Enjoyable read so far. I'm curious, though: is this a slightly-alternate universe where the Enterprise-C was the last in the line? Capt. Keel's comment would seem to indicate this.
Good question, but no. Keel's comment was made when Sran was only a teenager, several years before Enterprise-D
would be completed. From Keel's point of view, the ship was the last of the line only because the newer ship was still on the drawing board.
