But, the Valdore isn't a fast cruiser, and it most certainly isn't maneuverable, so get a fighter up the cruiser's rear, and even a Peregrine-class fighter could destroy a Norexan-class, due to the fact that the Norexan has NO REAR CANNONS!!!

Edit - Let me rephrase that, since we're talking Romuln/Klingon:

",and even a D-12-class Bird-of-Prey could destroy a Norexan-class warbird, due to the fact the the Norexan is less than maneuverable, and has NO REAR CANNONS!!!"

It seemed rather agile for its size :uhm:.

Look at the Norexan and the Sovereign. They are comparable in size, but the Sovereign is a lot more maneuverable.

The Sovereign isn't quite so wide though. Besides, that's not the point. Compared to the D'Deridex, I meant.

OOOOOoooohhh . . . . O.K. I'll give you that. The Norexan is much more maneuverable than the D'deridex, but the width of the vessel provides a rather large taget, so you almost can't miss it. And I have no basis for this next one what so ever, but I think the D'deridex had better shields . . . .

With a super advanced computer it should be impossible to miss anyway.

Not entirely. With both the Romulans and the Klingons switching to the more powerful pulse disruption cannons, the targeting mechanism is more difficult to lock on to a target. You will notice that the standard phasers and the few disruptor beams, have amazing targeting abilities, but, the pulse weapons are more powerful, and power efficient with the reduction in lost energy, but they loose a significant amount of accuracy in the process. Even the Federation, is starting to make more vessels with this type of technology, which, quite frankly, makes battles more interesting, since you can dodge something once in a while . . . .

before you call the valdore crap. remeber in the battle, shinzon wanted them eliminated, but he just wanted the enterprise disabled.

Well, yes. But, the Valdore fight scene made it quite clear that the Valdore had no rear weapons, did carry many if any torpedoes, the wing structure has structural instabilities, and it is not quite maneuverable, or fast. Shinzon's first torpedo hit on the Valdore, penetrated its shielding immediately, and hit the hull! I still say it's crap . . . . .

'Dreadnought[DK']The Romulans are more civilised. The Klingons are barbarians......;)

but define barbarians.....cause the original context of the term meant 'not greek'...and barbarian can mean so many things.............this is what I get for studying a course on semantics and philosophy.
