    Howard Stern was pondering this yesterday and it sparked a conversation. Who do you think would win this geek-fest?

    My moneys on Galatica.

    The Galactica took a direct hit from a nuclear bomb! That's pretty tough.

    A fleet of Star Destroyers, though, could give them some trouble. Not the locals mind you, I'm talking about the big Corellian kind.

    The technology in the Star Trek universe is far more advanced than we have seen in the Battlestar Galatica universe.

    Trek has Shields, Phasers, Photon Torpedoes, Tractor Beans, Transporters, Anti Matter, Communications that work reliably over great distance, not sound like a broken up WWII radio.

    In the Galatica universe they need slaves using 18th century technology to make their fuel and still drive around in cars using internal combustion engines.

    You could have stopped right there. Does Galactica have anything that could penetrate a shield? I don't think so.

    Exactly, one of the Enterprise's photon torpedoes would destroy Galactica.

    Agreed. The question is barely worth expending thought on. Howard Stern is such an idiot sometimes. :D

    Enterprise NX-01. Galactica because Archer is incompetent. Adam could probably stare him into submission.

    Agreed... And this is from a longtime Howard fan. It's funny that the ultimate man's man is such a girl when it comes to basic guy stuff like sports, music and sci-fi.

    And apologies, as that's an insult to girls everywhere. ;)

    Agreed-what other man do you know can talk about Dancing With The Stars for hours?

    Enterprise 1701-B. Galactica because Capt. Harriman is still waiting for Tuesday to arrive.

    Galactica could take a few shots and Enterprise would lose main power before Picard would order a single, short, phaser shot to be fired. :D

    Also, Data would theorize that modifying the main deflector to emit a <technobabble> pulse would disable the Galactica.

    A simple transport to the bridge of BSG with a few redshirts and phasers on stun and the takeover would be complete.

    Or if the battlestar had to actually be destroyed, a few explosives transported inside the ship would do the trick.

    Yeah, isn't it great how all the problems in Star Trek can be solved with Chroniton, Vertiron, Tachyon, and Polaron beams/pulses? ;)

    Enterprise no question. They could beam aboard at will.
