Quite right.In my humble opinion, there is no contest for the best spaceship ever shown on tv or in a film
Oh, and you were doing so well!...it's the Shadow Vessel from Babylon 5
No, HB, no! The Shadow Vessel would sting that giant fishy and leave it drifting helplessly in space! (That is a terrific ship, though...I'll give you that!)No, it's Commander Makara's "catfish in space" cruiser from Starfleet
A notable exception being the the ship in Project Moonbase (1958) which looked like a pile of tin cans strapped together.I am reminded of someone's quote about cinema spaceships - prior to 2001, all spaceships were like cigars.
