Re: Should "Star Trek IV" have introduced a different NCC-1701-A?

^ The problem isn't the age of the class; it's the age of the specific ship in that class.

The problem with the original Enterprise is just that the ship was old. A new Constitution-class ship, such as the Enterprise-A, would be just that - brand new.

The Constitution class was still viable. Brand new ships of that class would be useable for decades. But the original ship already had been in service for that long.
