So I don’t know if you know this or not, but I am kind of an uber trek nerd… And if you are like me and truly love all things Trek, then I thought that you guys might enjoy this visual history of all of the ships named, ‘Enterprise’ from the American Navy to Starfleet!
CONTINENTAL NAVY/UNITED STATES NAVY:
The USS Enterprise was a 70 ton sloop-of-war during the revolutionary war.
The, ‘Enterprise’. A 25 ton schooner that fought in the revolutionary war as the second, ‘Enterprise’ ship to service the ‘Continental Navy’!
Thius the 3rd, ‘Enterprise’ to serve U.S. naval interests… This USS Enterprise saw active duty in 1799.
This version of the USS Enterprise was a 197 ton schooner that proudly served the United States Navy in 1831.
This USS Enterprise was the next ship to proudly serve with this name. She saw service in 1874.
This version of the ship, this, ‘USS Enterprise’ served the US Navy during world war 1.
Maybe one of the most prestigious ships in United States naval history… This USS Enterprise was an aircraft carrier that served proudly during world war 2!
The USS Enterprise CVN 65 is one of the longest running combat vessels in naval history and one of the first aircraft carriers to be nuclear powered!
The USS Enterprise CVN 80. This ship has not finished being built yet… But will be one of a series of new aircraft carriers to serve in the next generation United States Navy!
NASA & PRIVATE SPACE COMPANIES:
The Space Shuttle Enterprise OV-101 is one of the most famous space shuttles of the old Space Shuttle fleet that served NASA proudly for decades!
The VSS Enterprise was a space plane that had been designed as an early member of the, ‘Virgin Galactic’ fleet!
This USS Enterprise XCV 330 was a, ‘Declaration’ class Space Liner that entered service during the United Earth era… roughly aroun 2123.
The Enterprise NX-01 is the first warp 5 ship, it flew under the, ‘United Earth’ banner… And it’s adventures helped usher in the Federation.
The USS Enterprise NCC 1701 (The first Enterprise commanded by Captain James T. Kirk.)
The USS Enterprise NCC 1701-A (The second and final ship commanded by Captain James T. Kirk.)
The USS Enterprise NCC 1701-B… Not a ton is known about it… Except during it’s shakedown cruise, the Enterprise came us again the, ‘NEXUS’… And in the melee lost Captain James T. Kirk.
The USS Enterprise NCC 1701-C… Not much is known about her… Except that she accidentally disappeared and traveled decades in to the future where due to her disappearance from history… The Federation and Klingon Empire were at war… And when she went back to her timeline, it put everything right!
The USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D is the first Enterprise ship commanded by Captain Jean Luc Picard.
The USS Enterprise NCC 1701-E is the ship commanded by Captain Picard that stopped the Borg from destroying human history!
Now there other ships with the name that served in the Star Trek era… but I am only counting the strictly cannon… Not alternate timelines or alternate dimensions.
