Like it says in the title. Give a reason or two why.

When I had kids around the house, I'd probably have chosen the 1701-D as a practical matter.

Now, I think I'd pick the NX-01.

Pivotal moments in Earth / Federation history. Technology should be a little closer to modern day (depending on the episode). CDR Tucker was one of my favorite characters, so I admit I wouldn't mind serving on his team.

Whichever one doesn't get blown up every time there's a movie.

And as long as I'm not a Red Shirt.

NX-01: Fate uncertain
1701: Blowed up by Kirk
1701-A: Trashed, decommissioned
1701-B: Trashed, didn't get blowed up because of Kirk
1701-C: Blowed up by Klingons, thanks to Picard
1701-D: Not blowed up by Klingons, then crashed, thanks to Riker
1701-E: Trashed, career ended by Nemesis writers

JJ1701: Trashed, trashed worse, then blowed up by killer bees.
JJ1701-A: Who knows?

Troi was driving.

Yeah I'd go with the WWII Enterprise CV-6. The Star Trek versions usually get destroyed.

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP10 Sep 2018 5:40 p.m. PST

CV-6. If I have to have one with warp drive, it has to be 1701.

1701 second the no red shirt comment.

jowady10 Sep 2018 6:45 p.m. PST

CV6 or NCC1701

StarCruiser10 Sep 2018 8:14 p.m. PST

NCC-1701; no bloody A, B, C or D!

Thresher01 Supporting Member of TMP10 Sep 2018 8:22 p.m. PST

Hmmm, my general inclination is for the "D" model, since it just looks so nice.

That said, the classic NCC-1701, with the Romulan cloaking device would be my next pick.

AND, of course, I'd really rather captain a D-7, since they just look much cooler.

Soulmage10 Sep 2018 8:33 p.m. PST

1701 refit.

Calico Bill10 Sep 2018 9:41 p.m. PST

1701 before refit

The one that doesn't make me go to war in a jumpsuit or pyjamas lol.

D, it got the holodeck and petting zoo.

Personal logo Herkybird Supporting Member of TMP11 Sep 2018 2:45 p.m. PST

NX-01 for me too, no messing around with Prime Directives!

In a military capacity? 1701. Kirk knows what he's doing, and he only blows up empty ships (or the enemy). Plus, he's got no problem with shooting first, if necessary.

On a general exploratory cruise? 1701-D. Better cabins, holodeck, captain seems a bit more risk averse if you really prefer not to be fighting everyone you meet.

Not the NX-01, though. Kinda pokey, bad armor, and the cute crew members are all spoken for (or outrank you).

Sergeant Paper11 Sep 2018 6:58 p.m. PST

1701, but not as a redshirt. Blue shirt (Sciences), that's the ticket. Or Gold (Command), those guys tend to survive.

NX-01. Vulcan and Orion females are hot.
