And big spaceships. The bigger, the better. You remember the opening of the original Star Wars. At the top of the frame, the Imperial Star Destroyer looms into view. And keeps coming, for what seems like forever. With this visual cue, Lucas communicates immediately the sheer scale of his story. In a long story, this can lead to a Lensman Arms Race in terms of spaceship size—each new construct eclipsing the last.

Who holds the record for Largest Spaceship of All? Ordinary, garden-variety depictions of spaceships are long since out of the running—not just real vehicles like the Saturn V -Apollo, but fictional ones that are meant to be big.

According to Wikipedia , those Star Destroyers range up to 2, meters, almost two miles. The second Death Star, from Return of the Jedi , spanned somewhere between and kilometers up to miles , according to the same Wikipedia article. For a long time I idolized E. A blogger going under the title Omnivorenz has done a detailed analysis of the various Skylark series spaceships.

Of course, if astronomers keep changing the rules on what counts as a planet, the two size ranges can overlap. But does it have to be a construct, a made thing?

They had assembled a fleet before which imagination quailed. Its flagships were suns, its smallest vessels, planets. An entire globular cluster, with all its solar systems and all their teeming worlds, was about to be launched across infinity.

The long line of fire smashed through the heart of the Universe [ i. In a moment of time a thousand suns had died, feeding their energies to the monstrous shape that had torn along the axis of the Galaxy, and was now receding into the abyss. TV Tropes collects a number of these references, and more, under the heading Planet Spaceship.

As we contemplate these logarithmic jumps in scale, we may note that after a point, the whole exercise can become meaningless. All we know is that the Empire made contact with—something—very strange and very great, far away around the curve of the Cosmos, at the other extremity of space itself.

What it was we can only guess, but its call must have been of immense urgency, and immense promise. The grandest justification for leaving our world may be sheer discovery—even if we end up, like the Puppeteers, taking our world with us when we go.
