New Enterprise dedication plaque

I don't think we have seen it before, have we ?
It appears briefly in the Starships documentary, but we don't get a clue exactly where on the bridge it is.

Checked the bridge panorama at the official site, and...

How about right there?

Very likely that construction and final testing were completed in orbit.

Which is why we saw the construction on the ground?

Construction on the ground makes finalization in orbit impossible....how?

Look at it this way - modern warship construction starts on dry land, then is completed in the water.

And that changes the name of the ship yard?

No, it just means the plaque lists the shipyard the ship was completed, commissioned, and launched from.

Usually I'd think that if it construction began in the Riverside ship yards, there would be a corresponding drydock in orbit named "Riverside". No reason to change the name, especially when - as the authors suggested - the Enterprise was built in Riverside because of George Kirk's heroic act.
