Re: Scrapping Old Starships

Given that the volume of explored space increases exponentially with every lightyear traveled outwards, the need for more and more ships to service that space is inevitable.

Whilst a ship may be too outdated for frontline service, unless severely damaged it would be unlikely to be scrapped but given run of the mill assignments - patrol, supply, passenger service or simply given over to civilian use.

I wouldn't be surprised to see ships well over 100 years old in regular use.
