Default The ambitious plan to build Star Trek's USS Enterprise

http://theweek.com/article/index/227...uss-enterprise I'm not quite sure what to make of this. I mean obviously it would be awesome, but is the "Enterprise" even the best model for a real ship?

Hmmm interesting Would the benefits be worth the cost? I have a feeling part of this guy is just so determined to play out his childhood fantasies.

It would have to be built in space after we successfully mine asteroids for metal and are able to process it in space. It would just be too expensive to haul that much material into space. Our tiny space station cost 100 billion. His estimate for a giant ship at 1 trillion is too low.

Way too low, and until we figure out a way to make FTL travel a reality (and deal with the compression of matter when an object does travel at the speed of light), it's not a very practical idea.

At first I thought this wasn't the dumbest idea I'd heard recently.

I was wrong.

Warned you we tried.
Listen you did not.
Now screwed we all will be.
