If the Enterprise-D were a real starship...
 
Someone on Trek BBS is doing a full scale Galaxy class starship, interior AND exterior, on Google sketchup, using real world metric system measurements. It's interesting to see how big the ship REALLY is!

http://trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=92098

Published dimensions:
length: 842.5 meters
beam : 487 meters
depth : 137 meters

Real world dimensions
length : 1048.41 meters
beam : 738 meters
Depth : 238 meters

Do you guys have any idea how much a thing like that would cost? :001_tongue:

So what we're saying is there are scaling inconsistencies with the D?

Most definitely. I wonder if the other ships have similar scaling inconsistencies? And what does this say about the new movie Enterprise's scale? Oh, the fun of debating starship sizes! :thumbup:

The guy who made that ship apparently lost all the data on his harddrive so never finished it. However he started this:

Which is pretty awesome.

I remember an old image that superimposed the D over the Paramount lot for scale as well, actually, and it covered the whole area!

I don't get it...the Galaxy is 642. Why would the "real" ship be longer?
