    Wasn't the millennium falcon in the background in First Contact? So would that count as a Star Trek ship? Or would the TOS Enterprise in the background of Battlestar Galactica count as a non star trek ship?

    Where was the TOS Enterprise in Battlestar Galactica?

    BTW you can see Voyager fly by the window in I think The Phantom Menace when they were on Coruscant.

    Enterprise and the TARDIS were in 1999 but Anderson spotted them and cut the shot. The TARDIS, an Eagle and Klingon are all in Red Dwarf.

    Same here I'm wondering what that bottom one is from.

    Also the rocket ship from "you only live twice" that's also one of my favourites

    I wish there was a vote for Talyn though. I mean that was a tough little ship and sacrificed itself for the greater good.

    Yeah Talyn was cool. I love the concept of living ships

    it's the Orbit Jet (replaced later by the identical Silver Moon) from early 50's tv show Rocky Jones: Space Ranger. The FX were the best of that time when it comes to sci-fi on tv, and frankly it's a shame that it's been forgotten. The model work and ship sets were easily the best of it's contemporaries and it was eventually cancelled due to how expensive it was. The Orbit Jet always seemed like a cozy ship to travel in.

    Nice choices. If only Thunderbird 2 had gone to space....

    May I also pick my next 3 or runner up list? There's just too much to choose from.
