That is actually pretty funny (also seeing the bridge crew of the enterprise standing in front of the LHC and turning it on is a pretty mental image I can't get rid of now). But as the conclusion was of the article, in the future we have futuristic alloys and a deflector dish. It's been said that the hull was created out of another alloy than aluminium (an alloy that took Dr. Cochrane and Lily Aldrin several months to collect a sufficient amount of for the Phoenix, which alludes to it being very rare on Earth).

Good read though, I like it when Star Trek has influence on real world science (and vice versa).
