Yeah, it's like that dumbass habit of Starfleet naming expensive starships Enterprise

Only one: the 1701-D. That is the only Enterprise
to end unfortunately - rather lame act of sabotage by Lursa and B'Etor.
The only other Enterprise
s where we even KNOW how they were destroyed is the 1701 (clearly honorable act by Kirk to prevent the ship's capture by Klingons) and the 1701-C (destroyed in open combat with Romulans).
Those latter two were clearly not the unfortunate, clusterfuck endings that the various Valiant
s have been subjected to.
