There’s a site with the purported goal of building the U.S.S. Enterprise in the next 20 years. The site’s a bit on the slow side at the moment, so if it doesn’t load, you could try the Google cache of the site (and I’m assuming I’ve pasted that link correctly; I dunno if it’s supposed to be personalized to me or not). Granted, there are some design changes (like the “gravity wheel”), and apparently NASA wasn’t thrilled with the concept. Still, I’d ask them what the name of their first space shuttle was, again?
Anyway, it might not be such a great idea to leap into a Trek-based future. As discussed in this video, the universe of Star Trek may not be as great as we thought. 🙂
