Reaper fleet awaiting the arrival of all fleets to come threw the relay, but instead a slip space rupture happens and out come the infinity and immediately engages the reaper fleet who would win? The infinity has its internal frigates and a few novas.. hit and run tactics and gorilla warfare can be taken into account. Doesnt have to be a front on assault... how would you captain a ship against those odds
Obviously the fleet....

A single ship going against anything is more likely than not going to lose. Strong as the Infinity may be she is just one vessel. Without supporting vessels she's as good as sunk in a fleet engagement such as when it came to the Bismark or the great Yamato/Mushashi.
Just Infinity won't have much a chance. A Covenant ship, like a Supercarrier? Now that gets a lot closer.
Likely the reaper fleet
Infinity does tons of damage to the fleet but it would lose out in the end.
Lol.

Given that there was no hard number placed on the Reapers (but given the fact that there were probably thousands of them, if not hundreds of thousands given the fact that they were able to mount full offensives across /every/ populated star system in the MAss Effect galaxy), there's no possible way the Infinity would survive. Especially given the fact that the bulk (meaning the vast majority) of the Reaper fleet was also stationed around Earth...

Now if we just ignore numbers for a moment, let's focus on the weapons of the Reapers. Those giant red energy lines? Not actually pure energy, but streams of hyper-accelerated metal that ripped through the most advanced starships of the Mass Effect universe like they were made of paper. Given the UNSC (and Covenant) don't have Forerunner grade armor on their ships, well, you're looking at Infinity lasting maybe a few rounds with /one/ Reaper. And that isn't taking into account the thousands of Oculus fighters a single Reaper can deploy, all of which have far more manuverability and firepower than any currently displayed UNSC or Covenant starship, or Phaetons.

So even if the Infinity could somehow survive and take down one Reaper, it would still find itself dealing with thousands of superior fighter craft in large enough numbers that the Infinity's defenses would simply be overwhelmed.

Now let's look at Infinity's weapon systems. IT has MAC guns, sure, but aside from shell size, a MAC isn't much different from the weapons found on the allied ships in the MAss Effect galaxy. It also has missiles and nukes, along with two weird front energy cannons, but the Infinity's weapons are not nearly on par enough to take down Reapers quickly enough to avoid taking terrible, terrible damage.

Aside from just tossing Forerunner Keyships and Didact ships at the Reapers in droves, the only ships that would really stand a chance would be Covenant Assault Carriers and Supercarriers (specifically the one the original Fall of Reach novel that sniped UNSC ships from light minutes away.

That's even another thing to take into consideration: MAss Effect universe ships are far, far, far faster at impulse speeds that UNSC ships are. By the time the Infinity killed one Reaper (if even possible), a dozen more could simply converge on it from the blind spots of it's heavy weapons and just obliterate it from there. You have to keep in mind that the overall speed of UNSC ships (and Covenant) in the Haloverse is the fact that they are video games. In the novels, UNSC starships are slow, ponderous vessels that take a long time to get from point A to point B WITHIN Slipspace, and even longer when in normal space.

Yeah, sorry kiddo, but your fanfiction is bad and you should feel bad.
Lol.

ME's weapons aren't all that powerful, an Alliance dreadnoughts main guns fire rounds with 15 kt's of power. Reaper capital ships are stated to be 3 times as powerful, so roughly 45 kt's power. Infinity could plop out a NOVA bomb and destroy most of them.
Lol.

The Reaper main gun is calculated as being equivalent to something around 400 kilotons of TNT at a high end. The strongest weapon in Mass Effect aside from the Reapers are Dreadnought mass drivers, which hit with the force of around 32 kilotons of TNT; they can explicitly obliterate almost any other ship in the setting, again aside from a Reaper.

32 kilotons of TNT is half of the force expenditure of an under-powered UNSC Frigate MAC from the pre-war era, the weakest MAC shot there is. The ability to destroy any Mass Effect ship is not impressive.

Meanwhile, the UNSC Infinity's shields can comfortably survive a direct ramming of a Covenant RCS Armored Carrier, splitting it in two, without any negligible effect on the shields, despite causing the Covenant ship to explode along its plasma lines. That is several megatons of force there. It can also then survive the ensuing space battle with the Covenant fleet, again without much concern. All told it would have tanked numerous megatons of force. Its armor can also survive an impact with an asteroid; it causes the asteroid to crack on impact, and while the ship took damage on the interior, it on the whole survived without major damage. It has an armor thickness of 4.9 meters of Titanium A-3, ONI's newest and most durable hull metal.

Its MAC guns, of which it has 4 of the newest type, can pierce the hull of the Mantle's Approach, something the SMAC network and UNSC defense fleet failed to do. The SMAC weapons hit with the force of 51.6 gigatons of force for every shot they make. To explain what that means, 51.6 gigatons is 51,600,000,000 kilotons. A Reaper would have to fire its main gun around 129,000,000 (million) times to achieve the same level of damage.

The Infinity MAC weapon succeeded where the ODP grid failed and did damage to a Forerunner ship.

It is also armed with the following

Tens of thousands of missiles of varying yields, at least 8 megaton grade nukes and more. The Occulas fighter swarm can be matched by human pilots; the Infinity also has a pulse laser grid designed to snipe small fighter craft as they approach. They can hold an Occulus swarm off for a time, depending on the size of the swarm.

The Infinity will lose to the whole Reaper fleet, but a single Reaper would be a cake walk for it.
The Reapers would win through sheer numbers. Against something like a CSO Supercarrier, on the other hand, I think they might lose. The Reapers' biggest strength is their kinetic barriers. Plasma weapons would ignore those. The LNoS could one-shot a Reaper. Heck, the T&R could probably one-shot a Reaper.
infinity runs away because its way faster.
A good idea, but the Infinity would loose, just due to sheer numbers. Still I think she would take 50% of the reaper fleet with her on the way down. and a lot more if Ramming her way thur a few of the lighter/smaller reapers is a valid battle plan.
Id say reapers since they were pretty well advanced and the infinity doesn't seem that much more special than any ME ship I recall seeing.

No just no the infinity is far superior than any me ship known in firepower and sheilding
Is this even a serious question? Infinity would go splat. Sure it might take down a couple reapers by concentrating fire but once the reaper fleet opens fire...We are talking about thousands of ships firing several seconds long streams of metal at fraction of light-speed. At the same time. No amount of plot armor is going to withstand the energy released in that. And lets not forget that the reapers aren't actually ships but synthetic living beings, able to to analyze, react and co-ordinate at a speed and perfection no human-crewed ship, even with an on-board ai, could hope to match.
I think the Infinity could do some serious damage to the fleet, but would Reapers would eventualy win.
Also, the reapers don't use slipspace drives. Infinity could do some flanking manouvours depending on how fast it can cycle jumps, probably not fast enough but it might buy them a little more time.

Also, the Infiity has a bunch of frigate stashed in her belly. are they included in this fight?
That said, they probably arn't much use other than distractions.

The frigates would be highly valuable. Contrary to popular belief, the Reapers are exceedingly weak. It wouldn't surprise me if a Strident frigate could go toe to toe with a Reaper and win.

The UNSC became much more powerful after they started incorporating all of their upgrades.

Even so, I think Infinity can only hold around 10, they may be able to put up a good fight, but against thousands of Reapers...
unless shepherd is on infinity, the reapers would win

U can have captain keys at her helm if need be

The only documented triggering of a NOVA Bomb occurred when it was accidentally detonated by a group of Huragok stationed on the Covenant Sublime Transcendence. Immediately after Kwassass, a fellow crew member, deciphered Admiral Whitcomb's message, the Huragok, through their curiosity and frenzied obsession, fixed the circuitry of the bomb, detonating it despite Kwassass's attempts to stop them. The Huragok completed the detonation timer's circuit, which promptly resulted in its activation. The resulting explosion occurred between a Covenant outpost planet Joyous Exultationand its moon, Malhiem, scorching half of the planet and shattering the moon. The resulting winds on Joyous Exultation flattened cities and spawned tidal waves. Radiation flooded the planet and killed everything living on it, penetrating the surface of the planet to its core. Every ship within the NOVA Bomb's range, save for those on the opposite side of the planet, boiled and vaporized in an instant. It is unknown what the Covenant did with the planet, but it is no longer capable of supporting life.[2]The NOVA Bomb explosion completely destroyed three-fifths of the fleet that was there, totaling over 300 ships. Eighteen Destroyers, two Cruisers, one Carrier and the Flagship Incorruptible escaped the NOVA Bomb explosion due to a Slipspace jump en masse just seconds prior to the explosion. Other ships arrived to reinforce theIncorruptible arrived from Joyous Exultation, suggesting that they escaped the bomb's detonation as a result of being positioned on the opposite side of the planet. The novel describes the explosion as though "a small star erupted between Joyous Exultation and its moon."

This is a nova bomb nicknamed planet killer.. designed to destroy fleets.... these are onboard the infinity... there is a major chance the infinity could total the entire fleet... this wasnt just a one sided battle its fairly close
