* The whole story of ''ComicBook/{{Pouvoirpoint}}'' takes place on board the Entreprise-2061, a starship so big that it extends beyond the frames and we never see the full picture.

* The ISV ''Venture Star'' in ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' is stated [[AllInTheManual in some sources]] to be about 1500 meters long (almost a mile). The same is true for its 11 sister ships of the ''Capital Star'' class. In fact, the length is considered ''small' and is only possible with the use of {{Unobtainium}}. The original ship sent from Earth to Alpha Centauri was 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) long in order to make room for massive refrigeration units for the magnets keeping AntiMatter contained.

** According to [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bkt7TE1CIAAH3Fm.jpg:large an image in one of the devs' Twitter feeds]], Voth ''Citadel''-class dreadnoughts measure up at a bit less than nine kilometers long and nearly five kilometers wide, while the ''Bulwark''-class battleship is just short of a kilometer. And then there's the Fortress ship in "The Breach", which is in PlanetSpaceship territory.

* The ''Series/RedDwarf'' is 6 miles long, 4 miles tall, and 3 miles wide, according to the novels. The TV show states "5 miles long" repeatedly, but we might assume this refers to the ship's habitable volume, and the 6 mile figure includes the ram scoop and main engines at the front and back of the ship respectively. It originally had a crew complement of 169. Then in series 3 it was [[RetCon retconned]] to [[SerialEscalation 1,169]]. Then since about series 7 or 8 [[UpToEleven it was retconned again to 11,169...]] Interestingly, Lister still gives his crew number as "000169" in season five of the TV show despite it having been retconned by then that the original crew was substantially larger.

** One rumored Ork ship is also a planet, which moves around as needed. It is also a massively overgrown Ork, since the species in theory never stops growing.
