Versus three kinds of Babylon 5 ships:

1. Starship Enterprise (TOS) Versus Omega Class: Enterprise Wins, Hands Down

2. Starship Enterprise (TOS) Versus Whitestar: Enterprise Wins

3. Starship Enterprise (TOS) Versus the Shadow Battlecrab: Unknown



Feel free to add your own.

Rationale: The Enterprise can operate at warp. Further, the original Death Star has no shields in the Star Trek sense. Traveling at warp, and with the assistance of FTL sensors, the Enterprise could simply use its transporter to explode a photon torpedo inside the Death Star. Boom! Death Star go bye-bye.

I guess that using the transporter "never" occured to any of the writers? What better way to send reguards to one's enemy than to beam a photon torpedo into their lap. Would have made many ST episodes and movies too short!

Prolly violates some kind of ST Prime Directive. Wouldn't be cricket, and all that.

I would like to think that the defense systems would be programmed to kick in at the first sign of an unauthorized transport, if not it would be a monumentally stupid oversight for any advanced civilization.

There was an episode of Voyager where they beamed a torpedo onto a Borg scout ship to blow it up. This was also done to the Wraith when the Daedalus showed up in Stargate Atlantis.

It's no contest...
Star Trek is more powerful than most Sci Genres except for the rapidly developing Stargate.

As long as they beamed it to the right place.

True, but a photon torpedo could explode practically anywhere within the Death Star and probably cause so much catastrophic damage that the DS would be rendered simply a no-longer-so-spherical hunk of garbage.
