    maybe we should find some super geek to research all the techie crap from both sides and send it in to "Deadliest Warrior" and let them decide.
    Phasers are infinitely superior to blaster cannons.
    That's coming from a bigger Star Wars fan.

    The Empire, but I think it would be a close fight. Now the Federation were going to be fighting more Jedi I don't think it would be close at all.

    I think you'd find that most issues would be decided long before they reached the scale where Jedi involvement would have an effect.

    sorry Star, but Jedi would hardly factor in. hokey religions and ancient weapons would be no match for a photon torpedo. Besides...the Jedi didn't fight for the Empire and after Episode 3 there were basically only two left and Luke was fighting against the Empire so he would cancel out any benefit having Vader might be to the Empire.


    I think too many SW fans over estimate the effectiveness of the Jedi in large scale combat operations. one on one at close/medium range a Jedi is kick ass. but over larger distances, the powers fade considerably. look at episode 6 when the stormtroopers wiped out the Jedi temple. If the Jedi couldn't repel ground troops with hand weapons, what makes you think they could repel phaser fire from a Galaxy class cruiser?

    Re: Federation v Empire

    I'd say the Federation, but remember, some of the spying and intrigue that the Empire manages rivals if not betters that of the Obsidian Order. In a straight up battle, the Federation has the FAR better technology. But with the underhandedness and infiltration skills of the Empire, they might induce the Federation to implode from within.

    Now, a good question would also be, how would the Dominion and The Borg react?

    Agreed. The Federation would not be dealing with Jedi, but Sith.

    Don't think for a minute that the Sith would be beyond using their power to "influence" Feddie higher-ups to surrender power to them. Don't think the Federation wouldn't negotiate with them, either. That would be the REAL threat the Federation would face.

    Now, in an out-right battle, any "negotiation" with Sith OR Jedi would be with overloaded Photon Torpedoes, which would end the "talks" quick-like. Either are impressive in close combat, but once that hit 80,000 km away, they're in Overload range. That's when the pain starts.

    I have to go with the Empire on this one due to numbers and resources.

    Neither hold up well to Reflex Cannon.
