Well going by a comparison side by side of the Odyssey versus the Sovereign (default look) of 685 meters, and seeing the Odyssey is roughly a 3rd longer, that would put the over all length of the Odyssey class around 911 meters, give or take. My guess.

The length of the ships don't determine the whole size of the ship. You need to revamp your chart or rename it a longest ship chart. The Galaxy Dreadnaught is the second largest ship to the Odyssey. It may not be as long as the star cruisers or Solvereign classes but it is far wider and taller than both, therefore giving it more volume and surface area. The more surface area, the larger the body. That would put the Galaxy X and regular Galaxy at second and 3rd place.

I came up with 1037m or 1090m depending on which your comparing it to, Sovereign or Galaxy. Here is a thread I did with visual comparison and a request to hopefully get some "Official" information on the ships length. Given that the Sovvy and Galaxy are close but not actually correctly scaled to each other makes establishing a certain size more difficult.

It was a nice attempt on your work there, but I have to say, having parked myself near a Galaxy and a Sovereign class for comparisons, your imagery there is a tad dubious.
it would also put the klingon ships in an entirely different category as they have far more girth than the fed ships do.
I have updated my ship chart with the Odyssey, and can confirm the estimate of around 1100 meters. I'll repeat here that my images were captured from a demo, with the ship at the exact same camera range each time, so the comparison should be absolutely precise. In fact, if the devs make their ships any bigger, I will have to change my camera distance, as the Odyssey almost didn't fit on the screen! As it was, the nacelles did go slightly over 1024 pixels, but I was able to overlap two images.
Another complication is that the devs appear to use a scale formula which does not exactly relate in game coordinates to meters, smaller ships are scaled slightly larger in proportion so they will be easier to see. Not as much as shuttles, but there is a small "fudge factor". This is why the grid on the left side of the table doesn't actually match the one on the right.
I realize that there are a lot of additional ships now, as well as the new Type 10 shuttle, however, all of the ships except for the Odyssey are merely reskins of the existing ships. Thus, while there may be a difference in length on the order of a half dozen meters or so, it is not enough to justify a whole new entry in the table. However, what I may do is put together a separate table or two (or four or five ) that relates the various ship skin choices to each other.
I may also add the Odyssey's saucer and escort, as well as the Galaxy's saucer, to the MVAM table, just to give it more variety.
To Alexin Cobra, while I understand that listing the ships in order of length is not strictly in order of size, it does give a basic idea of the progression of smallest ship to largest, which is what the players want to see. Note that my table intentionally places the ships at a pronounced angle, so it is clear how wide each ship is, as well as how long. It is clear from the image of the Galaxy that while it is not longer than the Sovereign, it does likely have more mass.
You may note from my revision history that I originally had the listing in order of mass. I found that too many people complained that they were not in order of length, however, insisting that I had put them in the wrong order. In addition, it is far more difficult to estimate overall mass of the ships, and that would make the table much too subject to opinion and guesswork.

Post for future edit: I will probably move the MVAM Chart here.

Yea I really think they should have made real dimensions in game in fact everything is wrong size wise, ships, stations, planets and ofc space itself XD

Anyone know how the chimera falls in this? Thinking about picking one up on one of my characters but want to get an appropriately sized bridge to go with it.

Just need the Aquarius escort, the Odd, and now the Vesta.
