erm we didn't exactly kick their ass.

the apollo just covered the jumper while it entered it's bay and then jumped out. the deadalus has done the same thing several times against wraith ships.

The Odyssey is their best ship and no the Apollo cannot give as good as an Asuran ship can. The Asurans use technology from the most technologically advanced species known in this part of the Universe. Meanwhile, rail guns (based off of modern day technology) and naqudah enchanced missles are no match for their shields. They wouldn't even be a match for the shields of another Earth ship. We're just lucky that ship used energy weapons instead of drones. Even if Asgard shields can prevent drones from going through their shields, drones are always fired in a huge swarm so they would impact against the Apollo's shields at the same time and take out their shield in the blink of an eye. Their use of energy weapons instead just gave the Apollo a believable chance to take some damage before having to run, but no doubt they would still lose in a prolonged battle.

Anyway, yes, an Earth ship can handle a Cruiser. Their missles would also make quick work of a Hive but for the fact that their Darts intercept the missles miles before they hit the Hive. Therefore, they have to rely on their rail guns which aren't largely effective against a ship of that size.

Did we watch a different episode?

The Apollo stood up surprisingly well to the Asuran ship's weapons but didn't kick its ass by any means. I'm pretty sure they would've got blown up if they hadn't high-tailed it outta there.

And we've been able to destroy Darts and Cruisers since S2. See 'The Siege 3' and 'Aurora'

I think the assuran ship was actually firing drones, however not big swarms of them, not sure why. Might have something to do with the fact that it takes huge amounts of power (03x01) so it might result in a shield collapse. For example a puddle jumper can only fire 4 drones at a time. Still, its quite bizar.

Also the improvements rodney made to the shields of for example the Daedalus might be paying off.

Or any size, for that matter...except darts...

Not at all : the damage took by Asuran ship was negligeable .

The apolla tickled the shields but thats about it. I think it will be the Daedalus will be the first to have the new upgrades from the Asgard in the Pegasus galaxy

even then it's the same as all the othe x-304's anyway i'm sure so it wouldn't do much difference.

as they fly away 2 rounds from the replicators fly right past the apollo but drones normally follow their target. they look like them thou

I doubt it on both counts. The Asuran ship was perfectly capable of firing drones. If they had them, the didn't fire them because they wanted to find Atlantis's location. Also, I don't think Mckay's upgrades would be that effective against an Asuran ship.
