Anything over 200 meters is definitely too large, I can't imagine the fresh young Starfleet having that kind of industrial production capacity. So, I'm gonna go with a nice rounded figure, say 175,3141592654 meters.

Bah, I'm still called her the Pre-E. And for my wager, I'll say 280 m.

Mark... it's supposed to be SMALLER than Kirk's Enterprise.

My guess: 156.7 m

Nit: Starfleet won't even be around until 2161-- and new ships [specifically built for Starfleet] shouldn't start rolling off the lines until really close to 2170.

However my bid would place a reasonable size around 100 meters... however knowing TPTB we'll probably get one that's 10, 100, 1000, and 10000 all at the same time.

I'm going for small so 23.5 meters. Then in episode 2 it will be 700 kilometers.

my guess: 186M.

But we could also start a new pool on 'the likelihood of being told virutally no information whatsoever on the Enterprise in the first ep'.

I've rounded the guesses of you fraction-touting jokers. NightWing's guess of 250m has been disallowed, as Vogon Poet beat him to it, but I'll welcome a re-wager.

Has it occured to anyone that this might be something totally different from what we're familiar with? What if these seven officers are the only crew aboard? Why not? Then we'd be dealing with some sort of glorified runabout, no bigger than an Akira.

As I recall, the Big-E is 289m, so my Pre-E guess is a hair shorter at 280. In any case, I'm sure it will be longer than ths largest estimates at the Defiant's size, i.e. > 170m.

I'm also wagering that Eaves carries through his sleekness paradigm that he used on the E-E to Series V. Thus, the Pre-E will be just a bit shorter, but overall smaller in size and volume, just as the E-E was to the E-D (granted, the E-E was longer, but you get what I mean).

[head spinning at all the E's...]

Omega: Well, even by Frank's rather minature estimate of an Akira's length, Akiras are hardly glorified runabouts.

And while the idea of a really small ship is certainly a possibility, the fact that they're filling three soundstages with sets seems to be a strike against that. Besides, what would Star Trek be without redshirts?

Nonetheless, should Mr. Omega choose to submit a small figure for length, it will most certainly be welcomed.

Might as well boldly go between a couple of other guesses. 180m.

I'm not a "fraction-touting joker". I chose 112.776m because it's 370 feet. The Trek VFX people seem to prefer lengths in feet, so I figured it would probably be a round number of feet, and thus a fractional number of meters.
