What's wrong with the Naboo Starfighter? It was a BADASS fighter in both Rogue Squadrons.

As for me, only one name will stand the test of time as the most inspirational Starship in my life:

Ooh, another one....

Space: Above and Beyond was a show that I really liked which had a lot of potential. Did not age well, not very strong on the military culture, but it had some GREAT spacecraft.

Such as the SA-43 Endo/Exo Atmospheric Attack Jet (the Hammerhead):

And their homebase, the USS Saratoga:

Best ship in Rogue Squadron quite honestly. Almost as fast as an A-wing with shields worth a crap and an astromech. Lasers were fast hitting too.

Only problem was how narrow the laser cannons sat.

I like the naboo starfighter because it's very aesthetically pleasing. Compared to the harsh edges and dull greys of the Original trilogy's ships. The sports car inspired design is very pleasant.

Also my mom bought me the toy and the lego set for Christmas the year the movie came out. So I have a bit of nostalgiac attachment to it.

It was a tough choice between Yamato and Galactica, but my infatuation with WW II era ships won.


Didn't Anno design the current incarnation of the ship shown here?

Thunder Road from the movie Explorers

There's something wonderous about a cubbylike spaceship built with tvscreen windows, a trashcan, and other junk put together by three kids.

The Atlanteans may have been total screwups when it came to stuff like religion and politics, but damn did they know how to design a great starship.
