Captain's log, U.S.S. Enterprise, stardate 9529.1.

This is the final cruise of the Starship Enterprise under my command.

This ship and her history will shortly become the care of another crew.
It doesn't sound like the Enterprise is going to be retired at the end of TUC, rather Kirk is going to transfer command to another Captain, and then Kirk (and not the Enterprise) is going to retire.

That was always how I took those lines at the end of TUC until Generations came along with 1701-B being launched maybe a year later...
