Shuttles are at a much larger scale than ships are. Ships are scaled correctly (for the most part) to each other, shuttles are scaled correctly (again, for the most part) to each other. Ships, shuttles, and background objects like space stations (DS9) and planets are NOT scaled correctly relative to each other.

Here is why. If shuttles were scaled relative to a Galaxy class cruiser, it would be smaller than the pixel resolution of your screen.
