can u imagine how nasty klingon farts smell?
I didn't make it!
oh yes, the result of kirk having a sovvy would've been more or less the same. the bop would've kept hitting the sov till spock and bones fixed up a tracking torpedo. the sov would stand up to the beating a bit better tho, stronger shields and partial ablative armour and all that. however, had spock been Data, the solution would've come quicker, and been much different, the sov would emit tachyons and decloak the bop instead of using a tracking torp.
about the son'na; two ships against one, even smaller less sophisticated ships give the advantage to the greater number of ships. even in bridge commander it's a pain in the arse to take on 6 galors and 3 or 4 keldons with a sov. but the son'na weren't the only ones trying to harvest the metaphasic energy, afterall, they wouldn't have been doing it at all had it not been for starfleet. (and if you read the DS9 section 31 book 'abyss' you'd be intrigued that section 31 may have had a hand in that entire affair! of course it's not canon, but cool none the less)
What happens in Bridge Commander isn't very realistic. Games tend to be balanced to make them easier..which sucks..bigtime. I'm a freak for realism..It seems that one thing Bridge Commander left out was the ability to track and target more then one enemy unit at a time. 6 Galors, 3-4 Keldons vs a Sovereign is a little more then 2 Son'A warships. As for Starfleet harvesting the particals, they were behind it, yes, but for political reasons they couldn't do it, thus went through a third party to have it done. I wouldn't doubt for a moment that the collector had quite a bit of Starfleet technology behind it. It's exactly the same as the CIA giving the Afghanis Stinger missiles during Russia's war with them..The US couldn't step in for political reasons, so they give 'assistance' with the same results..they get what they want, the third party gets what they want, everyone's happy, right?
Politics is a touchy issue especially now-a-days when you don't know who's listening, so I prefer not to comment on it...
Where did you guys find the info that Starfleet was behind it? I'm curious...
The Starfleet admiral, of course. In ST: IX, there as an Admiral behind it all..who was of course, your average, bumbling old Starfleet Admiral who was 'Looking out for the good of the Federation', but was really just trying to fill his own pockets, most likely. But a lot of people in the Federation stood to gain from the collection of those particals, especially those in the Medical comunity..Of course the Federation couldn't just roll a fleet into the system and order people to leave their home..that wouldn't be very Federation-like..so they had to do it through a third party...a 'Phantom Corporation', if you will.
if during the cival war the conderates had m1 tanks what would of happened this is a stupid thing .everything is relative.
Don't say anything at all..:uhm:
I'd pay money to see a Sov era Sovereign against a bunch of ST6 era Klingon BOP's.
A bunch? The Sovereign would be toast. Remember..shields are weak agaisnt attacts from multiple vectors..Thus the whole point of the MVAM of the Prometheus. We see this in Voyager: Ship in a Bottle when the Prometheus attacks a Nebula-class vessel, and disables it withen 4 phaser blasts..That's a Nebula-class ship..a ship that SHOULD have had more efficient shielding then a Galaxy-class vessel. Something to think about. :D
Yeah, but the difference between deflector shield eras would make a huge difference as it was noted by Tasha Yar in "Yesterday's Enterprise"
