Since when have the Borg displayed any kind of collective mind power to do anything more than communicate? Sure, the Jedi couldn't influence their
mind, but a lightsaber through a Borg would result in two halves of Borg.
To compare the two isn't difficult.
If including Q in the equation, then Star Trek wins, simple as that, assuming Q decides to be on your side that day. The Force is nothing compared to
unlimited power of a God-like being. He could simply wish your fleet in a different galaxy or out of existence altogether.
Otherwise, this site breaks it down in full nerd glory: Star Wars wins.
If Q isn't in the equation, then Star Wars wins. For starters, Star Wars ships DO have shields (this is referenced several times even in the movies,
but especially in the novels).
Next, Star Wars ships are MUCH faster than the Federation. SW ships can cross a galaxy in hours or days, ST ships require decades. This is a MAJOR
Planetary shields. SW planetary shields mean their planets could survive weeks of bombardment, whereas Federation planets rely on orbital defenses
Communication, SW's Holonet provides real time communication across the galaxy. ST's subspace communications are much more limited (22 light years).
This means massive command and control advantage (not even counting instantaneous communication using the Force).
Data vs. a Jedi? Seriously? The Jedi picks him up using the Force and slams him repeatedly into a hard wall. (unless Data fires at him first, in which
case Data gets the redirected beam in the chest). Or a Sith fries him with Force lightning. Either way, Data is deactivated.
Look at the Eclipse Super Star Destroyer. This one ship would take out an entire Federation planet and it's defense fleet, while suffering only
