Yes, I do. I don't think you know what you're claiming. Once more, I. Do. Not. Have. To. Show. They. CAN'T. Adapt to Imperial technology. [i]You have to show they can.
The Borg are roughly within the ballpark of imperial firepower,
. The Borg have GT and up level firepower as per what?
so therefore adapting wouldn't be as much of an issue.
Which is why they totally weren't losing in FC against Starfleet ships using weapons in the KT to maybe low end MT range. Weapons they already knew
how to adapt to, at least partially.
Realize though that when I say 'adapt' I don't mean 'become immune' though. However should they begin to assimilate imperial technology then it becomes another story altogether.
Again, as usual presupposes they can do so to begin with.
Alderaan. Continent-destroying beams for the Centrality Navy. Simple downscaling from Alderaan.
By 'continent destroying beams I trust you mean the SSD mounted superlaser?
No, by 'continent destroying beams' I mean 'continent destroying beams' that were explicitly called that
. And that wasn't even the actual Imperial Navy.
And the Dodonna Calcs have always been in question since it was revealed that the superlaser is hyperspace technobabble and operates on different principles then turbolasers.
What Dodonna calcs? To my knowledge the guy never presented any numbers on DS1 firepower whatsoever and the superlaser being hyperspace technobabble is at best lowest canon speculation. Source? Until and unless you present evidence for Alderaan not having been a DET event, it remains a DET event.
Because a sea level in atmosphere omnidirectional explosion will naturally look exactly like a DEW impact in a vacuum.
A sea level in-atmosphere explosion will look bigger
then an impact of the same weapon in space yes. What are you trying to say?
That'd be the part where you get an actual fireball on in-atmosphere explosions when space ones get you little other than gamma radiation so visuals of in-atmosphere explosions are essentially useless for determining the yield of weapons used in space?
At which point did I mention hundreds of TT per shot, pray tell?
Well you clearly support ICS yields, so I assumed that you did. My mistake.
Where do the ICS' claim TT per shot?
Actually Pegasus is what gives us midrange triple figure KT. And given you think in-atmosphere explosions are a viable standard to judge deep-space photon torpedo detonations by I'm not sure I give a damn about what you think a photorp detonation of a given yield would look like.
Did you even click the link I put up? Y'know, the one that showed the blaster cannons being used in-atmosphere???
And you know that was their full power because of... Not that I understand what the (to anybody sane deliberately dialed down) firepower of a fgightercraft with delusions of grandeur has got to do with turbolasers.
Found those calcs you asked for earlier btw:http://forums.spacebattles.com/showthread.php?t=124136
Spacebattles. I rest my case.
