Re: Aventine the new flagship?
I hope they stop saying that. The term 'flagship of the Federation' makes no sense, anyway, since governments don't have flagships - *admirals* do. An admiral plants his or her personal flag aboard a ship and uses it as their own, hence the term FLAGship.
For instance, the NCC-1701 could be considered a flagship for most of ST II and III, since Admiral Kirk was in command.
