Re: Does The Enterprise Orbit

I think in a majority of cases, TGirl's right about TOS and how they handled orbit (usually a powered orbit). They just kept the ship hovering over the beamdown area.

However, the TOS Enterprise was able to beam back kirk and crew from 30,000 km away (Obsession) which is only 5,000 km shy of Earth geosync orbit altitude. It might be fudgible to think that beaming range could go a little farther...
