    Coruscant isn't a town. It's a planet.

    I'm surprised no one's mentioned the planet Riza from TNG.

    That's becuase it's a planet.

    "The whole planet is one big city!"

    If you want to get into the population semantics, that's another story.

    "Jayne's town. "

    Brilliant! :D

    Mine would have to be Gotham City, Coruscant (Don't care if it's not city), Neo Tokyo, and Manaan for KOTAR...

    My vote is for Coruscant, with Theed as the runner up.

    Hadley's Hope was a nice town until the neighbors stopped by for a visit.

    I would have mentioned a city on Riza, but I don't recall any of its cities ever being named. So there. :p

    Delfino Plaza, Isle Delfino, from Super Mario Sunshine (I think that I'm the only person in the world who liked this game)

    It's a tropical paradise with an endless supply of fresh fruit and fruit juice, and a stunningly awesome town that makes me dream of vacations to far-away resorts. Beautiful white sand beaches ringing an impeccable marble town of cafés, restaurants, hotels, lighthouses, fountains, piazzas and canals. The justice system is swift, fair, and forgiving. The worst crime that has ever been committed has been vandalism, and that only happened once. The town runs on a clean, endless source of power, and you can take a quick boat trip to anywhere on the picturesque island. The seafood is world-reknown, the resorts top-notch, the amusement park actually amusing, the icecream is epic, the windmills are pastoral, the cliffs dazzling, the coral reefs fascinating, the beaches beautiful, the casinos fair, and the sunsets are to die for. And what's the most enthralling part? Money lying everywhere. Need some cash? Just feel around under your chair and you're bound to find enough to get you to the end of your next meal.

    If only it were real...

    Themyscira aka Paradise Island, beautiful women and beautiful island.

    Caras Galadhon or Ankh-Morpork. Both are fantasy rather than sci-fi, but I don't care.

    Bay City is pretty cool, from Altered Carbon.

    Would Atlantis from Stargate Atlantis is pretty damn cool too.

    The mining town on LV-426. Not only do you get a good day's work done there, but you also get visitors. Both of the Colonial Marine, and of the Xenomorph, variety! ("Aliens")
