I'd say Red Dwarf, but the scale would be wrong. Maybe in Armada...

+1 for the Eagle Transporter, my favourite Sci-Fi ship.

The eagle is an awesome ship, but doesn't really fit in with the other ships in the game, it would get demolished almost immediately.

Sadly that is true. I made a model of it im rather proud of in almost the correct scale. But for this game it would be pointless. An Eagle would last no time against even the simplest SW ship

That's a great Eagle, well done.

 

The Eagle would be competitive in the game. It just needs the special rule "Infinite".

Moonbase Alpha seemed to have a never ending stock of them.

Thank you.

That could work. They are very easy to replace and do have lasers that seem to destroy anything they hit. They can also make 15 percent of lightspeed which is pretty respectable...although it takes a while to reach it. The Hawk is supposed to be twice as fast and better armed though

A fully infested spacy hulk.

Not nuffin any of you can do can stop a (mostly) red spacy hulk! And once we crash...well now you got a ork and nid infestation to deal with.

Uh, The Arwing from Star Fox? 

Does that count?

I can't think of anything from a TV show or movie that I'd want in here...

But yeah, The Arwing (Star Fox), The Normandy (mass effect), or the Fuseli (Starslip) because Vanderbeam.

Space 1999, was one of my favorite Sci-Fi shows. This series really got my hooked on Sci-Fi.
 
I think we should build an eagle. The Eagle is like a Volkswagen Van, you can modify so many ways. 
 
The dial would be like the Lamda shuttle, but no red maneuvers, with the exception on a 1 turn.
 
The Basic Model
 
Primary Weapon Value = 2
Agility = 1
Hull = 4
Shields = 0
 
Upgrades:  
 
Cannon Upgrade
System Upgrade
Crew Upgrade
Crew Upgrade
 
This would be the basic model
 
 
The "War Version"  would have named pilots
 
Alan Carter PS9 :Ability can preform one free evade per attack.
John  Koenig PS8: Ability, All Eagle with range 1 or 2 have their Pilot skill Increased by 2
Bill Fraser PS7: Ability, Ship adds the boost ability to it's action bar.
Elite Pilot Upgrade
 
Missile Upgrade
Missile Upgrade
 
Crew Upgrade card might read light
 
Sandra Benes: Ship gain a System Upgrade
Victor Bergman: Ships that fire at a vessel equipped with Victor Bergman have the Primary Weapon value reduced by one.
Maya, She can mimic any crew upgrade card in play

Rebel Alliance: 2 X-wings, 1 Y-wing, 2 A-wing, 2 B-wing, 1 Hwk-290, 1 Yt-1300, 1 E-wing, 1 Yt-2400
Imperial Navy: 4 Tie Fighters, 3 Tie Interceptors, 1 Tie Advanced, 1 Tie Bomber, 1 Lambda, 1 Firespray-31, 1 Tie Defender, 1 Tie Phantom, 1 VT-49 Decimator

How about the Discovery One?

 

Crew: HAL 9000

Cost: 0

Action: Discard another Crew card, because they will probably get in the way.

They are not designed primarily for combat but with skilled pilots can fight even Hawks  effectively. I think Alan Carter took out 5 Hawks in 1 Eagle....then probably crashed it *L*

And if Eagles etc are involved why not bring in UFO The SHADO interceptor could be fun  and the Hawk was originally designed for the same purpose

Correct, The Hawk was the fighter version of the Eagle. I kind of think the Eagle is like a Huey Helicopter . During the show there "militarized" a few eagles. I really think that this would be really fun to play, Oh well.

CHP-W10 Chippewa Heavy Fighter (a House Davion variant), from BattleTech. 2 missile slots, 1 cannon slot, a whole heck of a lot of hull, no shields, and both good base attack and good agility. It'd include a pretty solid dial, too (PS 8 [Insert Davion Named Pilot here], PS 7 Cassandra Blake, PS 5 Michael Gladstone, PS 2 AFFS Aerospace Pilot).

 

I'd also love to see a Sith Fury (PS9 Darth Occlus, PS 7 Emperor's Wrath, PS 5 Sith Assassin, PS 3 Sith Marauder).

 

If we're restricted to TV shows, then I'm thinking of any of the following:

 

SA-43 Hammerhead Endo/Exo-Atmospheric Attack Jet (Space: Above and Beyond)

 

Starfury (Babylon 5), possibly including some or all of the variants in an entire series of ships.

 

Gunstar (The Last Starfighter), including a title Gunstar One, equipped with a Death Blossom (maybe some kind of unique upgrade slot that only has one upgrade).
