If you are like me, you may have watched every episode of Star Trek and Enterprise. Probably you watched everything. Exploring new worlds is an imaginative journey. Normal life is mundane. People are incredibly earth-bound and boring. So, there is a charm to life’s greater wonders.

Here’s some news. According to an engineer, a fully functional Enterprise can be built if there is enough interest in the effort. His blueprint details the idea. It is as follows; the first nine years to research, component testing and possible blueprinting. The next ten years are dedicated to development. This is when components can be manufactured and launched into space for assembly. In twenty years, a fully functional Enterprise could be built at a cost of $1 trillion.
