Because I'm a Sentimental Fool

Here's the petition to name CVN-80 the USS Enterprise, so that the Navy still has a ship with that name when CVN-65 gets decommissioned next year.

Ya know, it's not like there haven't been long stretches of time in American history when the Navy had no Enterprise.

It's just that since Star Trek embedded the name so deeply into the American psyche as a shared symbol of hope for the future of mankind, it would seem almost un-American to do so now.

    1. *slap!*

      NO!

      Adding letters in order to keep the hull number the same was the stupidest thing the Star Trek franchise ever did.

  2. Any word on the fate of CVN-65? Hopefully a museum ship or some kind of reserve rather than sunk as an "artificial reef."

  3. Painfully, it will probably be named the "hussein" or the "Michelle". More so if it has a huge fantail
