Omega Class :( If nothing else for it's realistic 'artificial gravity' using circular motion

Here's my advocacy of the Cylon Basestar
"We're all part of one big ecosystem"
- Number Three
The Cylon Basestar has some rather intriguing concepts in it's design. It's almost like a modern updated Shadow Battlecrab in many ways, with an almost-human 'Hybrid' wired into it's systems like the Battlecrab's human CPU. The Basestar's double three-pointed star design is rather interesting, and gives the impression of hanging in space, radiating an imposing presence, launching swarms of Raiders and missiles like a metalic hornet's nest. The Basestar is also interesting in that it is a fusion of biological and nonbiological technology, almost like an animal in itself, or more likely an entire symbiotic space-going ecosystem, supporting an ecology of humanoid Cylons, Raiders etc. Worst thing about the Basestar is the spartan interior archetecture of the coridoors, of which there are an endless maze.

The Shadow Ships ( called battlecrab in this tourney )....... An odd choice because this is the LAST ship I would want to be in, since you have to be lobotomized to operate one. The ships are great in the sense that they are incredibly fast and powerful and awe inspiring and really scary ( they scream with a banshee like wail), but it's like the total opposite of Serenity or The Millenium Falcon since nobody can live in one.. Guess it's all in how you define "great..."

TIE BREAKER

Shadow Battlecrab vs The TARDIS

Not an easy choice, on the one hand I have the best ship we have, it can cross time space, dimensions and can look like anything it wants to, on the other hand I have a ship from a show I know very little about and don’t really enjoy.

Sadly, this one has to go to the ship that I feel really makes an impact on the audience, and were this one round ago I would have argued this, but from what little I’ve seen, and from what I got from one post this round, I have to make this one vote.

TARDIS
By the way; did I mention, it also travels in time?
- The Doctor
The TARDIS might not be bristling with weapons, but it's incredibly advanced, with the ability to travel anywhere in space and time; however the process of travel in this particular TARDIS is fairly random, as being enigmatically semi-sentient the TARDIS likes to sniff out trouble and land you in a convenient spot for an adventure. Unpredictable and adventure-seeking pretty much sums up the nature of this TARDIS.

Battlecrab
It was jet black. A shade of black so deep your eye just kinda slides off it. And it shimmered when you looked at it. A spider big as death and twice as ugly. And when it flies past, it's like you hear a scream in your mind.
- Lt. Warren Keffer
So what's the Battlecrab got that the TARDIS doesn't? It might not be as large in scope range-wise or as versatile as the TARDIS, and can't travel in time, but it's armed, imposing, and as scary as a ship can be. The Shadows' practice of using living beings as slaved mind-controlled CPUs for these ships is creepy enough. Everything about the Battlecrab radiates a chilling, but perversely awe-inspiring, aura of sheer insidious presence. Enough said.

Tiebreaker

The TARDIS to GO - It's iconic, and massively versatile, but IMO it's far outclassed by the other ships in the tourny

I like them both even though I'm fairly new to Doctor Who, but the Shadow battlecrab has the more emotional impact on me. Wraith Scientist said it well.
This is where I'm on the opposite - having watched all the older seasons of Doctor Who (20 something!) and it being my introduction to fandom. It has a HUGE emotional impact for me. From what I've seen of the new show, the Tardis just doesn't have the same presence. So I can understand viewers of the new series only not understanding the impact it has.

And I think great is subjective as are most of these tourneys and Big firepower doesn't really impress me unless it's comparing 2 ships I don't know anything about and they both are battle ships.

So while the Shadow is a great ship, in no way would I vote for it over the Tardis.

It's a tough one but, for me, in the end the Shadow Ships are just so imposing and enigmatic. One of my all time favourite ships. Plus, i love their "scream". Just like the Nazgul in LotR but... much more terrifying.

FINAL ROUND

Millennium Falcon vs Serenity

I think this is pretty much what I would have predicted back at the start of the tourney. Right, may as well get this said now, why do I think SERENITY is worthy of winning? Well, look at the falcon, it’s clearly been used, been through everything, and needs constant care to keep her running, she needs love to keep her in the air. Serenity has absolutely everything that makes the falcon special, but she’s has one thing that the falcon does not. Serenity looks like a home, she holds pieces of the personalities of the crew who reside in her, and that makes her the winner in my opinion.

My Vote
SERENITY to win
Millennium Falcon to finish SECOND

(I was going to pick the Moya second strictly based on looks. Now if the focus was on which ship do you want to take into battle, I would have picked the White Star)

The Falcon was not my first choice to win either. Galactica or Moya if Galactica couldn't. I like both of these, but Ill go with the falcon, since Serenity seems sort of like a homage to the Falcon. Nostalgia, I guess, is the deciding factor for me.

As for titles based on ships, you could also make a case for Farscape. Crichton's module was called Farscape One.

well, it wasn't a ship on the list, but if we have Deep Space 9 we should probably have Babylon 5 on that side list. (since we have Farscape one and that wasn't on the list either was it?)

Ooops, you're right.. Farscape one was not on the list as a ship, so we ARE back to ten..... We did have Deep Space 9 as a "ship" ..........

I think it shows how masculine science fiction is that the shows are named after objects......

This is just.... unbelievable..... cannot believe I'm posting this but:

RESULTS

Millenium Falcon - 10
Serenity - 10

Which means that this tourney ends in a TIE!

Millenium Falcon and Serenity finish JOINT FIRST

I don't think anyone saw this coming way back at the begining of the tourney, but both deserve to be up here. Sorry it's a bit of an anti-climax, but that's just how it goes sometimes :)

Thanks to everyone who's voted, it's been fun :D

Cool, I had a hard time deciding between the last 2 so a tie is good.

Kind of interesting how the top 3 ships are all basically transport ships with a crew of rogues.

WOW! I didn't expect that! Fair result imo. It's amazing how both ships are so similar apart from the Falcon's offensive and FTL capabilities.

Thanks Signal for yet another excellent tournament. :) This one seemed to fly by.

I'd say just include any sci/fi people come up with, be more interested in seeing a complete list instead of just the ships from this tournament. Id also change Serenity to Serenity/Firefly as both are named for the ship.

This seems the best place to post this: If anyone is curious why Babylon 5's White Star ships arouse such fervor, there's a video on YouTube that is a good display of the physics of Babylon 5: Whitestar Music Video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLDEA0MDYFw) by Kenny (kengandalf). Strange choice of music (Loreena McKennitt), but it works.

Mm, I hadn't realized how much I missed those bot-cam perspectives.
