    Obviously the Empire. If I'm not mistaken, the Empire was a galactic civilization and the Federation just spanned a few star systems.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    I think a "few" is an understatement. 5% of our galaxy, or so.

    Fed technology, I thnk, makes the difference.

    I think the technology of the Federation is superior to that of the Empire and would be the deciding factor. Federation vessels are smaller and more manueverable than star destroyers and pack equal if not greater firepower.

    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.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    The Feds have the deciding advantage in that, from what we have seen on the screen, they can fight at FTL speeds, whereas Empire ships cannot.

    That is a GREAT idea.

    nah, the Federation is like the Old Republic from Star Wars. While the Empire is much like the Klingons. (central dictator with regional governors ring a bell)

    What a silly question. The United Federation of Planets, of course. The Empire is just a fictional name made up for a movie. Real life always trumps cartoon.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
