DeviantART user lexinator117 created this scale-map comparing the sizes of nerd- and pop-culture touchstones. Now we finally know: American Godzilla is lesser creatively and physically than its Japanese counterpart. I've also either been seriously overestimating the size of the AT-AT walkers from Star Wars, or seriously underestimating the size of the Sydney Opera House.
Here's the key, from smallest to largest:
How about the Death Star? Star Destroyers? Any Battlestar Galactic references...
The list goes on and on...
There is some serious void in the nerdforce...

... i dont think the death star would fit on the graph, as it is supposed to be the size of a small moon.
they would either have to make a MASSIVE chart, or merely show a shaded curve to indicate to the edge of the deathstar.
or they would hve to shrink everything else down in comparison....
but all in all cool graph
I read your whole contact.. i really like it.
This chart is cool, if not a bit late to the party. Jeff Russell's Starship Dimensions www.merzo.net started covering this ten years ago.
Let's not forget - this is a 16 year old who did it for fun.
Notorious were the spaceships of french cartoon artist Philippe Druillet. The biggest could easily enter into the even bigger ones on the next page, and so on, and so on.
But the King of everything in my mind is Galactus, killer of planets.
