I see many advantages, friend; I also believe that NASA, as I have stated before, is more or less a dog and pony show; think of how the stage magician draws your attention to one action whilst performing another that few ever notice or even consider happening...

If so, then in my opinion, you must agree that the best space going technology is not public knowledge. I would bet that before anything nasa produces is released, it is heavily analyzed for it's potential military ramifications.
mac, I think you need to go back in time and look at the Apollo program and at what actually went to the moon; Orion is just basically an Apollo capsule on steriods, a crew compartment; along with the Apollo capsule you had the command module itself, plus the lunar lander; the capsule itself doesn't have any propulsion system...

I don't know, it could be the masses just arent worried about space travel. The moon was their everest and their content with it it seems.
But it does make you wonder what The Orion will boast, being as its been said rockets arent feasibleness for space travel over distances for the lack of speed and amount of fuel you would need to carry.
...and yes I do realize it was designed like the original Moon Mission.
