Agreed. Also how many times does the moon appear in any of the near Earth orbit scenes in the movies?

The next TV Series should be called STARFLEET!

Drats! Curses! Foiled by numbers again!

(Although it would make for an interesting dramatic moment, just like in the movie "Pushing Tin" when John Cusack's character generated a "near collision" from the flight tower.)
