Solo gives Kirk a withering glance, and Kirk falls to the floor writhing.

are we talking "Han shot first" Solo or "post-revisionist now-I'm-a-wimp" Solo?

Unretouched, first-run Episode 4 Solo vs. TOS Shatner Kirk.

I think Chalmun's Cantina Solo would kick "Prime Directive" Kirk in the junk while Kirk extends his hand for the pre-fight handshake.

Well, Kirk could try to build a gun (and gun powder) from raw materials. On the other hand, it may not work, as Solo isn't as slow as the transplanted Sleestack from the Land of the Lost.

Real Han would crush Shatner's Kirk. All Krik was interested was exchanging bodily fluids with females of any species.

No "blaster at your side" is certainly one consideration, but ion storms are the key. These have been known to transport Kirk (et al) into a "mirrored" universe of the bearded Mr. Spock. So it all depends on how this plays out. If Solo happens to be making his jump to light speed in the midst of an ion storm, he might well find himself in that alternative universe facing the "evil" Kirk.

in this alternate universe, might Solo come up with a bull whip?

Princess Leia with a bullwhip... Now that I'd like to see.

Uh, what was the original question?

OK, see, I see that word "crush" as the key. Han was just a slip of a boy, but Jim was a solidly-built fellow if there ever was one. If Kirk could get Solo off his feet -- and remember, he's the master of that running shoulder-slam move otherwise seen only in Noir films when an Irish cop needs to get into a locked apartment -- then I think my man James T. could sit on our little privateer friend, and pound his precious Farrah Fawcett-do into mush.

But apparently that's just me.

Forget Solo vs. Kirk. If you've been watching the public personality clash, you'd know the real fight that might happen soon is Sulu vs. Kirk.

Indeed, but lately Sulu has been trash talking Kirk, and vice-versa. There's even talk about a public debate/blood-letting to get everything out in the open. Howard Stern has volunteered to be the moderator. Lots of bad blood.

Ok, I'll stop hijacking.

I'm with EFH: My money is on Kirk and his infamous drop kick.
