Check out this site related to starship sizes:
http://www.merzo.net/index.html ('Starship Dimensions')
Note: You can click and drag the ship pictures.

How many kilometers do you imagine the Distant Worlds capital starships; to compare on that scale?

I like to imagine in epic terms so my number is 1000 km.

1 meter = 1.0936133 yards
1 kilometer equals about .62 mile
1 kilometer = 1000 meters

You're welcome.

Some examples to show to people that might have misperceived some popular starship sizes:

The Battlestar Galactica is only 610m. That's not very big compared to other science fiction starships. I imagine even my smaller ships larger than Battlestar Galactica. I imagine my CAPITAL ships at around 1000km... kilometers!

1 meter = 1.0936133 yards
1 kilometer equals about .62 mile
1 kilometer = 1000 meters

Moya of Farscape is 650m.
Galaxy class of Star Trek is 643m.
Sovereign class of Star Trek is 685m.
Andromeda of Andromeda is 1301m.
Romulan D'deridex of Star Trek dwarfs Battlestar Galactica.
Imperial Star Destoyer of Star Wars dwarfs Battlestar Galactica.
Super Star Destoyer of Star Wars is 19km... kilometers. Battlestar Galactica fits in its thrusters with room to spare. Super Star Destroyer is even bigger than a Federation Star Base of Star trek.
