Enterprise, but is still called Enterprise.
Actually, that one can be explained away with a throwaway line from the DS9 episode "Trials and Tribble-ations". When the two guys from Temporal Investigations are interviewing Sisko, and he talks about seeing the Enterprise ahead, one of them asks him, "Which one? There were five starships named Enterprise."

His partner interrupts, "Six."

Well, Archer had a beagle. Then a young engineer named Montgomery Scott wanted to prove a point about using a transporter from one planet to another...

I do believe that was referring to the Enterprise-E.

Add the NX-01 to all the pre-Enterprise (by filming, not by chronology) Enterprises, and you get SEVEN.

Infinite possibilities have implications that could not be completely understood if you turned this entire universe into a giant supercomputer.
And I don't pretend to understand them.

There are others that struck me at the time, but I can't be bothered to go recall them just now.
I haven't watched much TOS but IIRC The Romulans were not known even by the Vulcans i might have that backwards though. The worst crime was the self indulgent Ferengi episode but things could get lost in the shuffle after 200 years. That and Tellarites have different hands.
Play more STO Foundry! (You can thank me later.)

I'll have to go watch the episode later, but as I recall, Spock was as surprised as anyone when they finally got a visual of the Romulan bridge. I know for sure none of the humans aboard knew anything about it; in fact, the navigator reacted rather poorly, immediately accusing Spock of being untrustworthy. (He was reprimanded by Kirk, repeatedly.)

I don't think the E had been commissioned yet; if I'm not mistaken, that episode took place before the Big D crashed.

The D crashed in 2371. Both "Trials and Tribblations" and the space battle in "First Contact" took place in 2373. So the DTI agents probably were referring to the E.
