The Enterprise E was launched in 2372. The module design was not implemented at that time. In had a refit done between 2375 to 2379. Then the battle with the Scimitar took place.

We know it had another major refit take place before the revived Data took charge in 2386.

That means the ship is thirty seven years old and Data has been its commander for twenty three of those years.

I think that CBS and Cryptic can say that this ship that was never designed to use modules and has had over 35 years in service can be safely retired and decommissioned without having to blow it up for stories sake. Refits can only do so much, and 23 years is a long time since the last one.

I was even thinking of making a Foundry mission where one has to help get the original Sovereign back to Sol for decommissioning. Though that one would be replaced by a 'modern' Sovereign class.
