No Enterprise? Blasphemy.

Shouldn't the Falcon, and the Imperial ship be on opposite sides?

There should have been two shirts one with "bad guy" ships and one with "good guy" ships.

I don't know.

Thanks to everyone who voted and to woot for the print! I admit to calling miss and moving the Tardis several times.

Thanks! I echo the sentiment on the woot write up. Laughed out loud at the last couple lines.

True. Then the Enterprise and Borg Cube could have been there.

Then the Peacekeeper Command Ship could be opposite Moya (Leviathan).

Love seeing a Leviathan on the board.

Even though it would hurt to see it, seems like Serenity should be the one ship that is completely shot down...

I'm glad you said this. If you hadn't, I wouldn't have scrolled all the way down to see them.

Wonderful idea, and congratulations on your Derby win!!!

That's OK, it has more holes on the inside.

Congrats on the win, kg07! Well-deserved. I'm thinking this one will be in the top 20 for a while.

Ouch. I could lie and say that this is an Easter egg to be found by Star Wars fans, but not the case. I was playing around with the placement of the ships for design reasons and mirrored the falcon layer to place it in the lower right without thinking it through. Nice catch. Hope it does not wreck the shirt for anyone.

thanks for the nice words. There were so many awesome entries that I am shocked to have made the top 3 on this one. Hopefully a lot of these entries will get printed.

The original had the Enterprise. Unfortunately, the base is so narrow, it kept falling over (and did not look quite right).

No stress; Technically, most of the big Star Wars fans should be at least somewhat forgiving - The Falcon was one of literally dozens of configurations for Corellian freighters (Which is also what Han Solo was flying in the latest film: Ep. VIII The Force Awakens... It was just a much newer model, but same manufacturer). But one of appeals of the Falcon-era ships was the ability to customise; Some had the cockpit on the left, right, and some even in the middle. So, the Falcon just happened to be one possible choice.

But kudos to you for the catch and admission prior to some goofball ripping you a new one.

And props on the win. It's a great idea. Hope to see more from you in the future, though I'll echo some of the others in saying that it could have been cool to have a mated pair - one for "good guys", and one for the "bad guys"... But well done, nonetheless! ;)

I've got to ask... what is the ship that has been "destroyed?" I know all of the others, and they've all been named here in the comments (FYI for those who don't know, "Moya" is the name of the ship on the left, it's from Farscape).

The ship 'sunk' at the top is an old-style Cylon Raider from Battlestar Galactica.

Thanks for the support and nice words (although technically someone did catch my error earlier in the comments). I originally tried to get both sides on one shirt (good vs bad) but the design did not work out.

I laughed, but then I realized that they had both just tried the entire board.

A dimwitted pair if neither was able to accuse the other of cheating before trying every combination. There are well over 20 spaces--two whole rows--taken up by ships.
