WELCOME TO STARSHIP DIMENSIONS...
A Museum of Speculative
Fiction inspired Spaceships
Starship Dimensions has retired!
We have decided to formally retire Starship Dimensions, after an amazing experience of more than a decade and millions of visitors. We will maintain the site in an archive capacity for the forseeable future, but will no longer be updating the ships.
We are moving on to darker pastures, but for everyone out there who is looking for up-to-date scale charts, an excellent alternative project that is still being updated can be located here:
Dirk Loechel' s Science Fiction Spaceships Size Comparison Chart
ABOUT THIS SITE
This site is intended to allow science fiction fans to get an impression of the true scale of their favorite science fiction spacecraft by being
able to compare
genres, as well as being able to compare them with
contemporary objects with which they are probably familiar.
The scales are based on
meter-to-pixel ratios so that they are accurate on any platform. The background grid is
divided into groups of ten, and larger groups of one hundred pixels, to allow for easy
This site is only intended to compare the actual physical dimensions of the
starships herein, and makes no claims as to any other aspect of these ships (firepower,
speed, etc.). Each genre is worthy of respect in its own right and no preference
is given to any one genre. If you are interested in a certain vessel/being, I encourage
you to view to film or read the books in which they originally appeared in all their
glory. In time, I will provide the source information with each vessel to make it easier
to find these sources.
The charts are intended to be interactive such that
Internet explorer users may click and drag the starships within the charts to arrange them
in whichever way they please. I am working on incorporating the same feature for Netscape
and other web browser users. The site is very Graphics intensive by nature and therefore is
targeted towards a higher bandwidth connection (DSL, etc). It will likely bog down dialup
We have gathered many of the starship images from various
sources on the web included in my LINKS page, plus some I have drawn from scratch.
This site is a constant work in progress, you will have to check back often to catch the
latest changes and additions.
Above all, this site is intended as an homage to the many
great people who have created these ideas for us to enjoy, so Enjoy!
Millions and Millions served... I got rid of the counter because it wasn't working. Around 2000 people visit this site every day
