An unfinished Death Star would be in trouble. In "Obsession" Kirk had Scotty drain off some of the engines' antimatter and enclose it in a magnetic bottle so that they could use it as a weapon. It was the equivalent of 10,000 nuclear bombs. Normally I'd side with the Empire, but without shields this Death Star is in trouble.
Borg, "We are a species legendary for our ability to adjust our shields and weapons to negate our enemies' offense and defense and absorb their technology and tactics to make use of it ourselves, we are a single consciousness of a billion billion minds subsumed to the Collective will. So why the heck is there a Star Trek/Star Wars fic where we lose to the empire to the billions and it somehow takes us overwhelming losses to begin to think something isn't right?"
LMAO this is great, especially that last comment: "glorified farmboy managed it alone" LMAO! That aside the Feds definitely have the advantage, with photon torpedoes that can on occasion change phase and go right through a shield, and if you target one part of the shield it'll weaken and you can get the torpedo in there. On the other hand thats in the ST universe, in the SWs universe I think the shield works and stands as a whole?
In any case the ST ships are much more maneuverable than most SW ships of the size and class. ST has shields and most SW dont. SW lasers bounce off and ST kill/damage. and who can forget that Star Wars ships Cant hit the Broad Side of a BARN, Or DEATH Star, AKA Small MOON! Where as the Star Track can Hit anything no matter how small with great precision I donno about 90+% of the time?
The only down fall to the ST winning over SW is the fact that the Death Star Reminds me of the BORG!!! DUNN, DUNN, DUNN!
just so you know the DS2 is fully functional. So it's super laser would rip the federation ships apart in 36 min IF it only used it's super laser, and only hit one ship per shot(the DS2's super laser had a recharge of 3 min and advanced targeting computers capable of targeting the small cruisers of the alliance).
"Many of the truths we cling to, depend greatly on our own point of view."
As far as I'm concerned this is no different than a couple of capital ships from the star wars universe attacking the death star. The one thing I will give these Trek ships is that they're much, much faster than the slower, plodding cruisers from the GFFA. That would definitely give them an edge in being able to hit the death star hard and fast!
Their best plan of attack would be to bombard the station with strafing runs of phaser blasts and photon/quantom torpedos and send the Defiant in to take out the reactor. Ooooh, you know that would be exciting.
What would make this better is a more dramatic angle... If the camera was in the middle of the fleet or something, similar to the camera angle used in Episode IV when the Rebel fleet was attacking the first death star. What planet is that?
The saucers look like the refit type Constitutions from what I can see, but from my understanding, the Miranda's were go-betweens when it was decided refitting Constitutions wasn't cost effective. Though I would have to find that source to be positive (was a cool book too...need to remember what it was now...had awesome schematics and everything for all kinds of those ships).
