    We now come to our first semi-final, which the poll will remain open for 2 days, we have the Thunderchild up against Enterprise E, to get here, the Thunderchild has taken out 2 other ships with the name Enterprise, while the Enterprise E has had a much easier run to get here! Will the Thunderchild make it a hattrick? Or will the Enterprise E avenge all those who came before it?

    I have to give this one to the Enterprise E.

    Technologically, they're both very similar as they are from the same era, but the Enterprise has faced up against the Scimitar and (albiet through a lot of luck), was able to prevail. This suggests the ship is made of some stern stuff

    As much as I really want to kill everyone's brackets, and as much as I think the Akira is an awesome class of ships, I have to go with the Sovereign.

    I have been meaning to mention this, but the Akira always seemed like a NX and Miranda had a baby.

    Anyway, I vote Sovereign/Enterprise; my reason is because Starfleet has always chosen to make the Enterprise in any era to be the premier top of the line ship of that time/era and has always been referred to as the "Flagship of the Federation"; so it would make common sense that the Enterprise have the best of the best of that era.

    The OG Enterprise wasn't anything special. Heck, even the C and D were run-of-the-mill examples of their classes. The B was a watered down version of the Excelsior.

    The Enterprise wasn't a flagship until the D. Even then, it wasn't anything special - as a ship. The Yamato could have just as easily been the flagship. Or even the Thunderchild. It's not the ship, it's the crew. The flag follows the person. It's like Air Force One. Put the D's crew on the Yamato and it becomes the flagship.

    Just saying.

    I think in one of the recent episodes of Strange New Worlds, Pike actually does refer to the ship as the flagship, as does the JJ-verse. To your point though, the flag could be transferred over time. The 1701-A was already outclassed by designs like the Excelsior when it was christened and was given to Kirk as a demotion, it is hard to picture the B being Starfleet's best from the noob captain we saw in Generations, and we similarly don't have a lot to tell us about C except for the little bit we saw in TNG. Thus, the flagship label probably does follow the commander, not the ship, and not everyone that gets an Enterprise is that flag bearing commander.

    Sorry for the delay in closing this, I have been quite busy recently! The result has finished 20 to 2 in favour of the Enterprise E, the Thunderchild was unable to take another scalp here!
