    They should have be thinking about a new Space Station and to Orbit inbetween the Earth and the Moon. We will need a new one anyways. Plus a safety net sort of.

    Although.....we should tell all that treaty don't apply now.

    Moreover the Europeans shouldn't have anything to say. When they can land on the Moon then they can talk.

    We need to be leading the way and looking to perpetuate our own.

    Howdy MMC, All I know is that if we accomplished a soft landing in 1969 with astronauts walking and driving around on the moon on dinasour computer tech, we should have a colony/colonies on the lunar surface by now!

    Mornin' Monte. Seems our focus was taken elsewhere.....I keep hearing about the money problems of doing this.

    Well.....I do have a solution. Anytime we get into a conflict for others.....they will pay protection fees. Then there is extortion, theft and robbery, and straight up gangsterisms.

    Now this I would do to some Nefarious groups out there and as well as other countries. Say like the Saudi, Qatari, Kuwaitis, and anybody that has money.

    Remember.....the Federation will require a President who must reflect Power.

    The US needs to get serious about space exploration. How about the space elevator idea? Why not start researching materials that could make it a reality? Just imagine the spinoffs that would be applied to buildings and vehicles right here on Earth. After we have a practical way to get materials into space cheaply, then let's start building a real spacecraft, one built in space and not designed to make planet fall, perhaps in the form of a wheel that could be spun to create artificial gravity. I'm not talking about a puny vehicle such as ply the Earth's tiny oceans, but a space craft that is measured in kilometers.

    Why not? Who thought we would land men on the moon in 12 years back in '57 when the Soviets put the first man made object into space?

    One thing tho.....Before I do any teleportation. I will let them work out the few hundreds of kinks first. Starfleet will be looking for volunteers.....just sayin.

    Oh, a project like that would take a long time, no doubt. I'd probably never live to see it accomplished, but I'd live to see the practical applications of the technology.

    Uh oh, a scan of the area shows that they have already started their spawning pool. Watch for zerg rush!!
