Building the starship USS Enterprise
http://www.buildtheenterprise.org/

I admit it's intriguing. Spend a trillion dollars to build the USS Enterprise over a period of 20 years. No, it can't yet do all the things the fictional star ship could; sadly warp drives are still a few decades to a few centuries off on the horizon of science. But I agree we should aggressively pursue manned spaceflight to the planets within our own solar system and begin the colonization of space (See my thread Where's My Apartment on a Space Colony? ).

The technology spoken of on the site is all real but this guy is pretty optimistic about how smoothy all this can be designed and integrated into a vehicle no one's ever tried before. Kinda resembles what would happen if Jacques Fresco was a Trekkie.
