Capt Worley PE

What was your favorite fictional spacecraft?

Although I loved Star Trek and Lost in Space, I always liked the Eagles on Space 1999. They seemed to me the most realistic designs, especially given NASA's propensity for modular construction in that era.

Millenium Falcon...the hod-rodded muscle car in a galaxy far, far away.

...or Eagle 5. ;)

X-wing or the ship from Flight of the Navigator when it would transform into "time travel" mode. ;)

There's only one man who would dare give me the raspberry: Lone Star!

The Death Star, only because I think it would be cool to build your own planet. I think I would make it a bit harder to destroy though.

All right, look-you're a roofer, and some juicy government contract comes your way; you got the wife and kids and the two-story in suburbia - this is a government contract, which means all sorts of benefits. All of a sudden these left-wing militants blast you with lasers and wipe out everyone within a three-mile radius. You didn't ask for that. You have no personal politics. You're just trying to scrape out a living.

I made a reference about this movie around some people in their early 20s and got blank stares. I felt really old. I compared the Cloud Gate (The Bean) sculpture in Chicago to this ship.

And I have to go with the ST:NG Enterprise.

Dark Knight    809

From Voyage to The Bottom of The Sea...The Aerosub just because a vehicle that can fly and work as a submarine has to kick ass.

Sorry...You said spacecraft so the Millennium Falcon has my vote too.

Millennium Falcon from movies, guy-king (spelling?) from the 80's cartoon. Guy king could kick the sh!t out of the ship from star blazers.

Oh the memories

I liked the ship in DarkStar, too. Good dark humor movie.

Flight of the Navigator was an awesome, and underrated, film.

Moebius has a good model of that (along with other Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and Lost in Space stuff).

As I mentioned above, I still thought the ship looked cooler when it was in "turbo" or "time travel" mode. "Compliance!" ;)

The only unfortunate aspect of that movie is Ms. Horseface.

She was just a pony back then.
