THE D’DERIDEX-CLASS WARBIRD AND THE GALAXY-CLASS STARSHIP

Never realized how much bigger the Warbird was compared to the Enterprise D. Always assumed they were the same size. Cool.

  1. As happens too often in the TV and film productions of STAR TREK, there are scaling problems – size comparisons differ from production to production unexpectedly. The specs above seem to go right back to the ST:TNG ship designers, at least in intended scale – that much is easy enough to infer even from drawings published online (a search on Google Images simply for “romulan warbird” will uncover many such drawings and associated discussions).

    Thanks for reposting this and for following my blog! 😀

  2. Back in the day, when military aircraft were switching from props to jets, the American aerospace industry had this joking but largely true critique of other nations’ aircraft (at least if the photographs I’ve seen meant to illustrate why the joke arose have any meaning):

    If it’s ugly, it’s British.
    If it’s weird, it’s French.
    If it’s ugly and weird, it’s Russian.

    Perhaps those in Starfleet (not understanding the ineffable weirdness of their own design paradigm) would have this to say:

    If it’s ugly, it’s Ferengi.
    If it’s weird, it’s Romulan.
    If it’s ugly and weird, it’s Klingon.
    😀
