Science Fiction Ships

Whilst real-life ships are really cool, they can’t really compare to some of the weird, wonderful and downright gorgeous spacecraft seen in science fiction. So we rounded up the best wallpapers of science fiction ships we could find for you to enjoy.

We’ve had enough of monsters, time for some heroes. What better than the TARDIS, the improbably-sized timeship of the Doctor. It’s taken him throughout all of time and space, from the very birth of the Universe to the last days, when the cosmos is winding down to die, 100 trillion years in the future. She […]

Pegasus’ Last Stand

We jump across to Battlestar Galactica for today’s wallpaper, to the Battle of New Caprica. The Galactica fought bravely against four-to-one odds but was being blasted to pieces. Just when it seemed she was doomed, one of the Cylon Basestars exploded, heralding the thunderous arrival of Pegasus. Commanded by Lee Adama, the mighty ship was […]

Fighting the Borg

War has come to the skies of Earth, as a single massive Borg cube has penetrated deep into the Federation’s defences. Starfleet valiantly tries to hold the line but is forced back again and again. The USS Defiant proves her worth, surviving the entire battle and inflicting considerable damage on the Borg vessel. Here we […]

WE’re sticking with Star Trek but we’ve gone back in time a few decades, to this (imaginary) battle in 2285. The USS Enterprise, under Admiral James T Kirk, is ambushed at close range by the renegade USS Reliant, which has been seized by Khan Noonien Singh, a genetically-engineered superman from Earth’s darkest period. Khan has […]

Open Fire!

We travel across a few million light-years for today’s sci-fi wallpaper. It’s the USS Defiant, designed and built by Benjamin Sisko to fight the Borg. It only met the Borg once but she did much better than most of the other starships present. She had much better luck against the Dominion, where she proved to […]

Battle over Coruscant

Disaster! The Separatists have assembled a huge fleet and used secret hyperlanes to attack Coruscant, the capital of the Republic. The fleet battle overhead is cover for the kidnapping of the Chancellor, but the Home Fleet, supported by the Open Circle Fleet commanded by Obi-Wan Kenobi have rushed to engage the enemy before they can […]

Battle of Endor

Our sci-fi ships theme flies off to a galaxy far, far away for today’s wallpaper, featuring an early moment from the climactic Battle of Endor. The Rebel Fleet, realising the unfinished Death Star II is nonetheless fully operational, hastily disengages and turns away, only to find the massed Star Destroyers of the Imperial Starfleet waiting […]

Ancient Warship

Our Stargate Atlantis theme moves ever onwards. Appropriately enough today’s wallpaper shows a mighty Aurora-class warship, built by the Ancients to defend their empire against the Wraith, about to leap into hyperspace, heading for a battle against implacable enemies. These ships carried very powerful shields, letting them stay in a fight far longer than other […]

Wraith Harvesting Fleet

We move across to the Pegasus Galaxy and Stargate Atlantis for today’s wallpaper, showing the terrifying sight of two Wraith Hive Ships and their escorting cruisers advancing over Atlantis. The Siege has begun and the intrepid defenders of the city must hold out until the cavalry arrives. But against such enemies, the price will be […]

Asgard in Battle

Our Stargate theme continues, this time with a cracking wallpaper showing an Asgard Beliskner-class mothership, under the leadership of Supreme Commander Thor,  engaging the Goa’uld Ha’tak commanded by Osiris. Thor has come to defend one of the Protected Planets in the Milky Way, worlds that the Goa’uld are not permitted to visit. This would usually […]

USS Daedalus

We return to our sci-fi ships category, and Stargate in particular. This incredible image shows the USS Daedalus ready for battle. These ships are far smaller than most of the enemies they face, but thanks to their highly advanced technology they are able to hold their own in a fight far better than most people […]

Fleeing Jupiter

Our Space Odyssey goes on with this amazing image from near the end of Odyssey Two; the Monoliths have acted at last, compressing Jupiter until it explodes into a new star. Dave Bowman, now a part of the Monolith, was able to warn the crew of the Leonov, but that had to sacrifice the Discovery, […]

Approaching Discovery

We move on from 2001 to 2010, the sequel to the original groundbreaking film. This sequel, which is based on Arthur C Clarke’s second book in the Space Pdyssey series, brings Heywood Floyd out to Jupiter to discover exactly what happenned nine years before. What happenned aboard Dicovery, what made HAL go crazy, where did […]

Approaching the Monolith

Today we have one more wallpaper from 2001 A Space Odyssey. This time it shows the excavation team, led by Doctor Heywood Floyd, surveying the recently excavated Monolith, although know it as TMA-1 (for Tycho Magnetic Anomaly). It’s a historic moment, Man’s first encounter with a confirmed alien artifact. The Monolith is perhaps the epitome […]

Clavius Base

Whilst we’re on the subject of 2001, we couldn’t resist sharing this wonderful still from the same film. It isn’t strictly a spacecraft but it’s amazing nonetheless. Three astronauts working on the Moon’s surface in the hills around Clavius Base take a short break to watch a transport vessel on it’s way in to land. […]
