In my opinion the design internally and externally was amazing and splendid
There is only power...and those to weak to seek it.

The Operative ship is still my favorite in TOR ! Saddly I do not have one to the point of having it.
My Main is a Jedi Sentinel but I hate their ship while doing combat missions , but the Sith Warrior ship I feel alot better using .

Ebon Hawk is my favorite probably just because Han Solo/Leia scenes are likely my favorite in the movies . I wish they would bring it to the game so we could walk its halls whatnot.

I hope eventually we get to use 1 seaters 2 seater small ships , I would love to use the ships that Obi-wan and Anakin was using in Ep3.

Nope its not. Well if you look at both the

Dynamic-class freighter and the YT-1300 light freighter(standard models of the ships), you'll see the YT-1300 is able to carry more passangers, and more cargo and ontop of the it also has a backup hyperdrive which compared to the Dynamic freighters do not.

Also while the Dyanmic frighters need 2 pilots, the YT-1300 can run with just 1 pilot, the YT-1300 also has a better hyperdrive standard then the Dynamic freighters.

Now if you compare the Hawk to the Falcon, the Falcon has had far more extensive modifications making it the superior ship.

For that time in the Kotor era, yes it was a fantastic ship. But the Dynamic class freighter wasn't the best ever built, and the Hawk wasn't the best modified compared to the YT-1300 and The Falcon.

It's obvious the Millenium Falcon is the best ship ever made. Not knocking the Hawk, but the Falcon has survived this long for a reason.

The Falcon was in a sorry state because Han Solo couldn't afford the upkeep and the thing was suffering because of it. Falcon wasn't anywhere near as good as it could've been. The Ebon Hawk, however, was well kept and upgraded the only reason we don't see it isn't because it didn't "survive", it's because it's whereabouts are Unknown after Meetra Surik used it to get to Dromund Kaas.

Ya know, I loved the JK ship. I thought the outside of it just looked great. But the inside of that ship is just SO sucky. It looks too... well... Jedi-ish. Ya know? I realy wanted something that actually looked like something you'd fly.

the yt-1300 (millenim valcon) was a good ship to begin with, but then Han and lando upgraded the hel out of it mainly with military grade stuff. also it yes although the ebon would of been the best in its time, it would stand no chance against the valcon

I was under the impression that the Falcon was supposed to look beat up. As Luke says in Episode IV: 'That heap of junk?!' (maybe not quite what he said, but you get what I mean )
No Stormtrooper/interferring Empire busybody would look at the ship and think it was one of the fastest spaceships in the galaxy.
