Just had a look at the Red Dwarf intro, and I'd estimate the height of the letters at around 75 feet. Hard to get a good enough view of the whole ship to estimate its size based on that though.

Small | Large


The mining I assumed was for any valuable materials that could be obtained from asteroids, moons or whatever.

But seeing as it's a sitcom, I tend to apply the MST3K rule with regard to science facts.

Didn't they spend most of their time in Starbug 1?
I don't recall them spending a whole season in Starbug 2 --
I should rewatch all those --

The whole of series 6 was set in "Starbug 1" I think.

Actually, that was a joke on Red Dwarf. Remember the episode Kryten was being tested for his pilot's license, and he was failing, BADLY. He said the reason he was failing was that he learned in Starbug ONE, but was being tested in Starbug TWO. It didn't matter that they were identical.

Had the wrong intro there, the remastered CGI version. In the original intro, the letters look to be over 100 feet tall.
Small | Large

The books give the dimensions as six miles long, four miles wide and five miles tall, which would make it far more massive than the super star destroyer Executor. Doesn't seem to fit with the images on the show, although that could simply be because the book allowed Grant and Naylor to come a little closer to their vision of things than the TV show.

#45  How about Moya from Farscape. Hard to get a good pic of this one,all the ships on that show were CG, but it is a nice design.

The Gotengo from "Godzilla: Final Wars."  It is an updated version of the ship from "The War in Space" and "Atragon."  It has some obvious Zentradi influences from the Robotech series (and that series has some nice ship designs).

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
