Ok for people that have seen the teaser for the new movie that is coming out fans have been getting pretty angry over the "New" Enterprise. Well I came up with an idea! You know the first Enterprise in the very first episode? The one with Captain Christopher Pike in command? The bridge was bigger but when Kirk was in command it became smaller. I came up with the idea that Every time a new Captain was in command of a starship (like the Enterprise) Starfleet changed the vessel. So even though you see the TOS Enterprise being built on Earth just think that it actually came to life in orbit. Because when I saw the new ship I thought "NX-01 upgrade" so after wear and tear for 15 years (give or take) it had to improve every time she went out. So the old "white shceme" must have come out after her first five year mission possibly to make her "stand out" from the NX Class'. If this is to much then you understand why I make these things... hope this calms people down on the new/ old girl! Rift Fleet 16:48, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Talk of Star Trek XI occuring in an alternate universe/timeline is now the accepted explanation for some of the style changes in the constitution class' design as well as minor and major changes in character history and federation history. For example, the Vulcan homeworld still exists in the Star Trek universe, but has been destroyed in the new movie. --KKCrouch 22:22, September 24, 2009 (UTC)

2271 or 2273? Edit

I know that the 2273 date is based on Kirk's first five-year mission ending in 2270, then adding 2 1/2 years of the refit (during which, Kirk says, he has not logged a single star-hour), which brings us to late 2272 if the mission ended before June of 2270, 2273 if after June. If Enterprise is launched prematurely to deal with the V'Ger crisis, then it leave the dock in late '72 or sometime early in '73? Where does the 2271 date come from? - - RTS2011RN (talk) 00:17, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

Looking at MA, until 2001 Okuda had Kirk's mission ending in 2369. So that is where 2371 comes from. VOY has since stated Kirk's mission ending in 2370. The Ships of the Star Fleet might be the source in this case as it pre-dates VOY. --JayLR 02:44, August 18, 2012 (UTC)
