Wow might as well change the topic to FS2 ships.  Where are the options for ships from other mods and total conversions?

Dragon, HercII (even though it's slow and kinda crappy) and Myrm. Would also add the Perseus, but didn't have 4 votes. :)

alright
for me
the GTF Apollo, the best space superiority fighter evaar. Can fit lots of shit as well as have a good shield.
the GTF Valkyrie because speed is important, and iirc it can get to like 100m/s with the right energy settings making it the BEST interceptor
the GTF Erinyes because firepower is also important. Nothing beats shooting down bad guys in 1-3 volleys.

The Perseus is basically a watered-down Valkyrie if you ask me.

Only canon spacecraft have been included. The poll is not limited to FS2, you can see many spacecraft which appeared only in FS1 (Scorpion, Valkyrie, Shaitan...). :)

FS1 strikecraft look like serious business, where I always found FS2 ships to be fanciful.  Craft like the Herc I, Apollo or Medusa are the kind of iconic designs that stand up against other verse's fighters.

"Everyone" is less than half the number of voters. Once again, the community fails at using the term (no offense, it's a funny thing if you get the reference). :p

Well, without mixing personal opinion with facts, I think the Perseus has a shape that makes it closer to airplanes and other starfighters people get to see during their life. Many common spacecraft, like the Myrmidon and Ulysses, have "particular" designs which may not attract the attention of new gamers. Just to mention my personal experience, at the beginning I thought the Myrmidon was weird because it "flied backwards"...

EDIT: I am more concerned at how Shivan designs seem to be underestimated. Either the number of voters who appreciate them is very, very low or the people who voted felt like considering only the spacecraft they got to fly and appreciate.

Also, can someone please the poll's question? The "you" part should be "your"...
