Who would win?
« on: November 25, 2008, 02:24:24 AM »
My boss sent me a text message about a month ago to see what I thought, since he and his 8 year old son had reached an impasse.  His theory was that Starfleet Engineers could beam aboard the Death Star and blow it up from the inside, or that the greater speed and maneuverability of the Enterprise would allow it to win.

His son said, and I tend to agree, that one shot from the main gun on the Death Star would obliterate the Enterprise, and that no one on the Death Star would even feel the bump.  Starfleet engineers are pretty well useless against a thousand stormtroopers filling a hallway with hard light, and with numerous bays stocked with thousands of TIE fighters, I really don't see the Enterprise even getting close.

Since the Star Trek thread brought many of the geeks out of the closet, I thought I'd see what everyone here had to say!

They don't call it the "Death Star" for nothing. It gets my vote.  :tu:

Yeah but if Skywalker can drop a 'bomb" in a ventalation shaft no bigger than 2 meters Capt. Kirk could do it  8)

Kirk doesn't have the Force to guide him...  and I doubt you'd get the Enterprise into the trench on the Death Star!

I doubt that Capt. Kirk would have the "Force" with him. Anyways at least not the kind of force he would need to defeat Darth Vader and the Death Star.  :D

Come on Kirk has got an inside girl. she drops the sheilds he slips in un noticed blamo. Or they pick up a klingon ship use the cloaking device and knock the force right out of them. Yes I know they would have to uncloak before firing but by that time its to late

Lots of gun towers on the surface of the Death Star....

And I think a green chick would be noticed on the Death Star!

I do not remember seeing any females on the Death Star other than the Princess. Somehow I feel Darth Vader has gotten past the point of needing female companionship. Now there might be some stormtroopers that need that kind of entertainment. Anybody ever hear this short mp3 about stormtroopers?


I have this in .mp3 for a long time now but here is a youtube version.  :rofl:

 :rofl:  . I think we need to look at the facts guys ::) :D :D. X2 Death Stars X2 mass space junk . How many times has the Enterprise been obliterated ( I know a few ::) :D ) ? The Enterprise was designed by Leatherman , Victorinox & some consultancy from SOG  :D :D. The Death Star designed by Gerber on a bad day, looks impressive= think Suspension & Flik , but so many design flaws . The Enterprise's service history countless victories , Death Star was it one planet ? = no contest Star Fleet has the runs on the board.I feel like a right geek now  :D :D :D

This reminds me , was it the original Clerks movie that the main characters discussed the morality of blowing up the partially completed Death Star.The issue being the Empire to complete the project would have had to use innocent  independent contractors/tradesmen , just trying to make a living. Very funny. :D :D

Yeah Death Star had shields but for some reason it kept getting blown up.

I go with Yoda yeah I think that should have been an option :D

but I did vote for the Enterprise

Deathstar no question, as despite the power of the Enterprise (what one A,B,C,D,E?) it would never get close enough to cause any major damage, and as for beeming across, well Stormtrooper's may suck as soldiers (they really do) but they'd have weight of numbers on there side.

IMO the Death Star is like one of them "super guns" the germans used during the war, a very good punch but poor maneuverability
and easy target.

The Enterprise has powerful shields (which stopped the romulans super weapon by backing up ::) ) and uses warp drive for battle
maneuvers. All Kirk would have to do is stay outta the way of the main gun on the D.S. and slowly chip away to the chewy center!

and don't forget the Tribble factor, Kirk could beam some over and all you'd have is one great big "headless" hamster ball, rolling
around the galaxy! :D

IMOHO, the Federation can destroy the deathstar but the Empire would conquer the Federation. One thing the Federation don't have is a strong army which the Empire have with their storm troopers and don't forget Darth Vader.

Logically (yeh I know maybe not the best thing to apply) the Enterprise hasn't a chance.  The weakness in the Death Star's defence is in small fighters not larger craft.  The Death Star destroys several rebel ships at the end of Return of the Jedi.  If the Death Star's main gun can destroy planets what chance has the Enterprises' shields?  They seem to fall down if a Ferengi farts in the wrong direction.  ;)

Try not to be the person who blunders around and causes everyone else to get out the way.  Everyone else thinks you're a utter...

Yes the Death Star's main gun is awesome, but you have the big trouble of getting it to point in the right direction. A Death Star isn't the most maneuverable piece of equipment!! The Enterprise could quite easily stay out of the line of fire. However you do have the problem of the mound of Tie Fighters and point defence weapons :ahhh Assuming they could penetrate the Enterprises sheilds it would be bye bye Enterprise! But if it was just the Enterprise against the main gun of the Death Star the Enterprise would win hands down 8)

And even though the Death Star might have Darth Vader, don't forget that the Enterprise can always "remodulate the frequency" or "reverse the polarity" and save the day!! :ahhh

Enterprise all the way!!! The Empire is nothing butt brut force and sending massive amounts of troops dead on. Can compare their tactics you used during 18th & 19th century, you know, the armies stands face to face and shoot at each otter till someone looses.

Enterprise and Federation/Starfleet on the other hand is smart and cunning. They use there brains and have captains that is not afraid that an admiral will kill them if they FUBAR, hey, lets just face it, Kirk aren’t afraid of no one.

There is no problem that cannot be solved by the use of high explosives.
