We’re halfway through the first round of deciding which fictional spaceship is the coolest of all time. We started out with 64 contenders vying for the title, and it’s time to whittle that number down even further so we that can move on to the next round. Let’s vote.

The first part of Round 1 went pretty much as expected. The higher seed triumphed in every contest in Region 1 although it was an extremely close fight between the Culture Ships and Starbug. Only 2 votes separated the them! Over in Region 3 there were a couple upsets with Gunstar overcoming the Pillar of Autumn and Milano triumphing over Justice of Toren.
