They know they would never get away with it (would be debunked by credible former trekkies who now have multiple PhDs) so the USS Enterprise is safe
from a false flag
I suppose it's beside the point, but I don't find this logical. The USS Enterprise, CVN-65, is the 8th US Navy ship to bear that name, and was
launched in 1960, the only one of its class. The first Starship USS Enterprise, NC-1701, was a Constitution Class Starship launched in 2245. The Space
Shuttle Enterprise, OV-101, was launched in 1976. It's original name, oddly enough, was to have been the "Constitution," but a letter writing
campaign by Trekkies managed to have the name changed to Enterprise.
Given this history it seems to me that Trekkies, i.e.: Trekkers, would be more aligned with the Space Shuttle than the latest aircraft carrier.
Indeed, Mr. Spock was at the ceremonies in New York when the Enterprise, OV-101, recently landed there for the last time. Indeed, there is yet another
letter writing campaign proposing to name the CVN-80, which is slated to replace the Eisenhower, as the 9th Enterprise in US Naval history, in the
Now, about this so-called "false flag" event, they better hurry up. In no more than three months, the Enterprise will be headed home for the last
time. Then the half dozen threads on this event will have to eat crow.
