  • Spacecrafts that just ooze attention.

    Just for fun, post some of your favourite spacecrafts that refuse to die in your imagination, maybe because they were just so cool to look and demanded attention. I'll post some now, so feel free to post your own.... there is a vast amount of ships to choose from.

                  For me its the Space Battleship Yamato.

                  This is a ship that is just begging to be built from Lego (something I did many times in my youth) , and is perfectly suited to the imagination of a kid, with way too many cool weapons systems piled on top of one another.

                  The weapons frm wiki,

                  The Wave Motion Gun (波動砲 hadō hō?) The "trump card" of the Yamato, the Dimensional Wave Motion Explosive Compression Emitter, or Wave Motion Gun for short, functions by connecting the Wave Motion Engine to the enormous firing gate at the ship's bow, enabling the tachyon energy power of the engine to be fired in a stream directly forwards. As of the 2009 movie, it has six reactors, and it can fire six shots instead of one large one. However, when combined to fire a single shot, it may rip the hull apart. Enormously powerful, it can vaporise a fleet of enemy ships with one shot; however, it takes a brief but critical period to charge before firing. It used to require all non-essential power systems be deactivated, but now it only leaves the ship unable to warp a short time after firing. The recoil absorption mechanism can be manually deactivated with a lever; this was used to save the ship on one occasion.

                  Shock Cannons (ショックカノン?) The three 45.9 cm and two 15.5 cm three-barreled gun turrets of the original Yamato have been converted into powerful energy guns. Each turret fires three energy beams which spiral around each other to form a single, more powerful beam, capable of severely damaging or destroying enemy warships. The cannons are operated by seated human controllers, aiming orders transmitted from Bridge One. In addition to firing energy blasts, the guns can be loaded with other ammunition, most notably cartridges containing the devices used in the Rotating Asteroid Defense (see below). In the movie Be Forever, Yamato they are used to fire missiles containing Wave Motion energy, which even with a hundredth the power of the Wave Motion Gun cause tremendous destruction.

                  Pulse Lasers (パルスレーザー?) Based on the 25 mm and 13 mm anti-aircraft machine guns of the original Yamato, the Pulse Lasers are a set of two- and four-barrelled gun turrets lining the sides of the spaceship, firing energy pulses which can destroy fighters and detonate missiles. The turret clusters generally aim at the same targets; it was not stated in the series whether each contains a gunner, or whether they are controlled from a central source.

                  Torpedo Tubes (艦首ミサイル Kanshu Misairu?) Six forward-firing & six aft-firing torpedo tubes, principally for use underwater. In the 2009 anime, it can fire barrier defense missiles.

                  Side Missiles (両舷側ミサイル Ryōgensoku Misairu?) A set of anti-missile missiles launched from missile ports in the hull of the Yamato; rather than hitting directly, they explode at a safe distance and form an energy web that detonates incoming missiles. (barrier defense missiles)

                  Stack Missiles (煙突ミサイル Entotsu Misairu?) Rocket missiles fired vertically from what was once the smoke stack of the original Yamato.

                  The Black Tigers (ブラックタイガー?)/Cosmo Tigers (コスモタイガー?)
                  and Cosmo Pulsar Bombers. A fleet of fighter planes, contained within a hangar in the ship's rear underside. The Black Tiger fighters of the first season are superseded by the Cosmo Tigers of the second season, though both seasons feature the Cosmo Zero fighter piloted by Susumu Kodai (Derek Wildstar in Star Blazers), which was usually launched from one of the catapults on the top deck near the stern.


                  Rotating Asteroid Defence (アステロイド防衛 Asteroid Bōei?) Used in the first and second seasons, this involves using the Shock Cannons to fire showers of small metal probes into asteroid fields; these devices are magnetically controlled and can bring the asteroids close to the ship, forming a hard shell resistant to enemy fire. This can then be turned into a fast-rotating orbiting ring, its angle controlled from the bridge, which can be used to block individual shots. As a final act, the asteroids can be expelled at high speed in all directions to destroy any ships that venture too close.
