USS Enterprise Evolution in Photos: The Many Faces of Star Trek’s Favorite Starship
The United Federation of Planets’ USS Enterprise, serial number NCC-1701, was the first US ship to bear the name Enterprise, a Continental Navy sloop-of-war. “Star Trek Into Darkness” opens in the United States on May 16, 2013.
USS Enterprise (CVN 65) in Real Life
In 1976, NASA’s space shuttle Enterprise was greeted by cast members from the original “Star Trek” television series. A new USS Enterprise (CVN-80) is scheduled to become operational in 2025.
Space Shuttle Enterprise
After a write-in campaign by Star Trek fans, the prototype space shuttle was given the name Enterprise (OV-101), and another real-life craft, one of Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo vehicles, was given the name VSS Enterprise and glided over California’s Mojave Air and Space Port during the first drop and glide test in 2010.
USS Enterprise (XCV 330)
The first Starship Enterprise is depicted in a painting from the Star Trek: The Motion Picture series.
The iconic model, which was used in filming the weekly hourlong “Star Trek” TV series from 1966 to 1969, is now on display at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. A mirror version of the ship, ISS Enterprise (NX-01), appeared in the episode “In a Mirror, Darkly.”
ISS Enterprise in the Mirror Universe
The Terran Empire’s mirror ship appeared in the Star Trek episode “Mirror, Mirror,” which featured a treacherous, violent mirror crew, and looks almost identical to the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) from the original Star Trek series.
USC Enterprise (NCC-1701) Animated
Star Trek: The Animated Series was CBS’s first animated series, airing from 1973 to 1974, and featured a Starship Enterprise that was based on the original TV show’s design, but with added features like a second turbolift access to the bridge.
The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-A) was a Federation Constitution-class heavy cruiser that first appeared at the end of “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home” (1986) and then in subsequent films with the original crew.
USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-B)
She was the third ship to bear the name USS Enterprise, and she first appeared in the 1994 film “Star Trek: Generations.” She was commanded by Captain Rachel Garrett, and her mission was to defend the Klingon outpost Narendra III from Romulan attack.
USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D)
The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D), commanded by Captain Jean-Luc Picard, was the Starfleet flagship that served as the main setting for the Star Trek: The Next Generation television series. It was destroyed in 2371 after a renegade Klingon attack breached her warp core.
USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-E)
“Star Trek: First Contact” (1996) and “Enterprise-E” (1998) both featured it.
USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) Rebooted
The USS Enterprise of the alternate reality “rebooted” Star Trek free-falls during a trailer for the new “Star Trek Into Darkness” film (2013), with early preview clips indicating that the ship sustains heavy damage during the events of the film.
How long was the original Enterprise mission from Star Trek?
The ship’s historic five-year mission from 2264 to 2269 earned it the title of most famous space-exploration vessel in history.
How many star ship enterprises have there been?
That isn’t to say that there have only been four Enterprises; in fact, as of the release of Star Trek Beyond, only Star Trek: Enterprise has avoided destroying its ship at some point (and in an alternate timeline, even that happened).
Why was Star Trek: Enterprise Cancelled?
When asked why Star Trek: Enterprise was canceled after four seasons, Trinneer cited scheduling conflicts with the network (UPN) as well as the show’s early loss of a major corporate backer: “The problem was that for the nights that we were on, usually your Major League Baseball team was also on UPN locally.”
Is the Enterprise the best ship in Star Trek?
In a StarTrek.com fan poll, the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-E), captained by Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Insurrection, and Star Trek: Nemesis, was voted the best-engineered Federation ship (prime timeline).
Who was captain of the Enterprise after Picard?
Worf (Michael Dorn) replaced Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) as Captain of the Enterprise, according to the new canonical Star Trek: Picard prequel novel.
What is the most advanced enterprise?
The Sovereign-class Enterprise-E succeeds the Enterprise-D as Starfleet’s most technologically advanced starship, capable of theoretically reaching a warp speed of 9.995. Any doubts about its firepower are dispelled on one of its first missions when it destroys a Borg cube.
Which enterprise is best?
In most updates, a new Enterprise is at the center, and each one continues the proud tradition of the first.

Who does t POL end up with?
Those scenarios occurred in my ending, but T’pol and Trip completed their ten-year service but remained together after Baby Elizabeth (the cloned one) died.
Why was Trip Tucker killed?
Trip is fatally wounded and dies. It was revealed in the Star Trek Enterprise relaunch novels set after “These Are the Voyages” that Trip’s death from the explosion was faked so he could join Section 31 and spy on the Romulans, but this has never been confirmed as canon.
Is Jolene Blalock still acting?
Blalock’s last appearance on screen was in 2017’s A Man For Every Month, and she hasn’t been seen since. To say Blalock’s acting career after Enterprise has been lukewarm would be stretching it. But that’s not to say her life after Enterprise hasn’t been fulfilling.
Why is warp 10 Impossible?
The warp 10 barrier is a theoretical barrier for a starship with warp drive; because warp 10 is considered infinite velocity, any vessel traveling at warp 10 would theoretically exist at all points in the universe at the same time.
