How big is it?
When you're in space, it's really hard to determine scale. At times, the only way to get an idea about how big an object is is to compare it to something that you're more familiar with. This has led Alex to ask (of many objects in the Star Wars universe) "What is that in Enterprises?". The Enterprise comparison was started in ESB 37 by Tim Kreider.
Below is a list of Star Wars-related objects, and how big they are, according to our hosts and guests.
Note: These are not the canon actual sizes, they are based solely on what is stated on the podcast.
