Re: What does a New colony need?

Looking at colonies and the size of starships in the Star Trek universe, I always wondered why they don't take a hollow starship saucer, build a town inside it, add landing gear and plop it on a planet, cut the roof off and you're done, buildings, infrastructure, fusion reactors from the impulse engines, it's all there and the colonists has already time to move in and meet their new neighbors and colleagues, so when they reach their new home they don't have to start from scratch.

Sure, your entire city has a metal floor, but it's not hard to cut it open for parks or to let a river run through.
