The Yamato 2520 is particularly COOL. Of course, nothing beats the
Yamato was perhaps the second most important anime ever, second only to
Gundam. The "next generation" Yamato was a marvelous design, of a huge
and powerful starship, consistent with the tradition of the original
series. It sure reminds me the case between original NCC-1701 and the
ass-kicker NCC-1701-D. As for Syd's designs, well, they are different,
and their "coolness factor" depends on each one's individual taste. wrote:
