Spaceship Alphabet (after Scott Markley)

Saw the picture below at, and liked it so much, I had to make some bad rhymes.

A is for Andromeda
(Its captain was Herc)
B is for Bebop
(Spike Spiegel’s a jerk)

C is for Challenger
Retired now – so sad
D is for Destiny
Seeding Stargates like mad

E is for Enterprise
With an awesome warp drive
F is for Fireball

G’s for Galactica
The cylon attacker
H is for Heart of Gold
Stolen by Zaphod, a slacker

I is for Ishimura
A ship of great cost
J is for Jupiter 2
In space it got lost

K is for Korolev
Crewed by Russia’s best
L is for Lexx
Where they’re not always dressed

M is for Millennium Falcon
A smuggler of fame
N is for Normandy
From from the video game

O is for Orion
Not yet completed
P is for Pillar of Autumn
Which went down undefeated

Q is for Quinjet
Built by Tony Stark
R for Red Dwarf
A sad sort of Ark

S is for Serenity
(Ironically – so frantic)
T is for Tardis
Its inside’s gigantic

U is for Unity
Which will re-seed our race
V is for Voyager
As homeward they chase

W is for Watchtower
The League has got clout
X is for X-Wing
Red Leader, pull out!

Y is for Yamato
Of considerable size
Z is for Zero-x
From those Thunderbirds guys
