I suspect now, having taken the bold step of suggesting that the man is wrong, I have no doubt "crossed" him and made an enemy for life. I wonder if this means he will now snipe at me in private from his live journal and threaten me as well.
These have to be the most ludicrous examples in the databank I have found

I don't take home-made measurements on speed; only what's written by the 'experts' (authorized personnel), and according to what's written, Slave-1 is capable of reaching a maximum velocity of 2.5 kG (2,500 G) of acceleration and sustaining. Also, Jango Fett did not do the most major modifications on Slave-1; technicians from Kuat Drive Yards did. They also did work for his 'son', Boba.
And as if that were not bad enough, he repeats the mistake again:http://groups.msn.com/StarTrekVsStarWar ... ssage=2737
According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia, a Reference Guide to the Future (Updated & Expanded Edition), normally, full impulse is rated at 270,000,000 kph. That's 25% the speed of light. According to Star Wars, the New Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels, the fastest the new X-wing class starfighter can hit is 3,700 G in space; that's about 37,000 kph. An A-wing can hit 5,100 G (about 51,000 kph). In the Star Wars: the New Jedi Order novel "Destiny's Way", a Jedi Knight committed suicide in an A-wing starfighter at 50,000 kph.
What is ironic is that, in referring to the New Jedi Order, Mr Virus-X ignores novels such as "Star by Star", which explicitly state SW fighters and other vessels can travel at near-c (which is repeated in later novels like Traitor). He also ignores the obvious fact that there was examples of reletavistic movement in DEstiny's Way, as well (true, on the Vong side mostly, but Vong fighters are comparable to SW ones.)
This is perhaps my second favorite set of commentary:http://groups.msn.com/StarTrekVsStarWar ... ssage=2397
2. Only a Jedi could destroy the Death Star - so there is no hope for such an attempt by the Federation to succeed.
Please. A Tomahawk-class cruise missile from the USN is more than able to hit that 2-3 meter target (the thermal exhaust port). If ONLY a Jedi could do it, it's just more demonstration as to how bad their technologies truly are.
3. Vader vs. Anyone in Star Trek = Vader would win
Look at the episode "Unnatural Selection". The UFP Starfleet could manufacture Jedi; superior ones, at that. Look at the Ocampa. I seriously doubt they'd feel threatened by anything Vader did. If he was so bad, he'd probably still be alive, now. I don't even think a Vulcan could have too much to fear from him, considering they do intentionally train in combat and the use of psionic power.
And again, repeated foolishness:

In that, I love how he claims an M-16 outranges a proton torpedo.
