Maybe the Enterprise A? Would have been a somber entry, especially if Enterprise D had mentioned it. Never read or heard of her being scrapped after ST XI. Though by all logical thinking...A ship that had taken the beating that the A had would have been salvaged easier than repaired, but Scotty may have had a few favors to call in. (Repair and keep in a museum) Perhaps a story to write, but better left unsaid and for the viewer to guess how the A managed to get there. IDK, but still would have been cool.
