Best spaceship Crash

I happen to be going through the channels last night and I came across PITCH BLACK. I liked this movie when it came out, and it held up...but the best part was that crash scene at the start..it looked real...best SCI-space crash..IMO..

DS9, when Sisko and crew crash in the Jem Hadar ship, the shot of the ship descending was great.

Admiral Piett's ship tumbling down into the Death Star (and the A-Wing that brought it down.)

The last moments of the Pegasus.

Pitch Black is hard to beat in this aspect... While other shows/movies may show nice external shots of crashes, none of them gives you that feeling of "being there" as Pitch Black does in its opening scene.

Voyager in "Timeless", Ent D in "Generations" and Serenity. Pretty cool.

Re: Best spaceship Crash

Pitch Black is definitely the most visceral. I would also mention the Pegasus' suicide ram in BSG and the Invisible Hand crashing in Revenge of the Sith.

Though normally a ship hitting a planetary surface at full impulse would be scatter across a very large area (and there's before the warp core breached).

Spaceship crash: original Planet of the Apes. On a large movie screen it was quite disorienting.

Airplane crash: Cast Away. Scared the hell out of me, it was so real.

The Enterprise-D in Generations, and the Scorpio from Blake's 7 pretty good when you consider it was a low budget 70's space show.

I loved it when the Super Star Destroyer crashed into the Death Star in ROTJ.

Loved it when I was a kid, love it now.

Ooof, yeah, good call. That was an absolutely brilliantly done scene - by far the best plane crash ever committed to film.

It was absolutely terrifying - made more so by the fact that you only saw it happen from the inside. Helluva sequence.
