NASA officials were stumped by all the fan mail pouring through their gates in 1977 but the message was clear. The needs of the many outweighs the needs of NASA. Officials cleverly employed vulcan logic to counteract the trekkie storm which flooded in and engulfing its people. NASA updates about a space shuttle soon to be named after a world war II carrier called ENTERPRISE in honor of the original USS Enterprise NCC 1701 from Star Trek TOS succeeded in calling a ceasefire. It actually WORKED! Star Trek fans reached for the stars and their dream became a reality! The write in TREK CAMPAIGN WON igniting the human adventure with the Space Shuttle "Enterprise."
I'm going to miss the Enterprise but then who said 'all good things must come to an end!'
