So, not to be too spoiler-y, but we've now learned this week that Discovery's crew complement is 134.

In my mind, this should put its size somewhere between the Constitution-class (289 metres, 205 crew (2250s)/430 crew (2260s)) and the Intrepid-class (344 metres, 141 crew).

Although, my suspicion is that — over-long warp nacelles notwithstanding — it will turn out to probably be a bit shorter than the Constitution-class, from fore to aft.

Also, we were apparently treated to a Klingon D-7 battle cruiser this week, but I couldn't get a good enough look at it to see how much they'd f*cked with the design, if at all.
DANGER. SPACE DOORS ARE CLOSED.

The problem with limiting the ship to a maximum of just 344m is the shuttle bay opening. The shuttles we see in ST:D are roughly the same size as those in ST:V. Based off a 1/1000 scale ST:V shuttle and a printed 11.5" / 29.3cm long model of Discovery. This scales out to 295m - just about the same length as TOS Enterprise. The shuttle bay doors aren't large enough to be what we see in the series, as they won't accommodate the ST:V shuttle or a 1k TOS Shuttle.

My guesstimation is that the ship needs to be closer to 380m to 400m-ish.
