for Star Wars Vs Star Trek My Thoughts

Loved it! I'm a big fan of both universes, and I think you did a fantastic job! However, one technical note, a photon torpedo is basically an antimatter warhead on steroids. Keep in mind one gram of antimatter would result in an explosion about the same size as the Fat Man device at full power, and one PT literally has 2 barrels of antimatter. Other than that, great job!

the empire has enough ships that they could literally just ram them to death and the empire has millions of world to draw production the federation might be able to match coreli and kuat

To others in the comments mentioninf basedeltazero. First of all that is directly contradicted by other events. Secondly in star trek they have done the exact same thing E. G. In the die is cast. The typical showing of firepower may be megatons in star trem but the typical showing for star wars is certainly no where near teratons. The only thing we have seen like that are the autocannkns on the first order dreadnought which creates hundreds of miles wide shockwave. So maybe a teratons at absolute maximum. And that's the strongest weapon bar the death stars.

Actually you would have to include cloaking devices in the empires arsenal since they are mentioned in the movie TESB and as far as high speed tactics Empire ships can make micro hyper space jumps at high speed, this would allow them to get into close range of Fed ships and they also have Ion cannons which would be a quick way to bring down shields and disrupt electrical systems on the enemy ship.
As far as the large Ray shield generators go, I believe you are referring to the battle in the movie ROTJ
when the Executor's bridge deflector was destroyed by an x-wing, it must be noted that prior to this happening Admiral Akbar had ordered the entire rebel fleet to "Concentrate all firepower upon that super star destroyer" so it would stand to reason that by the time the x-wing shot at the executor's bridge defector her shields were probably already heavily weakened thus allowing the shot to penetrate and be effective. Next, as far as replication tech there is evidence for the existence of such considering the death star was built on site with materials near her location, and I have found references pointing toward the existence of replications tech as well. Also, UFP replication tech needs base material to replicate as they can't create something from , while the UFP may be able to construct a single starship at the same pace as the empire the Empire has hundreds if not thousands of shipyards in it's sphere of influence.

I'd say that it is a valid assumption. However, you neglect to point in that the batteries on an Imperial Star Destroyer are turreted, giving them a 360 field of view with and approximate 270 arc of fire, causing the center spine of the ISD to be just as dangerous and the underbelly of the ship.

While the Federation ships do benefit from transporter technology, it is stated numerous times that shielding of any type inhibits the use and function of ship to ship beaming.

Another fact of Imperial Star Destroyers is that they are functionally carrier ships. Each ISD capable of carrying two full wings (64 or so) fighter craft. Beam weapons aren't accurate enough to hit fast attack craft like a TIE fighter. If it was a stock ISD against a stock, say Sovereign class Federation star cruiser (which are known to be slow and fairly clunky in combat maneuvering), that is a negligible part of the combat.

ISD ships operate like a hwacha: fill the zone with enough firepower to vaporize anything caught in the radius. Plus, most gun batteries are independently operated, meaning that coordinating fire is a much more serious threat to a federation battleship.

The phasers have a nadion based core inside them, which is more powerful than a laser based core (I think).

I know this article is a tad bit old but i felt the need to comment. In terms of sheet, raw firepower the GE will win more often then not if we are taking mid end showings for both factions. Mid end, for the GE, is gigatons/terratons (to those not famalir, basically enough to turn a planets crust to magma) due to something called a BaseDeltaZero existing. In terms of manuveribillity i wont comment because im not good with acceleration stuffs. But from what i know Federation mid end is about megatons (firepower equal to the Coveant from Halo, basiccally). Ground wise the Empire stomps handily due to the hilarious firepower advantage and speed of Wars replusor vechiles. (the walkers are only used due to Tarkins doctrine of fear policy.) Industry wise the Empire laughs at nearly everything in the Alpha Quadrant exluding things like the Q. This is due to them being able to construct a nearly 900 Km (yes, that is not a mispell) in total secery, and had it nearly completed in the course of 6 months. The industry required to peform that feat is mind boggling. All in all im fairly certain the GE beats the Feds handily.

you hit it on the money there friend , yea It's likely Starfleet would hold it's own against the Empire as much as I like the Empire I'm going with Starfleet , always have and always will , but how would the Empire fare against either the Dominion , Breen and , Cardassian alliance wouldn't that be something to compare

Coming from a fellow geek, that was epic.

Hey guys, your moms are calling you for dinner. Better pull up your pants and leave the basement...
OP: good effort and imagination. Don't let the people with completely hypothetical "facts" get you down.

Ben, you have definitely brought up some good points. I confess, I'm more of a Star Wars guy, and you have a few anomalies. First, Hyperspace in terms of travel is far faster than that of Warp travel. While calculations are required, it should be noted that Imperial ships can travel to battle sites far quicker. Also, the Star Wars Galaxy itself is roughly 10% larger than that of the Milky Way. In addition, the Alliance only controls the Alpha and Beta Quadrant to a certain degree. Therefore, they only have about 30-40% of the territory of the Empire, and the Alliance has far less shipyards then the Empire, as well as the Empire having a massive population (more troops, pilots, etc.).
Also, while it is true Federation capital ships are faster, their armament is much weaker. ISDs (Star Destroyers) are superiorly armed and equipped with fighters. And even with point defense, smaller Imperial ships can easily go toe-to-toe with the Alliance. And shield frequency doesn't matter! Turbolaser fire is completely unaffected! Also, Star Wars shields can block beaming attempts (as they do in Trek). Imperial ground forces have a huge advantage because they have access to cloning, and have actual tactics. And the majority of the Star Trek species would stick out like a sore thumb, with some exception to humans. Your thoughts are based greatly on your innate knowledge of Trek, and I hope my knowledge of Wars helps you to make a less biased/informed decision.
Respectfully, Deltoid

I strongly disagree.

First, you cannot just dismiss out of hand the question of ground forces. The Galactic Empire is so superior in this area as to make the comparison laughable.

Secondly, there is the matter of quantity. The Empire encompasses millions of worlds. Tens of thousands of major capital ships. The Alpha Quadrant is quite outnumbered.

Finally, Star Trek has no equivalent to one-man fighters. Every argument you make for the superiority of maneuverability applies just as well to fighters as it does to capital ships. If the star destroyers cannot adequately target and hit the Federation vessels, neither should they hit fighters.

You also completely ignore the sheer number of weapons on a star destroyer. They are easily comparable to Borg cubes. Cubes are slightly larger and have a greater crew complement. Star destroyers have more turbolaser batteries and TIE-fighters to make up the difference. Think of how Borg cubes tear Alpha Quadrant vessels to shreds and you have a fairly accurate look at what star destroyers would do.

Federation primary shield is not the same as the empires shields . The empire has a two shield system . Particle shields and ray shields , Particles protect against photon torpedoes and missiles , Ray shields speak for themselves .Federation primary shield has the capability of both empire shields .Therefore twice as powerful as their shields and more efficient . Use less power . Two shield systems may work against the rebels ,But against federation vessels . they are extremely vulnerable. One transphasic torpedoes fired at warp velocity 3,500,000 miles away would vaporize a star destroyer in a millisecond . Phasers would take them down 300,000 kilometers away .Empire vessels weapons range 5,000 kilometers . That a receipt for destruction , Federation on the other hand in normal space at one quarter impulse power is faster then empire star fighters . At 46.500 miles per second the empires sublight weapons can't hit a federation vessel . It's out of range in less then a millisecond . thy don't need to go warp speed to defeat empire vessel . It's like a world war 2 plane going up against a f 18 fighter .

Your opinion is very interesting, but I have a few things to point out. Blasters(troop weapons) Have several settings from stun to high enough to kill an elephant and everywhere in-between. Star Wars has several weapons beyond the scope you have included, such as concussion missiles, several turrets and anti aircraft(point-defense) weapons, and much more. wiki/Category:Starship_weapons This is a good link for their weapons.
As you said, Star Wars shields are specifically designed for combat, implying that they are much stronger. For instance, in the movies Star Trek ships take large amounts of damage, yet you hear a tech officer yell out, "Engines at 10 percent!" or something similar. Star Wars ships are knocked around, but do not take any physical damage until their shields are completely wiped out.
Yes, a ship can go to Warp faster than hyperspace, but hyperspace is faster than warp, giving Star Wars an advantage in speed.
Bacta is a very good medical source, but it is not the only medical assistance found in Star Wars.
The Imperial Intelligence is very good at getting information, willing to do whatever is necessary to get what they need.
The Empire doesn't have anything in the way of transporters, but Star Trek would still be unable to board their ships with their shields up.
Regarding food, if a Star Destroyer was cornered, its superior armor alone would give it enough time to bully its way through an armada into a clear space to engage hyperspace, allowing an escape. Wider firing arcs is a completely subjective view, as that argument could be made for either side of the conflict.
While most of the Star Destroyers have their weapons on the port and starboard sides of the ship, their weapons are turrets which easily allow for fore protection, though I don't specifically know of their aft protection.
Shield generators are vulnerable, but I have seen nothing in the way of Star Trek fighters, which are the only things small enough to find a gap in a Star Destroyer's shields to attack the shield generators, therefore, those are still safe.
Star Trek ships may strafe, but there are several smaller ships (Victory Class, for instance) that would be able to protect their larger counterparts from strafe attacks.
You said that the Federation would DEVELOP a point defense mode to combat large fighter attacks. I find this a moot point, because if the Federation has to develop a defense system, the fighter attacks would have done their damage by the time they can have it tested and online.
Again, you said that you would IMAGINE that Starfleet has a tank, but there is no evidence to support this while Star Wars(the Empire specifically) has many tanks like the AT-AT, AT-ST, Turbo tank, and several other types.
I have not seen any air support utilized by Starfleet that would have the armor and weapons capabilities to combat an AT-AT, and an Imperial Fleet could keep Starfleet ships out of orbit long enough for their tanks to do their work.
Phaser rifles may be able to punch through Stormtrooper armor, but with the Stormtooper's advance military training (despite the movies' way of portraying them, Stormtroopers were an elite force and a very frightening army) they could easily obliterate a force of less-well trained, less-well armed and less-well armored Starfleet security officers.
Yes, Imperial Analysts could very well underestimate the Federation from its size but after one battle when they see the Federation's abilities, they would be able to return with better tactics and a better understanding of the enemy.
If Klingons and Romulans are Starfleet's allies (I can find no evidence indicating that the Romulans would ally themselves with Starfleet) it is highly unlikely that the Rebellion would be willing to join in their very war-like and hate-filled battle.
To add a point of my own, the Empire has many Super Star Destroyers ( wiki/Super_Star_Destroyer? ) and a Death Star, which you did not take into account at all. These ships would build a fleet big enough to destroy any Federation fleet.
I personally believe that the Empire has just as much capability, if not far more, to defeat the Federation that the Federation has of defeating the Empire.
My view is very biased towards Star Wars, but this is how I see things.

Well, Star Wars might have the advantage if it's infantry vs infantry because there are dark Jedi that serves the empire too.
