Default the space station

hey I'm new to posting but I have always loved star trek but I was wondering. Are they gonna have the space station in this one or the space station under construction I think that would be totally kick ***. imagine that huge *** space station hovering over earth under construction.I would totally love that.

We'll just have to wait for the movie to find out. Be careful: you just may have ignited the "build on earth" vs. "built in space" debate. Although, one has to assume that spacedock exists at this time in Trek lore.

Ah yes, the irrelevant in the greater scale of things debate of whether or not the Enterprise was built in space. One of my favorites.

why are people fighting about it being built in space or on earth? I don't care how and where they built it either way is still cool

Trying to ground in science, not geek out here. The Enterprise HAS to have been built in space. Look at the design. The nacelle struts aren't designed to hold up the nacelles in a high or normal grav situation. The Intrepid class from Voyager is more plausible for a ground based construction because of the compact structure and having seen it land on a planetary surface more than once in that series.

omg i know about the youtube debates what surprises me about those is some people think it is actually the death star from star wars that is being build. C'mon! that is sad! I love star trek but who ever thinks its star wars in that trailer needs help some of the arguements there are outrageous!

Of course that is nonsense. The nacelle have to withstand 1g gravity, (it's evolved material of the 23th century!) otherwise a nebula, any gravitation wave, weapon..., that always shakes our 1701 crew in the series, would descroy the nacelle at once.

And better don't talk of correct science, because warp and beaming is scientific impossible. Even if there was a technology to warp the space in such a way, you would need thousand times of the energy the Enterprise could create..

There's only one problem with that... we've seen the 1701 in normal gravity situations. The nacelle pylons held up quite well.

I think it all depends on when the space station was built.

We know it was not there during the time of the show Enterprise. So, who knows, maybe it will be a added bonus.
