I really don't know myself....thought it would make an interesting poll.

I would probably have to go with Romulans.

I loved the early "Bird of Prey" design on Enterprise

The warbird on TNG has always been my favorite Romulan ship...I wish the concept of it being twice the size of the Enterprise was shown more clearly

I also enjoyed the "Valdore" on Nemesis, though I wish they had kept the older Warbird and made the Valdore a completely new class



I put Remans into the poll cause the Scimitar is one awesome ship as well


other ships i like are the Xindi-Aquatics, Klingon Bird of Prey, and Breen

By far the Klingons have the coolest ships. The tuq'Duj (Bird of Prey), Vor'Cha', and the Neg'Var are totally awesome. Even the old D-7 and K'Tinga upgrade are way better than anything else.

I will say that the Reman Scimitar was quite impressive as well.

As for Rommies, the Valdore and the Enterprise version were interesting.

The Cardis' ships look...well...like an upside down bottle.

The Vulcans did have some interesting ship designs.

But, for the record...Klingon Ships Rule, everything else drools!!!

Im not sure what eppisode it was but on voyager where they are made to think that starfleet command has sent them a new ship but its really a trap.

That had a cool design.

And i like the delta flyer

The episode was called "hope and fear". To add to the discussion I like the borg cube because I never thought how a cube could look meanicing. If some one had told me before tng oh Star Trek would have an enemy which flew cube ships I would have laughed. :devil2:

The Scimitar gets my vote. It is unbelievably powerful, even more so then the enterprise. Something that I did not like too much, because I would have thought the Enterprise could handle a lot more then that.

would have been kind of cool if there was a valdor aswell as warbirds all fighting the scimitar.

i personally voted for the borg... who thinks a pair of scimitars vs a borg cube would be an intresting concept?

^ 127 disrupter banks + 52 torpedo launchers? plus shields and firing while cloaked? there is a reason why i think the scimitar would put up a good fight against the borg. i'm suprised the enterprise lasted aslong as it did.

Well, I would agree there, although there was never anything to stop a ship firing while cloaked it was just IMO never done save for the two movies because it gives an enemy a massive tactical advantage, which is what the scimitar had. The reason why a vessel could not cloak and shield itself was more believable, the power requirements would be enormous. And as a shield gets impacted, it draws more power (or weakens) so unless you had a significantly strong energy source then you would lose either your shields or your cloak which leads me to believe that the Scimitar would be weakly shielded when cloaked and when the Enterprise (eventualy) fired direct shots at it, the cloak eventualy failed and the shield went to full strength.

I dont see how 127 distruptors and 52 torpedo launchers would make any difference as the Scimitar probably couldnt fire them all at once without dropping the cloak. Although considering that the Remans probably use Singularities as well, power may be less of a problem then for the Enterprise which was without a warp core at the time, so she would have had less power for the shields.

And to that end, the fact that she held up so well is testiment to Federation Deflector technology, although if they could develop a reliable means of directing energy impacts on the shields into the shield generators it would be nice. Because then the more they attack you the stronger your defenses.

I would have loved the Nemesis battle even more if there were some TNG style warbirds fighting the Scimitar as well, I swear they gotta be much bigger than the Valdore??

I think the Borg might have trouble against just one Scimitar :D

See this is why I hate voyager, the borg were intended to be the unstopable ultimate enemy and here people are saying that the scimitar would make short work of a cube? Now don't get me wrong this scimitar is an ultra powerful kick ass ship but I think the borg would win, although I think it would a very cool battle and the borg would probably be pretty messed up afterwards.

Sorry to rant.
