Before I open up The Overnight Open Thread, allow me to express the following:
DISCLAIMER: No Flame War is intended. No currency units will be exchanged.
Here is one of the most intriguing science fiction comparison pages I’ve encountered:
It’s amusing at times how fans of various science fiction series continue to compare their ships to those of other universes (Hey, I plead Guilty, Your Honor!), especially when it comes to weaponry. Toss those guns aside, and the discussion becomes quite interesting when it concerns travel from Point A to Point B:
It’s a little odd that a genre about science, the field of precision, can be so imprecise. The truth is that spaceships almost always fly at the speed of the plot. But, for those who refuse to accept that, this is a definitive guide to ship speeds, based on highly scientific computer simulations and highly unscientific speculation.
Go to Set A Course! to run the other races. And Engage! Or is that Jump!
