Re: What ship would you choose?

Keldon-class I believe. The main body is that of a Galor-class, but I might be completly wrong. I'm starving and my brain is calling it a quit as long as I don't eat something

Update: it appears I could be really right.

I should have been a bit more clear, sorry. You would have a full crew complement to command and go where you'd want to.
Oh! why didn't you say so? I would still pick the ships I picked earlyer, small crew means fewer lives I have to worry about. Than again if I could get a great interior decorater to make the inside look ''CLEANER'', I'd want the NARADA! now that thing looks like it can strike fear in to the hearts of it's enemies! BWA,HA,HA!

I was always left with the impression the Galaxy Class ships were flawed and weak in combat.

Why would the Borg lie?

"Captain Jean-Luc Picard, you lead
the strongest ship of the
Federation Starfleet. You speak
for your people."

-BOBW Part I

The Ent-D always aquitted itself in well in combat. Those K'vort class BOP in Yesterday's Enterprise were huge and had a 3:1 advantage. Also Riker boasts of the recent "pasting" the Klingons recieved at Archer IV. The only firefight I will not accept is one in Rascals. That was complete crap.


The Galaxies were kicking serious ass in the Dominion war.
The Titanic was also supposed to be the strongest of the fleet for the White Star line company too if I remember correctly.

Don't remember Rascals but what was wrong with that episode ?

I don't have any memory of the Galaxy kicking tail. To me its a ship designed to explore and carry alot of civilians/family. I just can't see a design of that type being a badasss in combat.

As for the Dominion war what examples do you know that would validate it kicking butt ? All I know of is the few seconds of screen time on TV during DS9.

That was a case of writers fiat, later Cardassian ships were more powerful.



they did a good job blasting the Jem'hadar and the Breen. Not to mention the Klingons.

pfft the Klingons stomped all over the Cardassians!

the Cardassians have trouble controlling their bowels at the mere mention of a Klingon battlecruiser.

^. Really? I think that the Klingons were too busy chasing after sensor ghost, holograms and generally getting outwitted to cause any bowel loosening. (not that the Cardassians were actually scared by the Klingons)

three words: surprise attack and cloaks. That's how the Klingons won the war (and helped to start the Dominion war)
