http://dvice.com/archives/2009/01/sc...owdown.php?123well? Who do you think would win?Any fan of more than one science-fiction franchise has thought, "What if the two collide?" Superman versus Peter Petrelli, the Cybermen versus the Borg, Mortal Kombat vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. For us, we like to ponder which tech toys would win out in head-to-head match-ups. For instance, could the Death Star take on a fleet of Shadow vessels from Babylon 5?
In what we hope is the first of many sci-fi tech contests, we look for a victor between the Starship Enterprise from the original Star Trek and the Battlestar Galactica from the new, um, Battlestar Galactica (disclosure: The SCI FI Channel, DVICE's owner, broadcasts BSG). Will Trek's futuristic technology win out over the down-and-dirty battlestar? Or will simplicity and durability endure?
