Enterprise vs.Glactica...Who Wins?

On another board a couple of years ago, this was an argument which raged in favor for the Galactica.just so you know whose board it was on. Soverign Class vs Galactica. Now..it's our turn!!!!

That is tough. I believe it comes down to strategy used and how the conflict starts. Star Fleet vessels are ill equipped to deal with ballistic weaponry so shields would be useless. Likewise a phaser strike and a couple of photon torpedoes could cause major damage to the Galactica. I would bet on the Soverign class though. Through a combination of mobility and range they should last it out against any fighter sent they way. Throw in some creative transporter usage (lets say a large bomb beamed right inside the galactica) and they have a win.

Hmm. Neither. There would be no reason for Galactica and a Federation ship to "Duke it out".

UFP ship would keep range,IE back away and trying to establish communications.

Cylons however would fire without hesitation.

If a confrontation between a Federation vessel and a Colonial vessel it would be Pegasus. She is newer than Galactica, bigger,and a bit more advanced. She could stand bow to bow with any of her class. If the UFP ship had oblative Hull armour,she can take a few hits from Pegasus' rail guns,she could not handle the ballistic nuclear warheads.

You have to give to boththe Galactica and Pegasus...how many times did they take hits, unshielded, and keep right on shooting? A UFP vessel couldn't do that for long, it at all...Short and spetacular, you think?

Oh yes. The colonial craft were built to take a beating. How many ships of ours can do that? Maybe Defiant and others of that class. They have tough oblative armoured hulls designed to take a beating without shields.

They are two very different design philosophies. Without shields the Galactica is designed to take big hits and keep shooting. The Galactica isn't pretty but is tough. UFOP ships are perhaps designed with some aesthetics in mind. Considering that energy weapons are the primary threat we consider the shields sufficient protection. Oh and don't forget the Akira class, thats one tough ship.

Amoral class is tough. Since many UFOP vessels are different enough from one another, a general "x can beat y" analysts won't apply. We'll need to pick a specific ship. Possibly the best UFOP has that is adaptable to handle ballistic missiles, rail guns and nuclear warheads.

Galactica at the time of the first episode was in the process of being decommissioned, most weaponry gone,one launch pod was a gift,shop and a skeleton crew. Probably under supplied hence a quick FTL micro-jump to Ragnor station just out system.

Galactica wasn't at her,but she had an experienced commander and a crew willing to trust him.

Colonial Vipers would be a head ache,we'd need fighter craft. Which we do have. They would distract and disable the Vipers. Photon,or quantum torpedoes might have to be used,skipping phasers. A torpedo will have kinetic punch and can be programed to detonate on contact with a Hull.

Too bad someone can't do a computer simulationbetween a Soverign Class starship and a Mercury Class battlestar..most likely, the two would never meet in combat...the Soverign Class would be facing a Base Ship. Not good for the UFP...but interesting...
