MY TOP 5 MOVIE SPACE VESSELS
All right, they’re really space ships but how often do you get to use the word vessel on a daily basis? Here’s my top 5 (in order in awesome):
5. THE BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.
Why is the BSG so important? Only cause it holds the fate of humanity in it’s hands. I’m not going to spend a ton of time arguing this pick. Either you’ve watched BSG and totally agree or you haven’t and should go slam your head into a brick wall fifty or a thousand times!
4. THE NEBUCHADNEZZER.
Technically, not a space ship but I’m going to argue it could be retrofitted for space travel and you can’t argue because there’s no real proof about whether it’s right or wrong since it’s not a real thing! Look, if you’re going to fly around trying to avoid flying Octopi, what better way to do it than in a ship that has a name that’s hard to spell and can allow you to jump buildings and do Kung Fu in a made up reality? Hmmmmm….????
3. THE FIREFLY.
The poor man’s Millenium Falcon. What puts the Firefly so high on this list is it’s charm. There’s something great (in Sci-Fi) about a bucket of bolts that’ll always manage to hold together long enough to get you out of a pinch. Plus, it kind of looks like a robot chicken.
2. THE U.S.S. ENTERPRISE.
This ship wouldn’t have even made my list if J.J. Abrams had never been born. However, he was and suddenly a whole new world of Sci-Fi was made readily available for my enjoyment. Truthfully, while I was never a big Star Trek fan, this ship has always been bad-ass and it’s hard to deny it’s iconic status.
1. THE MILLENIUM FALCON.
Not much to argue here… I mean, how many other ships could make the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs? Honestly!
