Re: Thoughts on merging/melding B5 and ST technology

i'd put Federation technology above Centauri... they're only just figuring out Plasma weapons during the B5 arc, still using X-Ray lasers on their capital ships... neither Minbari or Centauri have any clue on shield or transporter technology though...

As for a way to 'blend' the two, i'd actually be tempted to jump back a bit, perhaps during the Dilgar War for B5 timeline, and have some Federation technology / ship fall into Earth Alliance hands during that time... then explain how the Earth Alliance / Timeline changed due to the inclusion of Federation tech...

say you use the Enterprise NX... think of the tech the Earth Alliance could get from the wreckage of the ship... Warp Drive, artificial technology are just the start... even the NX is a step or two above anything the EA has access to during the Dilgar War

In Russia, a 122 year old man has passed away, he credited his long life to abtaining from alcohol, tobacco and women. His last words were "I've made a huge mistake."
