Who'd win in a 3-way battle between The Entiprise NCC1701 (TNG series' ship) & three standard TNG federation ships || 3 Romulan War Birds NTG/DS9 era || 7 TOS Klingon birds of prey?

I don't know, but it certainly wouldn't be the 7 TOS Klingon birds of prey.

Need to be more specific...The Galaxy-Class Enterprise D, and three "standard federation ships", Excelsiors, Mirandas? And if by Romulan warbirds you mean D'Deridex class warbirds, they would almost definitely win.

By typical, you can presume that means any ship with the standard model they used for the special effects whenever they had a starship that looked rather ent-like that made up the majority of the ships the ent met up with when that was the only other ship in the show, so that it could be put up against the hero version of the ent model.


For Romulan War Birds, you can presume the three used when 3 were facing off with the ent and then 3 clingon Birds of Prey decloaked and the Romulan said essentially "we could still destroy you" and Capt. P. said basically that "There will be no victory for you here today (b/c of the losses the romulans would sustain)"

My thought was that the Romulans would decloak first and (not seeing the Klingons as threats) begin blasting at the Fed ships, and then the 7 Klingon ships would decloak and begin fighting both sides that were already locked into battle firing long enough that the other two forces would be badly damaged before they broke stationary firing positions and the thing turned into a melee dog fight between the 14 ships; whereas if it was Romulans against Fed they would probably be able to cripple one ship and get two others (not the ENT) down to 1/2 firepower, before the fed ships even raised their shields; and if it was the Klingons vs. the Fed that the Klingons (even though detected) would still probably get 3-6 torpedoes off with the Fed's shield down about 50% of the time and that only the Ent would survive, but it could do so with the destruction of all Klingon ships with saucer sever and the use of run abouts as war ships, and about 50% of the shields would be raised in time but the Klingons would each get a phasor blast and a torpedo or two off before the Fed ships fired, and the Ent could survive without separating or using shuttles, and 2 of the other ships would be crippled with most of the crew alive on both while the 3rd/4th would be intact but all hands lost.


But I wanted other ppl's opinions.

My thoughts:


I think the klingon would decloack before the romulans and then the romulan would watch (in safe distant) the fight between the Federation and the Klingons. I think the Federation would beat the klingon ships. And when the Federation feels safe the romulan would decloack. But I don't know who would win this battle

I agree.  The Klingons are more honorable than the Romulans, so they would want to do battle with the Federation.  I agree that the Enterprise would probably win, one-on-one.  Then, the Romulans would attack.


I don't give the Federation ship much chance, if caught by surprise by a cloaked warship.  But, if the Fed knows they are there and raise their shields in time, the battle could be more even.

The Romulans would probably win here. 3 Galaxy Class ships would beat 3 Romulan warbirds, but my interpretation of "standard" would be a Miranda class ship or something. The Klingons obviously aren't really in the game here since we're talking about TOS era

Point that's also important: Who's captain. I think Data could keep up with the romulans. But an unexperienced Starfleet captain? I don't think so.
