bmfderek: I'd go so far as to speculate that because Truman made the choice he made, the destructive power of nuclear weapons was seen, and no one's used them since.
The5thElement: George Washington was a southern plantation owner and owned slaves and Harry Truman authorized the use of a nuclear weapon. Twice. Both have Nimitz class ships named after them. What's your point?
Kit Fister: Rose McGowan Loveslave: Years ago I started a fan fiction where the new Enterprise E was a gigantic Carrier vessel with a bridge in the center of the ship instead of sitting on top of the ship like a big bullseye. I love the idea of a holodeck bridge with redundant power supplies, because those power supply units fall faster than red-shirts.On a side note:God Bless you Enterprise CVN-65My Flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.I think they already did this in Star Trek: Online. Several of the ships do not have visible bridge structures, leading one to presume that they have been internalized. Given that the bridge has absolutely no reason to be an obtrusive structure anyway, the damn thing could be on the bottom deck facing aft at the rear end of the ship just below the garbage hatch and still perform the same function (once the pilot got over the psychological weirdness).
Silverstaff: Apparently at the Enterprises decommissioning ceremony the Secretary of the Navy announced that the new Ford-class carrier, CVN-80 will be the new U.S.S. Enterprise, the seventh US Navy ship to bear the name.Link
tgambitg: It was lazy writing.
Keizer_Ghidorah: cptjeff: Keizer_Ghidorah: jayphat: I realize this is a gigantic nerd battle, the exact phrase "Deanna, take the helm. Get us out of orbit." And that is why I blame her. That battle should have been taken out into space. Alas, it wasn't.She is the counselor, not the driver, and they were in a life-or-death fight, so that can be excused. Would you be mad at your friend who had never driven a vehicle yet you told him to drive the car after the driver has a heart attack on an ice-slick road and your friend ends up crashing?Which goes to my point of, in a ship with a crew of 1,000 or so, them somehow not being able to get somebody qualified to fly a farking shuttle to the bridge.Everyone on the bridge who could fly it was taken out during the fight.
The5thElement: Misconduc: Since we lost some of the most famous carrier names (Yorktown, Hornet, Essex, Lexington) prepare for the U.S.S. Barack Obama .../always had a soft spot for the Yorktown, not sure if the guided missile cruiser yorktown is still active, probably decomissioned by now.Oh that will definitely happen, and most likely before he is dead, thanks to Arleigh Burke by setting the precedent.
Brick-House: Sad thing is, they're going to scrap her just like they did to the WWII Enterprise

Mugato: Fark Rye For Many Whores: [www.slightlywarped.com image 384x256]That's what you get. Never let a woman drive."You're the ship's completely ineffectual therapist. Take the wheel of the flagship of the Federation.""I sense that you're pissed that I crashed the ship."
The Stealth Hippopotamus: Second star to the left right. Straight on till morning.
RexTalionis: 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.

Silverstaff: Let us make sure history never forgets the name, Enterprise.
ZAZ: "Most of the people that I've spoken with who served in early nuclear ships thought it was just fantastic to be assigned to them."Nuclear power means all the fresh water you want.
