Image of the Day: The most ambitious side-by-side comparison of fictional spaceships ever

Have you ever wondered how the Death Star might stack up size-wise against Serenity, or any other fictional ships from a boatload of other sci-fi franchises? Well, wonder no more.

Artist Dirk Loechel has put together what might be one of the most ambitious works of franchise-spanning geekitude in history, rolling in side-by-side comparisons of ships including craft from Star Wars, Star Trek, EVE, Dead Space, Firefly, Starcraft, Farscape and a few dozen other franchises in between. He's been working on this thing for a while (obviously) and this represents the latest and greatest draft.

It’s absolutely fascinating to see how all these disparate sci-fi properties shape up when placed side by side, and we could geek out over this thing for hours. Seriously.

We’ve included a drastically scaled-down version of the chart below, but if you want to see the full piece in all its 4,268 x 5,690-pixel glory, click here. You won’t regret it.
