My favorite was "Space: 1999" Eagle, so I'll list my second favorite: "Space Odyssey" Discovery:



And this is a photo of the rotating set built to shoot the scenes in the spaceship's centrifuge:



Awesome ship, awesome movie, awesome director.

Thunderbird 3 was always my favorite. No wimpy white or black, but blazing Fire Engine Red. How cool is that?

Since my mostest favoritest ships are listed above (just about any of the ships from 2001, A Space Odyssey), I'll put in a plug for another pretty darn cool ship...

The wrecked alien ship from the movie Alien:


So very weird: looks like it's a reasonable shape for a space ship, yet so totally "different". Gives a good sense of the "WTF" factor we'd probably encounter in any alien technology. And the pilot's pretty cool too:

If that's really a pilot. Maybe it's gunner? Or a slacker-alien playing a video game? Whoever he is, it looks like the nasty alien chest Chestburster got him too! Again, a great "WFT" scene...

32. RPG Item: Robotech The Role-Playing Game [Average Rating:6.00 Overall Rank:4463]
The VF-1 "Valkyrie"

In Robotech, the VF-1 is most commonly referred to as the "Veritech Fighter", which is short for Variable Engineering and Robotic Integration TECHnology, but its official popular name "Valkyrie" is used in a few infrequent references.

The VF-1 is different from modern fighter aircraft in that it can transform into three different configurations or modes for different combat environments, and can perform the task of more than one fighting vehicle: In Fighter mode it acts as a jet fighter; in GERWALK (or Guardian in Robotech) mode it acts as a VTOL unit; in Battroid mode (or Battloid in Robotech) it acts as an infantry fighting vehicle.

I like them even more because the Battletech universe originally contained "Land Air Mechs" or LAMs for short that used the visual design for the various Valkyrie configurations. One little bit of a legal scuffle between FASA and Harmony Gold and *poof*, "unseen" mechs!

There are so many good ships in various anime. The Outlaw Star, the Nirvana, Exile, the Arthra, La Muse, the Bebop... Nadesico is my pick though since does so well at both having awesome technical capabilities and a quirky, interesting crew.
