What's cooler than a good old fashioned sci-fi spaceship? Seriously? Science fiction spaceships travel at impossible speeds, they often pack all manner of awesome firepower, and they just look so cool. Most importantly, they travel through space.
Our obsession with space and fci-fi spaceships is nothing new. The fascination has been around as long as science fiction itself. Long before CGI ships shaped like anything imaginable, filmmakers and fans would build miniatures of the spaceships in their heads. Science fiction is a big part of mainstream pop culture thanks to film, TV, video games, and literature, so spaceships are just part of our visual vocabulary. Everybody, even people who aren't into sci-fi, knows which ships they like the most.
We wanted to look back at the coolest sci-fi spaceships throughout the years to find out which one is the best. The classic battle between Star Wars and Star Trek, will it be the Millennium Falcon or the Starship Enterprise? Or maybe even Darth Vader's Tie Fighter? Or something more modern like Star-Lord's Milano in Guardians of the Galaxy?Whatever the case, we want to hear from you! Vote up the spaceship below that you would most want to fly. Your votes will determine to most coveted fictional spaceships in the whole galaxy.
Millennium FalconWhat is there to say that hasn't been said? With Han and Chewie behind the wheel, the Millennium Falcon is the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy. The most famous ship from Star Wars looks cool, it handles like a dream, and it's fast! Heck the thing made the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs.Is this cool?
USS EnterpriseThe first and still the ultimate Star Trek starship. The USS Enterprise has had its share of helmsmen over the years and survived plenty of epic battles, close encounters, and strange phenomena. Its recent overhaul in the rebooted Trek just emphasized how timeless and iconic the core design remains.Is this cool?
Star DestroyerWe all remember the first time we saw this beast passing overhead in Star Wars. It's aptly named and looks like a giant white dagger through space. If you're looking to intimidate any other ships you come across, a Star Destroyer will do the job and more.Is this cool?
X-WingLike Skywalker's X-Wing in Star Wars has incredible agility, it's durable, and it has a sweet little spot for R2D2 to tag along in. Is there a more iconic hero fighter ship?Is this cool?
