Which Space Ship Would You Choose?

For whatever purpose you see fit (exploration, combat, point A to point B transport, profit, etc), what ship would you choose for your very own from cinema, televison, and/or literature? From the SF game or any other RPG (Traveller etc)? And for each of those choices, why?

My answer for the Cinematic/etc question would be a CEC YT-1300 (the ship model that the Millennium Falcon was based on). Small, quick, and agile along with atmospheric capabilities and a fair offense/defense system not to mention a minimal crew to operate; this makes for a fine "does everything well" transport.

Naturally I'll take the trim with the flame licks on the mandibles. Cool


From gaming it would be a demilitarized UPF assault scout or, if possible, the military version...as long as it would be equipped with something resembling a hold in either trim. Even a re-titled pirate scout would do. In the absence of a military version, ultimately I would want my RT-3100 Merchant Scout variant. No matter what trim it is though, it would be small, quick, and agile along with atmospheric capabilities and a fair offense/defense system not to mention a minimal crew to operate; this makes for a fine "does everything well" transport (yes, I copy/cut/pasted that because it is equally applicable).

No, I'm not overly fond of Zeb's Guide. Nor do I have any qualms in stating why. Tongue out

Nah, I'd rather go there and sell them something they don't have that was easily obtained elsewhere for a boat load of cash.
