    Default Stargate Ship Sizes

    Having been on these forums for a while now I have seen people debating the size of various ships in Stargate. Some argue about lengths based on scalings done from screen caps based on various episodes (however different episodes can lead to varying sizes depending which company did the CGI effects for that episode).

    The other source of information is from the stargate wiki, which draws its information from the SG-1 and SGA collector’s magazines (however there is some debate as to the accuracy/canonicity of the information contained within these magazines).

    However I thought it would be interesting (as I have way too much time on my hands) to compare the ship sizes from the magazine to the sizes from the Ship Scaling Sprites thread to see where the two agree/disagree and see if a general consensus can be reached regarding the size of various ships.

    The Ship Scaling Sprites thread is available here

    Just to make absolutely clear I am NOT saying the information on the wiki regarding ship sizes is 100% correct (I have to admit that the figures concerning the sizes of the X-302, the death glider, the Ori fighter and the wraith cruiser seem ridiculously large), I am NOT saying the ship scalings are incorrect. I am simply comparing two sources of information and inviting people to debate the information.
    "So, what's your impression of Alar?"
    "That he is concealing something."
    "Like what?"
    "I am unsure. He is concealing it."

    "Well, according to Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, there’s nothing in the laws of physics to prevent it. Extremely difficult to achieve, mind you – you need the technology to manipulate black holes to create wormholes not only through points in space but time."

    Ok, I've been discussing this lately for use in my fanfic...

    The 304 is longer than 200m. That's only half a lap on a track and barely bigger than an Alkesh.

    Also, the Aurora-class Ancient warship isn't bigger than an Ori mothership. The mothership should be way bigger, especially laterally.

    For the life of me I don't know why a TV show would allow different scales between episodes...that drives me crazy.

    Here's a few numbers that a friend and myself have 'guestimated'.

    Aurora: 1100W, 2800L
    Atlantis: 8,500WL
    Hive: 13,000L, W?
    304: around 500m L, maybe as low as 375.
    Ha'tak: 1000ish L
    Ori mothership: 2000ish W, Length is probably 4,000+

    I assume thats Length and Width in meters?

    For this I will use my calcs, if anyone has a problem with these and evidence, please say so. If you have nothing beyond you don’t like them, tough.

    Calc's;

    Ok, here we have Ra’s ship;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/7229/b17ao.jpg

    And the pyramid it lands on, supposedly the size of the Great Pyramid at Giza, which is 230m wide;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/695/b28do.jpg

    Ra’s ship over said pyramid;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/5864/b35kc.jpg

    From this, we can scale;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/9773/b41it.jpg

    And we get that Ra’s ship is 353m in diameter. So far, so good.

    Now, we establish the appearance of Ra’s ship;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/7185/b53bo.jpg

    And now we fast forward to Cimmeria;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/9863/b67wu.jpg

    These are clearly the same type of ship. It is establish that these are used as landing platforms by the Ha’tak class of vessel.

    Of course, the Asguard put a crimp in the Goa’uld plans;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/3022/b72yp.jpg

    From which we can also scale;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/7692/b81ca.jpg

    This gives us rough estimates that put the Beliskner’s ‘head’ at 711m wide and the rear at 822m wide. In addition the fins turn out to be 320m tall.

    We can the use an image of the ship on schematics along with the width of the head section, to work out the length;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/6828/b96rr.jpg

    Using our 711m width dimension, we arrive at a figure of 1720m for the length of an Asguard mothership, impressive.

    In the meantime, we fast forward to the planet Juna, where we encounter another vessel of the type use by Ra;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/1671/b102io.jpg

    except this one is used by Cronus. Happily for us, this is the only time we see them being used in their intended role as landing pedestals, using the visible underside as a reference, we conclude that the descending vessel will reach the point highlighted (also confirmed in the 'previously on SG-1' section of the next ep) using this point and our scale for the smaller vessel we can scale;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/6382/b119qe.jpg

    Scaling reveals that out of 353m of width, the Ha’tak will land at a point where it is 230m wide. This actually makes a lot of sense, as it allows the Ha’tak’s to land on these vessels while at the same time their opening is exactly the right size to land on a more primitive stone pyramid, indicating uniformity of design.


    Skip forward to ‘Lost City’, and we have our first decent view of the underside of a Ha’tak, however, there is a problem, the opening is triangular, as it was with Cronus, thus, to land on a square based pyramid or ship, we must find a square within that will allow the pyramid in (230m per side);
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/835/b129wo.jpg

    Based on this, we scale the sides of the opening at 512m wide.

    Using this size we can then take a measurement across the entire Ha’tak;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/6074/b133vh.jpg

    Which gives us the surprising figure of 2017m wide for a Ha’tak class mothership from tip to tip.

    This would explain this shot;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/3483/b142af.jpg

    While the Asguard vessel initially appears larger due to its being closer, scaling reveals it to be slightly smaller. Once projected to a point where the ‘head’ of this Beliskner class vessel would be should it move to be level with the Ha’tak, we find the scaling supports the quoted figures, the 711m wide head section giving a Ha’tak width of 2023m;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/5246/b154ap.jpg

    From there we can take this image of Anubis mothership and a Ha’tak and, once perspective is compensated for, we can scale;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/8636/b169nm.jpg

    From this we find that the radius of Anubis mothership is about 2230m.

    We can therefore conclude that Anubis mothership is 4460m wide, not including arms. Thus, we can use this shot of the mothership in action to scale it total;
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/5602/b175qj.jpg

    With the arms taken into account the ship is 7945m wide, however, it should be noted that the arms add practically no offensive capability and are mostly a point of interest. Scaling via the Ha’taks in this scene support this scale.

    Now, the final scaling, using the rough 2000m figure for Ha’taks, we can now take the Ha’tak level with Apophis’s mothership and scale the ship and the ship with its arms (why do all Goa’uld have massive arms that invrease the width of their uber-ships but have not other discernible function?);
    http://img201.exs.cx/img201/2509/b184xt.jpg

    We get 4390m across for the ship and 9160m once the stupidly long arms are added in.

    Thus, www.stargate-tech.net were correct in asserting the two Goa’uld uber ships are of similar size, they are, although Apophis’s ship wins out in the uselessly long arms department.

    Thus, we can offer the following scales;
    Ra type pyramid; 353m
    Ha’tak; 2000m tip to tip
    Apophis’s Ship; 4390m (9160 with arms)
    Anubis Ship; 4460m (7945 with arms)
    Asguard Beliskner class; 1720m long

    you are not alone in that regard friend!

    after painstakin serching and comparing between the diffrent "THEORIES" on scales in the SG universe the conclusion i have made is that it is IMPOSSIBLE to acuratly calculate/compare to get the exact dimensions of the SG-ships as TPTB did a HORRIBLE job in this regard througout both SG1 and SGA! my point being as there are no official statements to the sizes we as designers/fans can do as we want when we build/imagine our versions! and argueing who is right and who is wrong concernig the sizes is more than pointless its STUPID as there is no "CANON" in this area for some stupid reason! we as fans/designers have to come to terms with that stargate is flawed beyond belief in so many areas its getting ridiculous and that some of you argue your "Theory" to the death is beyond words its a frikkin TV SHOW for cryin out loud! and a poorly written and produced one at that! IMO TPTB raped the potetial of the SG franchiese by allowing stupidity and Budget get in the way of the Epic potential of the Stargate Concept....

    Scales i use in my designs are
    BC-304 450-600m
    Lantean Aurora 2000m+
    Wraith Hive 10 000m+
    Ha'Tak 1000m-ish

    control-Chair
    Earth ships sizes

    X-302 [1]

    Length – 30m (compared to the 6m on the ship scaling sprites)
    Width – 75m
    Height – 5.5m
    seriously? 5.5m high? 75 M wide whereever you got this info from i seriuosly doubt that the one who wrote it had a decent understanding of the metric system....

    I started a thread a while ago, wanting to know the weights of the Stargate ships, it created a hot debate as to the actaul sizes of said ships. I will only mention the BC304 here,as that is a project I'm currently working on. The sizes of the 304 went from the ridiculous to the sublime, no two being even similar, I myself used a scaling platform, based on window apertures of about 1mtr to 1.5mtr's high, which made the 304's length approx 295 mtrs long. So in frustration I contacted MGM who provided thess sizes for me.

    good work on that but it still doesnt make any sence as its been shown to be much larger on occasion in the show but still goodwork on the information hunt! green!

    Then in this pic it shows that the 304's go into a hive 11.66 times. Thats no differnet and out of the question, 943 meters.



    And here the 304 is 18 times smaller than the hive. Now thats reasonable at 611 meters. I think that the specs in allies are wrong and the screenshot is correct.

    I agree that a 75m wingspan on the 302 is ludicrous. But if you remember Redemption Pt2 where they attach the beta stargate to the underside of the prototype 302, its wingspan wasn’t that much larger than the gate, which has a diameter of 6.7m, so maybe the decimal point is missing and instead of 75m wingspan is actually 7.5m which is more believable, the same could be true of the death glider and the Ori fighter.

    Nice one , I suppose this is confirmation that 304 are nowhere near as big as some of the scalings suggests and also means that any other ship sizes worked out from 304’s being more than 225m long are wrong as well.

    What is on screen > what they SAY is on screen.

    By the way, a 304 being about 3 football fields long? Does that sound right? I'm thinking both yes and no.

    By the way, how does that compare with US naval ships in length?

    fair question i have been wondering that myself... i'll have to look into that!

    and an add to that anyone have any idea on how the 304s land in the hangerbays of the 304's?
    do you think they use a hook trap system like on aircraft carriers?
    cuz to me the bays look alittle short for a regular runway landing...
    and by judging from flesh and blood the gravity in the bays are allways on exept for when visir was "riding the controls" manually to get carter safely back inside... so any ideas on how this might work?

    no clue. maybe an advanced form of braking? maybe reverse thrust?

    actually inertial dampeners will remove the problem.

    Not really...remember, you're in space. You're not going to 'drop out of the air' if you go too slow. So the answer is...you just slow down before you get to the bay, like 10mph or something like that. Then you just float inside.

    Seriously, with all the tech they've got now, the 302s have got to have anti-grav systems by now. If they don't, just dial down the AG for landing...just not all the way, or everything on the deck will move.

    Where are you getting these numbers? If you scaled them please post your work.

    The orthographic shot is the most reliable. GUI's and other graphics don't tend to use depth. The image of the 304 assaulting the back of a hive is unlikely to give us an accurate perception if one of the two are closer to the camera than others.

    Counting pixels is one of the more unreliable ways to guage on screen objects where depth hasn't been tested.
