Re: What ship would you choose?

I'd have to go with the Enterprise E or D. Probably the E

If it was the D it would have to be the version from Star Trek Generations. I liked the stations down the sides of the bridge. The original version of D's bridge just didn't seem like it had enough computer stations. The other ships all had computers everywhere lol. I liked the lighting better too.

And of course whichever ship I had would be equipped with a Delta Flyer...

And I'd have to throw some non-canon in there and both the Delta Flyer and my ship would be retro-fitted with the quantum slipstream drive the USS Aventine has.

I'd start at Earth in the Alpha Quadrant... and use my slipstream drive to go back and forth to other quadrants.

That would be my dream ship.

Galaxy-Class. Nice, big internal crew spaces - botanical gardens, promenade - could go for a dip in the cetecean sections - holodecks. Big, powerful, more than enough supplies. And comfy.

Re: What ship would you choose?

it depends on the number of crewmembers....


if I was a Captain of a large starship with a full crew....then probably a Sovereign Class Federation starship. You can go anywhere at anytime and won't catch grief from anyone with a brain cell. Explore new worlds...dominate in combat....the Sov. Class can do it all.


If I could pick my 10 best friends and explore the galaxy, I'd take the Defiant. We can cloak, we can fight, we can get in and out of systems as quick as any other ship out there. The Defiant is essentially a Starfleet version of a BoP on steroids.

Re: What ship would you choose?

Ok, as I've had time to think about this thread a bit more, and I'm liking the USS Voyager more and more...so, I'm going to change my choice and go with the USS Voyager.

I'll second this. I love the design of the Amabassador class.

Re: What ship would you choose?

I almost forgot this one.

U.S.S. Defiance
NCC 75216
DEFIANCE-CLASS
(Intrepid-Class - Dominion War Refit)
http://i283.photobucket.com/albums/k...shellsgate.jpg
  • Propulsion: Q.S.S. Enabled.
  • Cruise Speed: Warp 9.7
  • Defensive / Offensive Systems:
    Phased Mass Holographic Masking System.
    High Yield "Phaser Lance" (* in lieu of aerowing captain's yacht.)
    Standard Phasers / Torpedoes.
    Tricobalt Missile Cache.
    "Condition: Blue" Vertical Take-Off And Landing
    Multi-Layered Auto-Rotating Shields.
  • Auxiliary Vehicles:
    2 - Type 15 (Interceptor-Class) Shuttlecraft.
    1 - Workbee


The expected Diplomatic capacity, standard quarters and science labs of the standard Intrepid-Class have been removed in favor of "assault transport" options such as an entire deck dedicated to The Starfleet Marines' requirements.

"The Doghouse":
  • 'Tactical' Holosuite (a.k.a. 'Mark 2' Stellar Cartography),
  • Infirmary,
  • Transporter Room
  • Ordinance Locker,
  • (Defiant-Class) bunk-style quarters, et al.
  • Common Room / Replimat


The Defiance has been permanently assigned to protecting The Guardian of Forever & "Gateway Station" in orbit.

Only 3 ships of this type have been converted from their original Intrepid-Class layout since their completion at Utopia Planetia (circa 2377).

The Defiance-Class has significantly fewer crew and no such options as Kes' "Horticultural Lab".

Instead, the Defiance-Class has a dormant / redundant secondary warp core (slightly higher rated type/class than a Danube-Class runabout,) set-up to draw power from the dorsal third nacelle.

Dedicated deuterium/anti-matter storage tanks that also draw their power from interacting directly with the third nacelle. A system designed to kick-in (as necessary) to power shields, life-support & other auxiliary / emergency back-up systems, (or the phaser lance when required) so they don't suck essential power from the main core, under normal circumstances.

Which, of course, all provides one HELL of an unforgettable wake-up call during "Self-Destruct".

She's a rottweiller on steroids, specifically designed to face-down anyone from The Klingons, Krenim, and The Romulans, straight through to The Borg.

Re: What ship would you choose?

I'd have to go for the Excelsior class, pre-refit. Then the Sovereign class, Defiant class and Steamrunner class in that order.

Re: What ship would you choose?

I really love any of the Enterprise, except for maybe the NX (It just didn't seem like an Enterprise for me) and the B (Never really enjoyed the Excelsior pasted the first one that much either).

I love the C, that was great. But I'd either have to go with the E, which has always been one of my favorites, or the nuEnterprise: which, for some one from my generation, is just magnificent and beautiful.

Oh and, give the Narada some visbil turbo lifts or stairs and add railings to the cat walk as well and I'd sure like to captain her.

Re: What ship would you choose?

The Galaxy is my favorite ship, but I equate her to a huge lumbering truck. Great in a battle or for security, sure, but sometimes I don't want that city in space.

I would go with a Defiant or a Sabre for speedy sports-car type ships. They always looked fun to pilot.

For grace and ease of travel, perhaps an Excelsior or the Intrepid.
