a few of my favorite ships

I love cool looking spaceships, who doesn't?  these days, most sci-fi ships tend to be rather bland and realistic.  forget that, gimme a sleek colorful ship any day- the Enterprise, the Jupiter II, or the Ultra Hawks from "Ultra Seven" are all awesome.

this is Thunderbird 2, from the movie Thunderbirds are Go! (1966).  it's generally regarded as the favorite, and it's a great looking ship.  it's used to haul around the various machines and items used for International Rescue's missions.
here we have the Moonlight SY3, possibly the coolest ship ever in Japanese cinema, and that's saying something!  it was used to combat the Kilaak invaders in 1968's Destroy All Monsters, and played an integral role in the saving of the Earth.
