Indeed.  It will not fit on the deck of the Intrepid so they have to clear part of the pier.  They are leaving the strip club though.

 

I don't know how much green body paint costs but strippers will do anything for an extra hundred bucks.  If the owner will do it, he has just hit a major revenue increase.

 You know, I would pay good

 You know, I would pay good money to go to a strip club with a Star Trek theme, that sounds like it could be one hell of a good time.

It was morality that burned the books of the ancient sages, and morality that halted the free inquiry of the Golden Age and substituted for it the credulous imbecility of the Age of Faith. It was a fixed moral code and a fixed theology which robbed the human race of a thousand years by wasting them upon alchemy, heretic-burning, witchcraft and sacerdotalism.-H.L. Mencken

Beyond, you may not have a couple of details. It is your usual seedy joint on the Manhatten docks. However, it is on the same pier as a WW2 aircraft carrier that is permanently docked as an air and space museum. No Star Trek theme here.

 

Still, the Enterprise is about to get parked in front of a strip club. If you owned that club, would hundreds of gallons of green body paint suddenly sound like a much better idea than it did last week?

Strip clubs in a free market? NOOOOOOOOOOO, I am a commie pinko, we cant have people doing things they like.

Well, one thing is for sure, now when you go to that strip club, the strippers can beam you up.

The Russians parked their

The Russians parked their attempt to copy NASA's shuttle in a public park on the banks of the Moscow River - I saw it across the river, from a tour bus back in 2003.

It was apparently a theme park:

OK, the theme park is creative. Even so, the fleet is being sent to the largest air and space museums. I would tend to assume that one must go to the Smithsonian. I don't know if it will end up in the main building though. While they are only as large as a decent sized truck, bringing it through downtown traffic may be an issue. More likely, it will go to the annex at Reagan National airport.

 

I doubt that Huntsville will get one because the have had the one that would not test out as space worthy for decades. The others will go other places.

 

However, if they had sent us one of the others, there would not be the same probative value here. Endeavor, while also seen on screen as a Constitution class vessel does not get us to Orion slave girls. Also, if it would have happened already, The Intrepid was also seen on screen as Constution class, albeit crewed by Vulcans and with possibly disabled weapons.

 

Park the Enterprise there and I suspect that Orion slave girls are suddenly more probable. Rich Woods and I are going to have to finally get together for that beer we have discussed a time or several.

NASA announced the new homes for the shuttles back in April. There have been unhappy cities that did not get one. Houston and Huntsville for example.

They are going to:

Atlantis - Cape Canaveral at the KSC visitors center.

Discovery - Smithsonian Air and Space Museum for its hangar in Dulles, Va.

Endeavour -  California Science Center in Los Angeles

Enterprise - relocated to Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum in NYC
