> I don’t know what would happen but high charity better make a move before the death star fires her lasers. I am imagining the fight to look like a turn table RPG (or Traditional RPG). Like Death Star uses Super laser, High Charity evades. It’s a funny way of thinking about it.
I say this: They call them laser guns and such in SW but they obviously fire shots of varying types of plasma and ionic energy.
That being said, yes the Death Star fires a high intensity plasma-shot as opposed to an actual laser shot. This makes it so there is a slim chance HC can slip-jump out of a super-shot. But remember, all 3 SW super-lasers I mentioned are all capable of FTL.
The Death Star doesn’t need to fire its laser to destroy civilisations. It merely needs to enter a low enough orbit to affect planetary bodies of water and and then just a little farther to affect tectonic plates. HC is nowhere as dense with its length, but still holds the mass of a medium sized asteroid.
The Eclipse usually doesn’t even fire its laser either. It was so massive it would just ram most vessels. Its wedge shape design made it possible to ram even space-stations like a cleave.
Now the Eclipse vs a Super-Carrier… Hmmm. I say the Eclipse would need be outnumbered by at least 3 to 1 to loose. There are 4 HUGE differences to why the Eclipse has the advantage.
- The Eclipse is smaller and more agile than a SC.
- The Eclipse is equally matched in shielding but more dense in construction. The SC has a huge flaw in bottle necking its forward section so tightly.
- The SCs superweapon is on its belly. The Eclipse, on its ramming bow.
- SuperWeapon Power. With sustained firing, the SC can melt the surface of a planet 1acre at a time. The Eclipse cut through the mantle of a planet in the same the SC melts an acre of surface.
