Re: Did Kirk captain any ship before Enterprise?
Or maybe it "really" said "Constitution Class" all along and the set decorators got that detail wrong. Sometimes it's best to treat what we see onscreen as an approximation of the conjectural reality rather than an exactly literal depiction of it.
I suppose I could ignore that the Enterprise's plaque said "Starship Class"...but...why? There's no reason why Starfleet couldn't have just made a change to the information a plaque lists.
