10. Great Fox, from the Star Fox series

The Great Fox serves as the mobile base of Fox McCloud’s elite mercenary team Star Fox. With a height of almost 3000 feet, it seems at first a bit excessive in size when you consider that it only serves as home to 4 crew members at most (five if you include ROB 64, but he’s not technically alive, or Prince Tricky but let’s not talk about him). When you think about it though, it needs to be quite big. Not only does it hold the team, but also their Arwings (of which there are more than four if you include spares), the Landmaster, and the Blue Marine. It probably has the capacity to hold more people, for example Slippy Toad’s wife, but much like with the U.S.S. Enterprise-D, do you really want civilians on a vessel of war?

It’s twin laser cannons are powerful enough that it can punch though force fields, and it can even keep up with the Arwing’s top speeds, when it’s not travelling at the speed of light, that is. ROB 64’s artificial intelligence can even operate the Great Fox when nobody else is on board, technically making it full autonomous, and able to provide backup fire and emergency supplies when Fox and the gang are out battling. Unfortunately, the Great Fox was destroyed shortly after being refitted during the events of Star Fox: Assault, and replaced with the considerably less than majestic Great Fox II. The less said about that horrible thing, the better.

A big down side to this vessel, however, is its cost; it was so expensive that apparently, James McCloud had to take out an 80-year loan just to oversee its completion. This does lead me to propose that James isn’t really dead, and that it was just an elaborate ploy to avoid paying all that money back.
