How do we know the E-J is to that scale, though? All we see is a blurry image on a monitor in Enterprise.
The designer gave some states on the ship, she's just over 1 mile long, and that the saucer is slightly thicker than it looks.

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.

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.
Nope. The Odyssey-class is a beautiful design that fits as an early 25th-Century vessel perfectly, while still being in line with the Sovereign-class.

He proposed that it's 2 miles long and basically carried a city inside of it complete with parks, universities, and residential & commercial areas. Instead of turbolifts, the crew used site-to-site transporters to get around.

Re: What is the largest Enterprise?

It's worth pointing out that the one and only time we saw the Enterprise-J ("Azati Prime"), we saw it from a window beneath the saucer section, yet according to the views of the completed model, she's flat. Oops.

I assume that they're making proper use of artifical gravity, and the bottom of the saucer is another ceiling - because if she's miles long. those windows are enourmous and it would take a brave crewmen to keep their orientation walking around on them!

Re: What is the largest Enterprise?

The schematic of the Enterprise-J that's been floating around this thread is just a fan's personal interpretation of the design (as well as it's size in relation to the Enterprise-D), otherwise we don't know how big the windows of the ship are. Along with the ship's original designer who did the completed model, quite a few fans have come up with their own versions of the ship though.

Re: What is the largest Enterprise?

Well, I suppose a ship that is called a Generational ship, is gonna be humungous. It could be the size of a Borg cube or Babylon 5 for all I know. Just don't know if it counts since we have no official stats on it, and we never saw anything other than a blurry pics, nor next to any other ship for a frame of reference.

Given that that timeline was basically erased, the Enterprise-J may not even exist, or may be a different design entirely.

I've said the exact same thing in other discussions about the Enterprise-J. I've always viewed this design along the lines of the three-nacelle Enterprise-D from TNG's finale.

Oh right... we wouldn't want to inconvenience the people who join Starfleet for the greater good by asking them to accept some limitations so we can build three smaller vessels with the same mission capabilities and cost of resources as one space hotel.

You're trying to be sarcastic, but yeah, actually. Making living conditions so crappy that no one wants to join would be a bad move.

Because so many people join the military today because of their high living standards.

I do think that living in cramped conditions aboard a deep-space starship is detrimental both to its crew and to its mission. A navy ship may be deployed for months, but a starship could be away from home for years.
