Well, to be fair I did have a couple of gadgets he probably didn't, like a teaspoon and an open mind.

Greatest Starships in Science Fiction

In my opinion these are the greatest Ships in Sci-Fi history.


1. The TARDIS, it's a blue police box that can travel anywhere in time and space, plus it's dimensionally transcendental. who wouldn't want one of these?(Doctor Who)

2. The Millennium Falcon, a highly modified CEC YT-1300 stock light freighter, piloted by Han Solo. In other words, not only the fastest hunk of junk in the Galaxy, but also the coolest! (Star Wars)

3. Serenity. Serenity is a 03-K64 Firefly-class mid-bulk cargo transport, serving as a home, transportation, and base of operations for Captain Malcolm Reynolds and his crew. I love this ship, I think the best word to describe it is character. (Firefly/Serenity)

4. Slave I. I have no clue why I love this ship, I just do, It maybe due to it's owners: Jango Fett & Boba Fett. (Star Wars)

5. Liberator, I loved Blake's 7 as a kid, and this ship design has always stuck in my mind. (Blake's 7)

6. Tantive IV, The Rebel Blockade Runner was the first starship I ever saw on screen as a child, this will always have a great sentimental hold on me (Star Wars)

7. Scimitar, Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator, this may have only been on screen for a short few seconds, but I loved the clear foreshadowing of the design, and the feeling of darkside menace that it instilled. (Star Wars)

8. Klingon Bird-of-Prey. This is the only Star Trek craft to make it onto my favourites, as most are bland and uninteresting. (Star Trek)

9. J-type 327 Nubian royal starship. I have no other reason to love this ship, other than the fact that it is sleek and chrome, which would make it virtually invisible in space, and that it is based on the real worlds greatest ever aircraft designs, the Lockheed SR-71 "Blackbird" (Star Wars)

10. The White Star. Sleek and organic, also proves why in my opinion why Babylon 5 will always be superior science fiction to Star Trek. (Babylon 5).

I haven't included any Starfighters in this list, i'm saving them for another day.

Quote of the Week VI.

There comes a time when you look in the mirror and realise that what you see is all that you will ever be. Then you accept it, or you kill yourself. Or you stop looking in mirrors ~ Londo Mollari

Quote of the Week V.

War is a vile thing, and it brings out the worst in beings. But it also brings out their best- courage, sacrifice, resourcefulness, tenacity, comradeship, genius, even humour. Would that we could achieve that enlightened state without shedding blood first ~ Mentor Peet Sieben, Jal Shay philosopher

Quote of the Week IV.

Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth--even more than ruin--even more than death.....Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into to pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man ~ Bertrand Russell

Quote of the Week II.

Human Beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. ~ Douglas Adams

Quote of the Week I.

Religion easily has the best bullshit story of all time. Think about it. Religion has convinced people that there's an invisible man... living in the sky. Who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn't want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer, and burn, and scream, until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you. He loves you and he needs money. ~ George Carlin
