In comics, STAR TREK has crossed over with Green Lantern, Planet of the Apes, Doctor Who, Legion of Super-Heroes - and Transformers, too (the Transformers one will be published soon, the Autobots will meet the Trek crew from THE ANIMATED SERIES).

Out of the above, I've only read the Trek/POTA crossover. I thought it was done surprisingly well. I was extremely skeptical about those universes combining, but I think they did it very, very well.
Now, for STAR WARS.
A friend told me I'm obsessed with crossovers (I am, sue me). I stupidly wrote a Batman/Asterix the Gaul crossover as a kid so that's where my "sin" started. I don't think the concept of crossovers should ever be overdone, but whether it's Superman/Spider-Man - or something different like Star Trek/Transformers - I like the occasional novelty.
I guess STAR WARS will never do it, though. I am presuming that Disney would never allow it. Lucasfilm would never have allowed it, either.
I have a confession to make: I have craved a STAR WARS/STAR TREK crossover (in comic form) since childhood. Who wouldn't want to see Spock put the Vulcan nerve pinch on Vader? Or Picard in Jabba's palace? If I could be granted one crossover wish by a genie, STAR WARS/STAR TREK would be the one.
Other than that, I don't know. As a kid, when Marvel Comics first published a Star Wars title, I was naive enough to hope they'd do a crossover with something like the Guardians of the Galaxy or Nova.
I never expected STAR TREK to cross over with the properties mentioned in my first paragraph. It happened, though. But I would be kidding myself if I thought STAR WARS would one day go down that path, right?
