The first Imperial Star Destroyer, surely one of the best openings to any movie.

The Imperial Star Destroyer does it for me. There used to be an amazing site called the SWMA (Star Wars Modelling Alliance), where you could download 3D models for all Star Wars ships, props etc. Sadly it got closed down...

Well, technically the Incom T-47 Snowspeeder isn't a spaceship, it's a repulsor craft. Nonetheless, it kicks ass  big grin

I agree, I remember seeing it in the cinema in '77 and it was amazing when it appeared, I'd never seen anything like it on film before.

TIE Defender, winner of the Overkill Award.

But off that list, I'll take the Falcon.  Fast, tough, and with two turrents I could set to autofire.

The YT-2000 I quite like since it can too do two turret autofire plus has ion cannons that makes any oposing craft "do-able" - but apart from that it has the flight characteristics of a brick.

Bossk the bounty hunter's ship, the Hound's Tooth. That ship had an artificial intelligence brain like no other. IG-88's IG-2000 was pretty cool, too.

I've gotta go with the Imperial Star Destroyer as well.  I mean, when it first appeared it just kept going, and you thought it was never going to stop.  I guess that was the first movie I saw in theaters that made me think that the ship wasn't just a model, but actually had size and mass, and a wonderful amount of detail. 

Hard to believe Star Wars only cost like 10 million dollars back then, and that was a lot of money.

I love the Millenium Falcon, it's a character in itself. But I hate having other people man the turrets. And the Star Destoyers are great, but you can't dogfight with them. I vote X-wing.

Too bad a whole lot of girls don't read this thread  wink

Me? Im a Millenium Falcon man, simply because you can always fix whatevers broken by thumping the control panels mindlessly. But seriously, the Millenium Falcon isn't complete with a mwrroroooaaaar'ing chewy. If C3P0 came as standard, I'd eject him into space then use some proton torpedos on him. (yes, I played X-Wing, and Tie Fighter back in the day)  laff

The problem with the BTL-A4 Y-Wing is that if it misses it's first pass it's had it unless in the hands of an extremely good pilot. Even a simple TIE/Ln could destroy it one on one, if the TIE doesn't go after it head on to begin with that is. Sure it's sturdy, but can't turn quickly and sure as hell can't get away quickly.  hmpf
I get annoyed in XWA just how quickly a squad of Y-Wings goes bye-bye against Imperial starships. They even seem to have trouble against Interdictor Cruisers.

Well, I still haven't give up hope to see some Victory-class Star Destroyers in Episode III.

Hope usually dies last...
