I may have been the only to make this vote but...Nebula-class. I love the look of the ship. Seems like an edgier Galaxy-class.

The NX. I like jumpsuits and small crews.

From 'canon' Trek, circa the 24th century, the Galaxy class. No question. Looks a truly magnificent vessel to voyage space in, as (re)watching TNG series 3 is currently reminding me.

If not the Galaxy, whatever class of vessel succeeds it. No, not the ugly, grim warship type in First Contact, but a real exploration starship.

I think from Star Trek online the Odyssey class is the true replacement for the Galaxy, although not strictly "canon" it's an interesting design. I can't remember where I read it but I'm sure the Sovereign was meant to be the replacement for the Excelsior class.

Re: Which ship if you were captain?

Almost impossible for me to answer. I love so many of those designs, and small or large would depend on the type of missions I'd do... I can't decide !

Re: Which ship if you were captain?

The Galaxy class, with its varied sensor arrays, comfortable quarters, and beautiful design, is the ultimate starship of scientific exploration for me.
It's a close call, though, because I prefer the Constitution class bridge layout. Its hub-and-spoke design seems better for communicating information to the captain, especially from the science station.

Prometheus class because I'm a Voltron fan.

If not that the Abrams Enterprise, NX or Sovereign in that order.

Re: Which ship if you were captain?

I really like the Intrepid class. But for me, it would be a training ship, so I could still be a teacher, and have a relatively safe assignment. I want to come home and who are we kidding? I'm no James T. Kirk!

And not to mention it's impressive armaments.

Excelsior-class for me, i've always felt that class looks the most elegant. Plus I prefer the blue/green computer terminals of that era over the orange/yellow of the tng-era.

In a TNG context that would be Andrew Probert's Ambassador Class for me. It features the best elements of both worlds, i.e. Excelsior and Galaxy Class.

Other than that it's Kirk's television Enterprise. It's a truly timeless design. It looked outrageously futuristic back in the 1960's and still does so today.

Re: Which ship if you were captain?

I'd pick the Sovereign class. Because it has the best chance to get into and finish the battle. It's the best armed and defended. And has performance capabilities second to none. It has the resources to handle the largest range of mission profiles. And I'd like to see John Eaves' shuttlebay with all of the Argo-class shuttles and their mission packages. And most importantly; No Frakking Kids On My Ship!

The one with the smallest crew, yet a ready room and a bedroom big enough for all my stuff (not much, but it all needs to be displayed, donchaknow), so the Nova.
