Which Enterprise you're talking about I mean a future ship or what? Since this day no one with that shipname was a class of it's own. So there's obviously no Enterprise-class.

The Next Enterprise Then it would be one of a kind since it would be the only ship in its class

The Enterprise has always belonged to part of another, larger class.  It would have to be a completely new design, to merit its own class.


Also, aren't the classes named after a prototype starship?  So, you probably couldn't have a ship-class named after one that was already flying around somewhere.  Therefore, the original ship, and the class named after it, would probably have to be either something original or a name that had not been used for a century or so.

There's no next Enterprise, but it opens up a lot of speculation while a new movie is coming with a already known NCC-1701 excists.

Each ship class in modern Navies are named after the first ship build of that design.  For their to be an Enterprise class of ship the Federation would have to name the fist ship of a new design the Enterprise.  Oh there is an Enterprise class ship and it is the only ship of it class.  The soon to be retired USS Enterprise the first nuclear powered air craft carrier.

No. The Galaxy and Constitution classes are both good designs for their era -- or supposed to be. So why would Starfleet not make more of them?

In real life the USS Enterprise is the only one in its class, so it would be nice to make the star trek one one of a kind

I don't think it matters too much. It would seem to reason that if a design is successful and effective, more such ships would be built and a class would be born. Unless the ship was an experimental platform prototype that failed...which wouldn't be good either...I'd assume they'd make multiple ships within any design class.

hmm... Somehow I don't think they'd make a failed model into their flagship.

if they desinged a new enterprise and it was a good design then they could make the enterprise with a difrent shaped deflector or nacells or even the neck just so that it looks difrent (the body work not structualy) so they could make more in that class then the enterprise would still be one of a kind 


what do you think would you agree this instead

But, the latest Enterprise has such a successful history that it would be counterproductive to slap its prestigious name on an experimental vessel that may not pan out to be as advanced as what its designers dream it will be.


Besides, there are plenty of names of prestigious individuals who have not yet had the honor of having a vessel or a class named after them.  So, I think a new ship--and its new class, if it proves to be successful--should start off with its own unique name, to create its own unique history and traditions.

Which Enterprise?


The original one from TOS was one of 14 in the Constitution class.


The one in TNG was one of 2 in the Galaxy class.


At some point after the 1st movie they did make the refit version The Enterprise class. It might not have been wiht the refit but may have been with NCC-1701-A.
