How many starships/battleships has Captain Zapp Brannigan lost that were under his direct control, throughout the course of Futurama's seasons and films?

    In fact that 42 is the Answer Tor everything, i would say he lost 42 Ships so far. – user7387 Jun 28 '12 at 20:25

    He hasn't lost any ships, he knows exactly where each of them crashed. – user7397 Jun 28 '12 at 21:09
  • i'd rather ask how many ships he has not lost – user7400 Jun 28 '12 at 21:22

    I think that the correct answer is "all of them". – trutheality Jun 29 '12 at 16:52

If we count a "loss" as every time a ship is seriously damaged or destroyed (meaning that a repaired ship can count more than once) then I count 8 losses:

In addition, you could count the stone Martian ship from "A Farewell to Arms" seeing as how Zapp had it purposefully dismantled, but that was after he successfully piloted and landed it on Mars.

  • Leela was piloting the 'The Tiny One-man Stealth Fighter'. Zap was just a back-seat (speaking metaphorically), though very front seat (literally), passenger. – Andrew Thompson Jun 13 '14 at 6:11
  • Not to mention an uncountable number of ships lost that were not piloted by him, but under his command, especially during the first invasion of the Omicronians. – Zibbobz Sep 22 '14 at 20:11

His personal ship, the Nimbus has been destroyed several times. Two examples that immediately come to mind are "A Taste of Freedom" where the Nimbus is chopped in half by a crab like ship, and again in the movie Into the Wild Green Yonder while traversing a giant miniature golf course.

  • In most appearances Nimbus was destroyed at the end. I believe that the number is with two digits, but I really wonder how much times exactly? But, I realize it could be difficult to find out, because I doubt that someone has counted that, and there is to much episodes to check it on quick. – Darko Kc Jun 28 '12 at 22:22
  • Yes, it would be very difficult to count all the ships he has destroyed. – Cyrus Jun 29 '12 at 2:13
