Space is a dangerous place so you need to make sure you're ready for everything out there waiting in the darkness. Sometimes, a towel just isn't enough. Sometimes you need a powerful starship.
The Star Trek universe is filled with ships that are fast, powerful and well armed. It's not just the Federation that has them. Multiple galactic organizations have their own ships needed to dominate their respective territories. Without them, it can be incredibly difficult to maintain an empire, no matter how impressive your warriors are.
Some of the best episodes of every Star Trek series feature impressive space battles, pitting these ships against each others. In some cases, the ships are facing off one on one. Other times, it's fleet against fleet. Anyway you cut it, these battles make for incredible television, as well as a great use of special effects.
While each ship has its own unique design with attributes that set it apart, some are simply more powerful than others. The question is how do they stack up against each other and which one do you want in a fight.
