SciFi Q of the Day: Ships Named Enterprise

USS Enterprise (CV-6) en route to New York to take part in the Navy Day Fleet review, October 1945. She is steaming in company with an Independence-class light carrier (CVL) — in the right distance– and another warship.

SciFi Question Of the Day: If you could spend a day on any vessel named Enterprise, interacting with the crew but not affecting their timeline, which Enterprise would you choose, and what day?

Facebook Answers:

  Charles Root Jr USS Enterprise CV-6 June 5th 1942

  Robert B. Fredricksen Beam me up Scotty!

  Robert B. Fredricksen To be more specific NCC-1701

  AmyBeth Fredricksen No bloody A, B, C, or D…

  Tyler Gurdak Which NCC-1701? The original, refit or the new movie one?

  AmyBeth Fredricksen Actually, I think he wanted to see Pike’s Enterprise…

  Mark Cash The USS Enterprise that captured Tripoli 1 August 1801.

  Daniel Beard USS Enterprise, 11 October 1776, Battle of Valcour Island. Lake Champlain

  Mark Cash ah yes, but that one is tainted by association to Benedict Arnold.

  Daniel Beard as is Fort Ticonderoga

  Mark Cash ah heck…lets just try sailing all of them then decide which one we liked best!

  Mark Cash as a pilot and a sailor I think CV-6 would be cool but I admit I prefer a tall ship with only the wind for propulsion.

  Juno Suk On the Enterprise shuttle bus from Lihue airport in Kaua’i to their rental lot to get a car for a long vacation. Space is great and all, but all I needed was some R&R in Hawai’i. So, I left the USS Enterprise when we traveled to this pre-warp civilization during our save the whales mission. Took a short hop from Monterey to Hawai’i in the 1980’s and haven’t looked back since. Ahhhh, despite you luddites not having figured out transparent aluminum yet, I still get by happily on dolphins, rainbows, and loco mocos.

David Grigg Cheated by looking on Wikipedia, but:

HMS Enterprise was a 48-gun fifth rate Royal Navy ship launched in 1693, renamed as such in 1744. And on almost any day, would love to hang around one of those sailing ships.

  AmyBeth Inverness  That’s not cheating at all! I purposely said “vessel” instead of “spaceship.”

  JD Savage  Hmmm, 17th century tech, no women, scurvy… or… replicators, skin-tight uniforms and holodecks…hmmm

  michael interbartolo  Shuttle enterprise during the Approach and landing test, first time they released from the 747 to see if that flying brick would fly.

 EB Taylor  USS Enterprise (CV-6) during the battle of midway.

  Tiffany Marshall  USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D), any day but the saucer section’s crash-landing day. Maybe on a day during “Unification”?

  AmyBeth Inverness  I have to agree with +Tiffany Marshall … I’d choose NCC 1701-D as well (Not crash day) preferably a calm, normal day where I could explore the ship and see how the families live day-to-day.

I would love to hear what you think! Even if you are reading this post a year or more after publishing, I hope you will leave a comment with your own ideas on this topic.
