Who would have thought that scientists would be such nerds!

Of all the ships they could've printed, they chose Voyager.

I mean, 30 micrometers could easily be seen on a light microscope, you don't need an electron microscope to see something that small. Human cells, like some white blood cells, in your body are down to 10 micrometers in size, and you can see those with pretty cheap, basic light microscopes. Decent light microscopes can go down to about 300 nanometers.  To see something like this as nicely as shown in the article probably takes a nice SEM, but I bet you could find it with a light microscope.

How long before someone crosses the Atlantic in it?

.0012 inches, or thereabouts. A thin piece of computer paper is about .0020.

The Lexx would have been confused with a dragon fly and few would have recognized the Enterprise E's captain's yacht.  Still, I'd have done SpaceBall 1.
