Cool Non-Canon Star Wars Ships

There's something about the Lancer Class frigate that I like. I first saw it here and thought it looked nothing like the other Imperial ships seen in the movies. It's a generic spaceship design that can fit comfortably in the Baylon 5, Starship Troopers, or Alien universes (or any number of others) but credit where it's due, it's stuck with me over the years.

What are some of your favorites?

Re: Cool Non-Canon Star Wars Ships

I'm not sure if this is non-canon, but I always liked the Interdictor class of Imperial Star Destroyers. I suppose it's because the mission of those ships, to disrupt hyperspace travel, seemed to make a lot of sense for an interstellar war.

Re: Cool Non-Canon Star Wars Ships

^It is as long as we are talking about ships that have not appeared in the films.

For fighters I've always liked the E-Wing, it sounds like it is a superior ship to the X-Wing and always wished it would have displaced that fighter. Also don't mind the K-Wing for its almost over the top "I'm a awesome bomber" look.

Capital ships - Got to go with the Mon Cal cruisers, MC-80b, MC-90, Viscount. Also ships with a heavy Mon cal influence like the Republic Star Destroyer and the Scythe class battle cruiser.

I'm also seem to be in the minority for liking the designs from the Cracken's Threat Dossier. I like the design for the Majestic heavy cruiser, the Warrior gunship and the Defender class star destroyer. Also like the more normal look for that vessel that's appeared in the Starships of the Galaxy books.

I love the Eclipse Class Star Dreadnought, the Pellaeon Class Star Destroyer, and the Sovereign Class Star Dreadnought.

Re: Cool Non-Canon Star Wars Ships

I always liked the cloakshape fighter, and used one such vessel for my custom Jedi. It's easily modified, much like the Corellian designs, and that can make up for some of the potential weaknesses of the original design.
