Definitely a cool looking ship; especially hearing that it could be fitted with lasers and rail type weapons.

Is this Captain Kirk actually a Trek fan?
I wouldn't blame if he wasn't. You know he's had to have gotten plenty of ribbing over the year over his name just cause he's in the navy.
In his place i would have owned this name and do everything in my power to get assigned to the USS Enterprise (but he probably isn't a fan and planned his career realistically ).

Still.. i wonder if he ever used his name in connection with Star Trek, few could resist i believe.

As to the ship.. sure it's the future and it looks very futuristic. I'm especially impressed with the automated control systems reducing crew requirements and amount of people needed to run the ship properly without sacrificing effectivity.

Yep, this ship is being commissioned in less than a year. It looks fantastic.

CAPT James A. Kirk
Canon violation!!! Everyone knows Captain Kirk's only acceptable middle initials are "T" and "R." I can't imagine how anyone could associate T&A with Captain Kirk.

Its commissioning is a bit of a ways off and a pretty different requirement from commanding destroyers, but it would be awesome if he got command of the next Enterprise. Make it happen, US Navy.
I think that CVN-65 is still commissioned even though she has been retired. we would have a lot more work to do then we did with the space shuttle to get a ship in the current pipeline renamed Enterprise. Captain Kirk missed the window of opportunity.

She will not be decommissioned until she is completely defueled. She's "deactivated" right now.

Senior Captains for a pre-commissioning gig aren't that uncommon.

That experience, especially with this "thing" is preferred. Remember, all the instruction for this class are going to start from scratch.
I was wondering if that was the case, thanks. I realize he'll be more of a project manager than a skipper.
He stays with the ship through comissioning and the intitial training phase - might even make her first deployment.
