The Galaxy class really grew on me over the years. I like the big saucer. lol I also like the Nebula class alot.

I always felt that, with the introduction of the Sovereign class, the Galaxy was just pushed aside and made an after thought. I mean, the Galaxy was the flagship for several years! :D

Personally, I like the Defiant Class best. It was designed as a ship with teeth, unlike the general concept of most Fed ships. It looks sleek, fast, and aggressive.

See..now I felt the exact opposite..I was glad when the new Sovereign Class came around...that meant that the Galaxy Class would get more show time...and it did..except for the Enterprise and the Yamato..we never saw another Galaxy until "The Jem'hadar" on DS9 with the USS Odyssey...and then once FC came around, the Galaxies popped up regularly and even recieved a refit with the USS Venture...But my favorite ship has to be the Sovereign Class..not just because of the the Enterprise..but also because she looks wicked fast even when she's moving at impulse...and especially at warp...those CG warp shots from Nemesis were amazing...she just looks really awesome...But I love the Galaxy Class and of course the Defiant..and the Constitution Refit...hell even the Intrepid Class grew on me...just something about the Excelsior..i dunno just bothers me...it may just be that the original Excelsior tried to stop the Enterprise from escaping in ST:III, i dunno... i was never as fond of that ship as i was of the Galaxy or even the Ambassador class...Hell even the Akira has some nice lines and is basically a torpedo gunboat...I love pretty much all Federation designs..some more than others but there aren't that many fed ships that i don't like... But if I had to come down to my favorites...

1. Excelsior Refit
2. Akira
3. Miranda
4. Defiant
5. Bird of Prey
6. Constitution Refit
7. NX Class
8. Valdore
9. Sovereign
10. Intrepid


I never was a big fan of non-circular saucer sections, and the deflector on the Galaxy always miffed me. May not be in order, because the 2-7 ships are tied in my mind.

The Excelsior has the circular saucer, the cool nacelles, and the cool deflector and engineering section.

I agree with jradc. My list of canon/semi-canon Starfleet ships:

1. Sovereign Class (duh)
2. New Orleans Class
3. Galaxy Class
4. Intrepid Class
5. Defiant Class
6. Excelsior Class
7. Constitution Class
8. Constitution Class Refit
9. Federation Class
10. Prometheus Class

The Akira, Ambassador, Achilles, and Aegian are really cool too (whoa, unintentional repeating use of words beginning with "A") but this is my top ten. I have never been a big fan of the Miranda Class or the Yeager Class. My top ten non-Starfleet ships:

1. Fek'lhr Class (Klingon)
2. D'deridex Class Warbird (Romulan)
3. Scimitar Class Warbird (Reman)
4. Negh'Var Class (Klingon)
5. B'rel Class (Klingon)
6. Vor'cha Class (Klingon)
7. "Bug" Attack Destroyer (Dominion)
8. Insectoid Fighter (Xindi)
9. Jem'Hadar Dreadnought (Dominion)
10. Cube (Borg)

The Tellarite and Vulcan ships are also really cool. But these are my top ten non-Starfleet vessels. I like Cardassian ships, but none of them are cool enough to beat out any of the more interesting designs (err...Cube? oh well) so they aren't on here either. Yes, I listed D'deridex before Scimitar. No, that was not a mistake. I think Romulan Warbirds look cooler than Reman Warbirds, but it was nice to introduce the Scimitar for a little break of routine. Now I wish someone would see fit to make a Reman full race mod for Armada II, but I guess Future Tense is coming out shortly, and it has Remans as a full race. I'm surprised they haven't been done sooner, actually - same with the Xindi and the Suliban.

Yeah, I agree with ya. The Galaxy is being excluded from most of the episodes when the Sovy came in. :cry:

It almost feels like the Enterprise-E was introduced too early and that maybe it should have been destroyed in First Contact instead, then had a cameo or two in Deep Space 9 (along with other Sovereign-class vessels). The Sovereign can flog a Galaxy (except in stock A2, with the Galaxy's 100+ damage torpedoes and the Sovereign's 60 or so damage torpedoes, nearly as obscene as the Vor'cha's 70+ damage torpedoes and the SuQ'jagh's 30 or so damage torpedoes...balancing issues? plus they forgot to change the pulse files to include stuff about the new Borg battleship structure and the Cardassians, as well as the Sovereign).

I'd really like to get a look at the Enterprise-F soon, but I don't want them to destroy the E-E! :?
