Playing With: Planet Spaceship
: A ship the size of a planet or moon.
- Straight: The USS Ginormous is the size of a moon.
- Exaggerated: The USS How The Heck Did They Build Something This Big is the size of a whole solar system.
- Downplayed: See Mile-Long Ship.
- Justified: The USS Ginormous was constructed by hollowing out a large asteroid, or by attaching freakin' huge engines to an actual planet.
- Inverted: The USS Really Really Small is less than -100 kilometers in diameter.
- Subverted: The USS Ginormous looks like it is the size of a planet, but it was just an illusion or other trick used to make it seem bigger.
- Double Subverted: The illusion didn't really make the ship seem bigger, it made it seem smaller.
- Parodied: The captain of the USS Ginormous sees some planets orbiting a sun and decides, "When in Rome..."
- Zig Zagged: The size of the USS Ginormous is inconsistent. In one scene, it is being maintained after landing on a planet, in another scene, it is big enough to cause a solar eclipse when passing in front of a star and later on the ship is bigger than the Sun.
- Averted: The USS Ginormous is only 500 meters long.
- Enforced: The executive producer just came from an Archive Binge of David Weber's Empire from the Ashes.
- Lampshaded: "How in God's name do they even move that monstrosity?"
- Invoked: ???
- Exploited: ???
- Defied: Government officials ask some engineers to draw up plans for a Planet Spaceship. Engineers ask government officials what they've been smoking.
- Discussed: "Look at the size of that thing!"
- Conversed: "My Willing Suspension of Disbelief took a nosedive when the writers brought out a planet with engines on it."
- Deconstructed: The gravity well of the USS Ginormous destabilizes the solar system, resulting in Apocalypse How.
