This is something you might see at Cons for people to see which is the better Starship if they battled so I was wondering what do the people on here think is the best Starship and why is that the best? So if various Starships had to battle which one would come out on top as the best Starship and why?

I could make a poll but its better to have people say which starship would be better since there are so many of them in existence.

the Death Star,and before you start with "cheater ! the Death Star is a SPACE STATION" know this:

the Death Star is classed as a Starship in most sources,it's basically the Seawise Giant in space.

Technically I think in a ways you are right about it being a starship because technically if it was a space station would it not move wouldn't it just always be stationary in orbit in space?

An X-Wing pilot with a jedi using the force if it would have been a normal x-wing pilot then no one would be able to go up against the death star.

plus,even with an (untrained) Jedi pilot,12 X-Wings and 8 Y-Wings,chances for the assault to actually work were still 8000 to 1,only 2 X-Wings survived,and said 2 X-Wings wouldn't have made it without the YT-1300's late arrival anyway,allowing the Jedi pilot to take the 1 in 1000000 shot.

Bah, there's no fun in you guys...

Anyway, any of the high end ships from Babylon 5 (Fleet of the First Ones, Vorlon Planet Killers, etc.) would easily give the Death Star a run for it's money, esp. in terms of firepower and maneuverability.

Ok it's hard for me to pick the best starship. If I have to pick it would be a hard choice between the white star from Babylon 5, the souped up war bird from Star Treck film Star Treck: Nemesis, or the Outrider from the Star Wars novel Shadows of the Empire. Now why those three well the white star and the Outrider have firepower and speed on their side where as for the souped war bird has firepower, speed , and a cloak. On the down side no Star Treck ship would work in the Star Wars or B5 Universe, the same goes for the star wars ship and b5 ships in the star treck universe.
