I wonder how they would have solved the problem of building a starship on Earth! Lol!
But gotta love some of the things they come up with. This reminds me of the late 90s plan that was floated to build a resort hotel that was a full scale replica of Titanic after the success of Cameron's film. But it never worked out.
