Re: Starship Size Argument™ thread

^^^ This likely lends credence to the fact that it was originally supposed to be around the size of the TOS-E and refit, but was retconned into being larger because of the shuttlebay and engineering area sets. Sadly, the CG artists clearly didn't get the memo and the windows that were originally modeled into the mesh still imply a smaller design at around 300 meters.

I'm still kind of baffled how big the Kelvin was, as it was supposed to have been built in the pre-timestream-split prime universe and there has never been any evidence in any iteration of canonical Trek that Starfleet built ships that big during that era. THIS almost implies that there may have been a split prior to Nero's arrival.
