    Default Size of the Shuttle

    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.
    Meh.

    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.

    ^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.

    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 ,
    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...
