List fails simply because of confusing short range fighters like the Hammerheads and Vader's TIE fighter with SHIPS

No Spaceball-One?

My favorite. Still kind of creeps me out looking at the thing...

Flash Gordon's space rocket
The Jupiter II
Dick Tracy's Space Coupe
Quark's United Galaxy Sanitation Patrol Cruiser
The Valley Forge from Silent Running
The Navigator's PeeWee Herman Spaceship

and the one that started it all:
Jules Verne's bullet space ship to the moon.
 
2012-06-22 01:19:45 AM  
Take off the moon, because it wasn't a ship, and add Moya.
The list still won't be perfect, but it will be better.

FirstNationalBastard: Well, a single Borg cube did a pretty good number in it.

Oh, and the Dominion destroyed it.


Nope.

teto85: No Space Battleship Yamato?


Seriously! WW2-era destroyer retrofitted for space flight? Main propulsion system is also a planet-busting gun? The Yamato is one of the single coolest things to ever appear in sci-fi.

Also, while the movie generally sucked, the ship from Flight of the Navigator really deserves a special prize. That thing defines flying in style. And it morphs!

The Millenuem Falcon is clearly the only ship worth mentioning, followed only by an X-wing and the Nostromo.

Suck it haters.

....and it has Pee Wee Herman's voice.

/I can't say that it sucked.
//Only because it came out when I was 7, and loved watching it on the Disney Channel.

rickycal78: Also, the Normandy SR-2 was better than the SR-1.


fark that noise, sure it had better armor and weaponry and a better IES stealth system, and leather seats, but they got rid of the SR-1's coolest feature, the thrusters on the SR-1 where much more mobile than on the SR-2 (they could be tucked under the fuselage rather than just slid along the wing)

Though I'd heard the name many times, that slideshow was my first sight of the Nostromo.

This is a real geek-fest (nerd-fest?), so I have no business being here. It's kind of like watching the Spartoi sort themselves out.
