Unfortunately, I don't think there was a Dr Who movie, but it there was, a TARDIS would win, hands down:
1. It travels in space and time.
2. When the function works, it assumes the shape of an object common to its surroundings to disguise itself (chameleon circuit).
3. It'* bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.

Hahha, I'm a well balanced nerd though. Go figure as I watch the end of Star Trek: Nemesis.

The U.*.*. Enterprise , no bloody A,B,C, D or E was in the first two Star Trek movies, in her refit form, so I think that'* pretty accurate. Although the Soveriegn class "E" owns them all.

Gotta agree with Jim W on the Defiant though, that thing kicked ***, tough little ship. Actually been considering "Defiant" as a nick name for my Jeep.

You took that line from Scotty from the TNG episode relics.

The "no bloody A,B,C, D or E" part is kinda debateable. When the first movie came out, a lot of "Technical" releases said that due to the modifications, it was given a new class. It went from being a Constitution Class Heavy Cruiser, to an Enterprise Class Heavy Cruiser.

But, since then, it seems like it has shifted back to being just a modified Constitution Class...

That'* the part I've always loved about Star Trek. Stuff wasn't just made up. It was made up with a decent, believable technical background for us Trekkers...

Now, on to the debate of Trekkie vs Trekker....
