    From the image, I wouldn't be able to surmise that the Odyssey would actually have ground landing capabilities. The stress and weight placed on landing struts may be too much for even engineering of the time to handle. Well, they may be able to engineer it but it may not be feasible if it required compromises to other ship systems. Always trade-offs to consider and if it is really needed.

    Now, water landing capabilities is something entirely different, which it may have. Water wouldn't require land gear as much as it would need some kind of buoyancy. We saw it, ok you can groan, in JJ Trek's 2nd movie. Well, sort of with the Enterprise able to operate/launch from water.

    We also see this in other sci-fi or anime series. Battleship Yamato, Voltron (the vehicle one), Macross (SDF-1), etc. I wouldn't say it would be a far stretch to say that Starfleet ships with atmospheric capability would be able to exert some buoyancy field to remain afloat if needed, as an emergency or by design.

    Those are some really good points, and looking at the Odyssey’s design, particularly the split neck and the way the saucer and nacelles are shaped, I wouldn’t be surprised if it could float, or operate underwater (even though it is more than a kilometer long).

    Voyager landing struts are also tiny compared to the ship.

    But these ships are not just made of steel beams are they? Probably a variety of super-strong alloys and other materials like ceramics that are vastly stronger that what we think of today as being good for building.

    So i imagine that those landing legs are probably way tougher than they look and probably tied in to the structure of the whole hull to better spread the weight. Plus Voyager being designed to land probably has everything helped by the integrity field, anti-grav emitters etc.

    The Intrepid class had landing capabilities, although I’m not sure if the Odyssey can land or not...
    Check if they have blue lights installed, if they do, it means they can go to Blue Alert, so therefore can land.

    That's how it works right?
