Re: Intrepid Museum Gets Shuttle Enterprise, Houston Has a Problem

The significance of the shuttle unit doesn't depend on the name. I am not a big Star Trek fan, but can see the significance of the unit because it's the first one.

That's why I have to laugh at the posts that are "pissed off" that they switched the Discovery for the Enterprise, freeing it up to go somewhere else. NYC is EXTREMELY lucky to get the Enterprise. Again, while it wasn't one of the flying fleet, it's the prototype, and the one that all the others were based on. If not for the Enterprise there would be no others.
NYC should be honored to have that unit right here.

That was a neat 'experience'. I liked how they also had the Voyager and Enterprise D ships. I went to both the Klingon encounter and Borg 4d attractions. Shame the star trek stuff is no longer there.

The only monorail station other than the Sahara that doesn't require you to navigate thru the endless mazes of the casinos. $5 one way and that hassle? I'll stick with the bus where I paid $5 (2006-7) for a full 1 day pass.

Yeah true. If I'm going from the MGM Grand to Sahara (well when it was still open) that's where the monorail is better. But if you are making multiple stops and you don't want to search for the entrance, the bus imo, is better. On vacation, I don't want to be hassled trying to find the station while the bus stop is right there on the strip and at the front of the casinos.

Hop on, hop off, beats walking in the heat. The usual destination would be the Belagio for the water shows and basically if I feel like visiting certain casinos instead of just the closest 4-5. And then there's the ride to the Downtown area. I generally don't have a set schedule and just went to whatever place I wanted.

Traffic as bad as it was on the strip, the taxi will just increase on the fare.

Of course. But to me the monorail was more of a tourist trap and not ideal for general transportation. I rode it once for the sake of riding it and just hated the 'maze'. After that, it's fuck that, not riding it again.
