Re: The operational status of NCC 1701-A...?
I've always assumed that by the time od ST:VI, the Constitution Class was was in the process of being removed rom service and replaced by the modified Excelsior Class. Given all of the problems that Scotty encountered in ST:V we could also assume that the Constitution Class was so old that starfleet was having problems upgrading its systems to the current generation. Thus the Enterprise A was plagued with technical problems right out of the gate. We could also assume that Starfleet never built any new Constitution class refits. All of them in service were just refits of older ships. Its a good bet that all of the test information earned from the refit were formally incorporated into the NX-2000.
Well maybe I'm the faggot America.
I'm not a part of a redneck agenda.
Now everybody do the propaganda.
And sing along in the age of paranoia
