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

Well, real world, I'm sure the producers intended it to be a new ship. But they went with the refit Constitution because (a) it would be instantly recognizable as the Enterprise to the moviegoing public and (b) they didn't have to spend a boatload of cash to build a new model for what was a two minute scene at the end of a movie. Therefore, since I assume that's what was intended real world, I prefer to think that in-universe it is a brand new ship as well.
