This mind blowingly HUGE and very complete starship comparison chart was compiled by Deviantart user Dirk Loechel. Keep in mind that 1 pixel equals 10 meters. Be sure to click on the picture to view it in full size (It will open in a new window.)

technically speaking, if we were to include the full interior size of the TARDIS, as the TARDIS is infinitely massive, its would dwarf even the executor class super star destroyer, eclipse class super star destroyer, the leviathan class titan, or city destroyer invasion mothership of independence day, even if you included length and breadth.
still, would be nice to have seen an attempt made ahah
No Spaceball 1?
My thoughts exactly! I guess the chart wasn’t big enough?
I was surprised about that… and the fact that there’s no Falcon!
no Serenity Itself? no tardis i can understand…technically too small to be visible…but we’ve got other firefly ships but not the serenity itself?
Serenity was pretty small, too. The text just to label it would dwarf the image even more than most of the ones already listed.
According to Wikipedia the Serenity is 82m which would be only 8.2 pixels, too small to show.
@Jeff: First reaction too! it would be 2/10 of a pixel :(
needs more warhammer.
also, what’s warhammer?
Tell me you are joking right?
I mean about the what’s warhammer part…and it’s warhammer 40k actually…warhammer and warhammer 40k are two different things…
yes, i was joking…it seemed a bit warhammer-heavy.
What about the ships from The Fifth Element?
Captain harlock ??? (Albator) the two starship ….
No Death Star? Meh…
Not technically a ship. It’s a non-mobile battle station.
No, it’s pretty mobile. Not super-fast, mind you, but it travels to meet other worlds it wants to annihilate.
Just because it can change star systems doesn’t mean it is a ship. This doesn’t list any of the other battle, star, or other types of Stations on here.
Deathstar is there.Torpedo Sphere Class Assault ship… Didn’t know the name..
I guess thats it. Looks right. … But, where’s the Doomsday Machine- Original Star Trek?
No it’s not. According to Wookieepedia the original Death Star was 160 kilometers or 160,000 meters in diameter. The largest ship on this chart seems to be 24,000 meters long. It wouldn’t fit, it’s larger than the whole chart. The second Death Star was even larger. Many ships are missing because they are too small, the Death Star however is just too freakin big lol
*picture of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann* And, then…there’s THIS motherfucker….
So….much….geek. Getting light headed.
Did I miss it, or is the Death Star not on there?
No Andromeda Ascendant or Magog Worldship :( That would have been cool.
No NASA Space Shuttle? Nothing from DR. Who at all? Hopefully this is just a work in progress.
Where is the SSV Normandy?
That’s what I was looking for too. Seems The Normandy is always forgotten on these things: A Harbinger Class reaper, or the Destiny ascension (being significantly larger than the normandy would have been ok too. It’s a shame.
Man, the Ascension is beautiful…
no death star? I guess it’s to big, but no serenity? and the Star trek space stations? as in DS9
the 40K list had only the medium ships and small ones. it didn’t have Armageddon-class Fleetmasters, any of the hive fleet ships, tau motherships (kroot don’t count), ANY of the non-alliance ships from Firefly/Serenity, and probably 500 other glaring mistakes…
this needs to be a poster. NOW. Make it so.
I think it says in small print at the bottom “As seen from the Death Star”
V’ger ? What about the probe ship from Star Trek 4… Death Star I and II… meh.
Ah I see it now – never mind ;)
No Ishimura from Dead Space?
What about descent FreeSpace? Or FreeSpace 2?
Wooo Eve Online ships are epic!!
Be sure to check the newest version of the pic: http://dirkloechel.deviantart.com/art/Size-Comparison-Science-Fiction-spaceships-398790051 GAS posted an older one
LOL WALL-E ships! Wow, so much effort put into this…
There are so many omissions but i can understand some. Many would be too small to even be visible but i still think its cool you could make this poster enourmous and still not cover half of sci-fi.
Damn!!! Where is the Death Star????
Anything From Dune?
According to the artist’s deviantArt post, Dune is next to be added.
According to StarTrek.com the Voth City Ship should be about 11,000 meters long not 9,800.
International Space Station should be included, just for comparison. ;)(yes, I know it is technically not ship).
It needs the Great Fox… and the usg Ishimura from dead space. Might as well throw the battleship Halberd in there while you’re at it. (Pretty please?)
No Mass Effect ships? I am dissapoint.
What about the Shivan ships on Freespace?
where is the big ship from the startrek the 1 sent into the blackhole with nemo its bigger than loads of theese
What about the City of Atlantis itself… it’s a ship, has a star drive. Otherwise… awesome!!
is there a higher definition version anywhere? would look great printed a0 or as a vynal wrap
showing my old age/ wiseness…battle beyond the stars!!
Poo, I wanted to see Destiny from Stargate Universe. :(
No Culture AI Ship with “interesting names” ….
Where were the Reapers? The Normandy? The most epic space games of all time – the epic space game of all time doesn’t get represented? Pooh – I wanted to see how the citadel was in comparison – same thing with the Reapers…
Was it just me or is it missing all of Battlestar Galactica?
can you actually buy this as a poster?
I would love to buy this for my partner.
Looking at the Star Wars ships, It kind of disappoints me that authors had to come up with larger and larger ships past the original trilogy. Making a SSD severely strained the economy of the Empire, not to mention Death Stars 1 and 2. I doubt the Empire could amass enough industry to make anything else of that size during its decline and dissolution, although they definitely did make tons of Star Destroyer sized vessels.
I just think the ‘huge ship’ is an overused plot device to make ‘more danger.’
Would be interesting to see the Descent Freespace series ships in here, especially the GTVA Colossus, the Shivan Sathanas-class juggernauts and the Shivan Lucifer-class. Although I’m sure the Executor is still bigger.
+1 for Stargate Atlantis and Destiny from SGU.
What would be the best way to get a good print of this in larger poster format?? Any online resources folks would recommend?
