The most iconic ship - the enterprise 1701 is 5th? Totalfilm bow your heads in shame!

Pretty good list I guess, but Nostromo should so be numero uno.
Of and the Death Star is still not a starship/spaceship just because it can move! Listen to the dialogue in the film,
that's no moon, it's a space station!

The ships that invade the planet in Independence Day aren't actually the mothership. That's the one in orbit that they blow up so that they can destroy the attacker ships. #pedantic

Though Battlestar Galactica isn´t a movie-Spaceship, it nonetheless deseves a honorable mention because it so fragging awesome.

Battlestar Galactica is actually a movie ship since in 1979 it played in theaters.

If Lucas is going to keep re-hashing his sht, at least he could get Han to say something like "point oh two light years" instead of "parsecs". A parsec is a measure of distance for cryin' out loud (not that this is news anymore). He's got the CGI fu (that's all he has anymore anyway), he can FIX IT.

You cant teach an old dog new tricks or in Lucas' case... teach an old dog that Frank Darabont is a brilliant writer and would never have turned Indiana Jones into a laughing stock! Next time go with your gut Steven!

Where's the aliens house from Bad Taste?

Hey, at least Serenity is number 9. I'm happy with that.

The spaceship the kids made out of an old waltser and junk from explorers.
carnt remember what they called it but it was mighty impressive when i was a kid lol.
Mar 9th 2011, 22:33
I was kinda hoping in some weird cheesy way that either Barbarella's ship or the Lexx would make it....ah well heigh ho!

Serenity should be higher up. Whilst everyone was shedding a tear for Wash, I was still devastated by the damage done to it. That scene when it's plumeting through the air honestly made me cry (wuss I know) but no other inamate object has ever done that to me in a film. It truly was as much an important character in that show/film as any of it's crew.

Damn Straight the Falcon is Number 1. Fastest hunk of Junk in the galaxy. Probably the first ever Best of Movie list i nearly wholeheartedly agree with. Fair dues folks

Serenity shouldve been higher though. Frak the ship from Galaxy Quest, its just a pseudo enterprise.

@dholleyuk NCC-1701 actually :P Death Star should have been way higher than 16 imo. Otherwise, good list, liking #35!

Nice list. Comments could have been funnier, but you knock these out every day and it's hard to get big yuks every time.

@mingfield Yes, a parsec is a unit of distance. However, in the Star Wars Universe, the Kessel Run refers to a journey through a specific region of space dominated by a cluster of black holes. In order for ships to navigate through this region, they have to skirt as close to the black holes as possible without getting pulled in. The faster a ship can travel - the closer to the black holes (or any gravity-heavy body) they can get. Han's boast of the Millenium Falcon being "the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs" is supposed to convey that it is the ONLY ship to have done this in such short a distance - hence, it is one of the fastet ships around. Therefore, this line is accurate, if somewhat obscure...
