Starship size comparison chart updated

We here are ShortList.com have an apology to make. We made a mistake, we mislead you and for that we are truly sorry.

You see, late last year we shared an exceptional poster with you all. The work of German graphic designer Dirk Loechel, it was a size comparison chart the likes of which we'd never seen. We were rightly impressed, and made the bold claim that "every sci-fi starship" was contained within its monstrous depths.

We were wrong. As word of the poster spread, more and more sci-fi aficionados came forth to point out oversights, errors and ships missing from the star-gazing canon. The poster didn't contain every sci-fi starship ever - just a great many.

We should point out that Loechel never made this claim. He's just a fan of spaceships, inspired by the work of Jeff Russell, keen to help sci-fi fans gain a context for their favourite vessels. And he's carried on his amazing work. Below we have the updated Starship Comparison Chart, bigger than ever before. It's added missing Star Trek gems, Red Dwarf essentials and a heap of others. It's not every ship ever, but it's not far off.

And no, the TARDIS isn't on there. It's too small.
