|Arkeoptrix||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.|

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.

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...."

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

The crew are hardly going to beam down to a world of frothing monsters each week.

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.
