Welp, then Scott, you're own Star Wars books (young jedi knights and shadow academy) are wrong.
You're OWN CANNON is wrong according to you. You are NOT a source of higher cannon. So FUCK YOU.

You can expect it as much as you want. You are not deserving of one as, heh, I'm not wrong.
What they FELT was not the vong or the Voxxyn themselves but the actual void in the force where they were.
Yeah, fess up bitch.

Oh, and by the way- i have the book right here in front of me. I do have to say Mara and Luke have more than their fair share of trouble don't they.

I'll fix that for you scott and translate it from your delusional statements to what everyone else can understand.
Scott: I got proven wrong. WAAAH!
06-21-07, 04:16 AM #5331
Can't we lay it to rest? Even Wars supporters agree- scott is, at best, a very impolite sonuvabitch that can't back his facts!

Nah, I've grown weary of the books to be honest. They make up so much extra crap that it isn't even star wars any more.

2. The Borg are immune to telepathy (Counselor Troi could not detect their minds).
3. The Force will not work when the wielder is held in a field containment device (see Ep 1). The Borg ship will simply encase Vader in a forcefield.
4. Vader is dead. The Borg Queen can be reconstructed.
5. It is a matter of canon that Borg drones number in the trillions.
6. It is a matter of canon that Borg shield modulations can withstand enormous pounding (think millions of terajoules).

First of Sith are extremely talented at hiding that evil when needed. Witness Sidious.
Second the crew trusts Picard, sometimes his unorthodox or plain questionable orders have saved their lives when going another route would have killed them
third Picard could just order the computer to drop shields.
I don't care if you excuse my french, but how fucking stupid are you. First of all I am not the one who wrote the script and failed to realize Isoton was a real measurement. Second getting a fleet to abandon a system is just as effective destroying ship, you just herd them around until you have them pinned. Or did you think the only way to win is smash the enemy?
Isotone by the way is:
One of two or more atoms whose nuclei have the same number of neutrons but different numbers of protons
Were they firing Photon Torpedos? No The were using Plasma Torpedoes, specially prepared ionic torpedoes, and tri-colbalt devices. But that is the Romulans and Cardassians for you/
Given enough time they could level a planet, hell same can be said of aircraft carriers today.
Easy, the weapon in question was designed for area of effect sort of a reverse C4 which is more powerful that TNT but makes a smaller blast radius.
A: Photon cuased Long range shuttles warp core to breach.
B: Enough of any explosive can do that, doesn't mean it is used as everyday weapon.
Interesting quote there he was afraid he might vaporize an atmosphere. Just for the EXTREMELY bad science of that quote, i would have to say Mr. Scott was either drunk or having a blonde moment.
What they couldn't have had well designed powerpacks from their hand weapons and still have crappy ship weapons. Look the hand phaser of TOS is great, but in TNG they gimped it, an overloaded phaser is no more threat than a grenade.
Was level 16 enough to do that or was Riker bluffing? Since we never saw it done it is no different than the corbomite maneuver.
As for the Antimatter bomb well they were mixing together far more than they put inot a Photont torpedo
First of all No photon torpedoes where used in the assault on the supposed Founder homeworld. Specially prepared Plasma and Ionic torpedoes were used and undoubtedly tri-colbalt devices. I can say this with 100% certainity as neither Romulans or Cardassiaos use Photon Torpedoes
Second a Small Town can be 10 miles in radius. For a beam weapon to strike the center and vaporize the whole town is a feat that does require such a weapon.
In the end it comes down to it is repeated numerous times that the measurement is isoton which littlerall is 10^0 tons. Don't blame me, blame script writers.
Reed : "Photonic torpedoes. Their range is over fifty times greater than our conventional torpedoes. And they have a variable yield. They can knock the comm array off a shuttle pod without
scratching the hull, or they can put a three kilometer crater into an asteroid."

1) The Death Star had a firepower of over half the Imperial fleet.
2) The Eclipse Destroyer, with a cannon that had 1/3rd the firepower of the Death Star, was only able to crack the crust of a planet, thus indicating that the Superlaser must have some sort of chain reaction effect.
3) In Revenge of the Sith book, its said that a Turbolaser can vaporize a small town. Small towns on average, are fairly small.
4) Han states in Episode 4 that not even the entire Starfleet could have destroyed Alderaan.
Given that the Death Star at even 2/3rds of its power wouldn't be able to destroy the planet (though it would fuck it up), and the evidence given by these two other facts, the Empire is in fact, very low on the notch of firepower needed to take on UFP ships.

pfff. I'm not so into all this canon, non-cannon stuff.
I must admit i was earger to believe ppl when then stated what was canon and what not. I've been a little bit to naief i guess.
In my opinion the creator disides whether something is canon. Not the writers, director's or producers.
In SW it's easy; when Lucas says it's canon it is.
Butt for ST i find it dificult. I'm not sure who created ST. Was it this Gene fellow?
But then again you have Voyager, DS9, among others. Who created these and is this still canon.
So @scott I'm going to assume that nowhere in the movies it is stated how powerfull Htl are
@ Kittamaru I'm sorry butt there are things that rases eyebrows. I find that there are a lot of contradictions in ST.
Before i believe ppl again if will try to locate a source that isn't created bij one of the pro and contra's. Hope to find it soon.

False, Troi is not a Telepath merely and Empathy
The force works where ever my friend. I wonder how you managed to get this idea.
