That is the article I have read about the Big E's retirement. I am sure there will be another. Picard's line at the end of Generations comes to mind for me.
In memory, could the Dev's have a special ship sale or such, to include account wide unlocks of the non-combat pets(so I don't have to buy them individually), and the ship modules used to aquire the fleet refits?
March 21 1983, USS Enterprise arrived in Sasebo, Japan, for a five-day port visit, the first since 1968. The carrier returned to San Francisco Bay April 28. During the final leg of the inbound channel, approximately half a mile from the pier, USS Enterprise run aground and was delayed for five hours until the incoming tide and tugs freed her. While deployed the Air Wing flew approximately 29,000 hours and recorded over 11,000 traps.
An interesting little tidbit that was never reported to the general public, Enterprise ran aground because she lost a screw in the harbor and control was immediately lost because of the imbalance in propulsion. The prop was loose for months and was likely due to work done during the overhaul at Bremerton. I departed the ship in Sasebo so I wasn't onboard at the time of the incident, but shipmates told me the story a few years later. Word was Capt. R. J. Kelly lost his command because of the incident.
There's always hope that Nasa could name the next Enterprise. But I agree, it will be sad to see the Big-E sold for scrap. My father served on her during the Vietnam War.. Even so, my Great Uncle served on the original Big-E, during WW2. Let us hope that the Navy will give us an Enterprise. [We have China to worry about, soon enough.]
When I was in high school, I wanted to be a Naval Aviator after Top Gun's Maverick. But then in 10th or 11th grade I started to need glasses and it killed that dream. Though now I could have got corrective surgery (were it available then) since Im only a -1.0 Rx to this day. Being a Star Trek fan then too watching TNG, I let go of the aviator dream and decided I wanted to be Captain of the Enterprise. My ASVAB scores were high and the Navy was telling me I could have an job in the Navy I wanted. I seriously considered it, but in the end, I knew I valued wanting a family more and didnt want a career that had me away from my family for 6+ months at a time.
Now in hindsight, Im still comfortable with that decision as Im only going to be 35 next month and likely never would have advanced into the Big chair of the Big E in enough time before she was decommissioned regardless of how smart I am. I also dont regret it now that I see the US military are nothing but chess pieces for the world's shadow elite running things behind the curtain. I wouldnt have wanted to lose men over the crap they have us engaged in right now, pretending to fight against CIA backed Al qaeda and the like, trying to control nations for their resources.
I seriously hope they save her island at least. I want a chance to go sit in that chair someday if its only in a museum.
