Visual Comparison Chart Of All Sci-Fi Spaceships Known To Man Gets Final Update

Remember DeviantARTist Dirk Loechel's massive sci-fi spaceship size comparison chart? Well now he's back with the FINAL UPDATE. And this is it. Note: For the sake of scale, only ships with lengths between 100 meters and 24,000-meters are included in the chart, so that's why there are no Star Fox, TIE fighters, x-wings etc., etc. One pixel = 10 meters, so an x-wing would only be a little over a single pixel. Also, the International Space Station is presented in the top left corner with a yellow box around it for REAL LIFE SCALE. Really puts things into perspective, doesn't it? That perspective being it's much easier to make-believe a spaceship six miles long than to actually build one.

Thanks to Jordan, who pointed me to the Mass Effect section in the lower left corner, which is where I spent most of my time upset the Citadel didn't make the cut because it's almost 45-km long and would stretch the whole width of the chart.

    Love the list. I have been looking for one this detailed for awhile. Do you have one for the fighter sized craft and the ones above the size limit?

  • Cory

    Where is the TARDIS???

  • AlienFanatic

    From the DeviantArt page:

    Q: And where's TARDIS?
    A: It's both too large and too small for the chart.

  • Daniel Blank

    Too bad this was taken from someone else work and this hack job is taking credit. Just head over to http://www.merzo.net/ site and see Jeff Russel's work.

  • Nye Liu

    Still no Culture ships. Sigh.

  • Shooter McGavin

    no LEXX ? or did i miss it?

  • Bill Johnson

    Very nice work! I'd like to see horror film's added. The "Event Horizon", The space station from Hell Raiser 4.

  • Upstate Steve

    Event Horizon is in there. Just above ID4.

  • James Sterlington

    I saw no Heart of Gold from HHGG, and I saw no tardis in the doctor who section. I mean, I know it's probably too small to show, but they could have put a blue dot with a caption next to it

  • Daniel Blank

    Check out http://www.merzo.net/, they made sure to put the Tardis in there.

  • James Sterlington

    oop. never mind, just saw the disclaimer. Still no Heart of Gold though

  • jogproof

    ah just imagine that the poster is showing a tiny draw inside the TARDIS =D

  • Ramuran

    Can anyone help me spot the Event Horizon and/or the Outlaw Star? I don't see them... x.x

  • Fuck You Asshole

    I'm not seeing the Satellite of Love. This chart is bullshit.

  • Kudos for adding Xenosaga ships, though the lack of the Dammerung or either version of the Merkabah is disheartening. Would have also been really cool to see the Eldridge in there from Xenogears.

  • Xankar

    Darn, no Nexus the Jupiter incident...

  • Peter Bourque

    No Deathstar?

  • AlienFanatic

    From his DeviantArt page

    Q: Why isn't the Death Star/CSO Carrier/V'Ger/other large ship on the chart?
    A: For reasons of image quality and chart organisation, only ships between a minimum of 100 meters and 24000 meters are applicable for this chart, sorry. Arbitrary? Yes! But I had to draw the line somewhere.

  • Matteo.L.Feo

    Wow, I appreciate the effort that went into making this but I have 2 minor complaints: It is insanely hard to make sense of at points (it could really use some arrows or something), and where the heck is the Lost Light? IDW Transformers fans, amirite?

  • reave

    Where the the hell is the Ark for that matter?
