Species 8472 vs The Vorlons

I have seen some v.s. discussions at trekbbs (like Dominion vs the Borg) so I was wondering how Voyager's Species 8472 would do against Babylon 5's Vorlons? Both seem to have organic ships. Who would win?

The Vorlons. They could destroy planets, man. Planets.

^So did 8472. And with just 6(?) small ships instead of a big blower-upper-gun.

Okay, I'll admit I've never watched much of Voyager.

In had-to-hand combat, Vorlons are nutters. It took what? Five or Six Shadows to take down Kosh? Or 20 security officers with PPG rifles PLUS direct output from the fusion reactor PLUS an arse kicking from Kosh to take down Ulkesh! An 8472? One jumped up Hirogen. No contest.

The Vorlons.

Not only in firepower, but they would confuse the buggery out of Species 8472 in the process.

My quatloos are on the Vorlons. No specific reason other than that I could take them seriously, something the stick-monsters of VOY never achieved.

Major demerits for wussing out just because Sheridan yelled at em, tho.

Well unless Species 8472 can talk the Vorlons out of utterly obliterating them like Sheridan was able to, I think the answer is pretty obvious.

Neither race would stand a chance against the might and power that is the Daleks.

Not a chance, the Vorlons have the ability to go through doors that are too small for their encounter suits, like toilet seat wearing ninjas!
