Top 10 Coolest Spaceships In Sci-Fi

These are the wickedest ships to boldly go where no one has gone before. Welcome to and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Coolest Sci-Fi Spaceships ever imagined.

Number 10: Serenity (Firefly)

Kicking of our list is the 26th century small transport ship that resembles a giant firefly crossed with a bird. Serenity was designed by Joss Whedon, and bears some resemblance to the “thrown together” look of Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon. This ship was treated like an actual character, and is frequently used to carry out illegal activity. Unlike other spaceships on the list, this one has a pull out toilet and a pilot that likes to play with toy dinosaurs.

Number 9: Spaceball One (Spaceballs)

Yes, this is another Star Wars inspired ship. But this one combines the Death Star and an Imperial Star Destroyer into a never-ending vessel. In fact, this ship is so massive that it contains a shopping mall, zoo and three-ring-circus. Not cool enough? Well it also packs a hilarious bumper sticker, can travel at Ludicrous Speed and can transform into Mega Maid, an air sucking tribute to the statue of liberty.

Number 8: Battlestar Galactica (Battlestar Galactica)

The flagship of Caprica and last hope for the survivors of the Twelve Colonies of Man, this is one of the few vessels to survive a machine led holocaust against humanity. It did so through the use of old-fashioned non-network tech that couldn’t be hijacked via software. Capable of light-speed flight and taking direct nuclear blasts, it’s home over 150 Viper fighters and innumerable character dramas.

Number 7: Jupiter 2 (Lost in Space)

This two-deck nuclear-powered spacecraft cannot travel at warp speed. Instead it packs suspended animation freezing tubes and a badass robot. A family looking to make the vastness of space their home and playground couldn’t ask for much more.

Number 6: Red Dwarf (Red Dwarf)

This enormous mining vessel houses the last man alive, the slob David Lister, and a computer named Holy who has the intelligence of over 6000 Physical education teachers. Sure, its been described as a giant red trash can that takes a year just to turn around, but its a city sized playground that never runs out of fuel! This is due to the scoop on the front of the ship that collects hydrogen from the currents of space.

Number 5: Ha’tak Pyramid Ship (Stargate)

This Goa’uld spaceship is a heavy attack vessel used to enslave countless civilizations. This massive ship was built to land and merge with the Great Pyramids it so closely resembled, before deploying its army of Jaffa. Its distinguishing features include its powerful force shield, countless external staff cannons and use it’s of mood setting torches to light the hallways.

Number 4: Borg Cube (Star Trek)

We were originally going to give this one to the Klingon Warbird, it was assimilated before we could get to it. It may not be aerodynamic, but this geometric spacecraft not only houses the most dangerous species in the Trek Universe, it can assimilate countless worlds, destroy armadas of ships and even regenerate. Resistance is futile.

Number 3: Imperial Fleet (Star Wars)

Tie Fighters, Cargo Transports, Star Destroyers and Death Stars. Every ship in the original trilogy boasts a claim to fame, so let’s just give it to them all. If we had to pick one, it would be the Super Star Destroyer; it’s like a massive knife slicing hope asunder wherever it goes.

Number 2: Rebel Alliance Fleet (Star Wars)

Same deal here, but for the good guys. The ships all mostly get their names from the letters of the Alphabet, such as the A-Wing, B-Wing and X-Wing. It’s also got the Millennium Falcon, the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, and the only thing that Han Solo ever called “baby”. Besides, who doesn’t love a fleet of ships commanded by a giant squid creature.

Number 1: The Enterprise (Star Trek)

Taking top honors on our list is the most iconic spaceship to ever grace both the small and silver screen. It features a distinct signature saucer section and dual warp nacelles.

Since its debut, this ship and its many incarnations have yanked at the heart-strings of countless fans, from its gratuitous intro in “Star Trek: The Motion picture”, to its emotional destruction and re-emergence in Star Trek 3 and 5. Designed for discovery, this ship is also prepared for all-out war. And who wouldn’t give anything for a few hours of alone time on the Enterprise D’s Holodeck? Just admit it.
