You didn't include my length... something GREATER than 289m, cause well, I'm sure they don't care what the original length of the Enterprise was.

Tim: Yup, I was well aware that designs have been traditionally done in feet. But if you picked 113m it would be impossible for anyone to beat you if the ship was 370 feet. So nyah and double-nyah.

Shik: I believe the answer to your question's in my original post.

Andrew: Eaves is a hugeass TOS fan. No worries there. So give me a number already.

BTW, I'm guessing that the contestant that comes closest to the actual length without going over gets a chance at the showcase showdown..?

Luckily, in this situation, it's closest to the actual retail length but you are allowed to go over.

And if you get within 2m I'll give you both showcases.

I chose 23.5 meters becuase a half meter helps alot

I highly doubt that ship will be no larger than the E-nil. I also highly doubt the ship will be the size of a runabout.

137m compressed. I think/hope there's gonna be some kinda variable geometry thing happening which may affect the craft's overall length...

Yeah, I chose it first! Although now I'm thinking it's way too large. . .

*flaps the "last lap" flag*

You have exactly 24 hours to put in final bets, or less if the TV Guide poster leaks first.

At which point the incessant scaling dicussions will kick in. We won't crown a champion until we get an "official" figure from the horse's (Eaves) or the pony's (Drexler) mouth..
