    Oh by the way: Who counts the lost cultures - and what do we not know because idiots destroyed, what they didn't like to understand?

    And what if Captain Kirk or Picard calls his buddy Q, whose magic, or whatever you want to call it, is way more powerful than any Force? Jedi can be killed, Force or not. Sith too. Even Darth Vader. Even Emperor Palpatine. Even Yoda (well, he just died of old age, basically, but, still). The Q are immortal. I cannot recall anyone from the Q Continuum being killed, ever. And they have damn near infinite power, like Gods.

    There was the one where the Q were in a civil war, the cost of q lives was alluded to, even the types of weapons being described as "not mere muskets and metal balls"...

    If there was ever anything to link the Star Trek and wars, the q would be that link to the force... Although, in Star Trek humans don't have those powers..,

    Q would want to egg on a conflict between the Empire and the Federation.

    Hmmm.....I guess this is at least somewhat fun for the nerds here amongst us?

    I'll PM Ian, this is right up his alley.

    Clearly, it was the Eridanian Empire, which in the fourth millennium spread the human race across the entire Orion and Sagittarius Arms of the galaxy, leading to the Greatest Golden Age in the history of the human race and.....

    UH-OH. I don't think I'm supposed to be telling you people this!

    I might be in big trouble with the Time Master. I'd better shut up RIGHT NOW!

    Something else I just thought of. In a shoot out between a bunch of Starfleet guys and a bunch of Stormtroopers, could the Starfleet phasers, which, honestly, always looked rather puny to me... actually even penetrate the Stormtroopers' armor?

    Excellent point, but, the phasers have a kill setting, and also wide angle... And for whatever reason they do have assault phasers.

    That would be a significant advantage to the storm trooper horde,

    Depends on the definition of Empire.

    The Roman Empire facilitated the spreading of both Greek and Christian philosophies of thought that became the foundations of modern civilization.

    But in some ways, this would be like claiming that the Third Reich, though it only lasted 12 years, was influential because all that death and destruction lead to post modern and post Christian thinking that has been blossoming since 1945.

    I'm going with Israel, though it was hardly, ever a large Empire.
