Yay! You did the asteroid space dock! It was perfect!
Indeed. That, and the Archer mention were two nice shout-outs to Enterprise (the series). ROCK ON!
Oooh, the asteroid spacedock pre-dates Star Trek: Enterprise by quite a bit! It was part of the original Ralph McQuarrie concept artwork produced back before Paramount decided to go with Phase II. Here's a link that shares some of that artwork and discusses early ideas for the cancelled first film.
The article is interesting enough but not entirely accurate. The film and its production art was discussed in some depth in this old thread "Planet of the Titans Revisited" <link>.
