Space Cruiser Yamato from Starblazers And a Crap Ton Of Other Things
Yeah, I know it is just an aircraft carrier modified to be a spaceship. That is EXACTLY what makes it badass.
Listen, Starblazers was awesome. There is no doubt this is on the list because of my adoration for the series growing up. Hell, one of my favorite bands who I have befriended over the years has a song dedicated the a gun from the show. Here, take a listen, Wave motion gun for the win.
Anyway, I fully realize the ship seems like more of a dinosaur than some of the others on this list, but regardless, this thing was a floating battle station. And I know I am not the only one who has love for it, because it has live action movies dedicated to it. That pretty much speaks volumes. Also, Starblazers. Your argument is invalid.
Dropship from Aliens
In a time before CG, they actually had to build these things. They built them to scale, but it is impressive, regardless.
I can’t imagine anyone being shocked with the Dropship from Aliens rounding out the list. As much as I tried to avoid some of the cliche ships people have talked to death, I would only be a fool to pretend the ship in this movie didn’t awe me. The design was so simple, and so form-functioning that this ship, to me, is the most realistic on the list. Wow, realistic space ships. That is my angle here? Wow, not my strongest ending.
The Missing “Master Class”:
Millenium Falcon, U.S.S Enterprise, Serenity, Tardis, X-Wing, Discovery, Nostromo, and I am sure a slew of others you will tell me about.
Brad Pitt wanted me to ask you guys: WHAT’S IN THE BOX???!!
Few Others I Loved:
B.T.A Fighter from Enemy Mine. I loved this movie, as I have told you before. And I love this ship because it looked like a 1950’s version of a spaceship, which only made me like it more.
Thankfully, they edited the giant humans out of the final cut, but left them in the DVD extras.
N.S.E.A Protector from Galaxy Quest: I know this ship was just a ripoff/homage to the Enterprise, but I adore this film, and will give it props any chance I get.
I mean, Snape AND Ripley were in that ship. Does space get any cooler than that?
Alien Derelict from Alien. The thing was like some giant, phallic, twin-boner, stranded in space. Ironically, as a spaceship, that is how I imagine my own fate.
Also, hey guys, you should totally go read my sit, ah, forget it. I’ll spare you a plug for a week. That stuff gets relentless after awhile.
