Re: Andrew Probert's ST:TMP Dry Dock to be Orbited by 2020!

Well, not exactly, but I am rather struck by the aesthetic and operational similarities between Andrew's ST:TMP dry dock structure and this real-world proposal from 2004 by USAF Research Laboratory engineer James Michael Snead for a "Space Logistics Base" to assemble and support CisLunar transfer vehicles...
Eh, there are only very vague similarities to me... like being a structure in space that supports spacecraft.

But given your, um, unnatural affection for Probert, I'm not surprised that your love-struck eyes see more similarities than I do, TGT.
