Re: Data for new Poll

The ship from Buck Rogers is Draconia, no n on the end. Don't forget Discovery and Leonov from 2001 and 2010.

That's the USS Enterprise out then!
Haven't we only had one animated/cartoon ship mentioned so far the Planet Express Ship. After all do we class the Gerry Anderson shows as animated/cartoon. Well they certainly are not animated and whilst they are aimed at children they're not really cartoons.

But I take it what the OP means is live action TV/Film only.

Re: Data for new Poll

For the Enterprise don't you need multiple TOS/TOS Film/TNG/TNG Film. Same for V as we have the original V and the modern version of V, same for the Battlestars of BSG speaking of which don't forget the Cylon Basestars. And from SW you also have numerous Star Destroyers to choose from. It might be an idea given the depth of Sci-Fi starships to split it off into several polls i.e. one for SW, several for ST (i.e. one for hero ships, one for non-hero federation ships, one for non-federation ships). One for other Sci-Fi ships and at the end the top 2 or so from each go into a final poll

But aside from the ones mentioned above

Klingon Bird of Prey (Br'el and Kovort Class)
Romulan Bird of Prey
D'Deridax Class Warbird
Romulan Warbird from Nem (cant remember the class name)
Klingon D7 Cruiser
Klingon Vor'cha Class
Cardassian Galor Class
Cardassian Hediki Class
UFP Excelsior Class
UFP Miranda Class
etc...

Definitely seconding Moya, Excelsior-class, and Miranda-class.

Damn. I'm still throwing the SCV Normandy in there anyway, because... Normandy, fuck yeah!

I don't think Serenity will be in the poll. She has no weapons and no shields.

I thought Thunderbirds was a cartoon? Maybe there are two different Thunderbirds?

And we have the only ship liable to go head to head with Enterprise.

But I'm voting for OS Battlestar Galactica.
What's with all the votes for Firefly? Captain Reynolds may be a match for Kirk, but his ship certainly isn't.

So far the most powerful ship I've seen in the lists is Andromeda. In fact, I've tried to think of any single ship in all of sci fi that could take on Andromeda and win. Any other opinions?

This eliminates any ship created by computer graphics technology.

The TARDIS, natch. I love Rommie, but Sexy's got her number.

And wait, I thought you were asking for favorite ship, not "who could win in a fight." In terms of popularity Serenity is certainly top 10.

I wouldn't have thought so. It's still shot live action on sets, whether they're puppets or humans. They're just smaller sets. And the spaceships were done with model shots in exactly the same way regardless. (And it's all a grey area, isn't it? All these modern shows with CGI effects, you could argue that the spaceships are cartoons, even if the character scenes around them are live action.)

I omitted the Paradox from Lavender Castle, which was a stop motion animation - even though it's one of the most brilliant spaceship designs ever.
