The Star Destroyer is built for taking over or destroying worlds though. Give it a week and it can turn a planet into molten slag.

Err... but that's not one of the largest two ships. The Cradle is probably the largest continuous one, the Macross 7 the largest in total.

When you said "here" I thought you meant present in-game at the time.

Bigger then a Star destroyer? ...The falcon's gonna be WAY out of her league. Guess I'll just hang around with the Serenity.

gotta get this homework done first actually.

I only just noticed. Give me a chance.

Plus I'm going to log off now anyway; it's getting on for 1AM.

The Saint's Cradle is three to four kilometers. The Macross 7... how big is it with the city, I wonder?

With the city it is 7770 meters long. Although the city has a diameter of apparently 5000 meters, so, um...

...Yeah, it pretty much dwarves every other ship in this thing, ahah~ >.<

And then the Cradle dwarfs the rest. Both of them come from anime, too. XD

What sort of person claims that things are impossible when he just got dragged from somewhere and was confronted with a golden ship several kilometers long? XD

Maybe you should upgrade the Devestator to a Super star destroyer, just so it's on par with the others.

Basic star destroyers are 1,600 meters, so 1.6 kilos. The Executor class super star destroyers are 19 kilometers.

Ok, so it either gets dwarfed, or dwarfs EVERYTHING.

Err... there's two ships that begin to approach anything near that size. One is damaged and has a crew of thirty, the other is mostly a civilian city.

Admittedly, the former may have taken out several planets in one go, but it's not clear how or why. And at that point it was fully staffed.

And the latter took down eldritch abominations, but that's because they happened to be weak against rock music. >.>

But, um, yeah, mostly civilians.

I really doubt that's going to prove a necessary skill in this case. XD

Yeah, I doubt the Sound Force will be useful for much other than morale in this situation. Still won't stop Basara rushing out at the first sign of conflict to play his music for everyone, but yeah.

Ok, checking with the others and a super-star destroyer would slaughter EVERYTHING. (serenity especially). The amount of fire power a normal destroyer carries more then balances out for size. seeing as the other large ship is a colony ship, it would likely get slaughtered either way.

I wouldn't have let a Star Destroyer into the RPG unless I expected it to be balanced. Each of our ships has advantages and disadvantages.

I chose mine because I like the class and it doesn't rely on fancy technology for combat, but good old fashion, easy to fix guns.

[up][up] I know. Small unarmed freighter, not much armor. The incredibly Bad Ass crew dosn't count for much against Turbo-lasers and missles.

I'll post on the signup sooner or later. The falcon wouldn't screw things up at all.

until I put that plan in motion anyway.
