EMBATTLED USS ENTERPRISE NCC 1701

E IS FOR EMBATTLED ENTERPRISE.  We've all heard the name before, The USS Enterprise NCC 1701 took incoming Klingon enemy fire and sustained heavy damage in Star Trek the Undiscovered Country. Scottys first on the scene, crying havoc about the structural integrity of the ship and his precious warp engines.


"The ship's packing quite a walloping, she can't take much more of this. She'll blow up!"

 The Enterprise goes on to achieve fame under Captain James Tiberius Kirk but for now she needs a major refit. In the eyes of Kirk's nemesis General Chang, the USS Enterprise 1701 is a formidable "battlecruiser."  However the real hero was Scotty the "Miracle Worker" who kept the ship in one piece.

I know Kirks Enterprise 1701 hardly qualifies as a lifeform but heres a quote from the Captain himself whos of a slightly different opinion.




All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by. You could feel the wind at your back and the sound of the sea beneath you. Even if you take away the wind, water, its still the same. The ship is yours, you can feel her and the stars are still there.

QUESTION: Is the USS ENTERPRISE NCC 1701 alive?


 ITS OVER TO YOU TREKKERS AND TREKKIES.

The Enterprise is definitely a character all its own.

An Excellent take on E. And yes, I think the objects we label inanimate could OFTEN surprise us. I hope so...

Enterprise certainly established a legacy.

Did not realise you were doing the A to Z this year, I left it as I felt not that many people are interested in photography, Good luck with yours

The ship may feel alive to Captain Kirk, but it's not.
Now it would be interesting to see Captain Kirk pilot a Leviathan from Farscape. That ship was truly alive and even gave birth.

How could it not be alive? If it absorbed all of Shatner's angst and emotional rants, Enterprise would be powered for many centuries.

I lost count how many times it was embattled:)
