Re: Why was the Enterprise.. [Spoilers]
But one thing did get me and that was the size of the Enterprise. I really don't care how big she is due to the above mentioned reasons but it shows them swim up to the hatch and that hatch doesn't look any bigger than the hatches that the shuttle pods connect with in TMP, TWOK. When I saw that I remember thinking they may say she is 700 or whatever meters long but she is the same size as the original.
Not unless it's a TARDIS.
