@ Albertese & Avro Arrow
Is there any good reason to assume that the starship status chart from "Court Martial" only shows starships being repaired in orbit of the starbase?
NCC-1831 (formerly assumed to be Intrepid
) is almost done, so why pull the repair crew off to start work on the Enterprise
For all we know this is just the general Starfleet chart to indicate all starships that are still in need to receive essential upgrades.
Commodore Stone may be well aware of Intrepid
's condition but a look at the "upgrade" chart tells him Enterprise
badly needs these in addition to the repair work following the severe "ion storm".
I don't believe Mike Okuda was making a conscious decision showing Intrepid
as NCC-1631 in TOS-R, but the moment he did he accidentally gave this starship status chart a different and, IMHO, better meaning.
