Sci-Fi Spacecraft Size Comparison

Post by TrueAnimationFan »

This is by far one of my favorite videos on YouTube. It was made in September 2020 by a channel called MetaBallStudios (or MBS for short). Dozens of ships from movies, TV series, anime and western animated films appear in it, all lined up next to a real world city (New York) to help with perspective. The last few minutes of the video are definitely the craziest. Can you even imagine how many centuries or millennia it would take for humans to actually build a craft similar in size to Gurren Lagann's Cathedral Terra or Halo's Installation 00?

I know that Star Wars takes place in the ancient past, but I'd say the ships from everything besides that count as parts of fictional futures.

Yeah, it's pretty neat. I already watched it few months ago. I didn't realize the Star Killer was bigger than the 2nd Death Star. When I watched the latest Star Wars trilogy, I had the impression it was smaller. Maybe I was thinking of the fact the Empire crumbled after the death of the Emperor and it didn't have the resources and manpower like they used to. Oh well.
To know is essentially the same as to not to know. The only thing that occurs is entropy.
