Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast

Standard Orbit 287: Bigger is Better

The Size of Starships

It is time to geek out with Hayley and Ken as we discuss the size and functionality of starships in the Star Trek universe and beyond. Why are the bad ships always bigger? Should size even matter? Did the Kelvin timeline universe get it right or were they too big?

Starships have always been a mainstay and as much of a character as the cast. Ken and Hayley discuss the potential reasons for the size of the ships between the series and in the Kelvin timeline. Get you Geek on and Boldly listen!
