Hi everyone – I thought the folks in this section would enjoy this site I stumbled across. It lets you drag and drop images of the starships from various shows, books and games to compare them to each other.

It goes right from one pixel per meter to one pixel per two kilometers. More interestingly, in the works are scale comparisons to super giant structures such as Dyson spheres and Niven’s ring world.

Ye shall be foolish as I; ye shall scatter, not save;
Ye shall venture your all, lest ye lose what is more than all;
Ye shall call for a miracle, taking Christ at His word.
And for this I will answer, O people, answer here and hereafter,

Yeah, it looks like a great site in principle, but for those of us with dial-up connections it takes forever to load.
