Re: here is number 3 out of 10: starship

The only way you build the Enterprise on land, JJ style, is with bigtime anti-grav technology to loft it into space.

Otherwise you'd need a booster rocket that makes the Saturn V look like a toothpick, and that would burn a vast hole in the atmosphere.

Since anti-gravs are not around the corner in real life and we don't realistically expect them ever, you have to assemble your starship in space, like the International Space Station was put together.
