Favorite Ship Tournament: Round 1 - Sovereign vs NX-class

Hello everyone, since there's been a lot of "favorite ships" threads, I decided to do this all out and have a voting tournament. This will be a single elimination bracket and conveniently there are 8 classes of Starfleet vessels used by the main cast members.

The classes included will be NX-class, Constitution, Constitution(refit), Constitution(alternate), Galaxy, Soverign, Defiant, and Intrepid.

The tournament bracket can be found here: http://challonge.com/STShipclass

For fairness, the brackets have been randomized. Thus we're starting out with the Sovereign vs the NX-class.

vs

Remember, this is just personal preference and not who you think would win in a fight or is better at any task. Just the ship you like the most, even if it's for those reasons. I'm going to keep the round 1 polls open for one day before moving on. So vote early and feel free to discuss!

Socerign Class, though the suggested modified NX Class with a secondary hull section looked good.

And it looks like the Sovereign-class jumps out to an early, commanding lead.

Went for the sovvy

Just a better design imo and the NX was too weak for my tastes.

I quite like the low-tech feeling of the NX-class.






A bonus point for the NX if Hoshi is on board.
