Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
there is a discrepancy between movie and any sw-game out there. in the movies a SSD is something about 20 km long, in games round about 8 km iirc .....

 
Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
Let's compare.

Darth Vader's Executor-Class Super Star Destroyer: ~19 kilometers in length.
Imperial-Class Star Destroyer: 1'600 meters.

The Executor is exactly 11,875 times bigger.

Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
Maybe the point WMCoolmon is trying to make is that they don't really look much alike beyond the basic hull shape.

Also, erm, that's 11.875, not 11,875, right? Because the latter is just ridiculous. And wrong.

 
Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
No. You are probably confusing a comma with a apostroph.

Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
Wait, what? I get the sense we're using different notations here.

When you say 11,875 times, do you mean 11 (decimal) 875 times?

 
Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
Try www.merzo.net.

It has most of the famous sci-fi ships (the Sath is there as well :yes:), and gives a pretty good size estimate for 'em.

Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
Yeah, my point is that the two look almost nothing alike besides the basic dagger shape. The coloration is different, the number of engines, the greebling, the size of the command tower, etc. They're clearly based on common design ideas, but saying that you should just be able to "scale them up" is like saying you ought to be able to scale up the White House and use it for the Capitol.

Yes, I do, because we learnt that in school.

It is, but some parts of the world insist on doing things backwards for no apparent reason.
Everything is better with monkeys.  Even pie.

That is the best first post I have ever seen.

It is 11.875
11,875 is eleven thousand eight hundred and seventy five.

Culcural differences. Back here, eleven thousand eight hundred and seventy-five is 11 875 and eleven point eight seven five is 11,875.

Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
That would be the depressed, antisocial, binge drinking Finnish culture. Also, I do know about these differences in mathematical expression methods. Back in the good ol' days, it took me a few tries to figure out that my brand new spanking calculator was using a dot where I would have used a comma, and a comma where I wouldn't have used anything.

Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
Actually we go

11,875 = eleven thousand, eight hundred and seventy five, but with computers ( IDK why) we now go
11 875 = eleven thousand, eight hundred and seventy five

11.875 = eleven point eight seven five
