(Stars and Stripes)   Enterprise vs Enterprise hard core Stars and Stripes journalist asks: "A 23rd-century starship obviously has far more advanced technology than a 21st-century aircraft carrier. But in what other ways are the vessels dissimilar?"   ( stripes.com) divider line

studebaker hoch: Star Trek wins because they have time travel.

If they lose a fight, any ship in the federation can just go back in time and change history so they win.

Nimitz can do that. Should have retrofitted CVN65 to do it too.

factoryconnection: It would have been nice if the new class of CVNs could have been ENTERPRISE instead of Gerald Ford. A president that was never elected by anyone outside of a single congressional district? Seriously? And people sh*t their pants over an LCS being named for Gabrielle Giffords.

Can't wait for the William J. Clinton. Slogan - "Loaded with seamen and ready for action!"

Great Janitor: mrlewish: One thing superior about the USS Enterprise carrier. It has bathrooms. Never seen one on the starship Enterprise.

It's clear that there were restrooms in the individual quarters. I mean there is a small alcove on one side of the room behind an open door with a sink and running water. Clearly there's a shower and toilet back there as well (TNG crew quarters)

There is even one on the Bridge. One TNG, look in the rear section of the Bridge. You'll see a small alcove. In that alcove are two doors. One door leads to the Observation Deck, the other door faces that door (okay, it's not easily seen, but from some angles you can see it, sometimes crew members walk out of it), that door leads to the Bridge restroom. There is even another one in the Captain's Ready Room. In the Ready Room there is the replicator and what looks like a small hallway. That leads to the Captain's private restroom.

Do they have to evacuate the bridge after Worf goes on a prune juice bender and blows up the bathroom?

"Captain! Come quick! You've got to see this! It looks like live gagh!"

But they talked about the "Captain's log" in just about every episode

Ladies and Gentlemen- we have found the biggest Nerd on Fark. : )

Honestly, if you didn't know that then you probably should be permanently banned from the Geek tab.

Does the new CVN have a bowling alley? 'Cause the starship did.

FTFAthe U.S. Navy retired the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN-65)...[and]...the third Ford-class supercarrier (CVN-80), due to be completed around 2025, will be named Enterprise.

Am I the only one who thinks they should have designated the new Enterprise as CVN-65-B?
