Why is NASA wasting its time with Mars rovers and space telescopes when it could be building the Starship Enterprise? All we need is $480 billion. That's all it would take to get the raw materials and assemble it in orbit, according to the folks at Gizmodo. Oddly enough, not only does the cool tech inside the ship already exist (mostly), it's the least expensive part. The replicator and holodeck only cost $300,000 and $6 million respectively. The only thing we're missing is the dilythium crystal engine, but hey, while we wait for that to be invented, we'll have a weaponized Starship Enterprise space station. Pretty good deal for $480 billion.
