I was taking a test in my Constitutional Law class and one of the questions began like this “When the Founding Fathers wrote the second amendment they intended it to mean militias and not individuals…”
Cutaways of the bridge of the original and refitted Constitution Class USS Enterprise ….
1. USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) c.2254 - TOS pilot “The Cage”
2. USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) c.2265 - TOS era
3. USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) c.2271 - Star Trek: TMP
4. USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) c.2285 - Star Trek II, Star Trek III
5. USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-A) c.2286 - Star Trek IV - I would assume still the colour scheme of the USS Yorktown ….
6. USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-A) c.2287 - Star Trek V
7. USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-A) c. 2293 - Star Trek VI
A couple of shots of the shattered Constitution Class USS Constellation (NCC-1017), from the remastered version of the TOS episode ‘The Doomsday Machine’.
I realise the real reason they gave the Constellation the registry number of 1017 … a simple re-working of 1701. But this is an example of why I find the registry system so frustrating. Surely, with a low number as 1017, the Constellation is named after another ship. So, why isn’t it the 1017-A, or 1017-B?
