We asked you – TMP link – and you told us…

#1 – Enterprise NCC-1701 (Star Trek) (17% of the vote)
#2 – Klingon D7 (11%)
#3 – X-Wing (10%)
#4 – Millenium Falcon (9%)
#5 – Imperial Star Destroyer (Star Wars) (9%)

I'm surprised the D7 is there, but the rest is pretty obvious.

Interesting that there's no Romulan Bird of Prey, and no TIE fighter. And I seldom hear of starship wargames going "off-brand" if you will.

We must, of course, immediately have a new poll.

No Love for BSG and B5?

Battlestar, Bird of Prey and TIE Fighter made the Top 10…

What about the Babylon 5 universe?

I am shocked that space battleship Yamato was not on the list.

Toaster08 Aug 2018 9:55 p.m. PST

Give me the Liberator. Actually I already have one.

Eagle Transporter from Space 1999. Since it is the only one I own it has to make my list.

Mutant Q09 Aug 2018 4:07 a.m. PST

Give me the Rocinante/Tachi.

Yamato has been around since the mid 70's why in the hell wasn't it included in the poll?

I think this list is tainted IMHO.

I won't argue against any mentioned, but I DO do a one-eighty to Pontifex. My first Trek spaceship model was a D7, and still love.

I recently got a Roci, moderate to big bucks, so it ended being a 'must have.'

Yeah- dunno why the Whitestar or Shadow ship wasn't on the vote list but the X-wing is listed twice? Not to say Babylon 5 would have had the pull to get on there but- anyway.

I don't know why the Millenium Falcon got voted either. Great iconic ship for sure, but a ship I need in my collection? It's a freighter and one of a kind ship- ultimately not that relevant for tabletop gaming.

Romulan Warbird
Battleship Yamato
Aliens Nostromo

Star Wars: Imperial interceptor (star Destoryer)

I have to also go with the MCRN Donnager. A bad ass battleship and it carries 8 Roci's.

B5 – Warlock Class Cruiser is way cooler then over half that list.

Personal logo green beanie Supporting Member of TMP24 Aug 2018 5:10 a.m. PST

funny, when I bought my Earth Force Warlock it was a destroyer.

Captain Gideon Inactive Member24 Aug 2018 6:57 a.m. PST

I think it was upgraded because of Shadow tech.

Stogie24 Aug 2018 4:39 p.m. PST

My bad, it is a destroyer. Sounds better as cruiser though.

The Arcadia, as flown by Captain Harlock.
