If you've been missing ye olden days of squinting at barely-readable screens of text, long no more for "New Ground"(RNG5) has something you need!

http://tng.trekcore.com/hd/thumbnails.php?album=119&page=14

Looking here, we see two images of Riker's console . . . most of the details called out are relatively obvious and covered elsewhere, but there's some interesting bits in a block of text on the right, including length, width, height, mass, and more.

The problem? You can barely read it, naturally.

What do you see?

It's a standard infographic about a Galaxy. I can see "std crew complement: 1012 persons", "maximum evac capacity: 15000 persons", "standard environment: class M crew", that sort of thing. A bit on cruise/max warp speed.

The top says "Built At Starfleet Utopia Planitia Yards", followed by overall length/height/width & gross vehicle mass.

Yes, but those are interesting digits. To my knowledge IIRC they don't otherwise appear in canon.

The mass is particularly of interest to me given the volumetrics project at my site. It looks like a 5 or 6 leading off, which is different than the tech manual figure IIRC.

Mass values often vary widely from ship to ship depending on equioment & materiel.

. . . and season of Riker.

Still, though, I wouldn't expect two Galaxies to be so different in mass (a million tonnes) that one could literally be hiding a disassembled Constitution inside.

The standard value is 4.96 million metric tonnes. Going up to, say, 5.24 isn't unreasonable.

Using Voyager's 700,000 tonnes as a guide, I'd expect it to be 6.5 million or so.
