Oh? I always thought it was CVN-65, which was just a couple years old when "The Cage" was made and represented the latest and greatest of USN technology. Wherewas it said that it was named for CV-6?

The Making of Star Trek, and several other sources. (The other sources may have been referencing TMoST, though.) If I remember right, CVN-65 may have been the latest and greatest at the time, but CV-6 had quite the illustrious history behind it.
