Not sure if this has been done though sounds like quite a cool idea. Mainly aimed at the sci-fi fans out there; Post the starship you would command/own/etc. if you could.

Not really sure about tagging etc. Sorry :S

Here's mine:

The Federation Time Ship Relativity, Well's Class

Suitable for travel to the domain of the dark space-lord Xenu, and casting souls into the volcanos, to be detonated with atomic bombs...

You can't make this up. Someone already did.

Too many people needed to run it. I'd rather have something I can take care alone or with a couple of friends. And from what I've seen, the damn thing is one Borg attachment away from doing Time Travel.

The Prometheus Class starship. It's three ships for the price of one!


Planet Express Ship, of course...

SR-71 Blackbird

Some of your guys ships look cool, but I don't want anything that doesn't have a holodeck and food replicators. :D

Damn, I found this thread too late to claim any of the good ones. Soooo...I'll just clunk you all over the head and take your ships somewhere far far away and make my own armada. :cool:

No one likes the Phoenix from Battle of the Planets?

http://img231.imageshack.us/img231/8198/phoenixhy0.jpg

Oh god help me. I'm old enough to remember that show as: G-Force!
What on Earth was up with that Cheops character, was he seriously mentally impaired/challenged (ie retarded)???!!

My vote .... Star Blazers (the show ran for 2yrs; watched it when i was 7, long before Macross/Robotech debuted (which I still think the majority of that series rocks).

Searching for a distant star,
heading off to Iscandar,
Leaving all we left behind,
who knows what dangers we'll find,
We must be strong & brave,
Our home we got to save,
If we don't in just 1 year,
Mother Earth will dis-appear!
Call out the fire & smoke,
we will never give up hope,
If we can win the Earth will survive,
we'll keep peace alive with our, Star Blazers!

Strange that last lyric.

http://otal.umd.edu/~mgk/blog/yamato.jpg

If any of you recall the cartoons of the late 70's early '80's era would recognize the common artistic drawings of characters:
Jason from G-Force, Grandizer, etc all had basically the same face and hair-do.

the common theme of the cannon in the front nose of the ship...
http://darkstar_013310.tripod.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/edfironduke.jpg

There was a French-Canadian show VERY similar to this but I cannot recall its name - the commander or main character was a pirate? Anyone know?

oh and the other common theme of the captain of the ships always having high collars and beards and a deep voice (even Robotech had this).
http://www.leehenry.com/sblazer/img/6.jpg

Then again my other choice was the Last Starfighter ... with Death Blossom installed! That was the shiznit!

http://www.igorstshirts.com/blog/conceptships/gunstar_concept_ship.jpg


Actually scratch ALL the above!

I'll take Gold Boa Goldman's YF-21 from Macross Plus!
that movie mini-series incidentally had a very wicked soundtrack! I actually liked this show better than the Zentreadi, Robotech Masters, and Invid shows before it.

I present the YF-21 with Vector Engine Thrusters (introduced 3yrs before the FA-21 fighter with 2 vector engines; a common theme for Macross mecha vs USA air-force technology).

They did that to make his new lines fit with the animation. The original was a far more adult cartoon in Japanese called Gatchaman, but they rewrote the scripts for the American and British markets. Gatchaman was all set on Earth, which is why all the planets the Phoenix visited in BoTP/G-Force looked alike :)

Oh, and those bits with the R2D2 type robot were added later, hence the occasional bit of really crappy animation.

I remember that; that actually made the traditional and boring century's old "bizarre love triangle" (shakespeare) writing so much better! Self sacrifice to save the one's he loved and renewed a friendship!

God help us if the X-9 ever gets built. Also remember that movie Stealth (Jessica Biel, Jamie Foxx, & Josh Lucas), had a VERY similar ghost ship that had artificial intelligence?!! That was 2005, Macross Plus 1994!

Still we cannot fly the X-9 so YF-21 is still my vote ;)

The YF-21 required heavy concentration on the job (so much that only Gold could pilot the dam thing). Also, remember it's a mind driven plane, and how many of those do we see?

However, an UAV like the X-9 is very possible. Main reason is, we already have UAVs flying all over the world in the US Air Force. True they are reconnoissance probes, but we are getting there.

I am going with the OP...USS Relativity is cool...or a bigger version of the USS Defiant. I love how they are more "together" than the standard ST designs...I always thought it would be a giant pain trying to get from one corner of some nacelle out on a pylon to the opposite side of the ship.

Actually Grendizer is a totally separate show (but from same creator and is in the same universe so it's sorta a sequel). But yes, the chair spinning around a few extra times for no apparent reason was always amusing to me. Not old enough to have grown up with those shows but am a bit of a classic anime nerd.

I can't find a better pic but Muller's new ship, the "Parcival", from LOGH was pretty cool...
