The Brunhilde from LOGH is one of my favorites. It looks like a space yacht but it fits the Imperial trend of building grandiose warships that prioritize aesthetics.





I also love the Alliance warships like the Hyperion from the same series for their highly contrasting utilitarian appearance. They have a Soviet-style "all business, no frills" attitude to their design, just space bricks with engines and lasers.

The Drake battlecruiser in EVE is one of my favorite ships, both for its usefulness in-game and its sleek, aggressive styling.

Lighthuggers from the Revelation Space series are kinda awesome. It's a setting without FTL so space travel between systems is done sublight. Lighthuggers are bigass ships with powerful engines that accelerate to .99c and then cruise at just below the speed of light until their turnover point where they begin braking thrust until they reach the destination system. Their general shape and emphasis on speed reminds me of an SR-71.

Ever wonder what would happen if the Federation and Klingons made a ship together? Well wonder no longer.



She looks pretty drat nice.

Weren't the Klingons behind technologically in most of ST other than cloaking? I got the impression from the series that the only reason they were a serious contender was that their ships were dedicated warships rather than multi-purpose like Starfleet, and even then the best they could achieve was essentially parity. Mostly just wondering what exactly they bring to the table on any sort of collaboration.
