Yeah, it's like that dumbass habit of Starfleet naming expensive starships Enterprise. How many o' them suckers has met with a tragic demise?!
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 Enterprises 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 Valiants have been subjected to.
