The Most Powerful Weapons In The Sci-Fi Universe
< >
Vogon Constructor Fleet Fair Use
Understanding one's tools is important, but it's especially paramount when dealing with weapons. Whether you're a Green Beret raising, outfitting and arming a rebel army to go out and collect Stormtrooper heads or preparing for deployment with a platoon of Space Marines, it's imperative that you grasp the capabilities and limitations of the weapons at your disposal, particularly when it comes to relative power: after all, it's better to bring a gun to a knife fight than vice versa. We've already discussed the real-life equivalents of popular science fiction weapons along with the most powerful energy sources in the sci-fi universe, but when we found this handy infographic from Fatwallet.com, based on the science of power as expressed in joules, we knew that we'd be remiss if we didn't arm you with this additional knowledge. 

Don't be the guy or girl who shows up for single combat with an F-ray gun. You'd be better off with the bone from 2001: A Space Odyssey, or better yet, a Vogon Constructor Fleet.
