    To be honest, if I am not mistaken, if you are talking about the D'deridex classWarbird then isn't it's manoeuvrability one of it's biggest weaknesses or am I thinking of another ship?

    For me, it has to be the Mogai Class Warbird. To me, they are just the sexiest ships in the Universe. :drool:

    I love all the Romulan Warbirds. I just love them. You could be right about the maneuverability - I don't remember that and Memory Alpha doesn't mention it, but as I mentioned...I'm not so good at the tech-talk. When it comes to choosing ships, I'm shallow. ;)

    The Galaxy Class, she is one fine lady.

    USS Valley Forge. Salvaged, done up, and renamed USS Bones (like with Yorktown to E-A).

    It seems to me too many answering this question are limiting themselves to Federation ships only

    From all the shows and all the movies for me it comes down to a choice between the Voth city-ship or the First Federation ship "The Fesarius"

    But the most impressive ever shown is still the Dyson sphere from "Relics"
    which is a world but also a ship.

    The USS Bellephoron! (Intrepid Class). A ship with no real reputation (I'd give it one). Intrepid class ships are small enough to get to know your crew and bond well as a unit but large enough to kick ass and be comfortable at the same time (no Defiant crampness - can't stand that :D). Second choice would be the Ent-D because it is massive and, again, I'd like to be able to chillax a bit and the ship is certainly large enough for that :) Plus you get to feel important being in command of the largest ship in the fleet.

    Now that would be an impressive ship to have.

    The best thing about that was the bridge set from V. It's the best one I've seen before or since. And I was disapointed when they didn't reuse it for VI.

    Now for starship I'd go with the Enterprise-D. Combine that with the A's bridge from V, and you have the best ship out there.

    I'm thinking the Excelsior. It's got the refit-era aesthetics that I love, only bigger and badder. TOS uniforms would be mandatory however :)

    I'll take the crazy whale-humping probe from The Voyage Home...

    kidding.

    I used to be obsessed with the Nebula-class ships from TNG. I used to kitbash them from Galaxy class kits and Miranda-class kits... occasionally with some DS9 Runabout mixed in. Ah, those were the days.

    I really do enjoy the XI Enterprise... both in size and scale. Beautiful ship. Makes a great desktop background.

    Also, I like the Ambassador class too, very good design... I've never been a big fan of anything Klingon, Romulan or really anything else... The original Ferengi ships were cool (before they became the circus clowns of the galaxy).

    I really like the design of the Intrepid class, or the Valdore warbird (despite my general dislike of both Voyager and Nemesis).

    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. :bolian:

    That would be my dream ship. :drool:

    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.

    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.

    I'd go for one of the valdore class romulan ships from nemisis myself or maybe the lakota

    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.
