 #1 - Bad question - Posted by: the_stag (Member) on 12-17-2008 at 14:32

A star destroyer couldn't blow up earth. The death star could blow up earth. Remember the words of Han Solo: "The entire starfleet couldn't destroy the planet. It would take a thousand ships with more firepower than I've-"

Blame America.

I guess I forgot to mention this was a parallel universe. :p

 #4 - Posted by: gotoprime (Member) on 12-17-2008 at 18:33

I would join the empire.

TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -CanadianBorg P.S. Resistance is futile, eh?

be glad earth is about to go and all who inhabit it

 #7 - Posted by: GeneralFF (Member) on 12-17-2008 at 20:38

LOL a star destroyer would blow up Earth. Takes more than that (Death Star).

 #8 - Posted by: Vaders_legion (Member) on 12-17-2008 at 21:30

I'd try to find where all the filefront moderators live and loot their gaming rig, over their dead bodies =D

 #9 - Posted by: vadereclipse (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 01:13

well, nothing beyond nukes would damage it.

 #10 - Posted by: vadereclipse (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 02:54

but yeah. rape, pillage, burn. with consent, or course.}>

 #11 - Posted by: Keksz (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 04:59

Nothing but nukes would damage it? Err..no ^^ Bullets go through shields and some battleship canons would do some damage :rock: Anyways the idea is pretty cool if 2century mankind tries to fight against the empire. Some Independence Day-Like F-18 fighters against some TIEs. ...damn thats cool ^^

 #12 - Posted by: LinuxGamerz (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 06:42

Blame America? what is this? a European site?

 #13 - Posted by: paulskywalker2000 (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 07:15

our weapons couldn't dent a Star Destroyer not because they're weak but because that thing is TOO BIG!!!:eek: and if one DID collide with Earth, it wouldn't destroy the planet, but it would do crazy a$$ damage to wherever it crashed (probably Africa, since everything bad happens there:rolleyes: ) me? I'd blame America, since what else can you do? Lol:D

 #14 - Posted by: vadereclipse (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 09:11

shame that there are no active battleships...

 #15 - The Dr Who Solution - Posted by: TiberiousKirk (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 09:13

I would call Torchwood and have them fire their superlaser like they did in season two's Chrismas Special.

 #16 - I would... - Posted by: vivaEspain (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 10:10

I would: -1. Throw things at the sky. -2. Post bad comments. -3. Try to fight back. -4. Stop dreaming and wake up... -vivaEspaña :beer:

 #17 - Posted by: MightyHaegr (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 11:52

An Imperial class SD is just 1,6 Kilometers big. Nukes take them down easily. The Rebels smuggled nukes aboard SDs at least once. Earth has more than enough nukes to do more damage to ourselves than the Destroyer. Nukes were banned even in the Empire. It was only used against the Yuuzhan Vong I think. And the Mandalorians used them too against the Republic during KOTOR era. But I'm sure we would all join the Empire. Why fight them when they can give us cool TIE Fighters :D ?

 #18 - Posted by: Shrub91 (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 12:23

25,000 nuclear missiles. BTW, the largest bomb the Soviet Union or the U.S. was able to make at the height of the Cold War was 200 kilotons. 200 times Hiroshima, now we are able to make even bigger now that we have more-advanced tech and bigger plutonium stockpiles. Yeah, Palpatine best move his butt outta our airspace.

 #19 - Posted by: Shrub91 (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 12:25

Oh and there's no real limit for nuclear bomb yields, except how much plutonium ya got. So US & Soviet stockpiles mashed together + a cobalt casing to make a superbomb? Ouch is all I gotta say.

 #20 - Posted by: Star_Wofl (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 12:28

I would blame Bush and I would leave for China.

 #21 - Posted by: 1upD (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 14:03

Though Star Destroyers can bombard a planet to the point of being uninhabitable, only Death Stars or more powerful weapons can completely destroy planets. So this is a trick question.

 #22 - Posted by: OSL_Bane (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 14:10

We'd kick its a$$ for sure! Tag team Russian, and American attack, and when its all over, we'll go back to hating each other! LoL!

 #23 - Posted by: Xenophon38 (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 15:55

Stick out my thumb and hitch a ride.

 #24 - I know what I would do...... - Posted by: Chobram (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 16:33

I would raid army bases around the world, steal military technology, make a super jet, and nuke it! I even deigned the super jet (it has an extra seat for anyone who sticks up their thumb). After that, I make a warp drive capable of Warp Factor 25 - and blast into the Star Wars Galaxy, taking control and making my own Intergalactic Empire. Mwhahahaha!!!!!!!

 #25 - Posted by: CommanderJB (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 19:03

'Course, if you send nukes at it, four things will happen: 1. The SD will shoot the inbound nukes with its point-defence guns. 2. Any nukes that survive will bounce off it's shields like ping-pong balls (Clone Wars-era ion cannons delivered as much heat per shot as a 1 GIGATON bomb. I think they know how to get rid of a simple 200kt thermonuclear device of the sort fitted on modern missiles.) 3. The electromagnetic pulse from any nukes that detonate will fry most electrical systems on that hemisphere of the Earth while simply being dispersed by the SD's shielding, magnetic fields and strengthened military-grade circuits 4. The SD will instantly conduct Base Delta Zero on the areas from whence the missiles came. So all that's really left to do is have fun!

 #26 - Posted by: IG_11 (Member) on 12-18-2008 at 19:21

Flee Undeground!

 #27 - Posted by: Conor25 (Member) on 12-19-2008 at 02:02

1) find a way to lure it into the lower atmosphere 2) get every single fighter jet in that area 3) salvage every single WWII battleship and prep them for battle (like in MGS4) 4) Get the warships underneath it to avoid too much fire 5) GIVE THE TITANIC A FRIEND TO PLAY WITH!!!!!!!!!!!!! otherwise we get Godzilla to come and destroy it (he was able to destroy a large meteor so what chance has the SD got?) thats my way of saying fight back with any needs necessary!

 #28 - Posted by: AdmiralSnackbar (Member) on 12-19-2008 at 06:30

maybe we could reason with them? lol yeah right! i would use the force to bring it down into the ocean!

 #29 - Posted by: Scorpinox (Staff) on 12-19-2008 at 14:56

I'd wait for them to get low enough then stick a giant post-it note on the back saying "Shoot Me", and if that doesn't work, blame America...

 #30 - just nuke the bad things in life - Posted by: Mr_mystery (Member) on 12-19-2008 at 18:13


 #31 - Lol - Posted by: GrdAdmSenza (Member) on 12-19-2008 at 20:13

Star destroyer might not be able to completely destroy the planet people, but it could bomb us all into hell, as for me, id probably launch nukes at it.

 #32 - what i wold do... - Posted by: DCTR4 (Member) on 12-19-2008 at 21:02

i would do all the choices

 #33 - Posted by: Crossfire460 (Member) on 12-20-2008 at 09:00

Blame America... Damn you Americans and your ideas to talk with an alien race! See what you did now!

 #34 - Posted by: TheDarkLordOfTheSith (Member) on 12-21-2008 at 11:48

i would join the empire, they are the strongest force in the universe (other then the sith) :rock:

 #35 - Posted by: Jack2066 (Member) on 12-21-2008 at 15:04

Racist son of a bitches.

 #36 - Posted by: IrationalFear (Member) on 12-21-2008 at 17:10

Here are a few more options that I thought of: 1 How to leave the Earth: "1. Phone NASA. Their phone number is (713) 483-3111. Explain that it's very important that you get away as soon as possible. 2.If they do not cooperate, phone any friend you may have in the White House--(202) 456-1414--to have a word on your behalf with the guys at NASA. 3. If you don't have any friends in the White House, phone the Kremlin( ask overseas operator for 0107-095-295-9051) They don't have any friends there either(atleast, none to speak of), but they do seem to have a little influence, so you may as well try. 4. If that also fails, phone the Pope for guidance. His telephone number is 011-39-6-6982, and I gather his switchboard is infallible. 5. If all these attemps fail, flag down a passing flying saucer and explain that it's vitally important you get away before your phone bill arrives." ~Douglas Adams #2 Send up a rocket with1,000,000 poisoned pecan pies as a "surrender" gift. #3 Get everyone from Scooby Doo into a chase scene. (remember, when they are being chased, they can defy the laws of physics.) #4 Ask Elvis to come back (~Men in Black). #5 Ask the Martians for help. We know you're there. #6 Last but not least, let them meet their maker, George Lucas, or be plagued by millions of dead Star Wars fans.

 #37 - Posted by: IrationalFear (Member) on 12-21-2008 at 17:15

@ #34 Then explain how they got over thrown by a bunch of rag tag rebels. @ #10 Finally someone used this smiley >> }>

 #38 - Sorry for the triple post - Posted by: IrationalFear (Member) on 12-21-2008 at 17:25

Perhaps a better question would be with the whole Imperial fleet, rather than a single ship. Sending one ship is just stupid( Death Star, first star destroyer v.s. Vong, etc) Also, other option #7 If Every person in the world yelled "IIIMMMMAAA FFFIIIIIIRRRRIIIINNN MMMMAAAH LLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR" at the same time, the Empire might get scared and leave.

 #39 - Posted by: roloc (Member) on 12-21-2008 at 19:14

If the SD sends some TIEs, we send jets. Jets win because TIEs don't have shields and are very shitty

 #40 - Posted by: IrationalFear (Member) on 12-22-2008 at 19:08

There is one detail about this pole that's missing: what kind of star destroyer is it? An Imperial, Victory, Venator, Super, or the little known Sun Crusher which is a real star destroyer?

 #41 - Posted by: _sith_ssdironfist (Staff) on 12-22-2008 at 23:41

@8 Hey man!! I thought we were friends!! :P Join the rebellion! and fight them!

 #42 - Posted by: TheBlueRabbit (Member) on 12-23-2008 at 07:31

 #43 - Posted by: _237th_SC_Com_Bly (Member) on 12-25-2008 at 04:11

 #44 - Posted by: Jedidestroyer (Member) on 12-25-2008 at 16:23

1. Throw fireballs at it 2. Throw self at it 3. Throw George Bush at it 4. Throw grandmothers awful fruitcake at it If # 4 doesn't work we are all doomed unless: With all our powers combined................ CAPTAIN PLANET!!!!!!!!!!

 #45 - Posted by: attackmike (Member) on 12-26-2008 at 06:01
