The size of the U.S.S. Shenzhou from Star Trek Discovery

The USS Shenzhou NCC-1227 was a 23rd century Federation Walker-class starship, under the command of Captain Philippa Georgiou. (DIS: "The Vulcan Hello")

  • The premise for all my deck calculations: a deck is 2.5m + 0.5m for EPS cables, power cables, ... = 3m height for a deck. Starfleet ships have 4m (3m deck high + 1m Jeffries tube). 

This is the side view of the USS Shenzhou:

With this information I have calculated a length of 375m.

The size of the ship is also reflected in the size of the bridge, which extends over one and a half decks (a human is between 1.80 and 2.00 meters tall).
