Obviously if I had to pick one to live on it would be a culture GSV, pretty much invincible and just have dream orgies all day and night. Every ship in OP is just too many rungs down the galactic ladder, and pretty much will end up in battle and getting you killed.

A story I would like to see,

Spaceship are now about controlling gravity using artificial black-hole (refuelled by siphoning matter from stars)
Because those are essentially self-powering they can become world by themselves, free from infrastructure some even became predatory, almost pirate.

However it's very finicky, you can't just increase pseudo-BH indefinitely, the technologies are only suited for some size, you need subsystem and separate pseudo-BH for different use (propulsion, internal gravity, defense,siphoning) and jumping to another system essentially use up a pBH sized for the ship, meaning a worldship can be stranded if the local star is not big enough to be siphoned.

Because enough of those ships can eat a star, some people a lot consider their use must be restricted, by force if necessary.

At the risk of polluting the thread, what do you call SJW trope? On 4chan it's all strawmen by poltard

Take Cowboy Bebop netflix adaptation, anyone sane should know Faye was going to dress nicer, Jet Black skin color is actually funnier that way and Spike was always going to look funky (choosing a japanese actor wouldn't have been my first choice thought).
I can't wait to see Ed, literally meant to be young, androgynous, strange mannered and a misleading name.

btw, you are not allowed to answer this post without posting a spaceship from Cowboy Bebop.

I worked on Cowboy Bebop. I think it was episode 10 or 11. All I remember is Jet slipping off a bar stool and someone in a boat and the window gets shot out, one of those plastic birds that balance and tip forward into a cup, a shot of Fay in a cockpit. A hold shot looking down on the characters with a fan in the foreground slowly spinning. I've only watched CB one time, it wasn't for me. I'm old school so I demand more story with character drama, I'm not into that "American style" one singular story per episode. Its a beautiful looking show, its a milestone to be sure but I really don't get the hype for it. Lets not pollute the thread.

Yea I liked this design.
Mr. Yamane the mechanic designer of CB sat behind me but facing the wall so he had a view of me while I worked. On his desk was the 78 Battlestar Galactica Monogram model, he let me borrow the CD of "The Final Countdown" soundtrack. He was a fantastic artist. Each week for the few weeks that I was there he'd bring in a fully painted Gundam/robot illustration for one of the Mecha, Plamo, Omocha(toy) magazine. They were beautiful. I do have a sketch he did where he redesigned the space ship sketch that I did. He was Incredible.

Too many coomers in this thread. There is a good reason none of the books are about normie culture citizens. Every one has to focus on Special Circumstances or outsiders because the Culturites are spiritually and morally dead and non-actors in their own lives. The books are still good, but you can see Banks contorting himself to ignore the consequences of the world he made. TLDR the Idirans are right. Hydrogen Sonata, Player of Games and Use of Weapons are all legitimately fantastic, though.
