    The Vengeance is so big that when it sits around the quadrant, it sits AROUND the quadrant!

    As big and fearsome this ship is here, it's probably no match for a re-fit connie from the prime universe.

    So, Vengeance sports 50m long windows, huh.

    ^Same size as those on the Enterprise saucer rim, which are the size of the one on the bridge - as I've already told you and even showed you.

    Why do you have such a problem with 23rd century starships being big?

    Explain!

    Consensus around here seems to be that the Starfleet in this timeline is more advanced than the prime timeline because of its encounter with 24th century Romulan tech.

    I have a problem with people who don't understand perspective, form versus function, and the size of a metre.

    So how about everyone chill out about the sizes of stuff and go start a nice, calm, clinical thread about it (with lots of measurements, diagrams, tables, charts, and citations from the book of "Things Bernd Says") in the Tech Forum?

    Or don't. Either way, the personal sniping in here stops now.

    So the Enterprise's engineering sections is enormous; the Vengence must have an engineering section the size of the grand canyon.

    Yeah, everyone knows size doesn't matter. It's all in how you use it...you meant starships...uh nevermind.

    Perhaps more advanced in some fields in 2258

    I am sure things have moved along more across all fields of technology between 2258 to 2270 in the prime time line.

    :lol: You can't miss with the classics.


    The poster reminded me of the 1976 King Kong poster where Kong was drawn so out of scale that he was straddling the towers of the World Trade Center gripping an entire airplane in his right hand.

    Is it odd I read that in a Dalek voice? Am I crazy? :wtf:

    It's completely obvious why that ship is so big...

    Captain Robau designed it to be his shuttle craft.

    According to the Jayne's Guide to Starfleet Vessels, Volume 34444998:

    "The Starship USS Vengeance is also known in all areas of Federation space as simply Robau".

    USS Vengeance, Capt. Robau, or Chuck Norris? Who wins? Discuss.

    One is an old has-been with a ridiculous following on the internet, the other of course, is a Starfleet captain. :biggrin:
