FINALLY! A petition I can actually feel good about signing...

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/pet...eship/DB07k8jF

It's not exactly warp-capable but, it's a good start...

It certainly is festive, isn't it?

With regard to the petition: having witnessed the morphing of many promising space programs throughout the decades, I can safely promise that any effort to build an orbital replica of the starship Enterprise would -- after Congressional negotiating, compromising, and budget cutting -- come out looking more like the TARDIS instead.

And it'd be orange.

It's a spam flag. Probably chose a weird time zone.

Wouldn't a "Gen 1" Enterprise be the TOS version?
