Oberth-class Starship vs. Disney-canon ISD

Post by Khas » Wed Oct 10, 2018 2:26 am

Okay, I'm just desperate to find ANY possibly fair Trek-vs-Wars starship match-up nowadays, so... here goes.

1 Federation Oberth-class Starship vs. 1 Imperial Star Destroyer (Disney canon).

And yes, I know that the Oberth-class can be one-shotted by a Klingon Bird-of-Prey. But with the nerfing of SW that's been going on for the past decade, I just want to see if 1-on-1 starship matches could still work.

If the ISD is anything like the TLJ opening battle, the Oberth just has to fly directly at it somewhat quickly and it will be perfectly safe. However, if difficulties are encountered, the ship can swing out to a handful of kilometers distance and be fine for hours.

If the Oberth captain is evil, they could assassinate the other captain by hailing and doing the Laurel and Hardy "Who's on First" bit until the TLJ-esque Imperial captain's head explodes.

Aw crap, now I have to go check if an Oberth could fit the nose of an ISD within its open center just to screw with an Imperial Hux ("I've got your nose!”), or even to pull a Rogue One. I doubt it fits but that'd be hella-cool.

Sorry if this response seemed un-serious, but so did TLJ.

Ya know... only three years ago, I would have laughed my ass off at anyone who said that an Oberth could defeat an ISD.

Nowadays though.... it's a different story.

Sad to think that a starship that Federation civilians can use and own would defeat one of the prides of the Imperial Navy.

'Memery' aside, the ship-to-ship stuff ended for me in 2007.

And that was even before the Disney canon, to which I do not subscribe.
