Enough about me! On to today's challenge: my favorite ship in the Star Wars movie canon. First, I'd like to talk about the ships from the prequel trilogy. Number one, there was a simplistic beauty in the lived universe that George Lucas created in the originals. Alien continued with that idea with the Nostromo, and then Battlestar Galactica (the reimagined series) perfected it, even creating a new ship out of spare parts and the Chief's brilliance. Number two, I get that the prequels took place in a period of relative peace, but that does not mean that everything was pristine and shiny, like the Naboo cruiser that Padme and her entourage rode in The Phantom Menace. Even the interiors looked like sets, unlike the realism of the Milennium Falcon. It was like we were being told that we were in a fantasy, like in Hollywood films about the Middle Ages where everyone is meticulously clean. It takes me out of the story.
I only bring this up so it's plainly obvious that my favorite ship comes from the original trilogy: the Executor from The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
