The Oldest Debate in Geekdom by the-batcomputer The Oldest Debate in Geekdom by the-batcomputer
This is the crew of the Original Enterprise fighting the crew of the Next Generation Enterprise, from Star Trek, at the behest of Q (who is the guy sticking out of the wall) Clockwise from him is Scotty (TOS), who is being phasered by Geordi Laforge (TNG). Between them is Lt. Cmdr. Worf (TNG) choking two "red shirts" (TOS). Continuing clockwise we have Lt. Nyota Uhura (TOS) and Lt. Cmdr. Deanna Troi (TNG) engaged in a cat-fight. Mr. Spock (TOS) tries to use the vulcan nerve pinch on Lt. Cmdr. Data (TNG)... who is an android. Dr. "Bones" McCoy (TOS) shows Dr. Beverly Crusher (TNG) the back of his hand. Finally, as the centerpiece, Cpt. James T. Kirk (TOS) cold-cocks Cpt. Jean-Luc Picard (TNG).

Done in late 2006.

Wow... 400 Faves! Thanks Guys! I'm so glad everyone likes this!

Kirk is younger and stronger than Picard, in his physical prime. But Picard in his 30s might have been quite a mach for Kirk.

Might be nice to develop that Uhura vs. Deanna struggle further... ;)

Q WOULD instigate something like this.

Oh, it's such a hard choice for me...I mean, I prefer TNG as a series, but some of the characters are tough.

My call:

Picard vs. Kirk--Picard. I like Kirk a lot, but definitely Picard.
Bones vs. Bevs--Grrr, that's one of the toughies. I love McCoy to death, but Crusher's one of my favorite Trek characters on the whole, so her. 
Spock vs. Data--I, can't can't even ask this, I don't think. Somewhere there's a universal law against it. 
Uhura vs. Troi--Like both, but probably Uhura.
Work vs. dem red shirts--Well. Gee.
Geordi vs. Scotty--Another one that's nigh impossible! A draw!!

I love them both.  Winners and losers were determined purely on comedic value.
Yuzuki-Mizushima Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013
Shouldn't Chekov and Wesley be fighting or something?

I've seen both series...and I don't care who wins, so long as I get to watch Q! (Yes, I'm an obsessed John de Lancie fan, but I don't care! The man is too sexy for his own good!)
millylove1098 Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Q's eating a hotdog.
the-batcomputer Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That is correct.
millylove1098 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It's random but very Q

Poor Patrick Stewart getting the piss knocked out of him. >:3

To be honest, I think TNG is going to win. Spock is trying a NERVE pinch on an ANDROID, which as no actual biological nervous system, therefore, no nerves. Plus, there's Worf's Klingon strength, and Geordi's phaser. Finally, if Picard ends up bruised too much, I think Q might actually stop the fight, since he seems to care for Picard a bit.
the-batcomputer Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You may be right. :diny:

love it! Of course, the TOS crew wins!

Picard over Kurt, and Spok over bot.

Naturally Q just sits back and enjoys the show
BugsyMugsy Featured By Owner May 8, 2012
Nice picture but I thought Worf was holding Sulu and Chekov
Kitsune-Xin Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012
Lol. Awesome.
donobowk Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2012
hah I never got into the original series but I watched TNG with my dad when little and enjoyed the 2009 film, love this
newyorkdreams97 Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
So who won?
the-batcomputer Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think TOS does, by a narrow margin.
newyorkdreams97 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Seriously? Man, and I thought you might be cool... wanna reconsider your answer?
the-batcomputer Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm not really concerned with being cool. I do, for example, draw Star Trek fanart.
newyorkdreams97 Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Can't tell if you're joking or not but, dude, I totally was. Sorry if I offended you. I wasn't trying to start anything.
the-batcomputer Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm totally joking. I'm about the hardest person in the world to offend. People who get offended over comments on their fanart are just... sad.
newyorkdreams97 Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Cool. I wasn't sure. It's so hard to express sarcasm when you're not their to actually talk to the person and I totally agree... about the fanart, not TOS beating Next Gen.
Zelda12343 Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2012
XD. I love both series, but I think this is funny nonetheless.
the-batcomputer Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm glad you like it. I'm actually a fan of both, as well. It was totes done out of love.
oOAthenaOo Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
And then they both team up to fight the characters of Star Wars :XD: . (Don't get me wrong I love both ST and SW but I've never watched the Next Generation ones haha...
sushan89 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2011
I love both TOS and TNG! This is hilariously awesome!! :D And, I love Picard, but Kirk would definitely win in a fist-fight...after ripping his shirt of course! :D :D

...oh, Q, you sly devil! :love:

I love TOS, but TNG wins: Riker will enter and put an end to the fight

PS: the 2 redshrt shoud be goldenshirts Chekov and Sulu
NeonGlo Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
High-Larious. I love it, except McCoy would never backhand a lady. A Southern gentleman would slip her a hypo...
Ziriath Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2011
In Friday's child, he bitch-slapped a lady who refused to be examined and bitch-slapped him twice before. He just returned one.
JamieBarnes Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2011
Whew, this is mean. I like TNG a lot. Picard is so much better than old Kirk.
the-batcomputer Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That doesn't mean he could take him in a fistfight. Kirk was good at that.
Zombiesatemyyoghurt Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Love McCoy's moves!!!! :D
ScienceOfficerTMira Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2011

(Go Spock!)
f14ace Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2011
Kirk never had his ship hijacked by a fictional villain from a Sherlock Holmes novel. And letting said character have access to the Enterprise's tech manuals was an epic fail on Picard's part if you ask me. Kirk wins.
Ziriath Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2011
In fact, Kirk gave acces to Enterprise's tech manuals to Khan Noonien Singh. Spock doubted it was a wise decision, and he was right.
But TOS still wins.
kissbee Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2011
I like this but no Chekov or Sulu? It good also have had someone killing Wesley. Anyone TOS, TNG, ENT., DS9, VOY., TAS, SOMEONE JUST KILL THAT LITTLE SNOT! Ok sorry it is good. I love is *faves*
the-batcomputer Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks, and you make a valid point... I just ran out of space. Haha, get it, SPACE.
hermione-of-vulcan Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2011
A lot of the comments on this pic are "I think this one wins and thats that!" Why can't we agree that they are both awesome in their own ways? If it's strength we're talking about, TNG would win because of Data and Worf, but if it's a contest of overall awesomeness, then they are both winners because they're Star Trek.
Nobunaga1981 Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Personally, I don't care who wins; I just want to see the chaos ensue, lol.
taymuffin13 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011
i say TOS wins. Sorry, but they do.
