One thing I really like about this is the ship is being built BY HAND. We have all the automotive technologies available to us and yet they use dock workers to do the job.

Great stuff.
Well we've never really seen worker-bots in Star Trek - that would stick out even more I think. And I don't know about you but I'm more comfortable with actual human hands putting this together since its far from a car where all the pieces just get snapped into place over and over and over on a line.

Skyscrapers are still built by hand, so are boats and even the space shuttle I think for that matter submarines though done on a line there are human hands getting down and dirty putting the puzzle together - I dated a girl who did the wiring at Electric Boat for our subs.
