[url=http://stargate.wikia.com/wiki/ZPM_powered_Hive_Ship] This [/url] VS the UNSC fleet pre- and/or post-Halo 3.
3 of them vs UNSC/Covenant fleet [joint operation] pre-H1 and post-H3.
Forerunner Dreadnought is disqualified. Same w/the Halo Rings.
It depends on how long the ZPM has had to modify the ship's systems. If given the time for the full shipwaide "mutation" (as I'll refer to it) to occur, then nothing short of a salvo of Mac rounds could puncture the Hive Ship's hull. If the Wraith ship was discovered before then...it's much more likely the UNSC would win.
Interestingly, the Wraith don't have precise long-range sensors, so it would be hard for them to determine if they were moving in to a trap. And even partially upgraded their traveling distance in hyperspace is limited. Remember, they were *ambushed (asterisked because of the huge failure of the ambush) halfway between the Pegasus and Milky Way en-route to Earth by the Apollo and the...whatever that Chinese ship is. (The Sun something...) You'll have to forgive me on specifics like that. I'm working from memory here.
While we're at the beginning of this conversation, let's ban some other things. For the UNSC, the NOVA Bomb. Simply put, there was only one and it was already detonated. For the Stargate fans, the super-weapon on Dakara and the Ancients. Let's just try to keep the playing field open to ships and tactical decisions this time. What do you think AC Matt Klassen?
1) ZPM hive is fully upgraded, OR it could be 90%/95% upgraded when the UNSC discover it for added suspense...
2) The ships that tried to ambush the hive [and got roflstomped] were the Apollo and Sun Tzu.
3) I agree. UBERweapons [planet-killing and above] are BS.
Okay. If the ZPM has fully upgarded the systems then I favor the Wraith. In my opinion, they have at least an 85% chance of beating most fleets.
The only thing I don't understand: doesn't it seem like when the ZPM was installed in the Wraith it made it way stronger than an Atlantean ship with the ZPM? Perhaps I'm mistaken and no Atlantean ship was seen in the series with a ZPM...but how does that make sense? Shouldn't the Ancient technology better utilize the Ancient power source?
1) lol. the UNSC would get stomped, but probably would...inflict minimal/medium damage on the hive...which would then heal over fast...
3 ZPM hives vs. the combined forces of the UNSC and Covenant [banning the superweapons]... who would win that?
2) There was Atlantis. :)
Remember, the Wraith had 10,000 years to advance after the battle with the Ancients [Who *** themselves over by not treating the Wraith as a credible threat until they were getting swarmed...just like the Forerunners...]. Who knows, there might even been ZPM hives flying around hundreds of years after the war had ended...
