    "Near" = low orbit.

    Orbital Difence Grids like those protecting the Cardasia are placed in an orbit approximately that of the moon, with a long range energy weapon increasing the field of fire.

    The Genesis torpedo, while more practical than a DeathStar, would not give ST the edge.

    Um... no. Watch Khan. Not even close to low orbit.

    All of which will be inexorably swpt away by the Genesis Wave.

    In terms of busting planets? Sure it would.

    For planet killing are we counting the Sun Crusher from SW?

    Destroying planets isn't a war the federation can win. The federation has a few hundred, or a few thousand member systems at most. The empire has a million.

    If we are, we also have to count the world devastators, the galaxy gun, the other two death stars, centerpoint station, the orbital nightcloak, the mass shadow generator, the star forge, eclipse-class and sovereign-class SSDs, the Eye of Palpatine, base delta zero, etc.

    If you go into the expanded universe, star wars had a TON of planet busters.

    Re: Federation v Empire

    Dear Lord, I'm starting to feel like the resident Star Wars nerd around here. Suffice it to say, the Empire vastly outstrips the Federation in terms of weapons technology and manpower, for reasons that I intricately detailed in the other thread, and that's comparing canon to canon. The Federation should crawl back through their sub-space anomalies if they know what's good for them.

    You arent familiar with the Genesis Torpedo.

    Then there is EVERY Federation ship that is FAR superior in EVERY way to the Empire ships. Then there are the war tactics.... Federation are FAR more professional and efficiant and effective. I respect what you 1st thought but I just dont agree.
