Comments on "Top Ten Favorite Fictional Ships" - Faerye Net 2011-02-18T12:42:58+00:00 Re: You missed one! 2011-02-18T12:42:58+00:00 2011-02-18T12:42:58+00:00 <p>Well, despite my inclusion of the White Star, these are supposed to be individual ships, so I wouldn’t have used a whole class like that. The individual Bird of Prey with which I’m most familiar is the one they renamed <em>HMS Bounty</em> in <em>Star Trek IV</em> — despite the fabulous whale tank, not a ship amazingly productive of affection!</p> Felicity You missed one! 2011-02-17T00:22:49+00:00 2011-02-17T00:22:49+00:00 <p>Hi!</p> <p>This is my first time reading your blog and so far I’ve liked what I’ve seen. :)</p> <p>But I must add one more ship to your list, which I consider my favourite ship above all else (even though I do like the STNG-ships in general a lot). It is the mighty klingon Bird of Prey, of course, packed with hot klingons.

As to the TARDIS, I have never seen a single episode of <em>Doctor Who</em>, so I’ve no idea as to the internal appointments of the TARDIS and no particular feelings directed toward it.</p> Felicity Just a few missing options 2010-12-29T09:56:59+00:00 2010-12-29T09:56:59+00:00 <p>However you feel about HGTTG, Heart of Gold is a truly awesome vessel. What other ship will turn you into furniture and bring you penguins?</p> <p>More importantly, I’m not sure how you can define ship in a way that doesn’t require the TARDIS to be front and center on that list. It has a library in a swimming pool! Episodes set entirely inside it while it was traveling through space! Also, it rocks; especially with its new steampunky makeover.</p> Evan Tachyons 2010-12-28T09:55:11+00:00 2010-12-28T09:55:11+00:00 <p>Those tachyon pulses do such delicious things with time.<br /> Unrelated, but one of my grandmother sent me two tiny pewter elephants for Christmas. I immediately named them Darmok and Jalad.</p> Emily Re: Nice Ships 2010-12-26T21:08:53+00:00 2010-12-26T21:08:53+00:00 <p>Oh god, that lightship was <em>gorgeous</em>. If I had one I would name it the <em>Sense of Wonder</em> ;p</p> <p>If I were going to include fighters, I’d have put X-Wings. But I don’t have an individual one in mind there, and really they don’t feel like ships. More like airplanes, whereas the <em>Falcon</em>, for all its bomber features, crossed into shipness.</p> <p>Borg cube = evil. Over on Facebook one of my friends suggested the <em>Pequod</em>, but these are ships I have warm, fuzzy feelings about. I was tempted to put the <em>Sulaco</em>, but again, my feelings are not so fuzzy!</p> Felicity Re: love your launch 2010-12-26T21:05:08+00:00 2010-12-26T21:05:08+00:00 <p>Thankee, Jan.</p> Felicity Nice Ships 2010-12-26T20:29:38+00:00 2010-12-26T20:29:38+00:00 <p>This is a fine collection of ships… I’m going to add more:</p> <p>The Bajoran “lightship” from DS9’s “Explorers” episode.<br /> The Battlestar Galactica. It was awesome in it’s original and awesomer in the remake… I’m going too add Vipers and Cylon Raiders (new ones).</p> <p>I’m also going to mention a few others: The USS Defiant, The Borg Cube, totally agree on the Normandy, love Serenity – major character in the show.</p> <p>Finally, The NEW enterprise is THE ship I most want to command. I’d love to get my hands on those ample nacells. Sexy sexy sexy.</p> Jared love your launch 2010-12-26T15:25:54+00:00 2010-12-26T15:25:54+00:00 <p>You have a fine selection of ships.</p> Jan Priddy
