What'sup space nerds. Hows your biggest and baddest craft flying these days? I bet mine's bigger. It's the John A. Warden Battleship, man. From StarShip Troopers Invasion? That's 1,500 metres of pure ass kicking right there son.
Oh... yours is a Titan ship from Eve? Ok never mind.
If you've ever wondered how big space ships can be, the answer is: huge. Take the biggest ship you can think of, and chances are, you'll find one that's bigger on this amazingly created comparison of every space ship from every sci-fi universe. There might be the odd one missing if you want to get pedantic, but at a zoomed in glance, it looks like creator Dirk Loechel has covered most of the bases.
Here's a list of just a few of the sci-fi movie and game universes represented on this massive chart:
And the list goes on and on. Red Dwarf is even on there you guys.
Which is the biggest though? It'll take some scrolling around to check the sizes of a few of the biggest, as they all clock in about the same size.
Eve might win if you take into consideration the total mass of a ship, with its Titans clearly dominating the picture. Warhammer 40k comes close to the top with some of its biggest creations and Star Wars has perhaps the most super-long vessels around, but ultimately, the big cahuna, listed at 24,000 metres across, is the city destroying Mothership from Independence Day.
