What is your favourite spaceship? It could be from a game, TV show, film, or book. Why do you like it?

My favourite is the Starship Bistromath from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book series. I like it because it's the fastest spaceship in any form of media (I think), can travel through time, and is an amusing concept. In order to perform the calculations needed to plot flight plans, the calculations must be carried out in a simulation italian bistro (complete with android waiters and customers), as numbers behave differently there. I couldn't find a picture, but the ship looks like a small, upended, italian bistro.

Now that's an epic spaceship. And it can kick the Millennium Falcon's butt any day of the week.

Culture GSV. A giant (like, maybe 7 kilometres) ship, capable of destroying a solar system by braking too hard, fitted with all the amenities of a planet. They had populations in the billions (the bigger ones) and AIs with processing power millions of times that of pathetic human minds.

I imagine them like that.

In matter of spaceships, I still rely heavily on Star Wars. Not that I don't know any other, but I just know many from there.

I feel like mentioning two different spaceships:

Concerning small, one-man space fighters, my favourite is likely the N-1 Starfighter, or Naboo Fighter. I like the very elegant design of this vehicle.

Concerning bigger spaceships, one of my favourite is certainly the monstrous Executor-class Star Destroyer. It is huge, armed to the teeth, and still so much more elegant compared to the smaller version with that clumsy control center on top of it.

TARDIS. It's bigger on the inside, can time travel, can teleport as well. It has a swimming pool, a library, multiple control rooms, all that good stuff. It has a wine cellar, a phone that's supposed to be for decoration only, yet somehow manages to work, and it has shields. It's probably the strongest ship here. It can go incredibly quickly, and even enter external universes. Oh also, it's probably the only thing that wouldn't raise alarm because:

A. It's a phone booth. Technically a police public call box.
B. It doesn't need to fly around. It just does sometimes.

You essentially touch (depress) the CapsLock key again

Doesn't the Bistromath feature in the movie, btw? I've trouble finding a pic of it now.

Not in real space though. You need a bistromathic drive for that.

No, it can go incredibly quickly regardless. Also, I refuse to talk about this "bistromathic drive" on account of it not existing in the Doctor Who universe.
