Does anyone else think that maybe human beings were never meant to leave earth in the first place? One of my favorite tv shows had a line in it that I always agreed with. Is the earth trying to tell us something? Pulling us back down like it does? Now, I'm all for building a space faring vessel that doesn't return to earths atmosphere, but I think we can wait. We currently know so little about our own planet that it seems logical to stay and explore it more before trying to travel to others. And if a ship is built, a design like the enterprise, or any star trek ship, isn't very realistic. Something closer to the galactica (2004) or even a star destroyer would be far more feasible, especially considering that the mass of the saucer section alone would put the neck under extreme stress when turning.
