Most and least favorite ships.

Favorite for practical or completely superfluous reasons like looks or "immersion factor":
Krait both variants, Courier, Orca, Cutter(don't even own one now), FAS, Mamba, Cobra both variants, Adder, Anaconda, FGS, iEagle.
Least favorite:
Most Lakon ships especially T-* line, special mention for ASPX for ruining many great screenshots, Clipper, Python, Beluga, Vulture.
 
Ships I love:

1. Krait Phantom <- the best
2. Imperial Courier
3. Imperial Cutter
4. Mamba

Ships I like:

This list ended up encompassing half the ships in the game, so I truncated it down to my top 5 in this category.

1. Imperial Eagle
2. Orca
3. Anaconda
4. DBX
5. FDS

And finally, ships I irrationally dislike:

Python
Keelback

Have you ever flown the beluga?
 
Have you ever flown the beluga?
I haven't really flown any of the Saud K. ships. Have been playing ED since Oct 2019, so cash is not in abundance either. I am also not really into Large ships. I keep only 2 ships at a time, one for personal use(DBX) and the other to pretend I am in Firefly world. :D

But I keep hearing people talking about Beluga. One of this days I may have to go for a test drive. Isn't it mostly a Passenger ship?
 
...Of course im sure you all know what my favorite ships are....
Well I don't, so share away buddy!

Default ship of choice for a while
Python - 'Pink Panther'* does everything that I want, and perhaps a bit too well. That the larger ships can't dock at outposts is a 'deal breaker' for me as outposts are imho the most fun to dock at.

My favourites
T6 - I have spent more time in 'Trundle' than any other ship. Everything is A-rated, it has a fabulous cockpit view, is deceptively nimble, boosts all day, and I still use it for passenger missions. This boat is (imho) the absolute best value for money 'early' ship for everything except combat.
Cobra III - every time I get in the 'Fussy Buzzer' I turn the volume up to 11, hit boost and grin - 'nuff said.
DBX - 'Longbow' is (now) my go-to explorer. An amazing jump range, with just enough slots it's just a shame that it doesn't have the T6 cockpit. Oh well.

Honourable mentions
DBS - 'Kitty's Got Claws' is just a joy to fly, fast and nimble enough with excellent weapon placement to make combat an absolute hoot, yet vulnerable enough to make it scary too. Coming back with a blown cockpit is 'always fun'.
FAS - 'Lapsed Pacifist' is a joy to use for risky missions, or just melting NPCs at a haz-res. Sometimes I even have to look up from doing a Sodoku.
Cobra IV - 'Oh-Oh' is a great wee ship as long as I think of her as a mini Python, for only then does everything make sense.
Sidewinder - 'Ms Swan' is there when I want to travel to pick up a new ship. Stripped back to bare bones with a fuel scoop it's always brilliant to be back in a Sidey

Owned Unused
Anaconda - no matter how I try 'Geraldine' just doesn't connect, and I only use her grudgingly. There's nothing really wrong with this boat, it's good at everything and I have some nice paints and the ship-kit (I love the 'armour' near the cockpit), and in combat she's formidable with turrets... but... the thing is... I just don't connect with her and to be honest I should sell her.

Sold
Dolphin - it was fun but 'meh'.

Sold Never to Re-buy
Asp Explorer - I disliked this one so much I named her 'I Never Loved You' and promptly sold her. No where near better enough than my T6 for trading and it looks like a cow-pat.

* why the 'Pink Panther'?

Its supposed to be, but itll happily do anything you want it to and more
 
Well if I'm being childish, trite, and annoying...

Most

Keelback it's my space ute
Crusader looks cool slf bay, srv bay hooning on and around planets.
Dollphin smooth flying in SC little space yatch

Least
Hauler ...I love the ship, it just sounds like you are hauling pigs. All of the time

T7 should be the biggest medium cargo boat, not the smallest big ship.

Haven't flown anywhere near all of them, l like them or not for practical reasons not for brand or colour, or popularity. Now those might be childish reasons

Nah, those are solid reasons :) Flying what feels best always works out better for me than something based on pure parameters. How the cockpit looks, how it sounds, if it looks good on "insert ship name in front of stuff" screenshots.
