    Default Greatest Ship Tournament

    Was going to open this yesterday, but with the Christmas songs one (courtesy of GG and aintright) just finishing then, I thought I'd give you guys a little break.

    So, the theme is simple, which spaceship, timeship, Pirate ship, whatever ship you want is the greatest in sci-fi and fantasy? Well, seeing as this is the nth time I've done this sort of thing, you know the drill, but for any new players, heres what we do:

    Stage One: Round Zero, vote for your favorite ships from sci-fi or fantasy and any ships that get 3 or more votes gets through into the next stage.

    Stage Two: Vote off one ship per day until we have a winner.


    Got it? Good

    For round zero you get EIGHT votes each to use over the next 4 days, voting will close Friday night, I will finalise the lists, and on Saturday, we will go on to Stage Two. Have fun

    Please, when you vote for something please not if you are the 1st, second or third person to vote for it, and where that ship comes from. So an ideal vote would be:

    USS Voyager - Star Trek: Voyager (1st Vote)
    Equality is not a concept. It's not something we should be striving for. It's a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women. And the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman who is confronted with it.

    Sorry, I am new to this, but what do you mean by for round 0 you get 8 votes each to use over the next four days? Do we get 8 votes per day or 8 votes total?

    Captain John Sheridan: [practicing his apology for blowing up a Centauri War Cruiser] I apologize. I'm sorry. I'm sorry we had to defend ourselves against an unwarranted attack. I'm sorry that your crew was stupid enough to fire on a station filled with a quarter million civilians, including your own people. And I'm sorry I waited as long as I did before I blew them all straight to hell! As with everything else it's the thought that counts.

    I could go on, but White Star is by far coolest (IMO) of all ships... all others are way lower and there is too many of them to choose... White Star simply shines over them.. like a true star.
