Re: Can USS VOYAGER separate from saucer section?
If you can in deed endlessly hover, why devote any internal space to those four legs?
Technically, if you're hovering (regardless if the legs are touching the ground) you haven't actually "landed."
Hovering does look more dignified than landing on those tiny feet.
