+ - Starship size comparison chart

Loechel has created a Starship size comparison chart from nearly 40 sci-fi TV shows, movies, and video games. It shows a Star Trek Constellation-class starship, of which the Enterprise is the most famous progeny, being only about 300 meters long. A Star Wars Executor-class Super Star Destroyer, one of the largest ships on Loechel's chart, is 19,000 meters long .
