from what ive read the reason why the E is getting scrapped is cause in the wake of 9/11(2001) she was recalled from the indian ocean of to a point in the persian gulf,her and her entire task force went flank speed all the way there.but those 8 reactors pushed out enough energy for the E for her to reach the 50-60 knot range all the way there beating her task force by days and damaging her keel in the process.it is sad they wont just repair the damage instead of scrapping her.
