No. I'm saying that it would win in a battle from what we've seen of it, as in, the power it has demonstrated.

Did you watch "Return of the Jedi"? The second Death Star used its superlaser during the battle with the Rebellion, and each shot only destroyed one ship. If the superlaser has the power that you say it has, it would have just fired a single blast towards the heart of the fleet, thus destroying the Rebellion's command ships, and ending the battle.
Those weren't full-powered blasts. It was using shots on a much smaller scale, because a full-powered shot would take much longer to recharge. In Episode 4, it clearly shows the power to destroy a planet. If it can do that, it can destroy the center of a battle station, and anything in the way would simply be torn through.

This poll is invalid. We don't know enough about the Star Forge to make a proper argument. For all we know the Star Forge could have put up a giant shield of Dark Side energy to block the superlaser, and then blasted the Death Star with supersized Force Lightning.
This, I agree with. Again, we don't know its full potential, so we can't say whether or not it can send giant flying Force monkeys out, or anything for that matter.

ok, the death star vs the star forge, star forge makes ships, ships shoot death star and do nothing, death star shoots star forge and it blows up.


There is no Palpatine. No Empire. No Jedi. There is no Light. No Dark... Just you, and I, here, now.

And yet.....no sign of anything like that remotely happening in the game. As a matter of fact, once Bastila's Battle Meditation was removed as a factor in favor of the sith side(LS)...the Star Forge became an easy target. Her Battle Med also was what turned tide againt Rep fleet w/DSR. So....w/no BatMed, it seems the SF was very vulnerable. In the case of the DS, even its one weakness required the Force to be overcome (if only as a plot device). It seems that in a straight up fight, the DS (a mobile battle station) would defeat the SF (a stationary munitions factory).

As an aside, it's funny that the SSDs in ROTJ didn't have a redundant set or set of bridge controls in the event the main bridge was taken out due to shield failures, as in the film. They WERE huge ships.

We don't know what the Star Forge can do.
Revan only used it as an armory and not even at full capacity to prevent himself from being corrupted like the Rakata.
Malak wasn't the most brilliant one. ^^
And besides, the secrets of the star forge could've been buried along with the Rakata. What we saw as a ship factory could very well only be the shell to what was an extremly powerful dark side entitity.
Something that could corrupt a whole species probably had a great connection to the force, and who knows how that could have been used.

AND, the Star Forge was protected by an EM field/energy shield that POSSIBLY could be powerful enough to disable the Death Star and crash it into Lehon if it came close However, we can't know for sure as the largest thing we've seen it disable is Hammerhead class cruisers.
