Impossible. If Q was present, and Picard still alive and captaining a starship, Q would be INSTIGATING this absurd war as one of his patented Picard mindgames, and as such Star Trek would ultimately win (likely after Earth is destroyed, the Borg annihilated in a scene resembling Wolf 359, Enterprise is crippled by Executor, a surrdender made (but not acknowledged), an abandon ship order issued, the self destruct turned on, Picard trapped on the ship, every last escape pod popped by TIE fighters, and Picard openly cries in front of Q in some heart-touching scene where he's supposed to learn a lesson but really just ends up shouting at Q.) because Q would just put everything back to normal.
Without Q, Star Wars would win no question because the universes are inherently incompatible - Star Trek is imagined as being fairly realistic picture of our own universe, a few hundred years from now, and Star Wars is imagined as being a fantastic place where regular physics aren't taken into account, the logistics and economics behind building absurdly massive ships with unlimited firepower can be ignored. Furthermore, the larger ship sizes of Star Wars are because of the emphasis on Carrier Warfare, because that makes great cinematic sequences (and provided a way for Luke Skywalker to be a hero) whereas economics, non-military missions, and other such things make Star Trek ships largely standalone vessels, which don't even really have effective fighter screen capabilities.
However, I don't think the ship to ship combat would be as straightforward as it initially appears - Star Trek ships are typically heavily shielded, and their hulls do not exhibit any particular weak points making them more or less invulnerable to fighter assault anyway, and I've never really seen or heard of any instances where a capital ship slugfest was actually won by one capital ship destroying the other - it always involves boarding parties (Star Trek handheld weapons are MUCH more advanced than Star Wars handheld weapons, plus security crews have been known to do such things as cutting life support to compromised decks in desparate situations) or some heroic fighter squadron (which we've already determined is a moot point). Star Wars ships, on the other hand, are typically either unshielded, lightly shielded, or shielded by some external source.
Also, my Star Wars battlefront experience tells me that Star Wars ships tend to be geared towards broadside or head-on combat, with their firing arcs being useless outside of those conditions. Star Trek combat tends towards the vertical.
