Re: Will there be an explaination for how enterprise can go underwater

The Flyer was also swimimg to the very core of a water planet, and so had a LOT more pressure to deal with than Enterprise, which isn't far below the surface.

Re: Will there be an explaination for how enterprise can go underwater

I would be concerned with antimatter containment failure while underwater or airborne. If a failure occourred, you could a devestated planet.

As opposed to, say, landing a malfunctioning Bird-of-Prey in the middle of San Francisco?

Re: Will there be an explaination for how enterprise can go underwater

Very much so. Anytime you have a real or fictional antimatter fueled spacecraft near, in the atmosphere, on the ground or in and underwater you can have catastrophe if fuel containment is lost.

Well, from what we know, the planet is doomed anyway if they fail their mission with that volcano.
And the Enterprise appears to be working 100% and isn't under attack, so antimatter detonation isn't a concern. It's not like Starfleet vessels are known to go around randomly losing containment and blowing up for no reason.

The Delta Flyer could be modified to go very deep under water. In fact, Janeway said the Voyager herself could do the same, but the necessary modifications would take too long.

I know it's "only" VOY, but it is still canon: Starships CAN go underwater.
But only with modifications. And even then, the Delta Flyer still leaked.
True...

But as 'Sindatur' implied above, being in Federation Space, the Enterprise would have better access to a more complete modification than the Voyager could possibly have; not just leaks, but everything.

Plus, as I mentioned, the Delta Flyer went very deep -- miles down -- which was where Janeway was willing to take the Voyager (after modifications).

I bet they sprayed the inside with that plastic spray stuff that the fake Billy Mays sells on tv. If you can use it on a boat with a screen door bottom, it can keep a space ship from leaking.

Works for me. Debate closed.

I have no problem with the idea. If I accept alien life forms, time travel, warp speed, transporters etc., I can accept this.

What's there to explain. It has a nice durable hull, enough power to warp space, shields that can withstand multiple hits from space laz0rs and torpedoes, it can survive the forces from being close to black holes and gas giants...it can handle a couple hundred feet of water.
You and everyone else beat me to it, so I'll just second (or third, or fourth) what you've written.

Enterprise coming out of the water will look just as cool as Space Battleship Yamato

But if your spacecraft (whether it's in space or underwater) doesn't have screen doors, how would you keep the flies out?

As long as you keep the flies out of the transporter room, you should be okay. Mixing flies and teleportation can get messy . . . .

So really, it's only the transporter room that needs a screen door.
