Kanan and Jake Sisko avoid fire

Postby FaxModem1 » 2017-03-29 02:38pm

On planet X, Kanan Jarrus and Jake Sisko are on opposite ends of a football field. On Kanan's end, he is trying to reach the opposite end while avoiding Star Destroyer orbital bombardment. On the opposite end, Jake Sisko is trying to reach the opposite end while avoiding Klingon artillery.

Whoever does will have all injuries healed by Q, and sent back to their home, unharmed. Is either side able to score a touchdown?

Yeah, no one even bothered to comment on the ridiculous showing of turbolasers in the Rebels finale.

I'd like to rationalize it as the main turbolasers struck the shields while "flakburst" light turbolasers went "MIRV" and just scattered bolts in the area around the base to prevent escapees or knock people off their bikes or whatever.

Hey, maybe Klingon artillery has variable settings too, and can be set from "Chase panicked civilian" to "Blow up city".

In seriousness, Kanan's driving around multiple turbolaser blasts annoyed me when I watched the episode, so I made this thread in fun.

Does BOP fire count artillery? I seem to remember some ridiculously low powered shots at "God" with Kirk in close proximity. If this is what Jake Sisko is up against, I think he can make it depending on who's on the gunnery station. With Klaa and his crew at the helm, not only does Sisko survive, he makes it completely unscathed.

No, what's being referred to is Klingon Mortar fire in 'Nor the Battle to the Strong' where Jake and Bashir fall under attack while trying to get supplies from a runabout.

The practical effects used around the actors were understandably rather small for their safety. But not impressive from analysis point of view. (just like any shows really. See Sg-1 and orbital bombardment scene sometimes,)

I'd imagine the God-killing torpedo shots were dialed down for Kirk's sake, danger close and all that.

At some point, Kanan and Jake pass each other, and both have to deal with being bombarded by two enemies simultaneously? :)

But anyway, Kanan wins. Jedi beats kid reporter.

Edit: Presuming the kid reporter isn't Spiderman, anyway. :wink:

When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - Lincoln.

Makers of visual SF don't *get* weapons scale, pretty often.

...and a 15 minute CGI cartoon makes it even more of a challenge

I'm inclined to believe the 10 Teraton per shot heavies were focused on the base shield, while offscreen the light turbos indiscriminately fired on the surface to flush the Rebels under the shield (reducing the Rebels defensive footprint and giving the ground force a better strategic position.)

On the Trek end, Klingon mortars are likely designed to maim rather than kill, "optimistically" to flush enemies into the open to be fought in 'glorious' Bat'leth combat

God slaying torps with low yield, perhaps Klingon torps use iron casing and an anti-iron warhead....deities tend to have an..."allergy" to iron, so minimum yield was quite enough to end..whatever the Hell that thing was (Shatner ever float that it was meant to actually be Yahweh?)

On the issue of Torps, Voyager fired five torps into a Trabe ship which was in the middle of a dense city....nothing happened
