If our favorite droid R2 came into contact the evil creepy Dalek who do you think will emerge victorious?

Dalek.

I don’t think R2 has anything equipped that can penetrate the armor shell of a Dalek. Maybe he can blind it’s eye-stalk somehow. And unless I missed something, R2 doesn’t have a personal force shield like a Dalek either.

Very true. I could almost hear one saying Exterminate.

Dalek. SW astromech droids aren’t built for combat.

R2 would have plenty of time to flee while the stupid Dalek stood there screaming EXTERMINATE for an hour.

If it ain’t in the Robotech show itself… It didn’t neccessarily happen.

Thanks, Carl Macek, for introducing me to all these folks.  Even the ones who bug me.

Um… Daleks can move and hover fairly quickly. R2D2 would be toast.

Although, SW-EP.2: AOTC did show that R2 (at that time) did have small rocket boosters in the legs. R2 would still be toast, just might take the Dalek longer to do it.

Only if they quit screaming exterminate long enough to chase him.

Have to agree R2D2 would be destroyed by a Dalek, unless there was some type of data that R2 has access to that the Daleks needed.

I’m going to take a counter point out this and say that I think that R2 D2 unit can defeat a Dalek. 

So some of you may be asking how?

Well just like the Doctor, R2 D2 is a very intelligent and adaptable.  It is true that he has no real offensive weapon capability beyond being able to shock, but neither does The Doctor.  If the Doctor can defeat the Daleks without using heavy weaponry, then so can R2 D2.

R2 D2 can get an edge over the Daleks because simply put, Dalek’s have shown that they lack the ability to learn and adapt.  As such, I can see R2D2 setting up a trap by tricking the Dalek into going some place where R2 D2 can manipulate it and trap the Dalek into a defeating situation.

Plus unlike the Dalek’s, R2 D2 has very powerful friends.  If he really wanted to, R2D2 can also get a signal and alert the Rebel Alliance so as to call in an squadron of X-Wings and A-Wings to take out any Dalek’s that cause trouble. As for the Daleks, they have no friends because no one really likes them.

I would agree that R2 D2 could defeat the Daleks.  My basis is that in how many DW shows have shown the Daleks speaking in languages besides Human Earth English, when the Daleks were against the Thraals, you did not see them communicate to them in any other lanague than Human English.  R2D2 on the other hand replies on Humans to understand his beeps and noises and video projects.  Can you image what a Dalek would be shoot at it R2 projected Leia?  R2 could alone make the Daleks seek an image that is not there. I tend to believe the noise of R2 communication the Dalek would not bother with, and would bypass.
just my two cents.
