How big are these things? I get the sense that they are larger than a jumper, but how does it compare to other spaceships like a Goa'uld Tel'tak?

Well a Jumper is smaller than a Tel'tak, especially in terms of interior space. So yeah... if you think the Shuttle is smaller than a Jumper they are probably smaller than a Tel'tak.

I actually got the sense they were a good bit larger then a jumper. They had enough room for at least 30 people without all the supplies and I don't think jumpers are that big. I'd say they are smaller then a Te'lTak because those have that large storage bay, but larger then a jumper.

Yea, much larger than a jumper, since there is no way that thing would be able to fit through a stargate (while a jumper can)

Oh yeah, I actually wrote that backwards, I meant to say the jumper is smaller than the shuttle. Whoops.

I think its about the size of two Jumpers, maybe a little more.

^This IMO. It looked fairly large.. I'd say about the size of the upper section of a tel'tak before the door to the back end.

To me, it looked a fair bit larger than a Jumper. I don't think a Jumper could hold seventeen people plus supplies. The most I've seen a Jumper hold is maybe nine? I'm not sure if that number's even correct.

It looked like about the size of a Goa'uld cargo ship to be honest

It should be a little bit bigger than Goa'uld cargo ship and also longer too.

but not as tall IMO

IT actually reminded me of the Pegasus asguard's ships in size and dimention. And i love the fact it had some sort of 'gas'; like thruster.

It's a Jumper on steroids. Almost Cargo Ship in size.

That ship was easily 10x the size of this shuttle.
Spoilered for size.

cockpit area: 21 feet wide, 17 feet long (6,4 m wide and 5.1m long)
back area: 18 feet wide and 15.6 feet long (5.4m wide and 4.7m long)

assume the roof is about 10 feet tall. (3 metres)

that gives us an internal area of 97.92m + 76.14m = 174.06m^2 (i'd do the square feet but im lazy)

oh the source for this was joes blog where a schmatic of the final shuttle design is shown

Yeah its not as big as a Cargo Ship, since most people seem, to forget that a Cargo ship actually has 3 (maybe even 4) rooms, since after the Cargo area is the engine room, plus where Toilets not mentioned once?

A Cargo ship can also fit 4 escape pods, as enough room for a well staged fight and has a ring platform. Looking at the floor space in the shuttle I doubt you could fit a ring platform without removing some chairs and consoles.

As for a Puddle Jumper, I would say the Shuttle is maybe twice as big. Since there room to move around, even with supplies and 17 people on board.

Compared to past ships I would say that the Shuttle is about the size of a Wrath transport?

I think it is larger than a jumper: it's compartement is probably equal to the entire interior space of the jumper or a little bit larger. However the shuttle's technology is not as compact as the jumpers, so that is his larger size.

I think the shuttles interior size is about as large as the Tel'tak cargo hold. But the shuttle is smaller than a Tel'tak

i also thought they were very similar and maybe there's a reason for that:D ,
Anyway I think it's abot the size of 3-4 puddle jumpers considering how mmany people fit in

It's definitely larger than a jumper, but smaller than the Ancient ships the Pegasus Asgard had. But the general configuration does look *very* similar to the Asgard-controlled ships...

i was wondering if someone else pick that up. In terms of shape and design wise that ship did look remarkably similar to the Asgard ones that invaded Atlantis. I wouldn't be surprised if the "aliens" who stole shuttle that was from previous episodes, turns out to be those Asgards from the pegasus galaxy. It would make more sense considering the suits that they wore are also "similar" to the ones in the next episode. Look below

lol but as for ship size i'll agree the with the post before mine "It's definitely larger than a jumper, but smaller than the Ancient ships the Pegasus Asgard had"
