I have a gigantic red and white transformer almost exactly like that.

*Sigh*

Not only has nobody mentioned a Babylon 5 ship, but nobody has mentioned my favorite scifi ship by far;



The Earth Alliance Omega Class Destroyer.

Easily one of the most overlooked of all the awesome scifi warships.

For those of you not familiar with Babylon 5 or the Omega Class, here is a nice video montage from YouTube; YouTube - Babylon 5 Severed Dreams Video Edit

I think someone did mention it already, but credit where credit is due, the omega is a tip of the hat to the Leonov in 2010. There's only bad pics of it on the internet, but you get the idea.

I already mentioned the White Star, and someone else added the Minbari cruiser.

One Shadow Battlecrab with a telepath-proof pilot would pwn all these ships.


And the White Star is a nifty ship.

YEAH! That's my favorite one. It's just such a nice piece of work. Metal landing gear with metal doors with super heavy duty springs that fling open and hit your fingers really hard, very nice plastic, amazing joints... the build quality is nuts. I bought it at a garage sale for $5 back when I was a kid, so it doesn't have all the stickers.

You realize those are two different versions, right? One is obviously a smaller, cheaper version. The other is obviously a larger more complicated version.

I have just seen SUNSHINE, that's a wonderful scifi movie with great effects. The ship resembles the Oddysey from 2001, but with a thermonuclear payload the size of Manhattan attached to it

I found the film boring. And seriously, the SFX only were cool if one has never looked at NASA images of the suns surface.
