In our opinion the Enterprise D was the perfect Federation starship.  The Enterprise D wasn’t built for battle, it was built for exploration and diplomacy and it carried those missions out flawlessly.

The Enterprise D, like much of Star Trek: The Next Generation was a perfected and finely crafted final version of Gene Roddenberry’s vision for the future that he laid out in the original Star Trek series. It was a close call on whether the D or original Enterprise would make the top spot, but in the end the Enterprise D won the day.

Next: Will Nathan Fillion be Star Trek Discovery's captain?
