The Star'd be Dead. 8)

You should include Omegamatic too. I'd vote that.

LOL, at first I was like, ARE YOU FUCLING SERIOUS??!?!







... but then I saw who it was by. The guy who brought us The M-Files: The Essence of True Love. :crazy Haha, I actually read that again within the past six months or so. Ah, nostalgia.

Yeah, but the matter on hand. I would vote for Omegamatic if it was there, but I think everyone would too. So not that interesting of a poll. Let's think. To disable the Mothership, you need to shoot eight purple space amoebas. To destroy the 'Star, you need to shoot one thing. The 'Star can be defeated by Luke Skywalker, but it takes Commander Keen to get the Mothership.

So yeah, mothership wins.

However, the Borg would have freakin' pwnd if they had kept Captain Jean-Luc Picard in their ranks. 8)

I like Star Trek on rare occasion, but I'm not a huge fan.

well, the omegamatic can destroy the galaxy, not much contest there.

and i'm just imitating the other poll =/ but actually, this poll's kinda harder/worse because you can't really come up with arguments (even though any arguments you could come up with would have to be crazy).

imo, the vorticon mothership looks more maneuverable (although we're not too sure about its size). here, the first ship to fire its planet destroying ray probably wins, so that'd be the mothership.

i'd say the borg would pwn both though, even if their weapons aren't planet killers (or city-killers, see other poll). they'd beam over something like 2000+ drones and slowly assimilate the death star/mothership, all the while dodging the planet buster. can you just imagine the "*zap* *zot* Commander, they've adapted!"

lol, Borg Vorticons. :)

I would personally vote for the mothership, just because it can carry equal firepower capacity in what seems to be a much smaller space than that of the Death Star. Also, the Mothership's only weaknesses seem to be hidden deep within the core of the vessel and capable only of disabling the weapons systems, whereas the Death Star has this big silly hole that can blow it up entirely.

Of course, how impenetrable the outer hull of the Mothership is. Keen chooses to subvert it from within, but suppose a squadron of fighters were to assault the Mothership? In this case, it's impossible to judge.

The Vorticon mothership, why? Say they ever board each other's ships and fight it out face to face, at least the Super Vorticons can *aim.*
