Nixorbo is right. If this thread is about the shiniest spaceships, then those crazy Naboo ships win. They are seriously shiny.

If "shiniest" is some new code word for "coolest" then I'll go with the Millenium Falcon. Great look, great character. Probably the most perfect spaceship in any scifi movie ever.

The Death Star neither shines nor looks cool. It's a ball, people. Geez, Luke Skywalker even confused it for a small moon. Cool ships aren't supposed to look like moons.

I think the coolness stems from the fact that it's just so freakin' powerful.

Fishy: "Cool ships aren't supposed to look like moons."
I concur. The Death Star's quite intimidating and all, just because it's f'n huge, but not particurlarly interesting to look at.

Not exactly a spaceship, but close enough; I loved the little fighters from Last Exile (vanships, they were called)

Frisco, I understand the "powerful" thing...but still. Can't we at least go with Death Star II? At least it had that choppy unfinished look that made it more interesting to look at.

As I look through this thread, I'm amazed at how cool Star Wars ships(original trilogy in particular, although the prequels had some cool designs here and there) look compared to every other show/movie out there. All of the TIEs, the different classes of Star Destroyers, X-wings/Y-Wings(I'll admit the B-wings are a bit of a stretch), Slave I. They all look great, and look like they would be fun to fly.

Compare that to Moya from Farscape(one of my favorite shows ever). Talk about boring!

CA: The nice korean guy who ran my favorite import shop in Orlando recommended it back when it was first being released in the US, so I was buying them as they were released. One of the best anime series ever, and along with Tyler one of the very few with a wholely satisfying ending.

DogDoo8: But did you like them enough to assemble the paper cutout models included with the first two DVDs? I did. They turned out quite well, too, but then they got crushed in a move due to lazy packing    frown

no he is not..

-Imperator class Destroyer:



No matter its 31 year old design.. no matter how many times we see it.. its still the star destroyer of excellence the ship that doesnt age, allways seem powerfull from any angle ..its so good that even the New Republic equiped its fleets with as many of them as possible..

2-Hyperion class Cruiser
 

I love this ship.. naval lines merged with space .. batteries .. it seem so pretty and yet functional..

3-BattleStar Pegasus
 

Actually i strugled in this one between Galactica and Pegasus.. both are seriously cool ships.. seem reliable, powerfull, and are base to squadrons of fighters.. the Galactica has that nostalgic touch and more streamlines..but in the End the Pegasus looks win by a little.. A really shame they took her out...

4-Muraigne class cruiser


Dont know if anyone renember those.. they were my introduction to mighty star cruisers

5-Soyuz class


for some reason i just love this design..  normal trek ships look a bit silly but this one looked more... sense ..more packed..

I have tried to keep down one ship "per universe" so those are the designs i left out to avoid 2 in same unverse:

-Warlock class Destroyer:


-BattleStar Galactica


Special mentions:

-Red Dwarf
-P.E Ship (Wich i have for XWA Frisco )
-USS Discovery
-CCP Leonov

I have it in my HD  big grin

Some years ago i decided to make it.. and i started modding the ATR Assault Transport..
i failed misserably but then came Leon Richter "TK-421" to the rescue and he modeled the ship and used (and corrected) my textures..
its only 96kb and has no cockpit.. but you have an auto laser turret (think of it like having Fry in it and ordering him to fire) and ion cannons (its a transport ship so it must be able to dissable and board other things)

I just posted spaceships because the topic tittle..but if i go to fighters...

1- X-Wing



Again, a 31 years old design that simply doesnt became obsolete and doesnt age, apart from its ficticious stats, its not the fastest, not the agiler, not the more powerfull not the more shielded.. but its one of the best balanced

2- Viper mk.2



I allready knew the old colonial Viper and it was ok.. cool.. but the mk.2 got me.. it was the perfect "refit" of the original Viper design.. its both classical and modern at same time

3- Thunderbolt StarFury



Also the Starfury design was cool but it lacked something.. and the Thunderbolt filled in..

4- VF-1 Valkyrie



I onle saw Macross Zero and Macros "do you believe in love" or something.. wich was a mistake to do in that order i suposse.. but the VF-1 still gets me.. one of my all time favs, the Tomcat, converted into space fighter..


And this is not a starfighter but a sci-fi fighter but still i like it a lot:



In fact, if someone choosed to do a remake , like Galactica in todays days, this would be one design i would left unchanged

Would you mind sending me the file or something? I must have it!

The sexiest ships in any galaxy:

#5: The Reman Warbird Scimitar(ST). Over 50 disruptor cannons, 27 Torpedo launchers, and the ability to annihilate an entire species. Not to mention it looks so fucking badass. Definitely the best part of the whole Star Trek Nemesis movie:


#4: Cylon Basestar(BSG Reimagined). One of the most creative-looking designs. Verrrry cool:


#3: Dadeleus-Class(SG). Awesome looking ship, and it doesn't look TOO futuristic, by keeping its military feel. Almost looks like spaceborn aircraft carrier. Much better than the old Prometheus-Class:


#2: The Battlestar Pegasus(BSG Reimagined). Possibly the most intimidating-looking battleship in Sci-fi. Looks like a giant metal shark. With missiles. And a Viper factory. And I dare anyone to think of a cooler ship being destroyed. TWOFER!!!


#1: Constitution-Class Refit(ST). Old reliable. I dunno about alot of purist Trekkies, but I love the refit of the Enterprise much better than the original series design. Long live the NCC-1701!


Honorable mentions:

The Millenium Falcon(SW):


Klingon Bird of Prey(ST):

Not the best in history, but easily the most hilariously powerful:


It can destroy whole squadrons of capitol space creatures (each of which is roughly the size of an Imperial star destroyer) with a single sweeping beam from it's forehead unit.  It's apparently powered by the screams of 15-year old girls.

In fact lots of good shit here, though CA, for someone who appreciates Last Exile, I'm disappointed with the ID4 ships; same problem as death stars, very intimidating but not very cool.

Not the coolest ship but a nice classic design is the Soyokaze from ICT...
