up with his aunt and uncle. Also, the Hutt crime cartel is based there. It is otherwise an unimportant planet. As Luke told C-3PO, “Well if there’s a bright center to the universe, you’re on the planet that it’s farthest from.” Tatooine is a thinly inhabited desert planet located in the galaxy’s Outer Rim Territories.
Qo’noS, homeworld of the Klingon species
According to Star Trek Into Darkness, Qo’noS is located in the Omega Leonis system 112 lightyears away in the constellation of Leo. It is the capital planet of the Klingon Empire and the Klingon species’ homeworld. It is described as a “planet of caves”.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Ewoks or Tribbles?
Ewoks live high up in tree villages. Over centuries they have developed a keen sense of the forest, and are sharply attuned to approaching threats, such as the Gorax and its enormous boar-wolf, who aided the Gorax as a hunting companion whilst going on Ewok raids. Ewoks are known to throw some of the biggest and best parties in the whole galaxy, including music, food, and dancing!
Although an adorable race of Fluffy cute characters, the Tribbles threatened to bring the Klingon Empire to its knees. Not by fighting, but by simply doing what Tribbles naturally do: eat and reproduce. They crippled both the Enterprise and the K-1 Space Station in a matter of HOURS. So, no wonder Worf freaked out after seeing one.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: Nien Nunb or Keenser?
Nien Nunb is a pilot, an arms dealer, and a smuggler from the planet of Sullust. He had large black eyes, as well as large ears and jowl, and had light skin. Due to his piloting skills, he was selected by Calrissian to co-pilot the Millennium Falcon during the Battle of Endor
A Starfleet engineering division crewmember, Keenser served on the USS Enterprise. He is from an unknown species. It is known that his species required very little food.
Star Wars vs Star Trek: First Order Tread Speeder or Argo type ground vehicle?
First Order Tread Speeder
First Order Treadspeeders are rough, shielded patrol bikes with a design that grants greater traction on unstable terrain like sands and can avoid countermeasures that jam traditional speeders. Its length is 4.17 meters, and it’s armed with laser cannons. Treadspeeders served during the war between the First Order and the Resistance.
Argo-type ground vehicle
The Argo-type ground vehicle is a type of all-terrain vehicle utilized by the United Federation of Planets for away missions. It has special off-road tires and soft suspension that let it grip and turn with ease on rocky or sandy terrains. It is usually armed with a phaser cannon.
