1 IM capital ship can destroy a planet... I doubt Troy(the psyker chick) is going to die if they get borded by the IM. They don't care if what she looks like she's a psyker.

Your giving Trek to much credit.

Bones... useful, we'll keep him. Uhura (?) long-legged black lady... not sure of origins so torture for a little bit and then... slot.
Rest of the crew... penal colony.
Are you serious? Being Asian, Russian or Black doesn't make you 'xenos'. The Imperium isn't racist there are whole chapters representing different ethnic backgrounds. There's no need for it.

I'd agree with Waffles actually, mixing stories from two completely different sci-fi universes is never going to work. The Star Trek races would not be the way they are if they lived in the 40k universe. In the same way having the Star Trek show trying to shoe horn berserkers and nids in just wouldn't work. The crew are hardly going to beam down to a world of frothing monsters each week.

In Star Trek they also have Q. A kind of being that can modify everything like a god.

agree with you on that there is no real need for it, being a gay woman myself i suppose i might get hung drawn and quartered but i would like to think that the 41m has its own problems then petty rascism or the like. i can see the fact the two universes wouldn't work really but it might be a giggle in some way shape or form

The Star Trek ships have an edge in range and speed (not to mention being able to FTL without going through hell) and would probably be able to outrun/outmaneuver most, if not all, imperial ships. However, their ground combat abilities are sorely lacking; one could easily picture a single squad of space marines working through the entire crew of the Enterprise without any serious difficulty. So for the ST side to emerge victorious would rely on them adopting an extremely paranoid and conservative attitude, relying on long range stand-off combat tactics and hit-and-run raids. However, the 40k ships are noted for being extremely resilient; there's only so much damage that can be done to them at long range with ST:TNG weaponry.

I think the real problem is that the crews of the various ST ships do not have sufficiently developed paranoia; entire series of episodes begin with essentially the following dialog:

"Captain, we've found an unidentified object. Its huge!"

"Well, lets get close, drop shields, and scan it careful like."

"Sir, something's happening...."

<CUE PROTAGONIST OF THE WEEK COMPROMISING SHIP VIA PROXIMITY>

The first time a Trek ship makes that error against a ship with a space marine contingent is the last one.

I think even any 40k force they drop their shields to they would be dead....not counting the Tau

WOOOOH, I'LL STOP YOU THERE RIGHT NOW! Do NOT tar me with that racist crap. It was a light-hearted reply to a hypothetical topic, which you did not obviously see. As for the Imperium NOT being racist... it exterminates entire races who are not human. Don't even go there....

Just to let you know... I actually got a warning from the Moderators because of this stating I used racist language... and if you only knew what I do for a living, you would know that there is not a racist or any-ist bone in my body. Cheers anyway

For starters, we don't know what you do for a living and you shouldn't have assumed we even care. Whatever you meant by what you posted it came across as racist and offensive. I'm sorry if I am lacking in some gene that allows me to read sarcasm.
Your comments were not funny, even casual racism is offensive.
What you said isn't backed up in fluff terms, at all. The xenophobia of the Empire is based non human species, Eldar, Orks, Tau etc. many of which would quite happily destroy humanity in a heartbeat.
Racism based on ethnicity or skin colour doesn't even come into it.

What may be a light hearted reply in your opinion is offensive and racist in the view of others. The easiest way to avoid getting in trouble is to leave the racism behind and to post something intelligent.

I stand suitably admonished… apologies to anyone who might have taken offence by my comments. They were not supposed to be taken that way.

The Star Trek crew would be attacked immediately by anyone they came across and faced with superior numbers, would try to escape via warp speed only to find themselves in warp space without a Gellar field and would basically end up like the ship in Event Horizon.
