Star Trek (Pic Heavy) in Ahto Spaceport Cantina Posted November 21, 2008 Stop being an ass, Astro. A friend and I were talking about the new Trek movie and he was telling how they didn't build any of their larger ships on a planets surface. I said "what about the Galaxy class on the surface of Mars" and he said something about it being a training facility. Now, if I really did care and got picky about it, I would've asked him for specific references and a 10 page write up including footnotes so I can find the references he's citing and confirm them on my own... but honestly, I just took his word for it. I would have asked for the write up. There is nothing to indicate that galaxy is a training facility. Training for what anyway? Why a galaxy class? That is an incredibly large starship to be wasted and used as a training facility.
