Comparison Of Existing Spaceship Sizes To Enterprise

spaceship-sizes-small.jpg

Note: Larger version HERE. Version with even more ships but no Enterprise HERE.

This is a visual comparison of current/past space vessels compared to the USS Enterprise. As you can see, it appears they like to build spaceships way bigger in the future. I'm kidding, Star Trek isn't real. SPOILER: Star Wars either. I hate to break it to you, but the future is gonna be far less exciting than the sci-fi movies and shows make it out to be, and it's gonna be populated entirely by people who regret ever taking the live-forever pill in the first place. But hey -- don't take a REAL time traveler's word for it, wait and see for yourself. I'm kidding, you'll be dead long before the time the live-forever pill is invented in 2196.

Thanks to Dave, who tried telling me size doesn't matter even though every single ex-girlfriend of his told has him it does and that's why, despite being such a great guy, she has to leave him (it's cool guys, I know him).

    Some reports have the Enterprise from the reboot the size of the Next Generation size Enterprise which is 4 times the size.

  • Skylon sounds way too similar too Cylon... do not trust.

  • Who's developing the Enterprise and when can I visit?

  • Wait!
    If they're comparing the Enterprise to real spaceships, why isn't the Millennium Falcon on the picture!?

    Or the Death Star space station. Also, I like how the Enterprise is color coded as "in development", hmmm... who is building one?

  • No Independence Day ship. Fail

  • Wait.. wtf is a skylon and when can I buy one?

  • Jack Clements

    Skylon is a British spaceplane that is under development, based off the shelved HOTOL design that was attempted in the 1980's. It should be able to fly up to space like a normal plane and will probably be cheaper than the space shuttle.
    You can find out more at Reaction Engines (the company who are developing the Skylon) webpage.
