well an aircraft carrier would only be about half as big than one of the star trek starships with few exceptions.
1100 feet for a nimitz.
and then we face the problem of how big the ships in star trek actually are
lets say that a more modern ship from TNG was about 600 to 700 meters so about 2000 feet.
The USS vengeance is then about the size of an imperial star destroyer at around 1600 meters..over 5000 feet.
The new enterprise is as big as a galaxy class....
So star trek ships would be larger than real ships by allot. Several football fields...(300 feet in the US)-so the USS vengeance is about 16 and a half football fields long....
I think that the relaunch made HUGE ASS ships to one up original star trek. I am not a big fan of the idea. I liked the progressively larger ships as time passed. TOS to TNG having increasing sizes made sense as technology was improved.

The new starwars will suck more than the new star trek.
Starwars never had some the scope and depth in the characters as startrek so I cant see starwars as having anywhere to go but recycling the same old story about the fight between the light and dark side of the force using lots of CGI and tv looking actors. Omg its gonna be a disaster.
