That seems fair enough...

I think that you should start a petition of your own.

I wouldn't know where to begin or how to get it seen.
but it surely does deserve it.

Since this topic includes all ships named Enterprise here is a news report about the scrapping of the WWII era Enterprise (CV-6):

so have we figurted out the time line? accoring to my starfleet technical manual 1st edition ( yes i have one) the Heavy cruiser class (constitution) were authorised by theoriginal articles of the federation of stardate 0965.

constellation, constitution, enterprise, excalibur, exeter, farragut, hood, intrepid, kongo, lexington, potempkin, republic, valiant and yorktown.

with constellation, farragut, intrepid and valiant being lost in the line of duty.

That's a good question.
I have the articles of Federation too but this is from the Star Trek Space Chronology books. This tells us that the Constitution was launched in the 22md century

I haven't learned to read old stardates though.


Oh and don't forget Defiant.

In the original timeline, the Enterprise was supposedly launched in 2188 and Kirk's 5-year mission happened between 2207-2212 (roughly, because there was never an official date established during TOS). The closest were off-the-cuff remarks in "Where No Man Has Gone Before" and "Tomorrow is Yesterday" which suggested that TOS occurred in the 22nd-Century.

It wasn't until Star Trek II, that the series was finally established as taking place in the 23rd-Century, so there was some jiggling of the timeline to make things fit that. People then placed TOS in the early 23rd-Century. But that didn't last too long--a few years later, in Star Trek IV, Kirk told Gilian Taylor he came from the late 23rd-Century...

Yeah, it's confusing--and it's made worse by having certain dates contradict each other onscreen too. So depending on who you listen to, the USS Enterprise was originally launched in 2245 under the command of Captain Bob April, who was later succeeded by Chris Pike, and then by you-know-who. That could place Star Trek III somewhere around 2285-2286.

There's no way of knowing when the Constitution-class was originally introduced, but it might be safe to say the design might have been somewhere between 40-50 years old by the time of Star Trek III...

TNG was the first Trek series to actually establish a concrete date it was taking place in. The episode "The Neutral Zone" established that the first season took place in 2364 and subsequent 24th-Century shows have pretty much followed from there:
TNG: 2364-2370
DS9: 2369-2375
VOY: 2371-2377

I'm not sure, but was TNG set in the 2360's or 2370's?
