... Force-user would win, especially Dark Side user - they can absorb energy and redirect it.

Whoever tries to absorb the energy of a BFG9000 blast would probably go supernova right about then... ;D

Anyway, I'd trade my BFG9000 for a Tardis and go pursue some more peaceful endeavors if the lightsaber wielder would switch to the light side of the force... ;)



EDIT: but just in case they really push me, I always carry my experimental "planet buster" BFG10K in the backpack... :o

# Warning: Just came back from die Kneipe ;-)

Sonic screwdriver. The real beauty is the perception of the sonic device. It's as big as a pen. It makes a sound, and although the full set of features is never listed, it opens or closes all locks: mechanic or electronic. Only not deadbolt locks. But it does seem to be able to fix, mend or sabotage a fair selection of different appliances; both of what we have today and in the future. And to top all that, it can also serve as a weapon.

The Doctor usually is accompanied by a contemporary human. Who is of course as impressed with the device as the viewers at home are. This device is impressive bordering the absurd. "What _can't_ it do??" we wonder.

And then, just as you've settled for the concept of a device sooooo darn powerful, an alien brings you back to reality when they say with utter disdain: "It's _just_ a screwdriver"

Ah, I may be a bit of a sucker, but I love the contrast therein.


Still, between a lightsaber and a sonic screwdriver, I'd choose the screwdriver and good running shoes any day of the week.

Maybe a collection of Force-users, set up around a Massassai temple to focus the energy centrally ... yeah, that might work.

Also, BFG10K is a rapid-fire, localised plasma-stream - an overpowered plasma rifle basically.
