USS Enterprise vs. Millenium Falcon: Know Your Facts

Smuggler’s spacecraft versus the space voyager. Star Wars versus Star Trek. This is one fan war that will never cease. In spite of the astonishing size difference, is it fair to put the Millenium Falcon, captained by Han Solo, up against the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D and its crew? How many difference can you spot, and which would win in a fight?

As far as the FTL speed conversion goes, Star Trek does have established warp tables that allow converting a warp factor into a distance/time speed measurement. Also, don’t get TOS (warp 14 was seen) and TAS (warp 30+ was seen) with TNG and later warp speeds (10 was the absolute maximum, effectively instantaneous travel), which used a revised scale.

Wrap? You mean warp, right?

I’ve yet to see one of these infographics that gets *everything* right….especially spelling. :)

Facts?

This parsec thing never fails to annoy me. Not the fact that it’s a distance but the fact that nobody knows WHY the run is calculated in distance rather than time.

Why distance? The Kessel Run is a blind trip through a nebula which has the added obstacles of asteroids and black holes. The standard “safe” route is 18 parsecs long but Solo bettered that and took a riskier, more skilled route at 11.5 parsecs by skirting a black hole.

So that’s why he has bragging rights, not because of the Falcons speed but it’s manouverability and his skill as a pilot.

This is a post-production explanation to fix the error

It mat be a post production fix, but its a pretty damn good one.

Han can shoot first at any Galaxy Class ship he wants to. Not that it’ll make any dent in them anyways…

He can not. The Galaxy class star ship can travel hundreds/thousands of times light speed. The Falcon can not shoot with Hyperdrive. The Enterprise would out run standard laser cannons. He would not even be able to see the Enterprise to aim. Now you are quite correct. Standard laser cannons would not even damage the Enterprise shields. According to Solo. The Falcon can go 1.5 light speed. The Enterprise would be like a F22 Vs a Sopwith Camel. It would not even require the Enterprise to split into 2 ships and surround the Falcon.
