I'd keep the Endeavor Hope.
That's a solid pick and I'd seriously consider that one. Hospital is always needed, it has its own landing bay which is awesome, and if you want to be more adventurous you can detach the armored cab and take that out to explore or run other missions while you leave the hospital portion somewhere safe. Hope would be my close 2nd, but I think I now have to go with the Apollo. Because at least that one I can operate myself or only need 1-2 others, compared to Hope that needs a good amount of people to run efficiently I think. Healing is always something in need, and my Apollo, aka 'Big Red', well she is one sexy ship imo. 😇

Yeah, Apollo is on my top 3 as well. As much as I like it because it's the perfect mix between the size and crew req. of the Cutlass Red and the abilities of the Hope, it's hard to get over that fact that I find it so... ugly. I can't put my finger on it, but something about the Apollo looks really weird to me. Is it the rounded belly? Is it the horrendously placed engines (which I imagine can be detached off the ship really easily)?
I don't know. I bought the Apollo for what it's supposed to do, but I'm unsure if I'll keep it. :|

I actually plan to get rid of everything except 1 ship when the game goes live and the ship I am going to use to build the fleet back up is the Cutlass Black because there is room for cargo and lots of opportunity for hands-on mining, salvage, and could also do cargo recovery with that tractor beam. Also, I just love Drake.

If the idea is that I could only play the game with 1 ship period I would pick the Endeavor because that is the ship that I have my eyes set on as my personal end game. This one might be considered cheating though because I don't own it and will never own it with cash because of how much I want to EARN that ship.

Polaris. Not too big, not too small, fast for its size, can do many different kinds of tasks from running freight to attacking Vanduul Void Bombers, and most importantly--it has a pool table.

You poor sods who go without pool, whatever do you do when focusing hard on your drinking? Do you at least hang a dart board in the back of a Mustang?

When Jared was doing his Highlander question for ships in the various Ship Shapes to the devs it it seems like an interesting idea.

If your current fleet was going to be taken away but you were allowed to keep ONE ship, which ship would you keep and why?

All things being equal I would keep the Prospector because with it I know for a fact I can start to rebuild my wealth with it and acquire other ships.
I would keep my Polaris with to only find someone who will pay me to scuttle it then using the money to hopefully be able to buy a hauler and cargo for it to start making money to later recover my LTI Polaris

I'd keep my Starfarer Gemini.
Mainly because the only alternative is Avenger Titan.
Small fleet and all that jazz.
