 Starship - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki
Starships were commonly powered by ion engines or sublight drives, and many - usually the larger vessels - were equipped with hyperdrive generators, used to reach lightspeed.
Such was the state of the galaxy, many starships were armed, usually with laser cannons or blaster cannons.
Intergalactic starflight became possible largely with the invention of the dual-drive system, which consisted of an anti-grav drive to exit a system's gravity well and do inter-system traveling, and a hyperdrive system to allow for faster-than-light travel.

 Jefferson Airplane - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This edition of Jefferson Starship (such as it was) included members of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young (David Crosby and Graham Nash) and members of the Grateful Dead (Jerry Garcia, Bill Kreutzman, and Mickey Hart), as well as some of the remaining members of Jefferson Airplane (Slick, Covington, and Casady).
It was while that album was being made that Kantner sealed his love affair with Grace Slick; their daughter China Kantner (who made a name for herself as an MTV veejay in the 1980s) was born shortly thereafter.
However, the Jefferson Starship albums of this era were only modestly successful, yet the band remained a gold-selling (and thus commercially credible) act, and a popular concert draw.

The problem is that the twelve levels of Starship Troopers are mostly a snooze; a few fun moments are overwhelmed by endless repetition and tired design ideas.

 Starship Combat Simulator Online : About
Starship Combat Simulator is a turn-based game of Starship Combat where you take command of as many ships as you want, or that are allowed by the game creator, in an attempt to accomplish the game objects.
Each player begins the game with their full compliment of starships and may use all the ships in their fleet each turn.
The basic idea is there, that you control a starship and have to allocate your shields, weapons, and movement, but it has evolved so much that it is hardly recogizable as that old game.

I liked this Starship album compiling their hits between the name changes of Jefferson Starship and Starship.
Having seen Starship ranked by Blender as the fifth worst artist in music history, it is embarrasing to recall and admit that I once bought this album.
Whilst Starship might not deserve to be so high on Blender's list of the worst bands ever given the number of horrible grungy bands I heard almost every day during the 1990s, their music was still of little if any value.

 GameSpy: Starship Troopers Preview
Indeed, the events of the Paul Verhoeven film adaptation of the novel Starship Troopers have been begging to be realized in a game that allows you to stare the bugs in the mandibles as you shoot them, and that's precisely what Starship Troopers is aiming for.
The story is set five years after the end of the film, and Casper Van Dien, the original film's star, will reprise his role as Johnny Rico-- who's now a general in the human forces -- and voice the pre-mission briefings.

 VH1.com : Starship : Starship's Mickey Thomas - Urge Music Downloads
Singer Mickey Thomas' strong, high-pitched voice was perfect for the plaintive pop-rock hits of Starship, the band he still leads, which formed from the ashes of the Jefferson Airplane/Starship lineups.
Thomas' first appearance on an LP with the group was on Jefferson Starship's Freedom at Point Zero (1979), which yielded the Thomas-sung hit "Jane" (RealAudio excerpt).
Without Sears, Starship followed their debut LP with No Protection (1987), featuring the #1 "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now." Though the music was commercially successful, critics (who found Jefferson Starship a weak version of the earlier Airplane) attacked the generic AM-radio fodder they said Starship was producing.

Starship's 1985 album still stands out as the best from the '80s efforts of the Starship or Jefferston Starship incarnations.
