Charles Lindsey Posted May 8, 2001 Report Share Posted May 8, 2001 Tac, I don't remember that Photon Torpedoes can travel at warp speed. They always show the torpedoes exiting the launch tube, they always show a few seconds travel time, THEN they show the explosion. If photon torpedoes travel at warp (faster than light right?) then the explosions would be instantaneous. Don't ST ships battle at sublight speeds anyway? So unless they zip in at warp, pop off a shot, zip back out, zip back in ad nauseum I don't think the hyperjump vs warp argument works.

I am assuming that ST photon torpedoes and the various BC3K missiles would pack about the same punch in this particular fictional scenario we are talking about. ST Phasers would pack about the same punch as the BC3K IOD and PTA and so on and so forth. I would have to give Warp speed to Star Trek and the weapons ranges. Given that ST wins even if weapons were totally comparable. I'm just thinking of the visually close battles one would get into in Starfleet Command. Entirely different from what everyone else is talking about. Nice theories. I enjoyed discussing. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
