US to build "Battlestar Galactica" space battlecruiser
ok so there may be no official confirmation that this will happen.

But my point is it could be done now.

we have the technology.

If you watch BG then do you agree we could build a battlestar now minus the faster than light drive?

i think we could.

Shouldn't be a problem. Submarine building is not that much different than building a space craft and we're damned good at that.

why, so we can rain laser death down upon the earth instead of up from the sea?

Re: US to build "Battlestar Galactica" space battlecruiser
yeah - there was an idea in the 70's to use subs as space ships, hinged on the "dean drive" as a power source.

needless to say the "dean drive" didn't work though.

You could do the whole process from material processing to building the actual ships in space if you go about the process right.
Build mining and processing ships first, find some near earth asteroids with high metal content to mine, process the components and ship them to a dry dock to assemble the ship. The only parts needing to be lifted from earth would be specialized coatings and the electronics.

Still need a revolutionary propulsion system to be able to do just that...

Without a revolutionary and new propulsion system there is no use in building space ships...

Now, It can be done only be done at an enormous cost, time and possibly human lifes...

"Still need a revolutionary propulsion system to be able to do just that..."

nuclear rocket drives could provide the thrust.

with a ship as big as a battlestar plenty of room for shielding.

i did say minus the FTL drive as we can't make that at the moment.

but for planetary defence it should be ok.

one battlecruiser will not help you
try thousands of space antigrav interceptors first
they are more usefull,more mobile ,have 2 laser cannons and one plasma projector on boad,are able to change direction with no loss in speed,may jump(ours),have cloaking..

The Space Battleship Yamato must be the
dumbest (fictional) spaceship design ever.
It even has an anchor.

Actually, it's a non-design.
Just the old Yamato with fins attached.
