My Starship's Bigger Than Yours... Neener Neener Neener!

Ok, I'll admit it. I'm a hardware geek. Star Wars to me wasn't about the zippy characters, or snappy dialogue, or overarching storyline. For me, as a nine year old (shaddup Damion), Star Wars was about gear. Lightsabers, landspeeders, and the starships, oh, the starships! One of the things that makes SF so much fun for hardware geeks is that, since almost by definition all starships from all universes must play in the same "physical world", you can actually compare them and have endless chick-repellant debates over which was better. Star Destroyer vs. Enterprise? B5 vs. Lexx? Battlestar vs. Bird of Prey? All were fair game.

Well, they may not have settled any of those debates, but this site at least lets you compare the various "wessels" with each other, to scale.

Yes, I know. Compared to the troubles of the world this is so trivial as to be, well, trivial.

But really, compared to the troubles of the world, what's wrong with a little trivia?
