Re: Was the Enterprise A actually the Yorktown?

I have to wonder about the renaming, thing. Naval tradition has it to be EXTREMELY bad luck to rename a ship once she's in commission, though they've done it more than a few times (especially when they'd convert a wooden warship to something like a hospital ship, or receiving ship, or whatever). I suppose that might explain the whole "Gremlins" thing in TFF, but you'd think someone like Scotty might be superstitious enough to object.
