Between these which is the largest?
The Enterprise-D is biggest* as far as overall volume is concerned, although the Enterprise-E is slightly longer.
In one version of Trek's future, though, it would presumably be the so-called Enterprise-J (designer Doug Drexler estimated the ship was about two miles in length).
*I'm not touching the nuEnterprise because her size apparently varies last time I heard, but she's presumably up there with the Enterprise-D (or maybe not).
Between these what? Each ship named Enterprise? The Enterprise-D is the largest vessel bearing the name to date. It had forty two decks and could hold a crew of more than one thousand people.
The Ent-E has a lot less internal space than the wonderful Ent-D, definitely. I wouldn't be surprised if the Ent-E is smaller on the inside than the Ent-C (Ambassador class), honestly.
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.
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.
(comparison to the Sovereign-class--warning: big-arse image)
I voted for length but the D is bigger, volume wise.
The Bad Robot Enterprise.
Enterprise NCC-1701-D: 642m
Enterprise NCC-1701-E: 685m
Enterprise NCC-1701 (alternate reality): 725m
The Enterprise-D has the most internal volume although the -E is a little longer.
The USS Vengeance dwarfs everything, at about 1450m.
Jay, 1+ mile long, many times the internal volume of the D.
I do believe the thread's over, then !
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.
I agree. I like the Enterprise-F, but I think the proportions aren't quite right.
Some people just like fat chicks.
My vote go to the Enterprise J.
How do we know the E-J is to that scale, though? All we see is a blurry image on a monitor in Enterprise.
You'd think in the future, the long range vessels would get smaller as the technology got better.
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.
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.
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!
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.
The last thing a crew (unless you are an android) is to live in cramped conditions while far away from home.
Small ships sux.
