The USS Enterprise (CVN-65) was Earth's first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, laid down in 1958, launched and christened in 1960, and commissioned in 1961, by the US Navy.

History and dispositionEdit

The Enterprise was docked at US Alameda Naval Base in 1986, when it was boarded by a man suspected of being a Soviet agent. In fact, this man was Starfleet Commander Pavel Chekov, who had traveled into the past aboard a captured Klingon starship, and was attempting to collect high-energy photons from the carrier's nuclear reactor to recrystalize his ship's dilithium. (ST movie, novelization & comic adaptation: The Voyage Home)

In The Voyage Home, the USS Ranger stood in for the Enterprise, which was at sea during filming.

History recorded the ship was lost during the Eugenics Wars during the 1996 Battle of the Sea of Japan. (TNG novel: Debtors' Planet)

In reality, the ship survived to be inactivated on December 1, 2012 and decommissioned and removed from Naval registry on February 3, 2017. She is to be replaced by a new aircraft carrier (CVN-80) in the mid 2020s.

An image of this Enterprise was displayed in Captain Jonathan Archer's quarters aboard the United Earth starship Enterprise (NX-01) in the 2150s. (ENT episode: "Broken Bow")

A sculpted image was featured two centuries later upon the walls of the conference lounges of both the USS Enterprise-D and the USS Enterprise-E. (TNG episode: "Encounter at Farpoint"; TNG movie: First Contact)

The Enterprise was based in Norfolk, Virginia as of 2012 and remains there.
