What happened to that Oliver Cromwell bloke anyway? He would be useful right around now.

 
I am going with the Sobek I have one on my background right now and it's a sleek looking ship that can dish out some hurt.

 
GVD Hatshepsut for being really balanced in terms of offense/defense weapons, and for really heavy armor.

GTC Aeolus for being the best cruiser in the game (that is most balanced, because it looses 3 out of 4 fights vs the Lilith)

And both ships for loooking nice.

The more I look at the Orion and think of the storyline, the more it actually looks outdated to me with its blue colour.

No favourite capital ship, due to our ability to actually edit the tables, and very easily at that. :doubt:
Inferno plz
The Power of Nightmares

Shivan: SCv Moloch (which isn't on the poll!) It may be a useless piece of turd with only 3 SReds and only being able to fire one of them at a time and has horrid subsystem armor, but it looks cool, like a giant fish. I like its design better than all the other Shivan craft and all the GTVA craft, actually. It looks awesome.

Terran: NTF Iceni. The fastest ship that actually has anti-warship beam cannons - three BGreens - more firepower than the Hades, meaning it can outrun and/or outgun virtually every single ship in the game. Everything it doesn't outgun, it can outrun. The table isn't very accurate about its armament, though. In the only mission you actually see it in heavy combat (Rebels and Renegades, was it?), it has AAA beams. Plus, it looks like a fat, boxy, fish with undersized fins. (and it has a smiley face)   :P
(see this image from HTL Iceni thread: )


Vasudan: GVCv Sobek. OMG! Another fish!
(´・ω・`)
=============================================================

 
Definitely the Deimos, 1) cause it looks cool 2) its got a great armament (assuming the target isn't behind it) 3) Remember JAD, anyone?

The Deimos has a special place in my heart after Sync and Homesick.

"Like I said, no hard feelings"

 
Same here. Man, Sync was creepy. So was Transcend.

Even vasudan ones would do just fine.

:lol:  Do we have any canon evidence that Vasudans even have gender?
aside from the abomination, yes.  Listen to your vasudan wingmates, there is one with a more feminine sounding voice than the others. I think it is the voice that responds with "By your command" when ordered

Me personally, I like the ravana and the Sath the best cuz of the sheer intimidation one felt when they were introduced.  The Rav just jumps in, completely invisible to you, and annihilates a deimos in one blast, severely damaging the other.  The sath utterly shreds the sobek on introduction, and remains"the monster in the mist" for a while, before blowing away the Phoenecia(sp?).  The second sath destroys the Psamtik in seconds, before another one procedes so effotlessly blow away the Collossus in an awe inspiring one sided battle.   Not to mention DIVE DIVE DIVE

maneuverable ? pfffft. Look at the Basilisk or Aeshma (i think thats how its spelt) . I dont know what class of fighters they are (Heavy assault), but they fly like a retarded seagull.

But differences in voice do not necessarily indicate different genders.  Even if they did have gender, we have no evidence to suggest that one gender would have a lower voice than the other.  These are aliens, after all.

Then again, can you state that Vasudans have more than one gender just because in FS2 some Vasudans have a 'feminine' voice? Because that's not actually the Vasudans' voice but the translator/voice synthesizer/whatnot. What if it's just and upgrade made by the Terrans who got sick of listening to the same monotonic voice every time a Vasudan spoke?

Well, just by looking, Vasudans are built rather similar to Humans.  That would lead you to believe that they operate on the same biological principles that we do.

Bah, i'd kick off if i met a Zod. They walk round nekkid too much. How's a scientist meant to develop shields in the fs1 cutscene with a load of alien wing wang flappin about? For the record though i do tend to believe the female translator reflects a female speaker. Albeit in a synthesised voice. :)

Yes the translator in FS1 was all common with the same sound, but in FS2 all the Zods have different voices to give them some individuality.

Simply because not only I command the greatest one ever built, but also because it can hold it's own against practically anything it comes across.  The Hecate is nothing compared to the sleek lines of the Galatea crusing through a colonised system as the worlds below salute the efforts of the GTA.
I reject your reality and substitute my own, hence my existance on the Galatea!
