Re: Do you want to see the Enterprise in your lifetime?

^ All quite true. I daresay trying to sell the idea of building an actual spaceship that "looks like the Enterprise from Star Trek!" as a serious proposal would elicit much more ridicule than support from the general public.

Re: Do you want to see the Enterprise in your lifetime?

Of course, I want to see it, but I never will, unless I live 150 years or more. I think that the ST dating is even optimistic and the discovery of FTL travel is even further in time. Not with that mentality, not with that economy.
