25 Coolest Starships In Sci-Fi

Starships and space exploration has always been an enduring theme of science fiction. From traveling through hyperspace to making the Kessel Run in under twelve parsecs, over the years, writers and filmmakers have stretched what starships are capable of and dreamed of something greater. They’ve sent us all over the galaxy, putting us into intense space battles, and flying us through impossible asteroid fields. So, out of all the starships which are the coolest? Here are 25 Coolest Starships In Sci-Fi.

The Trimaxion Drone Ship is the main spacecraft in the movie Flight of the Navigator. It’s piloted by the AI computer Max and looks kind of like a chrome clamshell. The ability of the ship is pretty outstanding, capable of flying faster than the speed of light and traveling through time.

Called the Derelict and codenamed Origin, the alien spacecraft was found on LV-426 in the movie Alien. It was first discovered by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation before being investigated by the team of the Nostromo. No one knows how it got there or who piloted it. The only remaining figure as the potential pilot was a fossilized being. Regardless, it remains the cool and ominous ship which housed the Xenomorph Eggs.

Captained by Malcolm Reynolds on the television show Firefly, the Serenity is a Firefly-class ship first acquired by Reynolds shortly after the Unification War. A defining feature of the ship is its lack of weapons. When in trouble, the crew has to use their ingenuity to get out of it. Plus, there’s no denying it’s one sweet looking ship.


Slave I

Piloted by Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back, Slave I famously transported Han Solo in carbonite, delivering him to Jabba the Hutt. Slave I’s most defining feature is its vertical position as it soars through space and then uses its back to land.



TARDIS1Source: http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/TARDIS

The TARDIS in the television show Dr. Who, which stands for “Time and Relative Dimension in Space,” is really more of a materialization machine, capable of appearing and reappearing in a moments time. However, it can also fly through space like a conventional starship. It’s also very different from other starships in that the exterior is in a different dimension from the interior, it can blend into its surroundings, and rather than being built, they’re grown.
