Nostromo is the human ship right? Yeah that one is forgettable. But the
derelict ship in Alien was unparalleled! And what about the Medical
Frigate from Star War? That's a "pile of crap", but it's great. And the
main ship in 2001 (what's the name?) is also very cool in my books. In
contrast, White Base is not cool, Musai is cool, and Gwazine is only cool
if it were an ocean liner in space (Red Titanic?).
