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!

THIS is why Star Trek gets its "geeky" reputation. People get into heated arguments over something that has NOTHING to do with the show. I gurantee, there's going to be a slap fight in a theatre somewhere on Christmas day because of THIS VERY ISSUE.
yes I agree that and the drive by media make star trek out to be "geeky" I mean its really sad that star trek has been turned out to be that way to many people. star trek has so many different subjects. Racisim, polotics, and adventure and more that is why I love star trek.

as I said in a different post. "gene rodenberry would be impressed [ by this movie]"

I guess staying on topic is not easy for most? The question was about a Space Station, not where the Enterprise was built. That thread is here http://www.paramount.com/startrek/fo...thread.php?t=9

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..

Which space station are you referring to, the construction dock and office facility seen is ST:TMP, the Spacedock station like in my avatar, or...which?

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

I'm guessing that by "huge ***" he means the space station first seen in ST:III... you know, the one the Enterprise actually enters.

If memory serves me correctly the secondary hull and warp nacelles were assembled in space and the saucer section was built in the San Francisco ship yards. This because the secondary hull and engines could not withstand the forces of atmospheric flight within the gravity field of earth. This is evidenced in the Star Trek novel "A flag full of stars" (or "A field full of stars") has The saucer section being upgraded to "A" model configuration in the SF ship yard. The book has a whole chapter devoted to the launch of the sauce into space to be mated up with the rest of the ship.

It HAS to be built in space. Why else would the crew always worry about a collapsing orbit?
