Ok obviously I am getting nowhere in trying to convince you of how pathetic this all is.
You realize technical manuals and all that bullshit are meaningless drivel written by people who have the most basic understanding of how things actually work. You can spout all that crap about how many megatons are in each laser shot but it doesn’t change that an Imperial turbolaser or whatever the hell impacting a ship or planet looks identical to a Federation phaser hitting a ship or planet or whatever the hell is going on in the episode that week. The special effects are done by the same company half the time so are you really gonna say that one of them is 1000x more powerful than the other despite the fact they look exactly the same.
I enjoy Star Trek and I enjoy Star Wars and I think it would be cool to see a Romulan Warbird blow up a Star Destroyer but at least have the sense to realize that it is impossible to have some definitive method to find out "what would really happen”.
And you do realize that the guy who wrote the SW2ICS and the SW3ICS actually is a PhD who is qualified to make all the calcs that would provide information on SW technology performance?
Hint: Google Curtis Saxton. He's an actual PhD.
WRT the "patheticness" of this, face it Swiss, we like arguing about this stuff. You may think it's pathetic, but to us, this is fun. Don't get me wrong, there are people who take it too far and make it their life, but I'm not one of those people. I even enjoy Star Trek when I have the chance to watch it.
But the facts remain that in SW, average military vessels have the ability to casually slag planetary surfaces, and cross the galaxy in, at most, days, while in ST ships cross distances in a matter of weeks or months, and are incapable of rendering noticeable swaths of planetary surfaces into a mass of molten rock.
It has to do with the underlying themes of the settings; ST isn't meant to be a setting where ships throw planet-killing firepower around casually. SW is, albeit indirectly.
You don't like it, take it up with George Lucas and Paramount. I'd say to take it up with Rodenberry, but he's dead, so you really can't.
also a federation shuttlecraft could beam a torpedo to the center of the death star from out of weapons range so suck it.
1. Federation transporters have a range limitation of 40,000 kilometers. This is canon.
2. The Venator-class star destroyer's main guns could hit a target at ten light minutes. That's 180 million kilometers. Which is four thousand five hundred times the range limitation on Fed transporters. And it's quite logical that fire control and weapons targeting software and hardware would have progressed at least somewhat in the several decades between the construction of the Death Star and the previous deployment of the Venator-class.
3. Transporters are known to be unable to transport through dense materials. Which are known to be present in all types of SW ship armor. Ergo, this idea does not goddamn work.
This only proves that you don't know shit about either series' canon.
