I have seen the Nerd-Dork-Geek promised land.

It's here. Oh holy crap!

It's a side to side scale comparision of starships from various Sci Fi franchises -- film, TV, "literature", comics and video games. And not just "Star Wars" and "Star Trek". No, little one, the HARD STUFF is here.

Macross? Check.

2001? Check

Freaking Event Horizon? Ummmm, yeah.

Space 1999. Are you not listening? Did you eat paint chips as a child? YES, goddamn it, the Vorlon Planet Killer, the Halo, both Death Stars, the Malon Export Vessel -- I don't even know what the hell that is, but it's here goddamn it, it's here and that's what matters. Fuck yes.

There are 37 Star Fleet vessels represented alone. 37!!!! Bonus for IE users: you can drag and drop each ship, making little explosion sounds with your mouth.

It's a wonder that I found a woman willing to hold my hand, much less marry me.

More geek porn: Celestia. Works like a Google earth, but for a chunk of the known universe. You can bung over to the moons of Saturn and then piss off to Vega,making sweet star ship sound effects with your mouth. Awesome.

That is scary. And makes me think that you might also be scary. ;-) But on the other hand, it looks pretty interesting.

I may have overlooked them, but I think there are two glaring omissions: "The Phoenix" from G-Force, and Dr. Who's "Tardis." I was quite happy to see that they didn't overlook the ship from The Last Starfighter...god, I loved that movie.

"The Phoenix" off of "G-Force" Thankyou sir, and the memories come flooding back. When I was 6 I was convinced that was the most ace thing ever. Reet tup top good work G.

Although I must say the lack of the hammerheaded ship from "Battle Beyond the Stars" is a most serious ommission. Not to mention "Spaceballs" Tch these geeks eh - sloppy.
