The last 4 look really good, however the others to seem to keep to the same style.  half of them are quite curvy with the wings design and the others are all angular and straight lines.

I would also try and keep the colors coherent.

If they are all enemies from the same "species" or "army", then I would suggest making the designs look more like each other and have a more coherent visual style.  Or at least make their style different from the style of the hero ship.  The designs themselves are all really beautiful, however they look a bit more like pieces of sculpture than enemies -- they aren't very menacing.  They don't really look like things you would want to destroy.
