Starship Infographic

Infographics excel at several things. One of those is using visual elements to compare the relative size of things.

Detail of Starship Infographic

This awesome Starship chart, created by Dirk Loechel, serves not just as a visual catalog of just about every star ship that ever sailed the seven skies, but also a size comparison chart, labelled with name, length, and universe of origin.  It’s got everything you’d expect from your favorite sci-fi books, movies, tv shows, comic books, and videogames, like the Serenity from Firefly, the Star Trek Next Generation Borg Cube and the Star Wars Executor Class Super Star Destroyer (as well as just about every other vessel you can think of from those same universes), as well as the ships from Battlestar Galactica–both the original series and the recent remake–, Robotech, Halo, Stargate, and Warhammer 40000.

It’s also got less well known (and a few that border on esoteric) ships like Matt Damon’s ship in Titan AE, the mining ship from the sci-fi comedy series Red Dwarf, and even the American Airlines Valley Forge Class Agro-ship from the 1972 cult classic Silent Running.

Click for the full graphic at full resolution and spend some time perusing this winning infographic–clearly a labor of love.  Thanks to Nick Salvatore for sending it my way.
