That's a thought, and reminds me of my childhood, when on occasion my father and I would go to the airport, just to watch the planes. Of course, that was back when you could do that...before everything sucked.

I agree with T'Girl with my choice being the starship but it would be the Enterprise D. It has what it needs to explore the galaxy for long periods of time.

ENTERPRISE 1701-D

Powerful, Elegant, Equipped with Every Luxury and Where the Action Is! Not only that, but as the flagship of the Federation, she makes a statement. You know you're hot shit when you get assigned to her. These qualities are very appealing. And though I did not list them all, those are the highlights ...

Well said, Two-Takes...or, should I say Dr Malcolm?

One of my favorite actors, your avatar, and the writers give him my FAVorite quote of all time,

"Yeah, yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should."

Too bad Ricardo Montalban is gone, he could be cast as the person who runs the resort.

Re: Where would be your favorite Star Trek Setting?

Three options for me, listed in order of preference:
1. Deep Space 9, in 2376 with Kira in command
2. A Sabre-Class ship, to see how a crew of 40 handle the tough jobs out there
3. A decades old starship, she may have a few hundred light years on the clock but she's rugged and dependable

That would be cool and I'll fit it in as my third choice, preferably a Miranda class in TNG's (series) timeline.

Re: Where would be your favorite Star Trek Setting?

A starship in deep space, well enough out there that there's no hope of reinforcements and subspace communication would at least take several days.

I would make it a high tech, well armored ship but with a relatively small crew, say a few dozen. Small enough so any death is a big deal and they can't just pull redshirts out of the void to show how strong the enemy is.

Civilian life on Earth.
I really enjoy it in TOS-movies. Kirk's apartment, the bar, the Yosemite National Park and so on. Those short episodes show some aspects of private (not formal) life, reveal habits and personal features of characters.



I know, civilian life is not an perspective setting for action stories, but sometimes it's nice to distract attention from the starship and characters on duty.
