The Enterprise NX-01 took a far worse pounding during season 3 of Star Trek: Enterprise - yet was still spaceworthy 100 yeats later in "E2". Then the "real" one was inexplicably decommisioned after only ten years in "These Are the Voyages"
Trek writers don't always think things through.
I don't know what E2 is -- is it canon?
It would make sense that the NX-01 was decommissioned so quickly, since it probably wore out much quicker than 23rd century starships.
