Ok, this is cool: a couple years ago there was a very high-quality fan film called “Star Wreck: In the Pirkenning” which eventually pitted the Star Trek universe (Or at least a parody thereof) against the B5 universe (Or at least a parody thereof). Despite my raving about this for several years now, no one seems to want to watch it, much to my annoyance. (Like lots of fan films, it’s pretty funny, but unlike some of them, this is intentionally funny, as it’s a parody). Anyway, since all many of us care about is watching big space ships blast hell out of each other, someone has gone and taken the final massive battle sequence, cut out all the dialog and actor bits, and the impressive and technically-accurate results are available here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLk0hhWBhEE&feature=related and part two is available here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PucduOfLkvI&feature=related

Trek and B5 use different basic technological limitations – no shields nor transporters in B5, no Armor or fighters in Trek – so it’s kind of a fun watch, though it’s kinda’ long. And if you’d like to know more about Star Wreck: In the Pirkenning, consult your local library. Or just click here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Wreck#Star_Wreck:_In_the_Pirkinning_.2...

So how powerful were the Excalibur’s guns, again? http://www.babtech-onthe.net/alliance/excalibur.html
