I don't remember seeing anywhere on the site that we can't try again, but I didn't create the petition so I'm not sure. Whatever happens, we'll just continue to spread the idea and refine the concept. Losing the petition will not sink or even really set back BTE.

As I said in my last post, the nacelle struts (and the ship as a whole) don't have to be identical to what we saw in Star Trek. The ship only has to look enough like the Enterprise to bring it to mind.
