    our big, glowy photon torp disappears for 2 seconds (according to VLC player, in my copy ripped from VHS) before the asteroid explodes
    which points to both a big asteroid and, i think, a fairly long range, considering how bright that torpedo is
    We can't seem ther Flectarn.
    But I can image the shots.

    Ah, well that paticular place is biased, and thus an unreliable source. I'm not going to waste my time disproving the claims of people who have repeatedly lied to others about Lucas Arts canon policy.
    Exactly...
    I'm about to conduct some research about the true size of the Falcon, Star Destroyer and Asteroid in CAD over the next week to see just how big the asteroid was....It should prove intresting....




    And that's exactly why the Death Star is not practicle. You have to pay a shit load of money just to get it from point A to point B, a ton of money in order to build that core powerful enough to generate that much energy, wasting energy on destroying a planet, and finally a ton of energy and resources in defending that weapon. No one in their right mind would consider that thing a great feat of technology.
    It's the defense of that stupid thing I balk at.
    I mean come on. That thing was practicaly defenseless.
    Who leaves out point defense against snub fighters. Everytime they build one they have an "EASY Button" installed or a map and Entrance to the Generator.

    How much sense does this make?



    Exactly, and for the final nail in the coffin, said cloak was the prototype, not the finished project. The point of field testing would be to hammer out the problems and get it ready for front of the lines production, assuming it worked (which it did).

    Of course, the fact that the Romulans have the technology to cloak ships about the size of the Falcon is pretty telling who stands superior to the other in such things.
    Transporters
    Cloak
    Stealth
    Transphasic Torpedos
    Quantum Torpedoes
    Ablative Armor
    Deployable Armor
    Regenerative Shields

    Trek has the weapons and defense depart down.

    The United Federation of Planets. If you forgot, the 31st century Federation has pretty much the same role as the Time Lords, except they're more competent and aren't archaic. Not to mention, that when one of their ships go boom, it takes out an entire solar system with it. Or rather, the 26th century ones did, but my point remains.

    The 31st UFP could very well challenge the Time Lords or the Daleks, and would promptly crush the Galactic Empire without so much as breaking a sweat.

    I just ran a series of computer models on the Falcon's size. It seems confirmed that the ship is indeed forty meter in length from bow to stern and so 30 meter port to star board.

    I'm have a much more difficult time deciphering the size of the asteroids. Assuming they are along the same path of the falcon...It may be too early to tell but this may mean the asteroid is along the same diameter as well. It would confirm Wong's numbers surpisingly. I was expecting his estimate from the cmparison of the falcon to the shield globe on the tower to be a gross mistake.

    It turns out the ship dimensions site which has the Falcon at 23 meters is way off. I can currently see no reason to suspect that the Falcon is any smaller or the asteroid themselves as smaller.

    Saquist, compare the falcons size to that of the ISD it attached to. That is, I think, where the 23 meter estimate comes from, considering we really don't know the size of the asteroids.

    Well yeah, they would have an easy time with SW. However, in the case of Dune the UFP would have one hell of a time. Think of the Time Lord UFP having to deal with their plans being countered already in the past. Dune has the prescience factor that negates the worries of time travel.

    Plus my supposition was that the UFP would have been already run by the Dune universe by the 31st century. Although it would appear that they controlled themselves.

    This is where Dune is unmatched: Espionage and infiltration.

    That's where wong go his 40meter estimate from.
    I figured it was wrong like most things Wong says but in relation to the ISD it's attached to it is indeed 40 meters which means those rocks were along a similar size...likely they were 34 to 36 meters across. I say that because the explosions never apear to be between the camera and the falcon but on the other side or just above the falcon and the Falcon seems to be flying a pretty straight course.

    I orginally thought the best comparison of the Falcon's size would be to measure the interior...specifily the seating beteween the pilot and copilot. Amazingly...40 meters is not quite enough. It's almost to snug in the cabin at 3.2 meters but I think that would do.

    Anywho...I was completely surprised that the Falcon was that big...40 meters... CAD was fairly accurate...but it still couldn't narrow downt he size of the rock more specifly with out a distance estimate.

    I sized a 3d wireframe of the Falcon, the rock, and the ISD and placed a frame around the scene that woulc isolate the direction the ISD was traveling and the distance from the ISD from the camera. I had to estimate the Falcon's and the asteroid's position. While the ISD's position is really, really accurate because it's partally on scree/off screen the Falcon is not it's hovering in the middle of the scene. I estimated that it was on a direct course away from the ISD directly in fron of it's prow. But other than exactly where the asteroid was...there no way to tell how big it was with out more information on the asteroid.

    I told TWScott this was impossible. That dud is such an idiot. You can't decipher true distance without the size of the asteroid...nor can you decipher the size of the asteroid with out the distances from the asteroid. We're missing one too many variables.. IT's impossible...

  12. #12692
    Having said that in order for the turbo lasers to be missing as much as they were the falcon had to be variing it's course by as much as 3 to 5 times it's width as it dodged from port to starboard.

    The Falcon is 30meters wide. That means a target area of 90 meters to 150 meters to either side (longer than the length of the Tantive IV) The asteroid's could have been anywhere within that immediate line of sight from the camera to the falcon with room for error of 150m.

    Not really - the temporal shielding of all 30th century federation ships, bases, and planets prevents past changes from affecting their future.

    from engineering perspective the above spaceship is impossible to construct and come anywhere close to operate...let alone have any real physics back it up

    what about
    the borg v/s human form replicators
    or
    the anchients AND ori v/s the jedi AND sith?!
    or
    the asgard v/s the klingons or romulans or speicies 8472?!

    or even
    the gould and wriath v/s the federation and mirror empire?!
