The header says it all. Which one of these massive and powerful starships would win in a fight?

I'll go with the Battlestar Galactica.

I think the Star Destroyer would win.

I'd also say the Star Destroyer would kick BS Galactica's butt...

Depends if they get to use fighters or not. Starbuck and Apollo could blow away the TIE Fighters and take down the SD. But one on one with no fighters involved, the Star Destroyer has far superior firepower.

This is one of those questions my friends and I debated endlessly back in late '78 and early '79 during gym class. I think the Star Destroyer would win- it just looks cooler.

Are we talking classic Galactica, or new show. Cause the new show, Galactica is a piece of junk, while the classic Galactica was a top of the line ship.

The answer is......whatever the writer of the work of fiction chooses (asking what would "really" happen is meaningless).

It's a thought experiment in imagination. Are you always that literal?

I'd have to say the Battlestar Galactica would win in a one-on-one battle: While the Galactica is an old and very beat up ship, it's crew is made up of very battle-hardened warriors that have spent years fighting a much superior foe. They fight strategically and with everything they've got at their disposal. Your typical star destroyer is usually run by a bunch of bickering minion incompetents who are overconfident of their crew and ship's capabilities....they've also never faced any real challenge until the rebellion in the original trilogy. The star destroyer would be an easy target for the Galactica.....

This thread sure brings back memories of usenet threads in the '90s where the subject of an Imperial Star Destroyer vs the Big E (the Enterprise) would be endlessly debated. :) - Walter.
Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

How does "it's whatever the writer imagines it to be" conflict with "a thought experiment in imagination"?

Forget it. You have answered my question.

i would say it depends on the star destroyer

if it is the eclipse star destroyer or the executor star destroyer  then it would win do to size

and if vader is on the star destroyer then you have to worry about his force powers like chock

Bryan, welcome to the HTF!  I love it when new folks arrive and answer a 11 year old thread,  I mean that sincerely as I would never have known this was a topic that had been debated here.  Not that I am in the least bit surprised...
