If you are approaching a target at speed X, you still have a chance to peel away at the last moment. If you are approaching a target at the top speed your engines can provide, such that you cannot turn away or be deflected, that's speed Y. Speed Y is ramming speed. -JMS A tactic seen a few times fairly recently, and multiple times over the decades, is still one of my favorites to watch- afterall, who doesn't like seeing big stuff crash into other big stuff? (ok, not counting 9/11, but you know what I meant!) So, in addition to cataloging instances where this tactic is used (restricted to film & TV and maybe video games), feel free to discuss what you think about it's use- is it overused, underused, just right? What've been your favorites? (and, as a final warning, there will be SPOILERS involved here, of varying severity, for many franchises, including BSG, B5, SG-1, SGA, ST & more, so proceed at your own risk) For starters, I'll name a few off the top of my head and get some of the more obvious ones out of the way: -Arvel Crynyd's A-Wing collides with the Super Star Destroyer Executor, Return of the Jedi (though it's hard to say how much of it was intentional ) -Earthforce Destroyer rams a Minbari Sharlin cruiser, Babylon 5: In the Beginning -The Churchill rams another Omega-class destroyer, Babylon 5 -The Victory rams a Shadow Planet Killer, Babylon 5 : A Call to Arms -A Dominion ship rams into the Galaxy-class Odyssey, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine -The Enterprise-E rams the Nemesis, Star Trek: Nemesis -Goa'uld Ha'tak-class Mothership rams an Ori Mothership, Stargate SG-1 -Original Raiders kamakazi Battlestar Pegasus, Battlestar Galactica: Razor -Battlestar Pegasus rams a Basestar (or two ), (new) Battlestar Galactica -Wraith Hive Ship crashed into Wraith cloning facility (Stargate Atlantis) I know there's gotta be quite a few I'm forgetting, so let's have 'em!
