Largest Starfleet Starship

What is the largest Starfleet starship, either in terms of interior space or length x width x height? I'd have to guess it to be the Enterprise-D unless someone can think of a bigger one...

It's the Galaxy class.

Re: Largest Starfleet Starship

The largest Starfleet starship to ever appear anywhere on screen so far is the upgraded Enterprise from "All Good Things".

The largest fan design that I've ever seen that serious attention was paid to was the Oceana class U.S.S. Chamberlain at Star Trek: Dark Horizons IIRC.

It is a 2400 meter long, 84 deck ship specially built to fight the Borg.

Re: Largest Starfleet Starship

The Galaxy Class is pretty much the only largest ships Starfleeet has. Some ships such as the Sovereign and Akira are half a size of them (almost large or same size but not quite).

Maybe sometime in the future or perhaps later in the 25th century we'll see some that are larger than the Galaxy Class.

Re: Largest Starfleet Starship

Well, size doesn't really matter in Trek.
To my knowledge the only biggest SF ship would be the Galaxy class.
The Sovereign is longer I'll give you that, but the Galaxy has about 10 more decks in comparison.

Also ... I'm not sure if it really counts ... but what about the Enterprise-J?
Sure it was an alternate time-line, but it's still a SF ship and seemed quite large.

Yeah, the E-J was pretty big...by looking at it, seems like it has 25 decks.

Re: Largest Starfleet Starship

The Nebula class was also very big considering it was basically a modified galaxy class. With the nacelles and engineering section directly under the saucer section. I think the best standard for measuring how large the ship is, apart from the obvious square feet, would be to measure its crew capacity. The Galaxy class can hold 1012 personnel and 200 visitors, while the Nebula can hold 750 personnel and 150 visitors. The sovereign class holds 850 crew members. [FONT=Verdana][/FONT]

Hey, it's not the size. It's how you use it!

Re: Largest Starfleet Starship

The biggest Federation ship that we have seen is PROBABLY the Enterprise-J

Other than that, it would be the Galaxy.

THE PROMETHEUS CLASS!

Obviously.
As if the Galaxy comes anywhere near as big as the Prometheus, what a laugh.
