Starship Dimensions: Battlestar Galactica (TOS) Part 3

Battlestar Galactica


Space Ship Dimensions

or

“what size is your ship ?”

Continued 3

I want to show you all the key classic designs along side each other using the main ships from these shows, Focusing on the Battlestar Galactica using designs from other shows Star Trek TMP Star Trek TNG Star Wars, These following images are showing the scale of each ship with a very small degree of error as calculated by official sources

USS Enterprise Refit: length -1000 ft – by Dennis Bailey

USS Enterprise D: length – 2000 ft – by Prologic9

  Imperial Star-destroyer: length –  5249 ft or 1600m by Fractalsponge

Battlestar Galactica: length 6080ft by Folkrm

These are to scale and I was very surprised when I saw the Battlestar and the Star-destroyer along side each other, yet I feel the Star-destroyer looks more imposing because of its shape.

I always knew the scale of the original Enterprise and it refit would be just longer than the launch bay on the Star-destroyer given the scale of the rebel blockade runner in a little shorter than the Enterprise at around 492 ft approximately.

I liked this image the moment I saw the angle… the scale of the Galactica is so impressive.
