I love the crew on Serenity, but the ship didn't inspire confidence. I think I'm more for the S.S. Heart of Gold, from Hitchhiker's Guide, because I'd get to be entertained by Marvin the Paranoid Android.

There's just so many, I don't think I could pick one. Sure, the Federation starships have their comfort (if I chose one of the 24th-century ships, I'd never be bored, that's for sure), but at the same time the Infinite Improbability Drive sounds really cool. Also, Gundam-style mechs would probably be easier to control. (No elbow room, though; there's just enough room for the pilot and maybe a person or two standing up.)

Part of it would also depend on whether I had a crew or was by myself. (You see how many people it takes to get the Enterprise moving. Compare that with a Gundam.)

Ultimately, I'd take a Federation ship. I would prefer something along the lines of an Enterprise or Defiant, but if I'm flying it by myself, I'd have to take a warp-enabled shuttle. That way, I'd be able to control where I go (a downside with the Heart of Gold), but still be able to move around. Wouldn't mind carrying around a Gundam all the same, though.

Gay Deciever, from Heinlein's The Number Of The Beast. An intelligent ship which can visit settings from fiction, including Oz. And Yes, I love Heinlein's adult novels, especially Friday. She is possibly the best female character in science fiction. I also love the way Heinlein includes taboo topics in his works, especially in the Lazarus Long saga.

Anytime Elle, there's room enough for two, the landing may be a little bumpy though!

Keo spaceship

In a way all of us can leave as early as next year, well at least our own thoughts.

Keo is a spacecraft that will carry messages from anyone who wishes to leave one. Messages will not be edited. Keo will return to Earth (if we haven't destroyed it) in 50.000 years. It will make an artificial Aurora Borealis that will light up the sky, announcing its arrival back home.

One of the message..."I'm bla bla bla. I'm one of the earlier member of LS".. you know for the future Lushies


Keo website and to leave a message

ps If we have moved to Mars I believe the messages will be forwarded there.

The Death Star of course.

After all, it only had one small technical flaw and that was easily fixed.

Red Dwarf.

I really don't think we've seen the full sexual potential of Kryten yet.

Maybe this is just for UK based comedy/sci-fi geeks - woops!

For interstellar travel, the upgraded USS Enterprise from Star Trek : The Motion Picture and Wrath of Khan (the one that was blown up in The Search for Spock).

For zipping around the solar system, the Eagle from Space 1999.

For sheer firepower (if I needed it), the Yamato from Space Battleship Yamato (orig shown in North America as Star Blazers). WWII battleship rebuilt as a space cruiser and packing a Death Star-grade weapon called the Wave Motion Gun.

The TARDIS. She has a pool and everything.

There were quite a few ships from various Gundam series that I'd love to travel in, though.

Of course, that would actually be my pick. But nobody had proposed the death star and I couldn't resist.

If we're allowed to choose ships from our own imagination, then I'd pick Mine. The Blure. (Sadly I've made no drawing of it yet ~_~ )

Otherwise I'd have to go with Voyager. She survived being pulled into the Delta quadrant and god knows how many Borg attacks. The Stargate ships do have a big draw in that their hyper drive abilities allow them to travel between galaxies in a matter of weeks. Finding ZPM's to get that kind of power are a bitch though. Besides, the Voyager has a Holodeck! :)
