No, you've missed the point because I'm talking more about starships than I am about submarines.
You're using an analogy that makes no sense, however. If two starships can detect each other, they cannot have a fight in any way comparable to a submarine engagement.

It's that simple.
Hardly, because I don't even think we're talking about the same subject.

Time for someone to restate the point.

Well I can see the analogy, but I would like to see a new modern Trek taking a more realistic approach to space where it could. In accordance to what we know about it currently.

No, we shouldn't treat space as an ocean.

We should treat it as a sea.

There is a difference.

I just see space as a big, wide sky.
