USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-Refit)

 

USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-Refit)

A Federation-Starfleet, Constitution–class, Starship

 

“Admiral, this is an almost totally new Enterprise.”

(Captain Decker, Star Trek: The Motion Picture)

 

 

About the Refit 

Both versions are unequivocally called “Constitution class” – with the same name and registry.  Kirk even implies that this is still “his” Enterprise    Therefore it seems necessary to accept that Starfleet built something very close to a new ship, but retained several parts of the old ship. 

 

It is generally accepted that the date of this refit was around 2273.  This is total conjecture.  The only on screen evidence we have is the line that states that Kirk had not a logged a single star-hour in two and a half years (Star Trek: The Motion Picture).   Given the age of crew, it may make more sense to place it after a second five-year mission, around 2278 instead of 2273.   This of course, is also total conjecture.

 

 

 

The Enterprise is Destroyed

In 2285, at about 40 years of service, the Enterprise was destroyed by Captain Kirk over the Genesis Planet to prevent it from falling into the hands of the Klingons.
