Re: Starship Enterprise vs. Battlestar Galactica

Enterprise has shields, Galactica makes pretty sparks as she disintengrates...

Star Destroyer vs. Galactica. That would be fucking cool, and much more apples vs. apples.

The Enterprise D hands down; Unless of course Data is hearing All Along The Watchtower in his head. a better contest would be the NX-01 versus Galactica.

Re: Starship Enterprise vs. Battlestar Galactica

Depends whos writing the story and which outcome suits the plot.

Galactica would win the first episode dispite having no defence against FTL attack/transporters/photon torpedos/a crew who can do anything with a deflector dish.
But in the second episode Enterprise would win due to a reset button plot.
But in the third episode it would be nulled as another timelines enterprise would prevent both ships meeting in a time travel plot but sacrificing themselves in the process.

Re: Starship Enterprise vs. Battlestar Galactica

NX-01 vs. BSG 75 would be an interesting fight... But any Enterprise beyond that would tear apart the Galactica.

Aren't Star Destroyers on an entirely different scale to anything else we see in those shows? like REALLY big?

If you open it in Internet Explorer, you can move the images around to match up different ships. Check out the different size charts (the next size up has a Super Star Destroyer), because they have different ships in each one. It even has Halo and the second Death Star on there on the larger charts.

I added the Daedalus Class at 225 Meters (the Stargate wiki says it's between 200-225 meters) which would make it the same length as the NX-01.

This is also a good one:



There are a few more comparison charts on the same site:

Re: Starship Enterprise vs. Battlestar Galactica

No contest... Enterprise is equipped with ray guns and energy shields, Galactica isn't. The Galactica from the old series might do a bit better, since it had laser cannons.

Re: Starship Enterprise vs. Battlestar Galactica

The chart seems off - first, it's the 1978 Galactica, and that could be construed to be several different sizes from that show. That one appears to put it about 600 meters, which I don't believe as correct. The best treatise I've seen on estimating the size put it around half again that size: http://ravensbranch.allen.com/galacticasize.html

The current BSG seems larger yet, with the battlestar wiki putting it at 1400 meters, though I don't believe that's canon.

I'd concur that a Constitution class ship would win in most imaginable scenarios, especially after the movie refit. For one thing it's faster in sublight and could control the range, where it's weapons and sensors greatly outrange that of the Galactica's.

About the only chance the Galactica would have is if it jumped in right on top of the Enterprise to nullify these advantages and could fire off a salvo of nukes. A dozen nukes with main battery fire might drop the shields, which would then allow the Vipers to come in and shoot up the relatively vulnerable ship.

Of course, the Enteprise could warp out rather quickly and reestablish the situation.

The only scenario I can give a chance to the Galactica is if it was on the offense and the Enterprise had to defend a fixed point in space, like a planet.

That being said, there's a lot the Galactica can do that the Enterprise can't - such as project power with its Vipers and Raptors in several places and transport personal and cargo in far vaster numbers. They'd have an advantage in one regard in that they are military men, not explorers, and would act as such in a conflict.

That being said, the Federation in the 23rd century tech is just too far ahead of the Colonies to make this an interesting fight.

Anytime any ship in the Trek universe so much as goes through a nebula, consoles explode, sparks are flying everywhere, people are flying 10 feet in the air, phasers are down to 10 percent and the ship is fucked for days and weeks.

The Galactica would win.


Other than this being pointless geek bait, that comment was worth reading this thread.

^Well, I think he has a point. Trek tech may be shinier, but it's crazy fragile. The idea that the Galactica may simply be able to out-tough the Enterprise is worth consideirng.

How would you be able to "out tough" a ship which can beam your command crew directly into space? or just randomly teleport bits of vital circuits into space?
