No idea, Star Wars, Empire strikes Back?
Avatar. The antimatter-powered starship that uses unobtanium as a means of magnetically containing its antimatter fuel. Those huge spheres house the antimatter. The big red things are radiation panels designed to shed the heat generated by matter-antimatter annihilation. The two engines behind the radiation panels pull the rest of the ship forwards. The design is very well conceived. Real hard SF in fact. ;-)

Enterprise NCC 1701A. It's a big old hot rod and does things that probably can't be done, but looks good doing it.

Anyone else have the Star Bird and Intruder spaceship toys when they were kids? They looked and played awesome. You could even play games with mates with them, as they were light light gun toys registering 'hits'. As you tilted them (climbing and descending), the sounds their engines made would change and they would flash and make a sound when firing their lasers. Very cool toys, and in many ways more fun (and far less expensive) than SW toys.

Yeah all of then have a moment in my geek life

The Liberator was the first "never seen anything like that in a spaceship design before" just instantly iconic

The Eagle was the first I ever thought could be a genuine workman spaceship this is something a bricklayer would use

Serenity ... I wanted to live on this ship TBH still do

Galactica I loved the music I loved the ship

Starbug Fun Fun Fun in the Sun sun sun great show great ship

Imperial Destroyer Its 1977 I am 10 years old with my Dad in the swansea odeon the lights go down that Lucas arts music sting and then this bohemoth just keeps flowing across te screen ... 10 year old mind blown

Thunderbird 4 I wanted to pilot that thing

The Cygnus the Black Hole was my very first VHS

Event Horiszon just a cool cool horror I mean Hellraiser in space

I love them all

I have a confession guys.
Never seen the big sf films. Hehe… it’s my shame.

But I like Prometheus.

Let’s all get on my room on instasync and watch SF flicks together. I’ll supply the intermissions.

Thunderbird 4 was an undersea craft (one that was launched down rails from one of Thunderbird 2's pods. (I had a Corgi** Thunderbird 2 that came with a Thunderbird 4 inside its pod.)

Thunderbird 3 was the space-going craft.


** - I think it was the Corgi T2: quite small and heavy (as it was made of metal). I wonder where it is now.

I'm a big fan of flying saucers in general... Earth Versus, Forbidden Planet, Dalek Invasion of Earth, etc. Also V-2 inspired rocket ships. I like the original Star Trek Enterprise design, and also the Klingon Bird of Prey. Blake's 7 Liberator. Moya and Talyn from Farscape. TIE interceptors from Star Wars. The Cygnus from the Black Hole.

Ha ha! I have those three in my loft. There was also the Star Bird: Avenger. (same as the Star Bird, but different stickers.
