The Gauntlet has been thrown down...

On Friday I spent most of the day at work in the company of two true scholars of nerdage and it was awesome. We shall call them The Night Beast and The Glacial Ninja to save their true identities. The discussion started at the now resolved Pirates vs Ninjas debate and swiftly moved on to who's win in a fight between an Imperial Star Destroyer and Battlestar Galactica...

 

Various Wiki's and The Night Beast's near encyclopedic knowledge of ship stats were consulted. No stone or FTL drive was left unturned. Was the conflict a straight up numbers game or were pilots and genre to be considered?

Someone said the Enterprise could beat them all..

more wiki's were consulted. Which enterprise? Which Captain?

This carried over to yesterday. The Star Trek and Star Wars miniatures were out on the demo table. The glacial ninja arrived again, slow but sure of himself. Who'd win. The Millenium Falcon or the Enterprise-D? That was the question and the more people we asked and drew in to our conversation, the more I realised I was surrounded by Han Solo fans. Nobody agreed with me. No-one saw the advantages the enterprise holds in the long fight and though I may look like a wookie sometimes, my heart likes with Trek. I've been reliably informed that Picards baldness isn't catching, so having him as captain is more appealing now.

So one of todays jobs is to pit them against each other. Can Solo's Falcon take on the enterprise? Will the wookie win out over the android as co-pilots? Can R2-D2 do anything to help and what will become of Wesley?

I look forward to finding out.

Also, as a reward for reading all the way to the bottom, anyone coming in to the shop today and saying the name "Porkins" to me gets a 15% discount on anything they buy. It is our birthday next weekend after all...

We're having a party at the end of the month too...
