200 gigatons should be enough to level california.
This is from the other site - again, no numbers.
To use a real-world example: the Chicxulub asteroid created an impact of 100,000,000 megatons (100,000 gigatons if my math is correct), which would suggest that a 200 gigaton impact would NOT, in fact, level California.
not according to this site. http://www.stardestroyer.net/Empire/Ess ... llers.html
says 10 to 100 gigatons can do this:
Land impact destroys a large state (eg- California, France, Japan) and produces enough atmospheric dust loading to affect global climate, freezing crops. Ocean impact creates hemisphere-spanning tsunamis but no global climate change. Global ozone layer is heavily damaged.
maybe you should start a thread and debate this with everyone.
Moving the goalposts, ignoring canon, inventing stuff out of thin air, not backing up your claims. It's hard to debate worse than you do. But you know what? I'll play along for the moment just for show. That's right, every SW ship can release tachyons. In a controlled manner, too. Now, I'm sure you're going to next claim "inverse" means something important, even though an inverse tachyon pulse is just a form of scanning. One might also note that the Federation only learned to utilize tachyons beyond the 22nd century, while it's common enough in Star Wars that it's merely an unremarkable device fit on tiny snubfighters.
Besides, your so-called superweapon requires three *divergent* timelines inverse tachyon pulses converging at the same spot to create an eruption, and that's taking all your bullshit at face value. It'll be most interesting to see what kind of excuse you'll try to mount next.
I say you need federation technology because they use their main deflector dish to produce this effect as well which could be significant. Star wars ships don't have this ability. And, yes, there's the question of what "inverse" means before jumping to conclusions that star wars has this technology you should figure that out (and if you can't then that's just too bad for you).
There is a vast region of space past the mid-rim of the star wars galaxy uncharted by any known galactic power. If it was really necessary for a ship to venture into their galaxy undetected they could enter their galaxy through the uncharted region and conduct the attack there.
