Hi guys, after numerous feedback about the top 25, we're going to be changing their look and making them more reader interactive. Therefore I'd love to know what your favourite space craft is.

It has got to be the spacecraft in the shoot em'up 'Blaze On' as it can morph into a flying macross style robot once collected a power up.

In terms of aesthetics I still like the 1950's style spaceship in the original Scramble.
Other than that its a toss up between RTypes classic R9 fighter and the Bunny Girl on a rocket from Parodius, in fact just about any of the 'ships' from Gokujou Parodius in particular.

Probably the one from Blasteroids - being able to morph into different ships depending on the situation (more speed , firepower or armour) made the game much more tactical

Oooh , or the Spaceship that attacked you in Battlezone - loved the fizzing/spitting sound it made as it homed in on you

TIE Fighter I think. I still have my original die cast model from when I was a kid on top of my PC.

Hmm, the Vic Viper has always been a favourite but i like the Manta class fighters too... how about the camel in Revenge of the Mutant Camels 2? =-)

The one in Ordyne, mainly because you can see the guy sat in it.

The naked winged chick in Insects in Space. Obvious reasons.

It may be very predictable, but by an absolute mile I would pick the R9. Its so cool it gives me a semi.

As mentioned above, the Manta from Uridium, fast sleek and able to turn on a sixpence if controlled correctly.

Battle Squadron on the Amiga - loved the ship in that, though Project X must come close

It's got to be the R9 from R-type.
