And going back to the OT, I would also go for a Romulan Warbird.
And you know that's my preference as well. I can't bandy tech-talk with you guys, but they're powerful, maneuverable and purty, and what more can you expect from a ship than that?

I'm also extremely fond of the D, of course. The E? Meh.
To be honest, if I am not mistaken, if you are talking about the D'deridex classWarbird then isn't it's manoeuvrability one of it's biggest weaknesses or am I thinking of another ship?

For me, it has to be the Mogai Class Warbird. To me, they are just the sexiest ships in the Universe.

I love all the Romulan Warbirds. I just love them. You could be right about the maneuverability - I don't remember that and Memory Alpha doesn't mention it, but as I mentioned...I'm not so good at the tech-talk. When it comes to choosing ships, I'm shallow.

USS Valley Forge. Salvaged, done up, and renamed USS Bones (like with Yorktown to E-A).

Re: What ship would you choose?

It seems to me too many answering this question are limiting themselves to Federation ships only

From all the shows and all the movies for me it comes down to a choice between the Voth city-ship or the First Federation ship "The Fesarius"

But the most impressive ever shown is still the Dyson sphere from "Relics"
which is a world but also a ship.

The USS Bellephoron! (Intrepid Class). A ship with no real reputation (I'd give it one). Intrepid class ships are small enough to get to know your crew and bond well as a unit but large enough to kick ass and be comfortable at the same time (no Defiant crampness - can't stand that ). Second choice would be the Ent-D because it is massive and, again, I'd like to be able to chillax a bit and the ship is certainly large enough for that Plus you get to feel important being in command of the largest ship in the fleet.

Now that would be an impressive ship to have.

It's hard to choose, but I like the Enterprise-A as seen in movies 5 & 6.
The best thing about that was the bridge set from V. It's the best one I've seen before or since. And I was disapointed when they didn't reuse it for VI.

Now for starship I'd go with the Enterprise-D. Combine that with the A's bridge from V, and you have the best ship out there.

Re: What ship would you choose?

I'm thinking the Excelsior. It's got the refit-era aesthetics that I love, only bigger and badder. TOS uniforms would be mandatory however

Re: What ship would you choose?

I'll take the crazy whale-humping probe from The Voyage Home...

kidding.

I used to be obsessed with the Nebula-class ships from TNG. I used to kitbash them from Galaxy class kits and Miranda-class kits... occasionally with some DS9 Runabout mixed in. Ah, those were the days.

I really do enjoy the XI Enterprise... both in size and scale. Beautiful ship. Makes a great desktop background.

Also, I like the Ambassador class too, very good design... I've never been a big fan of anything Klingon, Romulan or really anything else... The original Ferengi ships were cool (before they became the circus clowns of the galaxy).

I really like the design of the Intrepid class, or the Valdore warbird (despite my general dislike of both Voyager and Nemesis).
