Re: Does The Enterprise Orbit

^ There's also varying gravity to consider. Psi-2000 might have an acceleration of around 4m/s, which would give Enterprise a bit more time.

OTOH, we also have this weird thing in The Galileo Seven where the shuttlecraft apparently doesn't have enough fuel to maintain orbit for any amount of time. This would seem to be a dialog error, since a natural orbit would still be possible and technically the shuttle should be heave itself into orbit and then coast there for a while.
