11 Comments on FilmCritic’s Top 10 Movie Spaceships

  1. No Serenity (Firefly)?

    Oh. Just read the link…

    And they never picked

    the original Battlestar

    Galactica ship?



  3. Movies only. That’s why no Galactica, Space 1999 Eagle, Serenity, etc.

  4. Ah, but BSG was a movie! I saw it in the theaters. And I also saw Buck Rogers there!

    Both were on TV as well, but the studios tried to make a few fast bucks.

    And, why no Serenity? “Firefly” was a television show…”Serenity” was a movie.

    So I agree with Jim: Philistines!

    Thanks, and I saw BG and BR

    in theaters as well before

    they reached TV. BTW, that

    BR was BR in the 25th Cen.


  6. Apollo 13? give me a break.

  7. nice list, I mostly agree.

    however even after reading the rationale, I’m still not sure about apollo 13… and I think the Star Trek universe gets way too much attention. most of the ships in star wars are really cool but kind of loud… so let’s lump star trek and star wars all together and really annoy people.

    Absolutely without a doubt Serenity should be at the top of the list. no other space ship has so much character without actually being alive. the only one that comes close is Moya who actually is alive, but I don’t know if she counts because she’s from Farscape:the peacekeeper wars which was made for TV.

    but if you count made for TV then 9 and 10 would be the TARDIS from the Five Doctors. and the Vorlon and shadow ships from Babylon 5.

    does the City from Dark City count?

  8. OMG! I forgot Nell, the ship from Battle Beyond the Stars!

    can we make it top 11?

    We are Nestor.

  9. enterprise

  10. Dont Forget THE TULIP from starhunter… Great ship… Great macanic…

    The alien Mothership from “Close encounters of the third kind”. Today it continues being awesome.
