Everyone knows the ongoing question, does size matter? If you think this is going to be about “that” topic, I am afraid you are checking out the wrong post. This is about something entirely different, but as usual, there is an underlying point here. We have all seen the movies (more or less) where grand spaceships fly through space, and we continuously marvel over their intricate design and structures. Star Wars and Star Trek sure do have their share of them, and the list will get long if I sit here and name pretty much every single science fiction series or movies out there and the ships therein. I will just let you guys harbor that information because when you are done checking this post out, you will know what I am talking about.
It is always hard to comprehend the size of spaceships in movies. For example, if you have ever seen any of the Alien movies, you know that those giant freighters are supposed to be pretty big, but you have no real clue just how big they are. Dan Carlson from Star Trek Minutiae decided he wanted to put an end to all of this madness about which ship is bigger, so he set out on a journey to research and create some infographics that showcased the different sizes compared to each other.
The result is a series of really detailed and quite interesting size comparisons that I am sure any science fiction fan will find ultimately useful. It’s a LOT of ships, so you better brace yourself for an information overload. They are; however, awesome and all you really have to know is that most of the ships you probably won’t even remember if you’re anywhere close to being normal (unless you’re a helpless uber sci-fi fan who does more than just read about these things). This is quite amazing, and I can’t even fathom the time it must have taken to research all this!
