Re: Teaser online in better format

This has got to be the most inefficient shipyard in existence! Do you mean to tell me that they haul every individual plate out there by hand, one at a time? No carts, no nothin'? If they beam the stuff out there, why can't they just beam it into place, with some sort of self-bonding agent, so they don't need to weld it? Besides, I just can't buy that that far in the future, we'll be welding these things, anyway - adhesives, nanotech weaving, you name it - not welding.

Also, that must be one hell of a strong neck to support the entire saucer in one G - where is the cradle? Or do we assume that they're using anti-gravity to held it up at the same time they're using gravity to walk around on and in it?

Nice shots, tho

^ No pallets, no forklifts, no trucks hauling materials in and out of the worksite ?

I liked it a lot. Effective, straight-to-the-point with a great atmosphere.

I think the camera is pointing down at the top of the saucer here actauly, it's hard to tell what's going on here really....

Like I said we need Denny Crane to look into this

One thing I really like about this is the ship is being built BY HAND. We have all the automotive technologies available to us and yet they use dock workers to do the job.

Great stuff.

Yeah, one of the trailers had that. The trailer on the official site still says Christmas. It would be weird to delay the release by one day.

It's a colorful metaphor metaphor!

Actually, it's a rather monochromatic metaphor.

Other threads have rationalized the 1-g construction with answers ranging from anti-gravity devices to compensate for the lack of aerodynamics to the ship being built to handle greater loads at warp than it has to in 1-g. Personally, I'll accept those answers, but I'm not comfortable with them.

Well we've never really seen worker-bots in Star Trek - that would stick out even more I think. And I don't know about you but I'm more comfortable with actual human hands putting this together since its far from a car where all the pieces just get snapped into place over and over and over on a line.

Skyscrapers are still built by hand, so are boats and even the space shuttle I think for that matter submarines though done on a line there are human hands getting down and dirty putting the puzzle together - I dated a girl who did the wiring at Electric Boat for our subs.

Holy crap, the one from youtube the other day...I couldn't see any of this.

I had no idea they were actually showing all those pieces of the ship.

Judging by the box-with-circle thing, I'd say we're looking directly overhead either the port or starboard edge of the saucer. Where the red/green running lights would be.
