It has to be a ship in the game from Waves one to Four, including Aces.

My opinion. Base ship, no named pilots.

1) Firespray
2) Phantom
3) Tie Fighter
4) Shuttle
5) Interceptor
6) Everything Else

Top 3 by an absolute hair.. Really depends on the role IMO.

This came up in the Rebel topic. Do not include any upgrade stuff. Just the best ship as is off the deck.

 

The Best...

Which?

When looking at it in a vacuum of no named pilots and no upgrades then my vote would be the good old TIE Fighter.  One of the most points efficient ships in the game, hands down.

 

That being said, it is an unfair comparison to base a purchase of a ship in a vacuum, as named pilots and upgrades come with the ship you are buying and it is unlikely that you will face off against an unmodified Phantom or Shuttle for example. 

So that is my vote with a VERY large caveat.

Firespray.  I'd take 33 points of Firespray against 33 points of any other non-named basic pilot Imperial ship any day.

Definitly the Firespray, the Phantom and Interceptor rely on high PS and pilot/upgrade abilities.

The Tie fighter isn't very good, its just very efficient.

If your only going to get one ship, then for me it's has to be the Advanced.  Darth is a bad ass, and it's more iconic then the other ships.  I would also have to give a nod to the Firespray as a close second.
