Re: How long is a ship used?

I think Morrow's 20-year line is a case of "real-world time" trumping "in-universe time." One can either substitute 40 for 20, or just chalk it up to Morrow not really knowing how old the Enterprise actually was, but knew she was at least 20 and Starfleet wasn't going to devote any more of its resources keeping an aging cadet vessel operational.
