They copied Star Trek: Insurrection. Did anyone care then? Or is hiding a village-sized holoship from the natives underwater somehow okay, but doing the same with the Enterprise not?
I had forgotten about that. The only other reference of this happening I could initially remember was the Delta Flyer on Voyager in 30 Days
. But you're right - in fact the holoship only only sat at the bottom of the lake but then went into orbit. Too bad that the writers/producers of Insurrection
didn't actually show that ascension. That would have been cool.
edited to add: However IIRC the ship was not completely submerged.
It was completely submerged until they drained the lake so that they could get access to it.
