For all who haven't seen this.

Evolution of the Enterprise



This video can be found on the dvd Star Trek Evolutions. It's apart of the 2009 release of the TNG movie boxset.

Galaxy class for me, but TMP refit Constitution class is a close, close second.

Great video!!! I like all the Enterprise ships. I also love the Enterprise-C concept by Andrew Probert.

For me it would be.
1. Ent-D
2. Ent-E
3. Ent-C (Andrew Probert concept)
4. Ent-A
5. NX-01
6. Ent-C (Tng)
7. Ent-B
8. Ent (Original series)
9. Ent (Abrams)

Danube-Class Runabout. Nice and compact, easy to park. Probably gets good Light Years per Antimatter.

Sovereign Class has a certain elegance yet toughness that I like. I'll go with that.

Re: Which ship if you were captain?

Hmm... from canon? Galaxy, easily. Best-looking, well-rounded, interesting missions.

I want to say Akira, too, but... we really don't know anything about that damned class. But, if we go with the interpretation that makes it a combat-focused cruiser, not necessarily to the extent of the Defiant but more so than most ships its size (so it could still engage in some exploration, but would always be expected to be ready to respond to a tactical situation), then I'd be up for that, as well.

And speaking of non-canon things: if we are including entirely fan-made ships, this would be one of my top choices as well. I absolutely love the design, and back when I had my own ideas for Trek fics, I saw this and immediately envisioned it as a cutting-edge "light explorer" (i.e. more or less what Voyager seemed to be) launched in the late 24th century, which could also serve as a new tech testbed.

I'd convert one of the mammoth cargo bays of my Vengeance-class Dreadnought to a huge jungle-like arboretum which I would fill with lions.

And a pool. With sharks. With frickin' laser beams.

Re: Which ship if you were captain?

Defiant would be my first choice. What's not to like? It has ablative armor, loaded quantum torpedoes and ready to take on the galaxy. And, if I decide to go rogue, who could stop me?

My second, non-canon, choice would be this baby... for many of the same reasons. Thanks, Saito S, for sharing this one.

The Galaxy Class, all the way! It's so powerful and elegant ... it makes a statement! I'm all about the prestige.
