Let's hope the petition to make the unnamed CVN-80 (Gerald Ford class) the new Enterprise is successful. I'm optimistic because I heard that the guy at the White House is a Trekkie.

We've almost always had an ENTERPRISE. The Navy just isn't complete without one.

I'd rather have served on a cool sounding named carrier like an Enterprise than the John C. Stennis. Seriously, does anybody even know who that guy is who wasn't on that ship?

I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world because they'd never expect it.

While this ship comes to its end the storied history of the Enterprise shall continued, a legacy stretching from the Battles of the Coral sea and Midway to Korea, Vietnam to the wars in the gulf. The ships may have have changed but the name USS Enterprise has long stood for greatness.

God speed CVN-65 your contributions to the legacy of the proud name you proud bore shall not be forgotten.

Nimitz. One of the people from the 40s they rescued made a comment about Nimitz having such a huge ego that he'd name a boat after himself before they were convinced the carrier was from the future.

Even more impressively (to me, anyway), is that the B52 fleet is expected to serve into the 2040s. Ships are big, and you don't have the weight restrictions and delicate parts that are so key to aircraft. Pretty easy to build a big ship to last, the question is how useful it'll be as technology advances around it.
