Millenium Falcon every time, followed by Serenity. Sorry, would pass by the NX-01 and not even look at it. Nothing to do with abilities, reliabilities or anything like that but Falcon and Serenity had that family feel, felt nothing for ENT.

The NX sustained plenty of damage... and let's not even begin to count how many times vitals systems go offline just at the WRONG moment for drama's sake. Heck, the NX even got hijacked by a computer while in a repairt station port! For such a cushy support system, the NX had tons of problems... but lots of pretty viewscreens and comfy bridge chairs.

Solo doesn't have Starfleet crews to fix his ship, nor Federation part supplies available when needed. He and Chewie slap on the welding goggles and get to work themselves, whenever, wherever they can.... and always on the run. Their bucket of bolts still helped save the galaxy.

In 1977, audiences stood up and cheered when the Falcon jumped into hyperspace. Can anyone say that about any episode of ENT? LOL

Falcon for the win!

I remmber SW in '77, and that cheer. But I remember the same cheer for warp drive at TMP 2 years later....

Ah yes, but Kirk's 1701 isn't in the topic question, heh heh! That's a whole different kettle of dilithium crystals, my friend.

Well the big diffrence here is one was a film, the other a TV show. It's like comparing apples and oranges.

NX-01 wins points for symmetry but that's it. All else goes to the Falcon.

Good point, Vue... though I actually think the Falcon was cool because it was asymmetric, but visually balanced. The design did take a while to get used to, though, but that gave it personality.
