    I don't really see why the deathstar should worry about a one-man fighter. I mean, the exhaust shaft is what, like two meters wide? That's no bigger than a womp rat.

    Yes, but the federation keeps records and the project was classified at the time so it should be on the federation database if it hasn't been canceled... But this is unlikely. The suncrusher is still better but the UFP has time travel... Hmmm. They are highly outnumbered but with time travel you simply can't lose.

    It doesn't really matter whether or not they are hypothetically able to build another genesis device, since the evidence indicates that they aren't willing to use one even when they are being faced with eminent destruction. If they weren't willing to use it against the borg, why would we think they would use it against the DS, or anything else?

    They can build it but they don't... Time travel is the key.

    Republic>UFP

    Galactic Republic is far better than Federation because they travel around faster, bigger and better ships, fighters, billions of land troops (that the UFP doesnt have), and Jedi or course.

    First, welcome Majorearl12

    Second - Be careful what you say and how you throw it around here - this is something that's been debated to death (and this is, honestly, a bit of a thread necro to boot) - none the less, the final determination (in another thread herein the forums) was that the side that wins is almost totally based on how you interpret the "canon" on both sides - if you intentionally low-ball one side and high-ball the other, it's a stomp. If you take visible examples from both (ergo, the Movies for Star Wars and the Episodes for Star Trek) you come out with a very, very close match that could go either way, mostly because the Federation has the superior technology in many respects (shields, weapons, tactics) whereas the Republic (going by the latest era in the movies) has the advantage in quantity, as well as speed and manufacturing.

    Although I generally agree with this, I think it's hard to argue against the fact that, based on the TV/movie "cannon," the SW faction would have an incredible advantage in speed. SW ships can cross the galaxy relatively quickly (apparently days or weeks), while ST had an entire show based around the premise that it takes many years for a Federation ship to cross such distances. Of course, that's just looking at the Federation, rather than considering the likes of the Borg etc.

    Exactly, which is why the timeframe is also important - do recall, within the next 20 years after TNG (according to "All Good Things" I believe it was), Warp Drive had advanced to allow speeds in excess of Warp 15, and TransWarp / Slipstream drives were becoming less of an experiment and more of a realistic way to get around. Not to mention the Ent-D's kickass refit with that heavy phaser cannon XD

    The Federation doesn't need things like the death star because their ships have been able to wipe out planets for over a century.
    The federation's orbital weapons can annihilate any troops that land on their planets.
    Federation weapons can shoot down boarding craft and cut through a star destroyer's relatively undefended bridge, disabling it.
    Federation transporters, depending on the power of republic/imperial shields, could just beam key components and personnel to the federation ships.

    The galactic republic has an advantage in speed, however all the federation would have to do is disable a republic/imperial ship to get it. Better yet, they could just buy it.

    As far as size goes, the federation has over 100 member planets, compressed into a small area, while the republic's/imperial's planets are spread across half the galaxy, with much less density.
