Re: Scaling the Excelsior Filming Model

I once worked out a size for the Excelsior at about 630 meters using similar analysis as King Daniel, but since I did it for a fanfic I mostly did it on paper and I have no idea what happened to it.

Either way, this seems to fit perfectly. With the odd shape of Excelsior's saucer, 620 to 640 meters seems almost perfect, especially when you consider that a large part of the saucer section must contain "machine space" inaccessible to humans, which would make the REST of the saucer a lot more spacious than it had been on previous ships.
