What was your favourite ship?

It's a close run thing, but for me i think it was the Spathi Eluder... Honourable mention goes to the Androsynth Guardian and the Orz Nemesis.  Bonus comedy award goes to the Pkunk Fury which always raised a laugh (moron, bozo, bird brain)

The Fury is my favorite, but I've had the best luck with the Eluder.   Smiley

I love the Orz Nemesis.

Man, I hated fighting the computer when it was Spathi... always ran away from me.

Either the Chmrrr Avatar (The only thing that had a chance against that puppy was the Ur-Quan) or the Ur-Quan. I *hated* the ship in the single player game.

The Orz.  Hands down -  I love those puppies.  Between the aim-able main turret and the "INVADER"s, there's no ship I can't take down with an Orz ship :-)

The computer was too easy to beat with damn near any ship... the Thraddash Torch could beat the computer because the computer was dumb enough to chase you generally.  A decent human player would normally be able to take down a Torch without much effort.

The Avatar was a good ship but not very versatile, too slow and short range.  I could even take one down with my Eluder, althought it wasn't easy, the front gun could only get one or two bullets past the point defense per salvo and the rear gun was useless.  However, the Guardian could beat an Avatar almost every time, as could the Nemesis.  Utwig Juggers use Avatars as flying refueling stations.

The Jugger was another great ship, I almost had that in my top three, slight lack of versatility though.

The Kohr-Ah Marauder was probably the best ship in the game for power, when flown by a skilled human pilot it basically had no weaknesses, but it's not my favourite because it lacks character compared to the Eluder et al.

I always kinda liked the Supox and thought if you put the time in you could make it a lethal ship with its crazy flying abilities, but I never really managed to master it.  Did anyone else get any mileage out of it?

The Yehat was my favourite ship from Star Control 1, but in SC2 it seemed less maneuverable, perhaps it was just that most of the new ships were faster, or perhaps they reduced its speed, but it went from being one of the more agile craft to being a bit sluggish for me.

I could debate this for hours, the joys of an internet connection at work.

Without question, my favorite ship for playing against humans was the Supox Blade.  Spend a little time mastering it and its maneuverability made it nearly unstoppable.  I'd routinely take out 1/4 of my opponents fleet with one Supox.

I'd also have to rate the Orz highly - not much was more fun than marines.

My fingers are itching now...

Favorite? Umm... that's a tough one. I like Pkunk Fury and Slylandro Drone. My big brother worships Androsynth Guardian.  Tongue

Favorite ship? Hmm..

I'd have to say the Yehat Terminator... twin rapidfire machine guns and shield = $. It can give any ship a good fight.

After that, the Chmmr Avatar was really cool. At first, it seemed invulnerable with its ZapSats. Also have to give props to the Melnorme Trader and the Ur-Quan Dreadnought.

Let's see.  My favorite would have to be the Ur-Quan Dreadnought.  "Launch Fighters!"
Second favorite would be the Utwig Jugger.  Nothing like having unlimited ammo.   Grin
Third would be the Yehat Terminator.
Fourth is the Supox ship(can't remember the name)
Fifth and final would be the Earthling Cruiser.  Hey, gotta like the ship of our homeworld!

My least favorite ship is the Ilwrath Avenger.  Bastards always took a big cunk of my crew away!  And I hate spiders!
