Have fun perusing through the huge image of all spaceships having appeared in the realm of science fiction.

Let's hope your favorite ship is represented.

Here's a better one, it lets you scale, and drag and drop ships around for easier comparison. http://www.merzo.net/

I don’t see the Doomsday Machine from Star Trek.

It was supposed to be several miles in length.

They’re missing one.

Hint, it was in the first Star wars movie and it was big.

OK, i'm feeling a little bit slighted here, the Jupiter 42 might not be as big and fancy as those other ships, but, they don't have Six either...

Clicked on the link, got the big pic. Then got the overwhelming urge to hit the space bar to shoot. Tried it, nothing happened.

Yeah, I don't see the Fireball XL5 anywhere!

Maybe it's too small.

My virus protection program doesn't trust the website that downloads the full-size image.

Don't see Rama from Arthur C. Clarke's Rendezvous With Rama. It is a cylinder 31 miles long and 12 miles in diameter.

They get points for including robotech, but lose a lot by not including at least some of the classics from sci-fi books.

Sometimes I think most folks think all sci-fi is just fruity movies/tv/video games. It all started with fruity books!

Not to mention the Dauntless and the Britannia of the Lensman books. Hell's bells, it's amazing. E.E.Smith wrote most of the plots that sci-fi writers have been ringing the changes on...for decades. "Battlestar Galactica"? Sheesh. Read the originals, folks.

Sorry, King -- YOU would have, naturally, esp. given your citing of the Skylark.

I more accurately should have directed my comment DIRECTLY to our colleagues commenting here.

It's a double tragedy, really. That Smith died relatively young, and that "science fiction" was for a couple-three decades a poison-dripping epithet of the "mainstream" (read: NYC) literary world.

Heinlein? Well, everybody 'knows' him (cough). I'm sure you've read Heinlein's credit to Doc, from which I've come to share--vigourously--his view. Simak, Ellison, Niven and Pournelle excepted, of course.

Look along the right-hand edge and about a third of the way down, you’ll see the Star Trek vessels.

It doesn’t include my star ship from the series of nine books I’m writing with my co-author. . . But then at the scale they are using, it wouldn’t fit on the sheet . . . No where close to fitting. ;^). Of course, we are only half way through the first book.

No Dyson Sphere?

The Tholian Web was able to move entire Stars.

I didn’t see Babylon 5.

Space:1999 the entire moon was a space ship.

Just an FYI:

The “Orbital Refinery” is from the film Alien, not “Aliens”.

the Lensman books

Man, that brings back memories. I can remember gobbling up that series long ago. Don't know how many times I was late to work because I couldn't put one of those books down.

E.E. Doc Smith was the master.
