USS Enterprise NCC-1701

Isn’t the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 one of the best starships ever?

Enterprise 1

You might prefer the USS Defiant… (not pictured), or even the USS Excelsior (also not pictured, but on purpose). Don’t get me wrong, I would not look down on having the Defiant safely tucked into my docking bay at Deep Space 9… but for the voyage between here and there, give me Picard’s Enterprise.

USS Enterprise - 1701-D

The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D, with a state-of-the-art sickbay, science labs, an observation lounge, ten forward, replicator terminals all over the place and holodecks that makes traveling in space the joy that flying from New York to LA never was. This ship is twice as long with 8 times the volume of Kirk’s ship. “Take your time, Captain. I’m in no rush.”

This may actually be the best starship ever.

USS Voyager

The Voyager, realistically, might just be too compact for a comfortable trip. But if all I could get to fight off a Romulan Warbird was Voyager, I’d happily take it. Though I’d still rather have the Defiant for this.
