So, recently, I found this not-so-little gem:

Aside from being blown away by how well put together this is...wow Star Trek's ships are tiny when contrasted with the rest of science fiction.

It is easy to create a massive ship from a creative standpoint. It is a great deal harder create a well designed one. Aside from B5 Star Trek has some of the more well designed ships in Sci Fi, everything on the hulls of the "Hero Ships" in Star Trek is there for a purpose.
My Romulan Liberated Borg character made it to Level 30 and beat the (old) Defense of New Romulus with the skill point bug.

He's added a lot of IPs to it since the last time I saw it.

Personally I was always a fan of IP's that had smaller spacecraft than star trek (and definitely smaller than some others).

Large ships are never efficient or practical, really, regardless of how much sci-fi tech you put into them to make them such.

I prefer ships like firefly/serenity, or the millenium falcon =P

Still, many significant Sci Fi ships are still missing. The Macross Battle is on the chart, but not the much much larger Marcoss Dome colony ship, which is the backdrop for the series 'Macross 7' and 'Macross Frontier'. And theirs no 'Space Battleship Yamato' which predated the existence of 'Star Wars'...

That?s because in 40k a suicide ship ram into an enemy ship isn?t a last resort but a perfectly valid tactic for wiping out dirty xenos aliens.

The only ship that surprised me on the chart was the size of the Kroot Warsphere.

Nah...Warhammer 40k runs on Ham! Even the ships need to chew the scenery. O_O
Cruisers do not suck at DPS and Escorts are not Tanks. If you think this, you need to reread the definition of Tank.
