Re: was NX01 ever referred to as 'The' Enterprise?

In casual conversation, both modes were used when I served (US Navy). Any differentiation was whether you were speaking of the command (peeps serving aboard) or speaking of the object (the vessel itself.)

Of the command:
"Enterprise has been ordered to the Neutral Zone."

Of the object:
"The Enterprise has sustained heavy damage."

Never a hard rule though.
