Infographic: What Would the Starship Enterprise Cost?September 14th, 2015
If you’re like me, you have probably wondered how much Star Trek’s Starship Enterprise would cost to build if it were real. Billions? Trillions? Is it like $500,000 in Galactic Credits? I know that I have always wondered.
The folks at GoSupplyChain decided to find out. This fun infographic (click to zoom) provides details about the various components that would be required and how much they would cost in US dollars. The final figure to get to the Final Frontier? $983 Billion dollars, with $227 Billion going towards the launch itself.
Yeah, but is that with or without a self-destruct sequence? Because if you have any Captain Kirk types at the helm, this is going bankrupt us all real quick.
