    Anyone up for a bit of fun.
    We each select two ships we think are beautiful and say have 30 ships to choose from then vote off one each day until we have a winner?

    We can work out the details and see how it would go :)

    I'm up for that. Another way to do it is put them in randomized groups of 2 in a tournament bracket and vote which one we want to advance.

    Should it be kept to main canon ships or include the stuff on Memory Beta?

    I say as long as its Star Trek it should be ok if it gets more people interested.

    Yeah I'd say we keep it open to all Trek ships, even concept ideas.

    Well, anyone who knows me, knows what my first choice will be :pac:

    The beautiful work-horse that is the Miranda:

    a6c5efd1427c7b901ad4a0fe2ff18ffd1494626532.jpg

    Beyond that, I'm a little stumped; I was going to select the Olympic class for badness, though I kinda like how it feels more a scientific, observational vessel.

    For a real choice: it may be an unpopular but while the films themselves were godawful (bar the third one), I've always been partial to the Enterprise redesign from the 2009 reboot. The sleek, stylish look was a nice change, without completely abandoning the design principles.

    It'd be rude not to post a picture or two I suppose and I'm steering clear of the popular ships.


    While she does look goofy in profile that three quarter view is very cool and front on she's just menacing.

    The Jem'Hadar fighter has a really insect like shape that I always thought was cool.

    Peregrine class gets an honourable mention because I like fighters.

    and the Soverign class like the Enterprise-E


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 21,858 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Kiith


    The Akira was definitely my favourite, and the D'deridex was a classic. Loved the newer Romulan Valdore calss warbirds in Nemesis.

    She is a beauty alright. I have the Eaglemoss model of it and it's really good.

    We could have a side contest for favourite Enterprise... I'll nominate the Galaxy class :)

    Galaxy class for me too.

    Miranda is a favorite, but I've always been partial to Excelsior.

    7c8eb00ca34caa86baf0a180f6eb7d33.jpg

    Gigantic nacelles, and a very balanced design. This looked like a very natural evolution from the Constitution class.

    In a similar vein, talking about best looking Enterprise; it's always this one for me:

    Intrepid class - folding nacelles ❤️❤️


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,513 ✭✭✭✭ TheValeyard


    Keep em coming folks. I'll compile a list when we get a few more ships :)

  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 27,815 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp


    But, I named the Miranda, so why are we still taking nominations? :D :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,494 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Was Prometheus the one The Doctor travelled to in Voyager?
    I'll nominate that one sure and its 3 way splitting battle mode

    Yes it was and I was just thinking about it earlier myself and thinking how no one had suggested it yet. I might have myself but did not.

    I hope to start putting the list together this weekend.


    Then do a random number generator to place them and pick two random numbers to pit them against each other, what ye think?

    Fcuk Putin. Glory to Ukraine!

    Is there a way to keep peoples nominations apart in round 1 at least?
    Put 1 of each in a different side of the draw?

    Sort them into two groups and pick one from each with a random number generator.

    Will always have a soft spot for the Constitution class refit.

    The Enterprise looked especially great with all the battle damage sustained at the battle of Khitomer. She took some beating.
