Tell me, what is your favorite spacecraft design be it real or fictional?

It should come of no surprise which one mine is ^_^

My nostalgia favourites are the Anastasia, and Fireball XL5. Ranking things from the most recent fifty years will take more thought.

She may have faulty wiring, a damaged hyperdrive, and be infested with rats, but she was the first ship I had the pleasure of flying.

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

In my headcanon Yui sheds all the the Eva armor and invasive implants and such, and regenerates into a proper human form- she already grows hair, yes?

But that would imply removing the entry plug, so one could no longer board her. Ach.

Ah, Moya...there's some nostalgia.

I have a few in mind. Such as this beauty, which was a good home while I flew many a sortie against the Kilrathi:

Also nice to see a good, solid ship for an Outlaw:

Or, on occasion, a space cowboy:

All too fiddly; I go for the virtues of simplicity and clean design:

The Astro Megaship. The underside "intakes" transform into fists... OF JUSTICE!

Admittedly, the Circular design with the protruding bridge reminds me of another favorite ship:
