Star Wars meets Star Trek - Vader vs Spock by Robert-Shane Star Wars meets Star Trek - Vader vs Spock by Robert-Shane
Here's the third in my trilogy of pictures combining iconic characters from the Star Wars and Star Trek universes to mark the announcement that J.J. Abrams will direct the next Star Wars movie. And they don't get much more iconic than Darth Vader and Mr Spock!

J.J. Abrams is living out every fanboy's dream right now - so I was wondering whether he's thinking to himself... "I really like Star Trek, and I really like Star Wars too. But which one is better? There's only one way to find out... FIGHT!"

The other two pictures in the trilogy:

This is an original depiction of copyright characters I didn’t create and don’t own. This is fan art – created solely to show my artistic ability – it isn’t for sale and isn’t available for reproduction. I drew this in Photoshop using a Wacom pad – this is a low-res version of the original.

***Updated with an alternative version that leaves out the text from the originally posted version which read "JJ Loves Me Most!". Also removed some filters that made the original image look over-saturated. If anyone notices the difference - let me know which version you prefer!***

And the winner is...


(But seriously, while I'm a diehard fan of both Star Wars AND Star Trek, the fact remains that I am such a diehard Whovian that I will go down with the franchise.)

Gah! I love it! My boyfriend is a Trekkie and I am a total Star Wars Geek, and after he introduced me to Star Trek, I'd have to say Spock is totally my favorite character from the series!
In a fight though... I'd have to go with Vader, hands down.
He's known as the greatest Jedi Killer of all time for a reason y'know.
(Not to mention he's 7ft. tall, has super-cyborg strength,is heavily armored (no Vulcan neck pinch for you!), has mastered lightsaber combat, and can kill people with a thought.)
Did I mention that he's the Chosen One as well?

Sorry Spock, I love ya, but Vader's got you beat on this one.

haha - very well reasoned description of how Vader would win a fight between these - and I certainly don't disagree. But I think that if there ever were a story that brought these two together - Spock would be smart enough to make sure it never came down to a physical confrontation.

Maybe, but sometimes you just gotta have an ultimate throw down to decide things!

*LE GASP* This would be so amazing!!! One of the best crossovers one could think of!! I think Spock would win, but then again, my favorite character IS Spock.

I love it! I've always been a fan of Trek, while I never had the good chance to really get into Star Wars (like it all the same as well). I also like it that you make Spock older here, as in the Leonard Nimoy Spock. There are many things I like better about Star Trek before the reboot, and the old actors are definitely a part of that :)

Thanks very much. Leonard Nimoy will always be Spock to me (somewhere in between his look from the original series and the early movies). I think he made the most effective alien character with the minimal amount of make up and prosthetics!

Leonard Nimoy is the best Spock and will always be indeed. I like his early look and early 80s look as well. Such a classic character :)

Spock wins, logically. However, his face seems rather stretched in this picture. The jaw seems too long, and the forehead too short.
