Star Trek Vs. Battlestar Galactica

What if the Galactica located Earth in the 23rd Century and unfortunately they need to trespass via Klingon space!!!!!! And of course the galactic geek question: “Who would win if the Enterprise fought the Galactica?” In the final year or so there’s been some interesting and bizarre debates about the “who would win?” So here’s Bobby Diablo’s Galactic Geek ground guidelines for this scenario taking location in DC Crisis Earth Universe 66.five: Section A: Battlestar Galactica 1) Quit referencing the new version of Galactica. No bullets on these old school ships: Lasers & Missiles had been established in the original show. The timeline of when the show occurs was sort of established by Galactica 1980, a 2nd version of the show Universal Studios is trying to forget about and so are we. 2) Quite few Galactica ships can go past Light Speed. (See: The Lengthy Patrol episode: recon viper) The Galactica was established at a max of Light speed. 3) Size wise, according to the show and show’s bible then: the warship is about three miles long. Thats a lot of 800 year old Colonial tin and rusted pipes. Must be pretty damn durable. Union labour built? 4) Power source: was established as Tylenium fuel, and shes a plasma gas guzzler. Section B) Star Trek (mostly old school) 5) In the episodes the Enterprise often battled at sublight. The Klingons reasoning I guess, is they like to see the “terror of thier enemies eyes” thru the windows. 6) Shields. In DS9 the Jem H’dar pounded the hell out of the Federation

Star Wars “X-Wing Fighter” v Buck Rogers “Starfighter”?

Question by Martin B: Star Wars “X-Wing Fighter” v Buck Rogers “Starfighter”?
What would win (on average) in a no-holds space dogfight in between an “X-Wing Fighter” from “The Emperor Strikes Back” and a “Starfighter” from the “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century” 1980′s series?

Armour, fire-energy, manoeuvrability, attack speed, and training regular of pilots supplied by relevant employers can be utilized to deduce the answer(s).

Very best answer:

Answer by Mark V
I do not feel the question here is the kill-factor of the ships rather than the skill of the pilots.
If we assume they’re manned by normal pilots and NOT Luke and Buck then I would have to say that the X-Wing would take it.
The Earth Defence Force pilots were rubbish on a grand scale! They couldn’t even manage Ardala’s fake pirates as they had been too reliant on the computers. It took Buck releasing his ship from the computer to win that fight!
The Rebel pilots on the other hand, although maybe not so extensively trained, are extremely motivated AND have the added bonus of getting used to ‘underdog’ status in a fight.
The X-Wing, even though a gorgeous ship, is not exactly state-of-the-art and its upkeep is most likely grab-as-grab-can.
The Starfighter will be the pinnacle of Earths’ space superiority technologies with teams of personnel to maintain it.
Now, I’ve flown X-Wings personally in just about every single sim ever made that attributes them so I’m familiar with the ships capabilities. I have but to find a Buck Rogers game that delivers comparable opportunities with the Starfighter, much to my dismay and chagrin!
One last point, I do not think the Starfighter has any type of shielding method, an additional main advantage to the X-Wing!
In closing, I will have to repeat that this fight, which I would PAY to see incidentally, will come down to who’s really flying the ships rather than any technical excellence or lack thereof in the ships themselves.
I rest my case…….

Give your answer to this question below!
