It's true. To be honest, they never had the intention of building a working starship; the total cost of the project would run in the trillions of dollars, and the campaign goal of $2 billion will never happen. Thus although they stated they wanted a real-life, working Enterprise with actual warp drive technology and real teleporters, in truth this was nothing more than a marketing ploy to get people interested in that area of the Badlands. So screw them for getting my hopes up of at least building a replica! I could see that, something with decks and fun bits we fans know and love from the shows.
False advertising or a clever marketing ploy? Annoyed by the announcement? Sound off below.
