JJ said they were FILMED in CA, they don't necessarily mean the scene is SET in CA.

Dude, it was never said ANYWHERE that that Enterprise was built in the San Fran fleetyards. They're in ORBIT. They're not ACTUALLY at San Fransisco.

The CONSTITUTION REFIT of NCC-1701 was done at the San Fransisco fleetyards.

So PLAUSIBLY the Enterprise was built in Iowa on the ground. I mean they didn't always have space docks you know.

This is from Wikipedia:

San Francisco Fleet Yards (also known as San Francisco Navy Yards or simply San Francisco Yards) is a Starfleet shipyard located in Earth orbit, with its shore offices probably located in the city of San Francisco. There is also an orbital office complex near the drydocks of the yard. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture)

A silly question but How can you tell if a ship is being BUILT or REBUILT?

The problem I have with building ship on the planet is the ship Is massive and their is now apparent support structure for the warp nacelles and they are the most massive part of any star ship. The constitution class ship is more massive that a Nimitz class aircraft carrier I could see them building them in the water.

I'm tellin' ya', canyon isn't good for Star Trek.
Classic.

We're post world war III here remember? In Kirks time, we're post a lot of things. Who knows what environmental damage may have been done in all the years from here to there. Nothwithstanding the fact that just because the corvette has Iowa plates, doesn't necessarily mean it is in Iowa. We drive cars all over this country from every state. I see more different plates at work every day than you can shake an ear of corn at.
