Real world comparison Edit

This is my thought, the last time I checked, a nebula was several thousand degrees kelvin. Depending on the nebula, they could be near absolute zero like the Boomerang Nebula, or several thousand degrees, like ones post supernova. In the extremely hot ones, why would a ship want to in one and even worse, they travel deeper inside the nebula where it is a known fact that the temperature is going to get hotter. I've yet to see a metal in any of the series with the exception of neutronium that would withstand 2000+ degrees kelvin temperatures for any length of time. That is just my thought Varpilah 05:50, September 10, 2010 (UTC)Varpilah

Many articles on Star Trek phenomena that exist in the real world explain the differences between these real world phenomena and their fictional counterparts.
Nebulae for examples are not the thick fog Star Trek makes them out to be. They're regions of space, in which the gas and dust particle density is only over a million per cm³. 1 cm³ of air at sea level contains 2.7*10^16 air molecules. Therefore you could hardly hide a spacecraft in a nebula. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Δημόκριτος (talk • contribs).
