dump your favorit starship here please
Oops, sorry, there's some planes in here...stupid directory dumper...
Here are a few :-)
and a few more ;-)
go on then, a few more ;-)
That is one hell of a vessel. Where did you find that? Is there more?
Warhammer 4000k is where that's from, IIRC
It's from the Warhammer 40K, more specifically the Battlefleet Gothic specialist game
I don't think many things have held up as well as the movie Enterprise. It was designed 32 years ago and it STILL passes as futuristic regardless of what athstetic preferences have occured over the last 3 decades. The TOS Enterprise and the TNG Enterprise on the other hand do show the times they were designed in which while not bad, impact their ability to state "this is the future".
to keep this treat alive
I had a Blake's 7 binge this summer so the Liberator is the first thing I thought of.
Starbug was technically not supposed to be a "star" ship but a transport vehicle with no FTL capabilities, a technicality which didn't stop the boys from traveling between star systems for some reason. Red Dwarf was never known for being backed by sound science anyway though.
I've had this as my desktop background for months now. Series 6, when they have lost the Dwarf and are trucking around space in the 'Bug is some of my favorite TV ever. I can watch those episodes over and over again.
I've just started playing Halo: Reach, so here's the Pillar of Autumn.
keep up the good work
where is that from?
Check this out. From FSX

I'm in the middle of watching Starship Troopers for like the 20th time right now. I snapped a shot of the Rodger Young and remembered this thread so I thought I'd post it here. It wasn't the ship itself I was interested in in this particular shot though, it's the orbital ring space station thingy circling the moon which caught my eye.
Now that I've had a second look, it's way too close to the moon isn't it? There is no way that would be stable. It should be wider and further out. I generally fail at math and physics but even I can tell, that wouldn't work.
yeah more spaceships please.
Another pic from Troopers. Here's the Rodg after getting pasted by bug plasma.
and there she blows
If I'm not mistaken, Troopers was the last major SF film to use a combination of George Lucas style toy models and CGI for the space battles, and that was only due to budgetary constraints at the time. It's cheaper to use CGI these days. The space battles are secondary to the action on the ground anyway; this movie is mostly about the infantry.
Prawn mothership from D9.
Just watched this yesterday. I loved it.
the eagle from moon1999
space ship made by a guy calling him self madeinjapan.
Blast you! I initially wanted to display the Enterprise on my post, but that's ok. Here's my 2nd favorite. The Borg Cube. First introduced in "Q Who?", Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Question. How, could we possibly neglect to exhibit this marvelous vessel?
By the way, I will return with some starship pics, from foreign alien races in Star Trek.
Before I show some from other alien races, I thought I might show off this baby, and perhaps a few more Federation starships. I give you: The very first Enterprise.
The USS Prometheus. Another great Federation ship.
I'm in the mood for more Borg ships. First appeared in VOY: Dark Frontier, it's the Borg Cube Variant 2. Thusly, the former cube diagram is referred to as the Variant 1. As you can see, there are some similar structural components, as with all of them. Allow me to demonstrate, with the following post.
Here is the Class-4 tactical cube. The last of the Borg cube vessels. Visual evidence from VOY: "Unimatrix Zero" supports the assumption that it is of the same size as a 3km cube variant 2.
The Probe. This coffin-shaped Borg ship is roughly the size of a Federation Intrepid class (which was shown in Post No. 25 by )and is indeed a match in terms of fire power. This one only appeared in VOY: Dark Frontier.
This diamond-shaped vessel just happens to carry the Borg Queen, and is called: The Queen's Ship. Who woulda thought? This one was destroyed in Dark Frontier, but we may assume that a new one was built. Now I need to go find some more
How about the transport bug from the Starship Troopers TV series? A living starship, capable of FTL.
My attempt to find the canonical schemata for the starships has been a success. Enjoy! http://www.shipschematics.net/startrek/others_data.php
Hello /sff/ I'm searching for a certain ''spaceship''if it can be called like that. Description: It's long, I think it was purple, he has four planets around him and sun in the middle. I really need it so If you find it please post. Thanks.
Is it from a game? Book? Comic?
I think it was from some kind of game, or it might've been some kind of fandrawing.
adding some Starblazers ships to the list, here is the Andromeda battleship
Awesome ship. Awesome interiors.
Much better Hellraiser In Space movie than the one that actually was Hellraiser In Space.
There's fuckall for images of it online, though.
Yeah, decent movie.
Did 24,25,26 last year, it's good to see the thread still alive :-) now double pleasure, Andromeda Ascendant in body and ship :-)
I'm not a gamer at all and don't know anything about the subject but holy shit, I want to try that one. I was just reading about it and it sounds awesome.
This looks so much like Earth II in Blue Gender. Interesting, I don't imagine it's a mistake.
Sieg mien Kaiser.
Firefly is a silly show with a silly premise but it's a lot of fun none the less. I'm just happy there's an SF TV show where you CAN'T hear the explosions in space. That always irks the fuck out me (lol science).
the so called "Chiggy von Richthofen"
the lighthugger 'Nostalgia for Infinity' from Revelation Space.
In my opinion, the biggest, coolest, most badass ship to *not* break the lightspeed barrier!
I dunno. There were some pretty epic ships in the firefly universe.
However, cool as they are, Firefly's ships weren't kilometers long and equipped with planet-killing weapons that possibly come from the future...
Looks similar to the Normandy from Mass Effect. Maybe a fan design form the same universe?
USS Saratoga from Space: Above and Beyond
thanks for those blueprints from the saratoga
i love space above and beyond.
perry rhodan space ship
Yeah, I've been trying to find decent res pics of the alien planes and ships but I can't find them anywhere. The Chig tank in that one episode looked pretty cool too.
Is Perry Rhodan worth reading? I found almost the whole collection in a little 2nd hand bookstore the other day and was intrigued.
well you like perry rhodan or not so i whould say give it a try.
don't know what this is, thought it looked kinda cool though
So, where would Discworld fit on the chart? ;)
as a planet, not a space ship.
ooh... lets start a favorite planets/moons thread. I'm on a friend's computer so I got nothing at the moment.
Not the best pic but I always thought this was an interesting vessel. I guess an exoatmospheric craft doesn't have to be aerodynamic and besides, it just looks cool. Alliance "cruisers" were also carriers of a sort incidentally, as they had squadrons of gunships on board.
and the Magellan
Revisiting this pic, some thoughts come to mind... compared to some of the other ships featured, a large space carrier like the Saratoga, somewhat longer than a modern day aircraft carrier, is a fucking mosquito. It's even dwarfed by it's enemy counterpart the chig "battleship". The Leonov? does not even register to my eyes. I literally see nothing there. The Discovery, just barely.
This is kind of what makes Star Wars still seem kind of badass in an odd way. It's not everyone who could design a universe where a 17 km long warship is believable.
How about a universe for a ship??
Anybody can blow up a planet, it's another thing altogether to move a planet to wherever you want it...
(surprised no one posted this yet)
non canon star trek ship like the designe
some non-canon has some of the best concepts around. There were better pics of this one before, the USS Claymore, somewhere but I can't find them anymore.
dunno what this is but it's pretty nifty
this thread is strangely missing some gate activity...
I've been rewatching Lexx again and it is as good as I remember it to be. May his divine shadow fall upon you...
A Miranda stylized Excelsior design sheet 1/2
A Miranda stylized Excelsior design sheet 2/2
this one is said to be able to separate into a runabout/defiant type pair.
non-canon can be pretty imaginative sometimes
that film scared the shit out of me
spaceships from the battletech univers. size comparison map
What I liked about SG:U was that not only was the Destiny a pretty cool design for a starship but that it was one of the only few shows while along with doing standard scifi space fare, that also have ever tried to break out and go after something of such a massive scale for a topic such as the origin of the universe. Would have loved to see how they played that one out if they had the chance...
I used to love every bit of that movie but then after watching it again last weekend with a friend I all of a sudden noticed not only did that little fuckin muggie Wikus totally bail out on such an unbelievably incredible journey to wallow in a dump but knowing he could/would be turned back to being a human again that it should have dawned on him that he could have gathered so much wisdom and knowledge to bring back and share with the rest of us that it should have felt like the ONLY logical thing to do. I don't know how else I can explain all of the instantaneous rage that exploded in me when I realized that bullshit. Now, to me, its one of the greatest scifi movies ever made, that ends in garbage-pickin. wtf...
As I recall, Christopher never offered Wikus a lift anyway. Wikus stayed behind to cover Christopher's escape, trusting that Christopher would return and fix him someday. Something like that I think, uh it's been a while.
I think it was like
"I'll be back"
"A few years lol"

Why does this incarnation of the SoL look like a bone? Is it a reference to 2001, where the ape throws a bone up into the air and it cuts to a satellite spinning in the sky? They constantly reference 2001 on the show so...
It looked like that as soon as they left KTMA. It looking like a bone is the whole point behind the ep with the demon dogs.
As for it being based on the Discovery or not, I'm not sure, but I would be surprised if it hasn't been asked. Try doing some internet legwork or ask around on some MST forums.
oh yeah, forgot about the demon dogs... that was a good one. I did poke around on the web a little but no clues. It's not terribly important I suppose.
But in my search I found this. I really want to start a massive SF lego pic dump but I only have a few pics so I just dump them in a relevant thread as I come across them.
What, no Executor?
Some more Executor pics
Concept art from Iron Sky
Dynamic-class freighters (the Ebon Hawk in Knights of the Old Republic...) are pretty cool. Echoes of the YT-1300f (Millenium Falcon.)
Wait, where's this from? Assuming it's just some random artist? It's quite cool, other than the name, haha.
It looks familiar to me too but I can't place it.
The list of heroes you might name a spaceship after must be growing thin though, if they saw fit to name one after that idiot.
Yea, I prefer to think in the future we won't have such political ship names and go for something like names from myth. One of my favourites in in Martian Succesor Nadesico where everything is named after flowers.
That is some concept art from the movie "Iron Sky"
Ah, it's a comedy. That makes sense then.
Also Laibach doing the soundtrack, and Nazis on the moon? Sounds... interesting.
I have a giant book with this image in it...but I chopped up most of the other pages for collages >.>
thats some cool stuff
need more spaceships
I never realized how big the Sulaco was supposed to be.
Look at the noise baffles. then look at the landing bay...interesting design flaw, no? Between the main body of the ship and the engines there's a stack of cooling liquid and the noise baffles, but that short stack of cooling towers won't do much to reduce the noise levels in the landing bay, and thus in the rest of the ship.
The entire ship is basically a giant reverb chamber.
more spaceships more please
