Hi, welcome to The Babylon Project! Thanks for your edit to the Great Burn page.

The claims or statements regarding the Warlock can be found on multiple sites on the net, such as http://www.isnnews.net/warlock/board.html, or the B5TECH Manual, arguably even more accurate than fan Wiki is. Also, the reference to "TWIN GOD LASERS" is in fact correct. The Warlock uses the same weapon that the Earth Defense grid used - also know as the "G.O.D" orbital defense platform. This is indeed fact. Because the Warlock uses the same weapon as the "G.O.D" orbital defense platform, it makes perfect sense to call the Dual lasers fired from the Warlock "Twin GOD lasers" (TWIN standing for Dual lasers, as seen in the Movie "Lost tales"), and "G.O.D" is the reference to the Earth orbital defense grid. Here is a link to the term "G.O.D" from B5TECH MANUAL http://www.b5tech.com/oldb5tech/earthalliance/earthallianceshipsandvessels/earthotherships/godsat.html
The reason that board is valid, even if user based, is because the board is from issnnews.net - which is used as "citations" and references for most of the information on the Warlock. So if issnews.net can be used as citations as seen on the bottom of the Warlock Wiki, then why not it's own official message board? I have edited the Warlock wording, but here is some information anyways:
Here are a few topics, on the very FRONT page, can't miss them. I cannot direct link for some reason.
Topic: Warlock-VCD comparison -argues the power of the Warlock. Some say it's stronger than the Victory some disagree. But it is clear from all of it the Warlock is EXTREMELY powerful. Fact it's being compared to the Victory class is HIGHLY worth noting.
Topic: outclass yea right - someone states the reasons why the Warlock is more powerful than the Victory class destroyer. Has valid points, and is correct in his techincal details of what the Warlock can do.
Topic: Fire power & Armor - first topic on the top of the board, can't miss it. This talks about how an Earth ship can go toe-to-toe with a Minbari ship. Explains how the foward main cannon on a Omega ship can cut a Whitestar in half in under 0.2 seconds, which is faster than a Minbari ship can destroy an Earth ship (approx 1.5 seconds as seen in the episodes). We have seen this in the B5 series itself, with the standard Omega class destroyer killing a Whitestar with a single shot (which was Vorlon AND Minbari Tech), instantly. Also in the battle vs the Advanved destroyers, White-star after white-star after white-star was being destroyed by Earth Omega ships. All in a single shot from an Omega destroyer - completely destroyed a Whitestar. Clearly, this proves that an Earth ship CAN go toe-to-toe with a Minbari ship. ALSO, as seen in the movie "A Call to Arms", the Warlock class destroyer goes through the "shadow death cloud", while being constantly fired upon, and still makes it out alive, destroying many drakh ships in the process. I think that's even more evidence of the Warlocks power, considering it can take on and survive the DRAKH. Also, another thing from the movie itself - the "old earth ships" (Nova, Hyperion) fired on the main Minbari war crusier, COMPLETELY ripped through the hull armor like it was nothing, and killed their leader. So imagine now what Earths new ship, the Omega class or Warlock could do to the same ship - a Sharlin. It's Cannon beams would probably tear directly into it. If the old Earth ships could tear into a Minbari Sharlin and straight through the hull, than Earths newer Omega destroyer's much more powerful Laser would tear into a Minbari ship. And this is the Omega we are talking about, less powerful than the Warlock. So that's more proof an Earth ship can take on a Minbari ship.
One last link, pretty knowledable post, stating that a Warlock can indeed go toe-toe with a Minbari cruiser. Doesn't mean it will win, though. But it states all weapons combined, Warlock has 2.3 times the power-output than all the Sharlins weapons do. It is very unbaised too. It's a quick read, but informative.
As for the "TWIN G.O.D cannons"... In the movie lost tales, it is shown firing it's particle weapons, and it fires TWO particle cannon beams at once. This clip is on youtube if you want the link for it. Which is the exact same particle cannon laser found on the Earth's defense grid (or G.O.D defense grid, as seen on the B5TECH manual link). To further prove it has "Dual" or "twin" beams/lasers, according to Tim Earl's exact quote:
|Let me get a few things straight:without getting into particulars: the Warlock has 2 particle beam cannon|
Now, in the quote below, he says the particle beam cannons are the SAME ONES as the Earth Defense satellites, AKA "G.O.D" defense grid as I showed you on the B5TECH Manual. So the Warlock is confirmed to have 2 particle beam cannons -- the same particle beam cannons used on the G.O.D defense platform. So they have 2 particle beams, they use the G.O.D particle cannon beams, therefore, it makes perfect sense to call them "Twin G.O.D particle cannon beams". Or "Dual G.O.D particle cannon beams". Some say laser, but I guess the techincal quote is "beam". Either way, calling it "G.O.D" beam/laser is correct.
He say the particle beams where "so powerful" that no other ship before could use them, but the Warlock was the FIRST ship to be able to use them, thus, it proves it's firepower. Also, during the movie Call to Arms and the attack of the Drakh, the Drakh, who used Shadow Tech (which is the most powerful tech possible), their ships where destroyed by a SINGLE shot from a Warlock/G.O.D defense grid particle cannon shot. Any ship being destroyed in one shot shows MASSIVE power - but in this case it destroyed even a Drakh ship in just a single shot! Clearly showing the power of the Warlock. It might not have been said in words, but actions can sometimes speak louder than words, and evidence of it's power from the movie should count.
Thanks for your very constructive comments. I'll get to work on expanding the Endgame details ASAP126.96.36.199 03:34, July 29, 2012 (UTC)
