What is the largest Enterprise?
 
Between these which is the largest?

The Enterprise-D is biggest* as far as overall volume is concerned, although the Enterprise-E is slightly longer.

In one version of Trek's future, though, it would presumably be the so-called Enterprise-J (designer Doug Drexler estimated the ship was about two miles in length).

*I'm not touching the nuEnterprise because her size apparently varies last time I heard, but she's presumably up there with the Enterprise-D (or maybe not).

Between these what? Each ship named Enterprise? The Enterprise-D is the largest vessel bearing the name to date. It had forty two decks and could hold a crew of more than one thousand people.

The Ent-E has a lot less internal space than the wonderful Ent-D, definitely. I wouldn't be surprised if the Ent-E is smaller on the inside than the Ent-C (Ambassador class), honestly.

Always wondered what a true successor to the Enterprise D/Galaxy class would look like, incidentally. The Ent-E is just a 'bad ass' ship so isn't adequate or suitable design wise.

The Odyssey-class

CBS authorized this design for the Enterprise-F after a contest for the Star Trek Online game. She's bigger than the Sovereign-class, but still just shy of the Galaxy-class.

I voted for length but the D is bigger, volume wise.

Enterprise NCC-1701-D: 642m
Enterprise NCC-1701-E: 685m
Enterprise NCC-1701 (alternate reality): 725m

The Enterprise-D has the most internal volume although the -E is a little longer.

The USS Vengeance dwarfs everything, at about 1450m.

Jay, 1+ mile long, many times the internal volume of the D.

I do believe the thread's over, then ! :)

Bleaugh, it's just a Sovereign but 'kewler' and more aggressive looking. Well, it fits that design lineage perfectly, but isn't fit to clean out the waste disposal system of the timeless and ever-wonderful Galaxy class.

Re: What is the largest Enterprise?
 
I agree. I like the Enterprise-F, but I think the proportions aren't quite right.

Some people just like fat chicks.

My vote go to the Enterprise J.

How do we know the E-J is to that scale, though? All we see is a blurry image on a monitor in Enterprise.

You'd think in the future, the long range vessels would get smaller as the technology got better.
