Tie Interceptor, just barely edging out good old fashioned xwings. I think I love how well the interceptor expresses its functions in its visuals. Its got very tight angles and a compact form that give it a sleek but menacing profile, and from top to bottom the things built entirely around offense.

I just love the thought process behind it too, and how it embodies the empire. I always imagine the imperial ship design discussion going something like this:

"Sir our TIE fighters have been suffering heavy losses to newer rebel craft, they're just not holding up."

"Hm, an unsettling trend, I do suppose its time to make some revisions..."

"so add shields and armor to them sir?"

"Preposterous! we don't dispatch sorties to go lose slowly, Our TIE's just aren't deadly enough. Add additional lasers and improve its handling... On second thought, lasers are far to expensive. I've decided! Make it go faster and leave extra laser mounts for any pilots of merit. And make bloody sure it looks scary this time!"

"Of course sir."

I think my favourite ship would be the Slave 1 or the Arc-170, if we're counting the clone wars that is.

I mean the takeoff/landing sequence of the Slave 1 is legendary, mixed with the gyroscopic "wings" if you like, a huge cockpit view, and besides, Jango and Boba are such legends.

You gotta love the bounty hunters.

Nebulon-B Frigate
This has always been my favorite ship.

It has many different variations:
Escort Frigate
Medical Frigate
Command Frigate
Carrier Frigate

It makes for great base hidden in enemy territory to gather intel, launch raids & coordinate battles.
It was sold to both major factions and 3rd parties.

I love all Ships but my favourite is the YT-1300 the "Millenium Falcon" He is the coolest and sexys ship for me because he is a Transporter but a Hunter too. With this ship can destroy ships despite the enormous size.

I have the YT overall on my PC / Internet. As Signature Picture. As Desktop Photo. .....

A-wing is my favourite simply because it's the epitome of a true 'pilot's ship' in my opinion and it's beautiful. A true hotrod with those oversized J-77s pushing it along. I also love the fact that early Rebellion A-wings often were constructed from readily available parts and had wooden parts in their cockpits.

X-wing is my other favourite ship simply because it's beautiful. Actually, I think it's the single most beautifully designed starship I've seen in any universe.
