In this debate, i will argue how the Covenant from the Halo universe could beat the Empire from Star Wars if the two armies were to clash. Con will argue how the Empire would win. Keep in mind their are 2 different battlegrounds to this fight: land and space.

R1: acceptance
R2: Land battle abilities/units
R3: Space battle abilities/units
R4: Rebuttals

Good luck, i've been waiting to do this a long time!

I believe that the Galactic Empire from Star Wars would easily be able to defeat the Covenant From Halo. The reason i believe this is that is that the galactic empire was equipped with two DS class battle platforms also known as death stars. These weapons were powerful enough to destroy an entire planet. Not only did the Empire have the ability to completely destroy planets, they also had several million warships at it's disposal designed for heavy combat. If the empire were to face off against the Covenant they would direct the Death Star and it's millions of escort ships with it toward the main base of the covenant: High Charity. Upon arrival at High Charity the Death Star would fire it's main Superlaser and destroy the main base of the covenant and proceed to destroy all planets occupied by the Covenant. Not only that the Imperial ground force was in the trillions of soldiers and if one magazine from a assault rife can drop an elite's shields then a laser rife would tear through the elites. Also if the covenant could be defeated by one guy then the empire could send in Darth Vader to do the job that master chief did.

First off, round one was acceptance only, but i'll allow it (i will explain why in round 3)

Since the 2nd round is land battles, lets look at the different types of covenant troops, shall we?

Grunts: The most numerous fighting force of the Covenant. Willing to blow themselves up for the Covenant (Suicide Grunts)
Jackals: Support troops, have shields on arms to defend themselves, though they automatically blow up if hit with enough power.
Elites: The main force of the Covenant. Come with wide variety of tactical gear (overshields, jetpacks, etc:) Generals use plasma swords and plasma turrets.
Brutes: aliens with attitudes. Come with many weapons (Brute Chieftans have overshield and wield gravity hammers)
Skirmisher: upgraded Jackals with enhanced speed and jumping capabilities. Some have elbow blades made of plasma.
Hunters: Walking tanks. Always found in pairs (Bond Brothers) and can take down entire squadrons of UNSC soldiers.

Now lets see about their land vehicles:

Wraith: 1-seater ship armed with plasma machine guns
Ghost: Think of a floating purple 4 wheeler with guns on the sides of it.
Tanks: Covenant Tanks armed with minigun and tank barrel
Drop Ships: Used to transport Covenant soldiers, has cannon on under side

(Just so you know, the death star doesn't count as a land vehicle, so you'll have to wait for round 3 to use it.)

This is probably before the events of A New Hope, so the Death Star would still be good(and not being built for a second run). Also, HE STOLE MY DEBATE IDEA (http://www.debate.org...)

I forgot to say how the aim of a Stormtrooper is TERRIBLE! they would more likely hit a fellow Stormtrooper behind them then hit there target.
