From a game stand-point, where is the Enterprise being constructed?

mostly likely Earth Spackdock... after all, the Enterprise is an iconic ship, no matter the form or the letter attached to the name of Enterprise... and Earth Spackdock is self-explanatory

Actually, in official trek canon not a single Enterprise is said to have been built in Space Dock. The listed official construction and systems integration sites over the years are:

Warp 5 Complex
Earth Station McKinley
Utopia Planitia Ship Yards
& the San Francisco Fleet Yards

...so, it wouldn't be farfetched if we saw the Odyssey coming out of Mars orbit like the Galaxy-Class once did, hehe.

You know, The USS Enterprise, whether it be the NX, Original, A, B, C, D, E, and now F have all been instrumental in the expansion and protection of the Federation. These ships have been fortunate to have been captained and crew by some of starfleets finest. Starfleet recognizes this, that's why there have been 8 ships named Enterprise. (12 if you assume that the J will exist in the future.) I am surprised that Starfleet has never commissioned a class of ships Enterprise.

i would think an enterprise class would be an end to a saga those ships will eventuly get old and then no more enterprise at all

isnt the galaxy not capable of atmosphereic flight?

The sauser section was designed incase it needed to go into the atmosphere?

And i think it should be made from jupiter fleetyards..
As its the fleetyard responsible for a lot of prototype ships..

I'm not sure what atmosphere capability has to do with any of this...

"Expanded Univese" means fanfiction stuff.
Canonwise Utopia Planitia in Orbit around Mars is the big source for new ships.

(not: there's a Galaxy built there in that screenie)

oh no i was wondering if they built it on mars.... how did they get it into space?

Brought it up section by section and then assembled in space?

Because as i said.. and i might be wrong... so im not sure.... but the galaxy cant fly in atmosphere due to its sheer size and structural constraints.

Thats why theybuilt the Intrepid small, so it could do flight in atmosphere.

If im wrong... someone please correct me.


Also i bought up jupiter shipyards, because i was under the assumption, it was suposed to be like lockeheed martin's "Skunk works"

They are built entirely in space.
I guess you're being influenced by "Star Trek" (2009), the only movie where they built a ship on the ground.

Assuming Michael Okuda knows what he is talking about there is a paragraph with an explanation of the Galaxy Class construction process in this link. It was supposedly intended to be constructed in parts on the ground and final assembly was to be done in space.

That does seem to conflict with the image you posted, but the history of Star Trek is full of conflicting information.

They either constructed the parts on the ground and then assembled them in orbit or they did it all in orbit. Either way being capable of atmospheric flight is not an issue for a ship constructed in orbit. The Intrepid Class was not constructed at Utopia Planitia Shipyards because it was capable of atmospheric flight it was capable of atmospheric flight by design. That has nothing to do with where it was built.
