Default Theory of Enterprises rise into space

Why not Tether it to bring it up. They are already working now on this technology. Tug boat like ships helping while in earths atmosphere.

Made a few rudimentary images to illustrate. Might be too vulnerable to completely assemble in space. Much easier to protect and keep more secretive on earth for all the bulk of the manufacturing. Just a theory.

Nice work with the pics!

I'm not an engineer, but if I remember correctly from some other threads, I think the arguement had something to do with the warp engine not being able to be built on Earth (the physics is beyond me).

I don't see any reason why the body couldn't have been built on Earth, and then "pulled" to orbit as you theorize....but I'll step aside for those who have a little bit more knowledge in physics to comment!

Yeah I have heard that argument and nothing says it has to be fully manufactured on the surface. All I know is its shows twice now on earth so far and they have to get it up in space somehow. As far as the physics all we have to go on is current technologies and what might be in this future. This is aside from any canon already established, or what we believe to be canon.

I think the parts could be pulled up and assembled in space.
Or the whole ship launches into space like in Star Wreck: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psf1ob2H6Us

My theory is simple. If you place a certain amount of expectations on something, you will only be dissapointed by what is actually produced on screen. How the Enterprise reaches orbit will be a surprise to everyone, and I don't think we should become anal with the details. This is going to be a fresh look at Star Trek: The Original Series. Nothing has been written in stone, so I'm going to enjoy whats next to come. This movie could endup falling flat, but I'm not going to allow canon to get in the way.

Why not just do it the old fashioned way? Thrusters and Impulse?

I mean just because we never saw it done doesn't mean that the original Enterprise can't feasibly enter the atmosphere of a planet and then leave it again.

I think that they'll unhook her from the shipyard on Earth and then she'll rise out of the atmosphere and away she goes.

Voyager did it...why can't this one?
