** A fairly normal feature is a computerized surface that can be used to customize any imagery the captain desires. Similar features are available on several of the bulkheads. Thus even fairly ordinary Starships can look cool

** The ''other'' [[http://wiki.travellerrpg.com/Lightning_class_Frontier_Cruiser Lightning Class]], a [[TheBattlestar battlestar]] built around a [[WaveMotionGun spinal-mounted meson accelerator]]. One specific example, the ''Emissary'', which was 'accidentally' sold to a MerchantPrince still armed, and protected his ships from [[SpacePirate Vargr]].

* [[http://toonbarn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/Aya-in-Frontier-Space.jpg Aya the Interceptor]] from the [[GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries Green Lantern animated series]] is a Green Lantern ''starship''. Oh, and it's the fastest thing ever created by sentient beings.

* The Soyuz is an example of BoringButPractical, but that hasn't stopped it becoming a reliable spacecraft that has ferried cosmonauts and astronauts to various space stations for the last 30 years, and at a fraction of the cost per launch of the Space Shuttle orbiter.

** The Tholian Recluse Carrier is a player favorite for being incredibly badass. Players have more recently gained access to the [[AlwaysABiggerFish even more imposing]] [[MileLongShip Tholian Tarantula Dreadnought]], complete with its signature [[WaveMotionGun Tholian Web Cannon]].



** There's also Lockbox and Lobi ships, specialized craft from an enemy faction, like the Tal Shiar Adapted Destroyer and Adapted Battlecrusier, which are basically Romulan ships outfitted with Borg technology that makes them look like the feared ''Naranda''.

** UsefulNotes/NeilDeGrasseTyson's Ship of the Imagination is a {{Shiny Looking Starship|s}} with a sleek design and sometimes acts as a mirror to whatever splendors are around it. Like Sagan's, it can go anywhere and anywhen. The big circular viewscreen in the floor is omnipresent, but it always shows the past--the viewscreen in the ceiling, potential futures.

* One wouldn't expect starships to show up in what is generally a MedievalEuropeanFantasy series like ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', but one would be wrong. In background lore, during the Second Cyrodiilic Empire in the late 1st Era, the Imperials were in a space race to explore Aetherius (the realm of magic) against the [[OurElvesAreBetter Altmer (High Elves)]] of the Aldmeri Dominion. The Imperials used magical "Mothships" manned by the Imperial Royal [[SomethingNauts Mananauts]], with both sides setting up colonies on the moons of Nirn.

* Creator/FrankHerbert's other series, starting with Destination: Void, includes a ship which becomes self-aware and omnipotent. It refers to itself as Ship. Also, from the same author, Spacing Guild Heighliners from ''Franchise/{{Dune}}''. Massive cargo ships several miles long that are the only things in that wold capable of FTLTravel.
