    For once I disagree with DPR. I still think the Enterprise wins. :D

    Transport a bomb on board. And boom :D

    Can you transport onto something armed with shields? I was under the impression that you couldn't.

    Plus, if Vader is on board, he can impose a Force bubble around the bomb that would absorb the blast, and then for kicks he can choke out Kirk/Picard/whomever via videoconferencing.

    Unless, of course, the Asgard get involved and prevent the transporters from working with bombs. -- :D Heck, if we are combining universes, why stop with two?

    I must be a geek--funny stuff. Love the extreme fighting matchups. Who's Picard going to go against?

    Enterprise would win in any incarnation if we were talking about it's specs as they are in paper/technobabble. If we're talking about how they appear on screen it'd be a close fight that the Galactica would probably win. For cryin out loud Enterprise's photon torpedoes use antimatter and have a yeild measured in the isotons, yet the explosion and the damage caused to planetside buildings is less than we can do with a Tomahawk. (yes, I know, variable yield. I'm talking about the "full spread, maximum yield" shots!) I saw a great example of the specs not matching the fx in an episode of Voyager a few days ago. Chakotay: "They've closed to 50,000 kilometers!" FX shot half second later shows a ship that's almost overlapping the shuttle...

    What about the Ori? The Wraith are technically about on par with the Earth (and its allies), but the Ori blow the "good guys" out of the water...or, um...space.

    No one has mentioned the crews. The BSG crew is rather dysfunctional compared with the teutonic efficiency of the Starfleet folks. Just somethin' else to throw out there. I still think it's a non-starter, as any class Enterprise could take the BSG.

    There was an episode of STTNG I believe where they encountered a primitive (to the federation) race that was armed with nuclear bombs.

    One of the crewmen was sitting there in amazement when they saw the armaments of the other ship. I'll paraphrase here.

    "they can't even penetrate our navigational shields"

    [edit] my mistake, after a search I found that the quote was about lasers, not nukes. And I remember it once coming up in a discussion of Star Trek vs Star Wars. But still, I think their shields could take a nuke.

    I always find it funny all the talk about the vaunted Enterprise shields. Wasn't it about every other episode the shields were down? ;)

    They were still more reliable than the holodecks...

    The way Kirk bedded anything with a single X chromosome, he probably picked up a case of midichlorians along the way!

    I think it would take somebody like the Q to defeat the Ori (especially if they were actually fighting themselves, and not just using their worshippers as proxies as they do in the show).

    I certainly hope not, or else the Earth is in deep trouble...

    Don't get me wrong, I'm confident that SG-1 will defeat them; but probably only by using Ascended technology themselves (Merlin's amulet).

    P.S. Or, of course, the "good" Ascended could finally step in. Or Daniel could give them a philosophical beat-down... whatever.

    This thread reads like an actual conversation between Henchmen numbers 21 and 24! Except no one has been accused of being a 'poser' yet!

    Nah, that's Geordi's role.

    If we're talking Enterprise D or E vs. TNS Galactica, I think the Enterprise would easily destroy Galactica.

    The vipers wouldn't be able to do squat, I don't think the projectile weapons could penetrate the shields and phasers could take out incoming nukes. Some well placed phaser shots and torpedoes should be enough to take out Galactica.
