Ha! Fair enough.
That said, though... while the Enterprise-A was officially decommissioned, it was still intact, and still named "U.S.S. Enterprise". It could, IN THEORY, have been taken back out again (well, probably not, since they probably removed the warp core, etc...) but even so, The U.S.S. Enterprise A and B existed at the same time.
I mean, I can see the arguments on both sides, sure... but the point is that you CAN carry along a ship name all you want... you just have to jump through seemingly unnecessary hoops to do so. Especially given that there is nothing currently preventing two captains from having the SAME ship name... only from preventing ONE captain from having multiple ships under the same name. *shrug*
Makes no difference to me... I can do the name shuffle all I need to. It just seems a little unnecessary.
