What would Star Wars be without the many cool space ships that populate its universe? From starfighters to military cruisers and worn hunks of junk that separate Star Wars from the chrome aesthetic of countless other sci-fi stories, this vast armada is a true marvel of cinema and the science fiction genre.
Since the release of A New Hope in 1977, we've seen plenty of awesome ships on screen, on book covers, and in comic book panels. Who can forget the first time he/she laid eyes on an X-Wing as it prepared to attack the Death Star? Or the Millennium Falcon, as it made its escape from Tatooine? You can't possibly forget the cry of a TIE fighter once you've heard it.
We love so many of these ships that we've decided to list our favorites in no kind of particular order. We're not ranking them. We just want to appreciate one of the best aspects of Star Wars. Oh, and we're looking at both Legends and new canon ships. Because continuity doesn't really matter in this case. That said, we'll warn you now that you won't see the Death Star or Starkiller Base on this list. One's a space station and the other is an ice planet. Not the same thing. That's not to say they're not the coolest things ever, though!
