Klippoklondike: 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 do. Stennis once played in a high-stakes poker game against Admiral Nimitz. They went all in, and Stennis won. Nimitz had to sign over the title to his aircraft character, which was promptly renamed to reflect the new owner. Carl S. Vinson and Dwight D. Eisenhower were witnesses.

An expert marketer could not have come up with a better name for US Navy Ship than Enterprise. It's the equivalent of having HMS Stiff Upper Lip or HMCS (Her Majesty's Canadian Ship) Quielty Pragmatic.

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.

I figured because of the guy in the White House it'd be named "Mohammed".

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.

One of the crewmen still has a Klingon phaser Chekov stupidly threw to him.
