Dude, my story was just strung WAAAAY out because even the tiny Defiant would obliterate the bulky, massive Star Destroyer in 2 photon torpedo shots - returned fire would not affect the shields because they're based on something confirmed to be very old and weak in several different incarnations of Trek (my favorite is the TNG ep where the whole crew gets selective amnesia by an alien who convinces the crew to fight the alien's enemy forces, but Picard realizes that the laser-based weaponry poses no threat at all to the Enterprise, so it wouldn't make sense that this massive ship would be in that war).Originally posted by stillakid
Nice story! However, wimpy "starfleet" buses are no match for craft designed primarily to destroy. A full on volley from the Star Destroyer and a mass attack from the armada of TIE's would finish the battle off before the Galactic Associated Press had time to realize anything was going on.
But then again, I'm making this up as I go...
Lobito, the "important" Enterprise sizes are:
Enterprise A - (note: there's a LOT of disagreement on this in fan circles and even official ones)
Height: 71 meters
Width: 141 meters
Length: 305 meters
Ent D -
Height: 137 meters
Width: 467 meters
Length: 642 meters
Ent E -
Height: 88 meters
Width: 250 meters
Length: 685 meters
Now the Millennium Falcon is also not exactly a "locked down" official size (in part thanks to the exterior being much smaller than the inside), so there's plenty to argue about there, but here's the general idea:
Height: approx. 6 meters
Width: approx. 18 meters
Length: 27 meters
I'm working on a set of images to show you the size differences, I'll add it when I'm done.
Bel-Cam, I don't actually READ much of the EU, so I would say "um... Stackpole, 'cause I've seen his name on stuff more often".
BTW, from your smileys, I think you might talk to your doctor about bipolar disorder.
MJ, I won't even dignify that post of yours with a "harumph".
