Every Sci-Fi Starship ever*
Kotaku.com ^ | Wednesday, 6:30pm | Kirk Hamilton

Posted on 09/27/2013 11:40:21 AM PDT by Utilizer

Holy hell, that is a LOT of starships.

This comparison chart, compiled by DeviantARTist Dirk Loechel, presents what he says is an accurate size-comparison between famous sci-fi starships. As far as I can tell it's got more or less every single sci-fi starship ever, from Star Wars to Warhammer to EVE Online to Halo and way, way beyond. In an update this month, Loechel added a ton more ships to what already must have been a huge collection.

Star Trek, StarGate, Babylon Five -heck, even the Red Dwarf mining ship is shown in relationship to other historical (can we call fantasy 'historical'?) ships... I am not posting the pic since it really dragged down this browser when I first attempted to view it. YMMV.

No Homeworld Mothership. No Battleplates from Schlock Mercenary...

It pays to read the asterisk.

*Okay, not exactly every single one, but a ton.

I found three Firefly ships, but didn't find Serenity.

Consider that the U.S.S. Gerald R. Ford has an estimated cost of $13.7 billion and it doesn't have to fly, be air tight or go faster than light, how much will those big ships cost? The first ship in the upper left is a Star Galleoon [sic] class ship from Star Wars is bigger than the Ford (450 meters vs 337 meters long), and volume, mass and presumably cost will go up with the cube of the length. So the Eclipse class super star destroyer will cost about $1.9 quadrillion dollars. Better use the cheap Chinese robots to build it to shave off a few hundred trillion from the budget.

Well, no Kilrathi, Orion, Glatun, Horvath, Rangora, or Posleen BattleGlobes either as far as I can tell. But still a pretty impressive collection. I cringe at the thought of trying to load an even larger graphic with more ships if they update it loads more.

The Robotech stuff is wedged between Star Trek and Starship Troopers in the lower right-hand quarter.

Cool pic.
I wonder if there’s any pics like these that only shows ships that have actually been seen on film and TV.
I’ve never even heard of a, “17,500 meter Eclipse-Class Super Star Destroyer,” and I’m a hugh Star Wars fan.
