It is my understanding that Teradata considers Star Schemas appropriate (a necessary evil) if a 3rd normal form database design cannot meet the response time requirements of the user.
In our case, we build Teradata Star Schema Datamarts (as part of a ROLAP application solution) weekly from a 3rd normal form Teradata warehouse. I recommend this approach only if you are certain that a 3rd normal form solution isn't fast enough for the user, and you have plently of disk space. Also, if you decide you do need to build a Star Schema, consider building a Multi-table Join Index to pre-resolve your fact and dimension table joins. Our protoype of this design is running very smoothly.
Hope this helps,
