But why waste an extra ship and crew if you can build a transport that can also serve as a warship?
Because making something try to be everything means it's good for nothing.

I wish the Enterprise was even bigger than what people are saying. It should be at least 1,500m long. Longer!


It's still built on the ground too, just to piss people off.
At that scale, on the ground, the ISS's orbital altitude would send it into the hangar deck.
