Re: Was the reveal of the Enterprise-A a big surprise?

I remember several gasps in the audience at that moment and a few cheers that it wasn't 'that other ship' as a friend put it.

My pet theory was always that the Enterprise-A was built from 'spare parts' left over from the Constituion refit cycle, similar to the space shuttle Endeavour. It's based on nothing but supposition, of course. A pulled-from-mothballs Constitution about to be retired works too. I think we all know the Yorktown tale from Gene comes from the Enterprise originally being called Yorktown in his initial treatments.
I like this theory. Works well with the Enterprise-A being a glitchy mess in STV.
Thank you. I thought it was a happy compromise. I would assume they built it, did whatever tests they meant (having never intended it for full service) and then it sat quietly in some drydock for a while collecting dust.
