Re: WTH is the NCC1701-D "the Flagship"?

I simply think the -A thing was created because the Council wanted Starfleet to give Kirk a second NCC-1701 as a symbolic gesture, but the bureaucrats could not tolerate the idea of two different ships having the exact same registry. The -B then followed because it's tradition, and you don't challenge tradition...

It's not the ship that's being honored, it's Kirk, the first time around.

(Wouldn't explain NCC-1305-E, though, unless Captain Okita got given a replica of his old starship, too.)
