Size Comparison Of Famous Sci-fi Spaceships [Infographics]

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!

I’d love to see this available as a series of posters! Is it? I also see that there are update dates on the graphics–does that indicate that this is an ongoing project? there are a few other ships I’d love to see included, if the data exists. The Death Star, obviously, but also the Draconian Flagship and various fighters from Buck Rogers, the cruisers from both the theatrical and TV miniseries versions of Dune, The Jupiter 2 (and the Jupiter 1 from the movie) from Lost In Space, the Spindrift from Land of the Giants, the Dark Star, Tin Man from Star Trek, and anything from the Alien mythos.

Have you taken a look at Jeff Russell’s Starship Dimensions site?
http://www.merzo.net/

I’ve been using it since at least 2003 (personally and as a research toll when I worked at ILM!). I looked up Dan Carlson’s site on the Wayback Machine and couldn’t find anything older than 2007.

Lots (all?) of the images are exactly the same. There is no doubt that Dan has put lots of work into his images, but it really seems like he’s at least building on Jeff’s prior work without attribution or link.

This is a good posting on a worthy nerd topic, but you may want to follow up with Dan and get the rest of the story. You may be sitting on an even more interesting story!

The chart shows the planet killer from Star Trek to be just over 1.5 miles long, but in Trek the episode in which it is featured, it is referred to as “miles long”. “Miles”. Plural.

Why state something as 19,000 Meters? Why not 19 Kilometers?
At times it uses Kilometers and at times when it would make sense to use Kilometers Meters are used.
