This starship infographic compares the Millennium Falcon and the USS Enterprise. The space ships are from two very different, but equally beloved science fiction series. The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D is the main vessel from Star Trek while the Millennium Falcon YT-1300 492727ZED is the spacecraft piloted by Han Solo and Chewbacca in Star Wars.

While in many ways, this is like pitting apples and oranges against each other, the starship infographic includes many interesting insights. The graph looks at crew statistics, such as the crew to passenger ratio. It also examines travelling speed, ship size, weapons and shields. There is also a portion that analyzes the geometric shape of their enemies, the spherical death star and the cubed Borg. While this is interesting to note, it seems irrelevant.
