October 31, 2012

Hey guys! I just realized this was on a facebook page, but it wasn’t the updated one! Here is the updated one.

The immensely talented David Lomax posted this to the comments and I had to share it.
“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
X.L.5.

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”

He also encouraged me to check out him and his son’s DC alphabet, and I did and it rocked. http://youtu.be/25M96u9i3AQ

So, where’s the non-updated one at full resolution?

chris the cynic

Sadly the non-updated one doesn’t exist anymore in a full rez! I overwrote the save file with the newer version. Ooops! I’ll see if I can recreate it. Any reason you want the old one?

scott

Hey, where can I buy this poster?

Gunner

Sadly I am not allowed to sell it! I can email you the full rez photo if you would like it though.

scott

Your original made a very massive mistake… that is NOT Jetfire, that is a Robotech/Macross Veritech/Valkyrie. How the heck you managed to make *that* mistake is beyond me. And while Voyager is a good addition, you already have one Star Trek reference… howzabout putting in something from Robotech/Macross… such as a Veritech/Valkyrie. You’re sporting an awfully huge hole in Sci-Fi if you don’t have at least one Robotech reference.

René Kåbis

I’d love a full rez photo. My sons (5 and 9) will completely dig on this!

dkundargi

This is really fantastic but where’s the Eagle from Space 1999 ??!!

deena

I’d seriously love the full-rez image too. I so want it for my little boy’s bedroom!

Laura

Enterprise definitely trumps Eagle lol

scott

Wow, you are an angry person. You should really chill out. I’m normally fine with people pointing out mistakes, but your tone is quite abrasive. Perhaps learn to just enjoy something rather than picking holes?

scott

“Enterprise definitely trumps Eagle”…LOL. What can I say:-) I was a bigger fan of Space 1999!

deena

Lol I just realized when i hit reply it just puts it down on the list. My angry comment was to Rene. To you deena I say that I should have said “Enterprise is more iconic” lol. But to each their own.

scott

Also, to Rene. http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Jetfire_(G1) Bam. It was Jetfire. As a Macross jet. So we both win.

scott

Can you send me the high res version, This would make a great present for my son.

Paul

Can I please get a full rez version of this as well! This is awesome.

Thanks
Michelle

Michelle

Oh Gosh yes, please post a high-res on this…I so want to be able to hang this up in my office…

Charis Wilson

Personally, I would have loved to have seen the PUV James Keeling represented in there!

I need this picture!! It is so brilliant! Totally loves it!

cider89

Would love the full Rez version.

Giselle Nevada

Hi there, wonderful poster, could I get a full res copy please ?

pretty please ? :-)

Scott

Nice! Would also suggest adding the Discovery One. Just sayin….

Gaz

I very much need this image! Are you still willing to email the full res to people asking? I think I just found my Christmas gift for my bf, if I can figure out how to print it! :)

PJ

that is bad photoshop and font selection

onelung

Thank you for the critique. Sadly it is not photoshop, as photoshop is expensive. It is simple copy and paste. So to call it bad photoshop is… well.. incorrect. Also, I happen to like the font. If it is not to your liking feel free to make your own. I was just trying to share something that made me happy.

scott

it’s awesome! Can you email a hi-rez version? Thanks!

Venjack

Also. That is bad grammar and sentence structure. (To onelung)

scott

This is amazing. Can you please email me a hi-res version?

Tornado

Pleaae can you email me his res version of this poster …what a great idea…my boy would love it in his room.
Thanks for all the hard work making it too.

Can I get the full res version?

JP

Love this poster. What a great idea. If you are able to email out a high res I will have it printed and put it in my high school english class. Great work!

Craig

hey, could you email a copy to me? saw it on io9!

wes

Could you email me a copy of the alphabet poster? My 3 boys will love it. Thanks! Love the site! Found you through Io9

james

I know some boys that would love this, can you send me a copy?

Joseph S

D for Destiny from Stargate Infinity!
I feel there is a better choice.
D for Discovery One of 2001: A Space Odyssey. For one, the design of Discovery One is far more iconic than the pizza slice of Destiny.

Pierre-Luc Gagné

Saw this on Flipboard. Would love a copy

TnEnder

Great poster, saw it on io9. I’ll take a hi-rez if you’re still offering… if not then I’ll still be happy for seeing it here.

Jerry

I love this!

But I have one question… Isn’t the Quinjet atmospheric only, and therefore NOT a “space”ship?

I know Q is tough to find…

Koeslag

http://marvel.wikia.com/Quinjet apparently ultra large quinjets were used in space. But you are right.

scott

[...] 4, 2012 Many of you are here from io9 for the starship alphabet. Have no fear you can find it here. But still feel free to read the comic too! It’s worth it! I [...]

Unconscious 180 « Time for Hugs!

There are some very unmannered people commenting here. All I can say is, if you think you can do better, by all means show us your work. Personally, I think this is wonderful and would very much like the hi-res version, if that is still on offer.

Ray Martin

I liked the Liberator in the first version better than Lexx. I did think you should have used the UFO’s from UFO as “U”. Glad the revised version includes the Whitestars.

James

Do you know your sci-fi spaceship ABCs?

Saw this via io9 – simply smashing! May I have a high-res version too please? (Simply ‘cos I want to annoy all my children!- they don’t like sci-fi – strange creatures!)

Carole-Ann

Awesome work there, may I have a full-res copy for my son (not quite old enough yet, but I want to start early :) ?

I do agree on Destiny though – Discovery is more iconic imho. Nevertheless, a fine piece of art!

James

Hi, wondering of you could email me the picture? Would be super cool for my little cousins (6) Christmas . . . Although his dad may appreciate it more.
Thanks! X

Rebecca

“Galactica” should be a G, not a B. They also spelled “Millennium” incorrectly.

I love it! This is just amazing.
May I please have a full-res version?

Challenger did not retire. She died with her crew. I recommend you alter your poetry.

Dude

Ummm… did you even look at the page Chuck?

Good comebacks Scott,sometimes you cant please any of the people any of the time. You`ve done a bloody good job there and i also would like a copy if possible, along with the majority who understand what you tried, and succeeded to achieve.

Rusty

While I’m not objecting to the inclusion of the “Challenger” I would like to suggest an alternative. If you want to stick to SF spaceships, how about a Chig Fighter from “Space: Above and Beyond”?

Quornhog

Sorry for being slow to respond.

Any reason you want the old one?

Pretty sure I actually answered this via email, but, basically, I just like D being Death Star.

chris the cynic

I would love to get a full res copy to print for my child’s room!

Bill Creasey

The hard part with stuff like “a Chig Fighter” is I tried as hard as I could to do ship names and not classes. Although I do fail at this for some of them (X-Wing stands out) I did try to stay true. Thank you for the advice though!

scott

Liked the old-school Galactica spaceship better.

Mike Carlock

Could you please send a hi-res? Looks great except for the absence of the real Enterprise, the TOS version or the one from the first 6 movies. That’s my only quibble and like tribbles it’s only a little one.

Dan Banks

I love the poster and would love to get a hi-res version if you please!
If you decide to redo it, it would be nice to see:
E – Eagle – Space 1999
G – Gunstar1 – The Last Starfighter
H – Hammerheads – Space: Above and Beyond
U – UFO – UFO
V – Valkyire – RoboTech
V – Valley Forge – Silent Running

Gerard

X-Bomber from Starfleet would fit the name rather than the type, however, the X-Wing is far more recognisable. Disappointed to see the my favourite ship, The Liberator disappear from the updated version. Great poster though.

Bluey

‘S’ should be for SULACO

Mark Epling

Because… there is a ship better than Serenity? Nice try Alliance scum.

scott

Would love a hi-res version for my son! Thank you.

Cathy

Would love full rez, well done!

Jimmy

Looks good. :) Can I have a copy of the full res version as well? Cheers. :)

Steven Murray

Great poster! I would have liked to see Moya and Farscape 1 on there, but there you go. Could you send me a copy, please? It would be a great gift for my nerdy husband. Thank you!

kath wyatt

Could I also get a full res version? This is a must for my nephews and sons!! (OK, me too…)

Robby B

What a cool poster! This would be a great way to teach the alphabet! I’d love a high rez copy, please. :)

Julia

I would love a high res copy as I would like to print this and hang it on my wall. Thanks for the effort, this thing is AWESOME.

Andy Watts

I’d love a full res version, if you are still emailing them out,

thank you! Looks great.

Stephen

Could you please send me a hi res version? Thanks

Zach

N for Nostromo !

Al

I would love to have a high rez as well. I love this. I could lie and say it was for a grandson but the truth is… it would be for me. I’m a fan of all of these. And thank you.

Wanda

I would LOVE a high-res version of this for my daughters. Thanks!

Leeloo

HIGHFIVE!

The poster is awesome.
I’d love a high res copy if possible.
Thanks!

Muneers

Please send me a copy of the full res version too!
Thanks.

Jace

Love this!! If you are still willing, could I get a full rez copy as well? And if you still have the version with the Death Star I’d love a copy of it as well (doesn’t need to be full rez, just whatever you have.) Thanks in advance.

Virginia Haviland

Are you still sending out high res versions of this? I cannot think of a more perfect present for my middle brother. Thank you for making it.

Alice

I love this! Could you please email me the high res version? Thank you!!!

Minda

Would love the high reg copy

thanks so much ((miss the Eagle though)

I know you’re probably swamped with requests, but are you still sending out the high res version? I never got the one I asked for :( Thanks if you can!

PJ

Are you still e-mailing the high res version? I love this!! I want this for my son’s nursery to hang next to Pauline Bayne’s Map of Middle Earth. ( And no, he probably won’t get to take this to college with him some day- Mama wants it!)

Dami

I would love a high res copy of this! My grandson is bonkers for Star Wars and such, and he’d get a real kick out of this alphabet.

Jim S

Nicely done! Can you send me a high res version please? Thanks in advance…

Chris

I would also like a copy of the high res file, I hope you are still sending it out. Thanks

katswims

Wow, awesome blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your website is magnificent, as well as the content!|

Clay Wick

I apologize for being like the nine-millionth request, but if you’re still willing to send out the high res file I’d love to hang this in my daughter’s room. She’s almost five and would love this!

Mary

I love it. Please send me a high res version. I’m a teacher and my students will love it. Thanks

Derek

I’d love to! But your email didn’t work. Are you sure you put the right one?

scott

What a fantastic poster! Thank you for all your work. If it’s at all possible, I’d love to get a hi-res file. I have 8 grandchildren and about a 20 member sf club I would share it with. I think they all would enjoy it. Thanks again!

Jan Stuter

Great work! I am a geocacher… If you don’t know what that is, go to geocaching.com

I am hiding several geocaches in my area in Middle Tennessee, and wanted to start each one with a different letter, and then saw this. So i will be using these ship’s names for the series…. Just search for TeamTrunkMonkey on geocaching.com, I will provide a link to my profile there if you want to see.

Also, if you could please send a full-res copy to my email, that would be great.

TeamTrunkMonkey

This is fantastic work and what a great way to pass on the love of all things sci-fi!
Would love a copy of the full-res to make a poster!

Sci-Fi Fan

Please send me a hi-res of this! I would love to hang it in my office AND my son’s bedroom!

chatvite

This is awesome! Looks like it’s been around for a while, but if you’re still able to send out high-res files, I’d love a copy! My boys would go nuts for this!

Aislinn

Wonderful creation, thank you for sharing all those memories! I am so looking forward to showing this to my high school science students in Australia. Can you share us a high-res version?

Roland Gesthuizen

‘B’ is incorrect on this chart, as it is on the one that has it as ‘B’attlestar galactica…8|

ian

How so? The Bebop was the name of the ship in Cowboy Bebop.

scott

I’d like a high res copy too, please. I’m always happy when people create something because it brings them joy, and then the rest of us get to enjoy it, too. Thank you!

Willow

A is the Andromeda Ascendant not the Andromeda.

Duggy

Wow! Can I also request a hi-res version please?

I need this for my son’s nursery. NEED it!!!!
