Suppose a huge flying battleship was coming to destroy your city...

Let's say there's an alien invasion going on. You learn that within an hour a huge flying battleship (maybe like THIS ONE) is on its way to your city armed with a cannon that will turn the place into a crater in just one shot. What do you think you'd do? Run away? Find a way to fight back? Cower in the dark corners of your house and hope the thing decides to change its mind?

Personally, I'd attempt to find some way to fight back. Too bad I'm not gifted in the ways of “The Force”…

and I need to stop drinking coffee before heading off to work…

Graze its bullets, use my spell cards and never ever use my bombs even though I have like seven that I've saved up from the previous five stages whilst shouting ‘SO MANY BULLETS I CAN SEE INTO FOREVER’.



This is my jam.

Considering I live in a city that is of no tactical, political, or economic importance, I expect the aliens would just save the ammunition/energy and just keep going and blow up Pittsburgh instead. I'd place enough trust in this to do nothing.

Seriously, who'd want to blow up a city that does nothing?

Good Point

I'd infect the mothership with a virus, using a laptop and a stolen alien space craft with Will Smith as my co-pilot

I would gather a team consisting of myself, a generic love interest, a streetwise child, a wisecracking black man and dog named Chips, then we'd arrive and defeat the aliens in just the nick of time. Afterwards I'd sell the rights to the movie.

I'd be like “HEY DUDES I GOT SOME RED VINES DOWN HERE, LIKE A FUCK LOAD! COME ON MAN HAVE SOME!”

Who can resist the call of red vines?
unless these Aliens like Twizzlers then they can go screw themselves.

Simple. Get an aeroplane, fly into the mother ship, upload a virus and fly back out, shoot the other ships down, then sit back and watch the credits roll…

Or crap myself in fear, one of the two!

In this hypothetical do I get an awesome fighter plane or anything? If I do get one, do I know how to fly it? If I don't I don't see how I could reasonably fight it so I'd make a run for it.

Well unless they can get me into a fighter plane, and considering I don't just crash said fighter plane, all within one hour….then I'd say there wasn't much I could do about it. XP Running would be pointless if it was a world invasion.

If anything I'd try to make them abduct me so maybe I could give them hell IN the ship! XD Maybe even try to take it over and go after other ships with it! Mwahahaha!!

……
……

Nah, once again I'd probably just crash it into the ground accidently. Oh well, one less ship to deal with it. >_>

It really depends if the battleship is coming for my city ONLY. If that were the case, I'd just move. Preferably someplace warmer.

If the battleships are everywhere and not just my city specifically, I would gather together as many people and robot-bears as I could and would lead a rag-tag expedition to the far reaches of the universe.

Check my first post. There's a video link in there. And I'm talking about the really large ship in the video, or something like it. Y'know… the one that's so big it won't fit on one screen. :)

Realistically, I'd just leave and make for the woods. Whopping relevant target those maple trees are.

No matter the situwation I would propably just go into the mountains. I mean I don't have a way to fight back nor do I know why they are here. I'd bring a radio to make sure I know whats going on.

I seriously doubt that any alien (or any other force for that matter) would consider my lil flyspeck town a decent target, but if it came to it, I think I'd grab the nailbat of doom, try and find a way onto the mothership, and see how many of ‘em I can take with me. Not sayin’ I'm some kinda warrior, but a good ol' fashioned country beatdown might catch ‘em by suprise…maybe enough of a suprise that I could get the drop on a few of ’em at least.

Careful which mountain you hide out in. It might be hiding a flying battleship buster cannon or something like that… :)

Or worse… the alien base that's launching those flying battleships!

That would give me the option at trying to kill the aliens then. Still the battleship and crash it into the base sacraficing myself for the good of Japan!…and the other nations I guess.

a flying space battleship eh?

Well, any fighter plane would be worse than useless- you couldn't do anything to the ship, but just flying in it would it pick you out as a target.

A conventional battleship was designed to be the toughest ship that could be built- Able to take a hell of a lot of hits and sink anything in existence.
It had two major vulnerabilities because it was strictly a surface vessel: From above and from bellow- submarines and aeroplanes.

A ship designed for fighting and flight operates in a fully 3d arena. There IS no equivalent of air attack or undersea attack to a space battleship. As a “battleship” it will be virtually invulnerable to any vessel that isn't equivalent to it. Long range sensors on-board would make great waves of lessor craft pointless- it'd vaporise them as before they were closer than a few thousand kilometres.

…The major vulnerability is that the flying battleship isn't big enough to out gun a planet. So Lonnehart's buster cannon hidden in a volcano would do it.

With the ship on it's way… you're buggered. If the planet knows it's coming though and it's not there yet, all that's needed is building up big enough defences on the earth as well as defences and sensor networks throughout the solar system- that way it couldn't even try and bombard us with meteorites. -_-

I would organise people to construct numerous fake monuments outside the city.
Aliens can never resist blowing up land marks, so we could keep them occupied till the microphobes in earths atmosphere killed them/ will smith and Jeff Goldblume uploada vrisu to their mother ship/ the Stargate SG-1 team go through the gate onto the ship and destroy it/ flash gordon arrives/ someone plays Slim Whitman's song, “Indian Love Call”, on the radio and the aliens brains explode.

Aliens have a lot of weaknesses, so it is just a matter of keeping them occupied till someone finds how to get rid of them.
