Re: Starship Size Argument™ thread

My issue with the ship scales for JJ's reboot is that the ships seem too big. A super-ship for no reason just seems dumb.

It brings to mind the idea of an idiot director screaming the word "bigger" at the effects guys because he's a member of the key demographic of beer commercials.

I will admit that the 366M version of the ship seems too small, but the VFX guys jacked the ship up as if they were adding bigger boobs to their computer woman in Weird Science. Also, they seemed to do it in the simplest way possible; it's as if they just went into the options menu and clicked the ship size box from 100% to 200%. They didn't bother to shrink any of the outer ports or windows on the ship's hull to fit the more massive size.
