Hoity-toity bloody aerodynamic poser craft, all sleek n shiny many of which never even enter an atmosphere, all form and no function.

It's cold outside, there's no kind of atmosphere!

I bet when they fly up to one another they're always in the same bloody horizontal plane too, surprised they aren't in front of a white garage door.

To the point:

Sleek? fast n furious? Nah, get the job done:

Ooo 2nd death star 900km.

If anyone is into audiobooks and Sci-Fi and wants to send me a couple of usb keys I can fill them with around 15000 Sci Fi books on pdf and audiobooks from Terry Pratchett, Bruce Sterling, Wiliam Gibson, Iain M Banks. All you have to do is pay the return postage.
There's around 30 gig of stuff.

Back in the '80's we used to do a lot of moving work for George Lucas-we moved most of their props numerous times-found an old photo of myself and another guy in front of the Death Star-I also moved Yoda several times.

In regards to Vogon ships, it depends if you mean TV series ships or Film ships. If the latter its easy to gauge size as they're parked in the centre of every major city on the planet which explains alot :roll:

Millenium Falcon all day long. Sure its only real selling point is the lightspeed, but its too iconic!
