The "expert" on the set also didn't know the right way to pronounce "gigawatt" with a hard g sound... Of course, it is Hollywood, when do they get any type of technical crap right?

If that's a Boss 429 why does the side emblem say 428?

And why is it a hemi?

Re: What would you drive instead???

427/428/429, Ford had all three of these, produced for a few years through 68 to 71? (I believe those are the years). Although I am not sure of the specifics for that badging. Perhaps it's a photo of a different year/Boss.

Boss engines actually have a hemispherical engine heads just like Chrysler/Dodge. Boss was basically Ford's Hemi

EDIT: Actually I think that's a nine, the way the bottom of the nine curves makes it look like an eight from in the photo.

I can't believe somebody had to go delve into the Star Trek universe. You should be forever banned forever, Mr. Thomas. Star Wars > Star Trek.

i dont see how star wars is any better than star trek. both fans bases have their extremes that make you go "man wtf have you ever had a girlfriend?" both are science fiction, one tells a story of what our species could evolve to become if we get over our predispositions and misconceptions (star trek) and the other tells the story of a far away drama.

heres what i like about trek. Alot of it is based around current physics or technologies, or technologies that would likely come. check out Kirks communicator, a personal communication device dreamed of almost 40 years ago, now look at your RAZR. see anything similar? look at your laptop, now look at Picards desktop which was created in 1988, years before the laptop ever came into realization, see anything similar? theres actual physics behind the "Warp Drive" and scientists on both sides saying how it can and cant become real. the Transporter? again, dreamed by Trek, and is soon becoming a reality (somewhere they successfully moved one molecule a centimeter away from its original spot, small step, but one day that small step will lead into huge leaps). check out the displays of the ship-board systems in star trek, now look at the Microsoft Surface. its pretty safe to say most the things we dont even think of right now, were somehow dreamed of by Star Trek and later became actual reality.

Heres what i like about Star Wars. its all fantasy. you dont have to know how it works or why it works to like what it does. Hyperspace has less realistic physics behind it than even Warp Drive, however its still awesome to watch the Millenium Falcon fly through it. Lightsabers? again, not really feasible or realistically possible but sweet none-the-less. Super-Capitol ships and Fighter classes duking it out are most the times more fun to watch than the ship-to-ship combat you see in Star Trek, and IMO a navy-like fleet is closer to how we would evolve as a race when we reach the stars than how its pictured in star-trek.

however i do know, technology wise, trek>wars, if it came down to a slug-fest. standard laser batteries have little to no effect on the shielding of trek ships (which is greatly different than that of the star-wars type). treks sheild generators are inside the ship, not outside like a star destroyers is. even the largest of the trek ships are still very maneuverable, while they cant stop and turn on a dime like a A-Wing or a Tie Fighter, they wouldnt really need to, as trek ships have full 100% weapon arc coverage and highly-advanced targeting computers, any fighter would be lucky to escape from one, maybe two phaser blasts before the targeting computer finally picked them off like a gnat, which is probably why in trek universe fighters are not used as they are basically worthless. it would however take ALOT of trek ships to bring enough firepower to bear down and take out a Star Destroyer, while Photon and Quantum torpedoes do alot of damage, a Star Destroyer is ****ing massive, what, like 4.2 Kilometers long versus 1800ft long for the Enterprise E (which is the largest ship length wise in the fleet).

**** i put way too much thought into this, time to go eat.
