The Decommissioning of the Enterprise-A by SpiderTrekfan616 The Decommissioning of the Enterprise-A by SpiderTrekfan616
NCC-1701-A
U.S.S. ENTERPRISE
2285-2293

=/\=

Uhura: Captain, I have orders from Starfleet Command, We're to put back to spacedock immediately... To be decommissioned.
*Long Pause*
Spock: If I were human, I believe my response would be "Go to hell."
*Kirk Glances at Spock*
Spock: If I were human.
*Kirk looks at the viewer*
Chekov: Course Heading Keptin?
Kirk: Second star to the right, and straight on 'til morning.

 This is the Enterprise-A's end in Starfleet service. But not the end of it's life, As you can see she's having her name stripped from her hull as part of her decommissioning which was ordered by Admiral Androvar Drake, she'll also be stripped of all classified Starfleet technologies. Later on the Enterprise becomes a part of the Chal defense force being fitted with Klingon disruptors, but in a botched revenge attempt by Admiral Drake to kill Kirk, The Enterprise was destroyed in the corona of one of Chal's binary stars.

Fun Facts about the Enterprise-A
She was originally called the U.S.S. Ti-Ho NCC-1798 and was the secondary testbed for the Transwarp Drive, her construction was completed in 2285 just before the Excelsior's failed transwarp run, afterwards both the Excelsior and the Ti-Ho were fitted with conventional warp drive, a year afterward she was rechristened Enterprise and as it turns out the numerous malfunctions (In Star Trek V: The Final Frontier) were a result of the Cetacean probe's destructive transmissions.

Actually, Ti-Ho came from Mr Scott's Guide...the better assumption is that she was the Yorktown (which was indeed messed up by the Whalesong Probe) in ST IV.

Memory Beta says it was the Ti-Ho so I went with that.

Beta includes all the non-canon and disputed canon stuff.  Memory Alpha is a better site.

But to each their own.

That's a great ending from Star Trek VI.

I love that scene with Sulu where the Excelsior is trying to get to the Enterprise in time

I swear, Almost Every Enterprise in existence has either been destroyed or decommissioned within a decade or two. The only Enterprise to have lived for more than two decades was the 1701 itself
