    Warning: Romulans are firing phased weapons at your ship. Cancel or Allow?

    Too funny!

    But I wonder how Vipers vs. Tie Fighters would play out...

    Both are unshielded, so any type of weaponry should do the trick. The TIE may have an advantage with its lasers being slightly faster than the railgun-esque Colonial weaponry, but that's probably negligible. I think the Viper is probably faster in straight-line speed, and can do the wicked reverse thruster move, but the TIE seems more agile.

    In short, it would probably come down to the pilot.

    I'm such a geek. :eek:

    Jean Luc Picard vs. Sol Tigh

    Well, they're both getting on in age, so instead of extreme fighting, it'll have to be a drinking contest.

    Eh, a Starfury could take either of them.
    (Maybe not in terms of pure speed, but it should be much more maneuverable in a fight)

    well to start the galactica is twice the size of the enterprise, and with the galactica is a carrier/battleship mix so not only does she have massive guns she also packs a large number of fighters, and long range ftl recon ships.

    but with the enterprise (with the research i have done) no starfleet ship is protected from emp so with a hit from a nuke would kill the on broad systems on the enterprise. further more a starfleet ship relies on networked computers to run almost every thing on it, there for if you down load a virus in to the main computer, the whole system would come crashing down.

    but lets get to the meat of the issue, combat related, the enterprise is not designed just for a single roll like all starfleet ships they are built for multi use there for the weapons are not good enough for a long term sustained fight where in the galactica is built for one reason and that is to win a fight and with the combine forces of fighters and on broad weapons the galactica would win hands down and the only way starfleet would stand a chance fighting the galactica they would need to have a rather large fleet of ships ranging from small craft up to the largest ship they could use.

    but even if they could muster a fleet that size the FTL that the galactica uses is a jump drive where in the starfleet ships uses a warp style drive that is slower and takes hours or even days to move the same amount of distance that the galactica could move in a matter of seconds..

    but the flaws with in the starfleet ships are other then what i have stated already are many. the design physics alone are flawed they should not move like they do. further more they are not armed for defense against fighter size craft, along with there sheilds can not defend against projectial weapons.

    so really with all you star trek fans i know you love your star fleet ships and you feel that all the techology they have is cool but when you get down to the brass tax i am really shocked that the federation have not lost any wars. and the truth be told the ships from star wars would be the only real issue for the galactica.

    i could point out more facts but we need to understand it

    Galactica would win if it ever came to a fight, but the Enterprise would diffuse the situation just before lines were crossed.

    Enterprise will just warp in, fire everything they got, and then warp out. The Galactica will be destroyed before Adama can give the order to attack. Enterprise can outrun the Galactica's projectile weapons using impulse engines. Or they can use phasers to destroy all in coming missiles from Galactica. Galactica is slow and couldn't dodge any photon torpedo or phaser fire.

    The Enterprise verses a Shadow Vessel would be a good fight.

    Enterprise, being able to ignore the laws of physics, wins.

    Do those generate some sort of gaseous/plasma cloud?

    The Enterprise crew are all Cylons and would sabotage the ship in a fight with Galactica.

    I don't get why they would fight at all. They'd team up against the Cylons/Borg.
