They'd just need to power up and use the main weapon once....and the sheer stress not properly accounted for, combined with shoddy equipment and
material people figured would be good enough for Government work would leave the poor thing coming apart in mid-space right in the middle of the shot.
They'd spend years trying to figure out if the test caused the breakup or the break up was just kinda happening anyway and the light from the shot was
Oh...and I forgot.. We'd naturally need to pretty much mortgage the whole planet to build the little one here by the time cost over-runs and 'We've
come this far...might as well....." costs got figured in.

*Hey, look what I found on the net! Someone has a special view to the future and caught a glimpse of Obama-1!
(Sorry.. couldn't resist. )
