5 Fandom Friday - Fictional Vehicles!

5 Fandom Friday is a link-up hosted by The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick. You can see the upcoming prompts here at the master post. This week's topic is Five Fictional Vehicles I'd Love To Travel In

Serenity (Firefly) - Like any good sci-fi cast, the crew of the Serenity becomes a family (that's basically the theme of the show and movie), and I absolutely love them. Plus, they get to have Western-style adventures like train heists on terraformed planets. 

Millenium Falcon (Star Wars) - As long as Han Solo is in the captain's seat and Chewie is at his side, I would feel safe going anywhere on the most recognizable spaceship in sci-fi. Added bonus: Batman might visit.

The Jolly Roger (Once Upon a Time) - Captain Hook is my favorite Once character, and the ship is a home, a status symbol, and his most precious possession - when he finally admitted that he sold it to get to Emma, it was basically his way of saying he loved her. The Jolly Roger is great for going through portals, avoiding dragons, and catching mermaids.

The Flying Ford Anglia (Harry Potter) - When the Weasleys show up at your window to rescue you in a flying car, you go with them. End of story, even if the car's flying abilities are questionable.

The Rampion (Lunar Chronicles) - Can a spaceship be cute? I think that in this case it can - it's described as a little round cargo ship with a scandalous lady painted on the side by Captain Thorne à la the Memphis Belle, its model name is a Rapunzel shout-out, and it's temporarily controlled by sassy android Iko. Really, I just want to hang out with Cinder, Kai, Thorne, Cress, Scarlet, and Wolf as they plan a revolution.

Coincidentally, last week Sploid posted an infographic comparing the traveling speeds of real and fictional spaceships. Which of these vehicles would you want to travel in? Are there any great ones I left out?
