Considering Gaila's reaction at her posting, I still have some hope she was assigned to Enterprise.
We saw her at Kirk's hearing, but not at his celebration. And since she is never seen or heard from again in the sequel or in any other NuTrek medium be it the comics, books, games, it's not a stretch to say that she was on a different ship and is now dead. Her excited reaction probably stems more from the fact that she's an undergraduate who's just happy to have the opportunity to serve on any starship.

Re: NuTrek's Faulty Moral Compass

That's quite possible, too. Both seem equally likely.

Re: NuTrek's Faulty Moral Compass

It's possible the reason Kirk mistook the Orion woman in the corridor as Gaila in the deleted scene (in addition to him just being an ass) is that he had found out that she was assigned to the Enterprise as well.

I would think there would be some regret expressed between Gaila and Uhura in the hangar if they were not assigned to the same ship, since they seemed fairly close as roommates.

But then, it would seem Gaila was most likely posted to the Farragut. We see her grin at Uhura just before Uhura stomps off to whip Spock into putting her on the Enterprise and then we never see her again.

Why ? They weren't named in order of assignment.

Couldn't Kirk just use the Enterprise's computers to locate her just as he did with Uhura?

Re: NuTrek's Faulty Moral Compass

In all fairness, it seemed that Kirk stumbled across her and took the opportunity to apologize. However, I read Gaila's expression with Uhura as (possibly) indicating she was thrilled to be assigned to the same ship as her friend and roomie--at that time, the Farragut.

I wonder: is the Enterprise one of a kind (or the first of a new kind) in NuTrek? Or was she merely the newest of twelve?

It's hard to say, but I got the impression she was the latest and newest thing around. Everyone seemed very impressed by it.

Re: NuTrek's Faulty Moral Compass

According to Captain Pike, she was the newest flagship of the fleet:

"The maiden voyage of our newest flagship deserves more pomp and circumstance than we can afford today,
but her christening will have to be our reward for a safe return."


I'll also add that her technology certainly looked improved upon compared to other ships.

Long before the current idea of "Class name ship comes first" and a USS Consistution NCC-1700, the Enterprise was envisioned as the first of the seventeenth hull design of Starfleet, hence the number 1701.

Re: NuTrek's Faulty Moral Compass

Is there any class ship in Trek canon besides the Excelcior which we actually, clearly see ? Because ST09 seems to indicate that Enterprise is the first Constritution class ship.

Gaila was originally assigned to the Enterprise, but when Uhura had her lover reassign her to the Enterprise this created an empty slot in the Farragut's crew roster and Gaila was reassigned to fill it.

Uhura kill Gaila.

Re: NuTrek's Faulty Moral Compass

just to put this thread into perspective, I just watched a Taste of Armageddon, and I was loving it up to the point that I discovered that Starfleet has a General Order that says it's ships have to commit war crimes! Awesome!

Well I don't think they have to commit war crimes.
And General Order 24 can also be used in peace time if necessary.

Although I can only think of one situation off hand in the entirety of Star Trek where it may have been necessary to kill off an entire civilian population. Maybe...

It wasn't in Armageddon though. Where it was essentially used as a bluff.
