Right. I have spent the last two hours going through DITL.org (www.ditl.org) and have compiled a table of information, rating ships, particularly in combat. This thread will now be used as a refernce point if people ask for specific ships etc. Whilst there are some results that I do not agree with or are comleted, these seem to be pretty fathomable. An explanation first though: 1) There is no Bird of Prey or K'Vort class for the Klingons. Why? Wanna tell me how many frikkin' variations there are of them?!?!? 2) Ships with a * next to their name indicate results from ships that have either been seen only once or little information is gathered from them. 3) These statistics mean that in theory, ships can beat other ships. Obviously, we can't take into account the captain and the crew's performance otherwise this would be far longer. 4) THE INTREPID IS ALMOST BEATEN BY A STEAMRUNNER. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WOULD SHE EVER BE ABLE TO TAKE OUT ANY VARIATION OF A GALAXY CLASS!! HENCE, THERE IS NO WAY SHE COULD TRULY STAND UP TO EVEN A SINGLE BORG BEAM! NEVER! EVER!! 5) The Nebula was left out for the same reason as the Bop's, a few variations and no specifics. We can guess though that the results are probabaly a little bit lower then the basic Galaxy class.
Nice work, Joel. I, also, have to disagree with some of the stats, but this does provide a good reference starting point. Qapla
DITL is well know for its innacuracies, but still, as Kel said. its a good place to start I suppose.
If there are any other sites that people can recommend, I'll happily do the same thing. When I got into it, it didn't take too long. In fact, making the damn table took the longest time.
I think (regardless as to what that site says) the Intrepid isn't as tough as many make out anyway, also the K'vort does exist!
You stuck this?
It made sense as a reference for people to use, so I'm gonna re-sticky it :P
well i see a big error all ready! The diderex warbird is stronger then a galaxy class starship! This is said by riker, picard,.. and seen in the TNG shows! Also the intrepid class is way way to weak! And the akira class in more much more maneuverable.
I think a lot of it is inaccurate, I mean the interpid is a weak ship by standards but not as pityful as it makes out, it is a light cruiser and can easily hold its own for a while. Also the defaint was beating the lacota quite conclusively in the episode they went against each other, although neither side gained a great victroy the defiant had far fewer casulties than the lacota and both ships had able crews and captains.
Yes, we've realised there are some inconsistencies, so I'm gonna look for another site with some better data. The D'Deridex IS actually weaker. I don't know why you've heard that, but the first time you see one, they're worried because no Federation ship has been close to one in 20 years AND you later find out, the Galaxy can defeat one, but would sustain damage in the meanwhile. The Intrepid whilst being that weak may seem inaccurate, I believe to be correct. She was designed at the same time as the Norway, Steamrunner and Saber, so should fit in accordingly. In the first episode, you hear the stats and she is designated as a Light Cruiser. Voyager just got extremely extremely lucky.

- Figured it'll get more response in it's new home Joel!
mmh intrepid needs to be compared to be higher then the akira and the galaxy! WHY? Take a look in the USS Voyager thread! :D
