Fleet Captain
Re: The operational status of NCC 1701-A...?

A very short service life is not without precedent.
In WWII, the Alaska class battlecruisers were in service barely three years between commissioning and decommissioning.

The Washington Treaty of 1922 had many major powers scrapping their capital ships because of arms limitation terms.

Perhaps because of Khitomer terms or fleet necessity, the Enterprise-A could have been taken out of service after only a few years--regardless of whether she was a new build or older vessel.
