# 1 Jem'Hadar Dreadnought Scale

i remember thinking last time i've seen a Jem'Hadar NPC dreadnought that it was way to small compared to on screen...

just found this on my drive:

STO isn't accurate scale wise ever.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

actually the scales in STO are pretty spot on, unless they decide that it is too small to see (shuttles + defiant) or to big to work with their engine
(and for some reason they scaled up the Steamrunner at Tier 5)

i don't really expect the Dreadnought to be much bigger than the Dominion Warship (the middle sized one that isn't in the Lockbox)...

but i would like to actually see a size comparison of it in STO, just to compare.

That makes me sad.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The rule needs to change.

Do you really want to be a giant moving target?

It's still the largest playable ship to date by a not insignificant margin.

I have a very hard time believing that a White Star is pushing five hundred meters long. Especially not with some of the Aurora and Thunderbolt flybys that happen.

Eh, especially if it wasn't super precise in the episodes themselves, I don't see any problem with adjusting the dreadnought to fit in the game. I mean, changing sizes for ships and space stations is 'canon' anyway if you take every scene as gospel
