Galaxy - luxurious, yes, but more importantly it feels like home to me because I grew up on TNG.

Andrew Probert's Ambassador Class or Enterprise-C.

It has the best design features of both worlds (i.e. Excelsior and Enterprise-D) and strikes me as the uncrowned queen of space.

Her sleek lines are so beautiful that if she wouldn't exist, it would be mandatory to invent her.

If I were in a spacedock lounge with fellow Starfleet officers and they'd ask me which ship I'm serving on just by looking at her would make me feel proud.

Alternate reality Constitution class. Although I'd need to remember to pack sunglasses. Shedloads of action and excitement guarenteed. After all, if you're out in space and exploring new worlds, and you need a holodeck to have any fun, you're doing it wrong.
Well, I'd expect long, boring, travel periods between interesting happenings. In which case it'd be me, Mila Kunis and Elisha Cuthbert in holodeck 2.

Galaxy class would be the comfiest with all the recreational possibilities it has.

But NX would have that on the frontier feeling.

Probert's concept design for the Ambassador class really is awesome and the image featuring it in the Ships of the Line 2012 calendar is one of the best in the series.

LOL!!!

Me, I'd go for the Sovereign. Love the design, but also just as comfy as the Galaxy but a bit more modern, uprated tech and no kids wandering the corridors. Don't get me wrong, I love kids. But they have no business on a starship.
My choice for the same reasons. The Galaxy is nice and comfortable, but all that Beige and kids wandering around would get to me eventually...

I wish they had come up with this deign for the Enterprise D back when TNG started. I like this design so much better.

Re: What class ship would you want to serve aboard?

I have always envisioned myself as a civilian freighter captain, like in ENT's "Fortunate Son." So I'd have to say, I'd prefer one of those Y-class ECS freighters.

I would have been just happy and content if they had actually used Mr. Probert's design for the Enterprise-C.

I mean, you can really tell that this beautiful lady's father was a Galaxy and her mother an Excelsior.

In comparison the Enterprise-C we saw on screen strikes me as an unhappy, orphaned little girl. She wants her dad to be a Galaxy but seems to be uncertain whether her mom could be the TOS or TMP Enterprise.

Agree. C looks too much like the lovechild of A and D. Should have had a lot more Excelsior components per the Probert design.

I agree as well. The Enterprise C we were shown is my least favorite of the bunch.

Galaxy class for me, although the Sovereign would be a close second.
