The fortress ship is between 7 and 8 times longer than the Titans in Eve.
Nah, the Death Star 1 officially is now 160km wide.

But thinking about it, it doesn't matter. A Voth ship could phase through a superlaser hit. And then you just ram the Death Star for Massive Damage .

It would have to be a time travel mission....but I doubt it. After all V'Dec'lia ascended to another level of consciousness and reality as a new life form.

Now if the aliens responsible for V'Gers upgrade wanna show up. I think we'd lose.

If ship size is determinant of cost. A scarcely kilometer long Odyssey is 5,000 zen. So a 134 kilometer ship should be something like....67,000 zen.

And looking at that, can you imagine how long it will take to outfit it with mkXII weapons?

And how would this be for hilarious, all of that equipment.....and one Voth Warp Core

That seems off to me, seeing as a 3km Borg cube could house up to 130000 crew, though I doubt the Voth would force their citizens into dwelling in alcoves. Say a Borg cube of 3km sustained 80000 crew, doing the math, a city ship could, by those standards, support a compliment of roughly 3.6 million. Dayum. Das big. But if it's as big as that diagram shows, the hell with the Borg. To whoever made that post about why the Voth aren't the lead power in the delta quadrant...in all seriousness, the Feds need to take one of these, and convert it into a blockade runner. Install primary, secondary, and tertiary redundant shielding to the fore of the ship, reroute all non-essential power to forward shields, install ablative armoring, and back that with forcefield shrouded reinforced hull armor. Instant anti-Borg transwarp battering ram. With that, you could literally PLOW through a TACTICAL FUSION CUBE. I can only say, that after this, we can only logically blame all of our galaxy's assimilation issues on the assumed-duty-shirking Voth.
A friend of mine once pointed out Yoda's lack of expedience in Attack of the Clones as "Malingering". I believe the Trope is called Achilles in his Tent.

Alternative Songs for Looping or making a playlist for "The Breach" STF:

1. Sorario Days Tengen Toppa Edition

2. The Unsung War from Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War

3. Take a Shot followed by Don't Be Long followed by Ace of Aces

4. Rex Tremedae Megalith Agnus Dei from Ace Combat 4: Shattered Skies

and last but not least (for right now) because this is second to none the most awesome track in existence and only needs one word for it's epicness to be known...

5. Zero

EDIT: Another one for the list

6. The Liberation of Gracemaria

EDIT2: In all seriousness...I say the Escorts and any ships with at least a Lt. Commander Universal or Tactical BOff slot runs Torp Spread 3 and Romulan Hyper-Plasma Torps...because nothing says "Torp you and the Dinosaur you rode in on!" like a Starfleet/Romulan/Klingon Torpedo Massacre.

EDIT3: Bonus points if it is Scimitars/B'rel Retrofits/T'varo Retrofits with Enhanced Cloak.

EDIT4: Dear Cryptic STO Ship Design Team...I would like to request that the 4th Anniversary is every faction getting access to an Omega/Dyson Strike Force/SCE and KDF/RR-equivalent designed Carrier that is a shoutout to the Macross franchise with it's own Valkryie Fighters and a mission to pick up Advanced versions with Cannon Rapid Fire II and Torp Spread II with Antiproton Dual Cannons and Hyper Quantum Micro-Torps. Special console allows it to Transform into a Robot and punch things.
Cruisers do not suck at DPS and Escorts are not Tanks. If you think this, you need to reread the definition of Tank.

So... Does the Federation commit mass murder every time it shoots one down?

Also, what the hell is the point of a ship that big?

Pretty much. But they shouldn't fly a country into a battle zone.

The Voth have found a new homeworld, but I think they're still primarily a space borne species. 65 million years of space travel, starting with a mass immigration that they don't remember, they could have cultural remnants that they don't even understand. Like in One Piece with the Void Century, the Voth have undergone changes in their society that they don't even comprehend.

If you've already lost one homeworld, I doubt your species would want to put all their eggs in one basket. Especially since they're so resistant to change.

Alternatively they could just think that it is just as logical for a city to function as a starship as for it to sit static on the surface of a planet. A ship that size could have thirty shopping malls, two zoos, a lake, eight universities, four voting districts, a farm, a supermarket, twelve hospitals, with four egg nurseries, and a partridge-in-a-pear-tree.

And unlike Captain Picard's misgivings about families on a Galaxy class, a Voth City Ship or Fortress Ship with an absolute defense like the phase cloak could park inside a supernova and it would be about as dangerous as fireworks (unless even a phase cloak can't dodge a supernova). Or it could just...y'know shoot with all of its weapons. Can you imagine a full broadside from that thing? Like a fleet from Macross.

What did I say earlier, something about it comes out the twelfth and shuttle runs before Thanksgiving?

Ah, that's the one. Season's not even out yet and people are already making plans for it. Called that one, I did...
