KarmicDisaster: Coelacanth: Fark sending a probe. Send people. We're a race of seafarers. At least put a manned ship in orbit so we can teleoperate the thing.

Great idea, but it is not technically possible to send people to Saturn at the moment. Mars is only 0.5 AU from the Earth at closest approach and we can't even send people there. Saturn is 9 AU away at closest approach. If you want results in the next, say decade, you are going to have to send a probe.

I know. I just wish we'd stop buying military crap we don't need or want, and give NASA a real budget again.

The Captains yacht is something I'm sad we never got to see in TNG.

Its the Oval thingy on the bottom of the Enterprise Saucer section.
