"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?
