The Tenth Big Damn Hero Gets to Be Ninth...and Called a Metal Baby Chicken?! UGO's Jordan Hoffman has compiled a list of the top 100 spacecraft in movies, with our beloved mid-bulk transport pulling ninth place between Sunshine's Icarus II and "Antarea's Vessel" from Cocoon. Though the good Mr. Hoffman basically uses the entire blurb provided to him to remark about Serenity looking like metal poultry.
The list, covering quite a span of cinematic history, seems to name-check both the common crowd pleasers and the more esoteric when it comes to movie space travel options. The comments at the site relating to list mark down a few missing options but I have to note they're mainly big names in television space transport.
Oh, and in case you're wondering? Mal might have beaten Han Solo in the "Best Movie Smuggler" contest at Hal-Con, but Han's ride once again trounced the competition by getting the top slot on this list. Guess being armed and FTL-capable can sway a man's mind, huh?
