Aliens (Independence day) Vs.
Posted 31 May 2012 - 03:48 PM
So how would they fare against a civilazation with similar technology?
Scenario 1: Vs. The galactic Republic during the height of the clone wars, their huge ship is spotted not far from Coruscant and the Republic sends a fleet up in response as the ship begins to break up into smaller vessels. Can the republic fleet turn back the invasion?
Scenario 2: Vs. The UNSC during the Covenant war, instead of Earth Reach is the target the humans were expecting covenant.
Scenario 3: Vs. The Federation, set after the Dominion war instead of the borg in first contact they get the aliens from independence day, ships in the fleet include the defiant and the Enterprise E
Any way these are the ideas how would each battle play out and who stands the best chance of winning?

The other battles I have to think about.

Aliens win Scene 2 but lose the rest in my view.

"Calculated distance from source is at three hundred and eight five thousand kilometers. It's coming from the Moon."
"They should be entering our atmosphere within the next twenty-five minutes."
So it's pulling around 256666.7 m/s.
A Venator could outpace that thing at 10 seconds of full acceleration. I'm not 100% sure on this, but I think Federation and UNSC ships could do that same, which basically means that if the Aliens appear over Coruscant/Reach/UFP Earth the Republic/UNSC/Federation has enough time to muster all their forces in preparation.
The last episode of Star Wars: Clone Wars (the cartoon one, not the CGI one) show that Obi-wan and Anakin were in the Outer Rim when the Battle of Coruscant started. They receive a message from Mace Windu telling them that the Chancellor had been kidnapped, causing them to book it to Coruscant, they arrive not long after the Chancellor had been kidnapped. This means, if the Republic really wanted to they could call on ships from all the way across the galaxy to show up to repel the Aliens.
The Aliens also wouldn't be able to catch the Republic unaware, given that they don't rely on satellites to communicate their armies.
We don't know anything about their ship to ship firepower, but even if it's comparable to Star Wars firepower, they are outnumbered and outgunned.
Same as Scenario 1, (except for the pulling ships from all over the galaxy), but given the presence of AIs in the UNSC arsenal, the AIs might figure out that the Aliens have open links to their main computers being broadcast on unsecure channels. "We should them who they're dealing with." comes to mind. It could easily be that the UNSC sends them the virus to bypass their shields faster than Earth did.
Again the Aliens won't catch anyone unaware, and given the hilarious Star Trek technobabble stuff, it could easily be that they'd find some way around those shields. Even if they didn't, their ships might be able to destroy the Alien ships just as easily.
