All this Star Trek bullshit is about a _spinning_ pressurized disco,
not a stationary one. People inserted the "spinning" crap to transform
a sensible idea (legal buzz, loud inside/quiet outside) into a silly
one. Keep the club stationary and it would be a fucking gold mine, I
tell you. The one problem I can see is that speakers will perform
dramatically differently under high pressure, and we might have to have
custom ones made. Oh, and there would have to be some way to keep all
the air from blowing out through the toilets. But both problems are
small matters of (21st century Earth) engineering.
