Excerpt from Enterprise Logs by Carol Greenburg
"Don't let them promote you... don't let them transfer you... don't let them do anything that takes you off the bridge of that ship.... Because while you're there... you can make a difference."
-- Captain James T. Kirk,
Star Trek: Generations
The U.S.S. Enterprise has been a part of America since the Revolutionary War and, thanks to Gene Roddenberry, has ensured the name's place in Earth's future. What other fictional creation could possibly be so firmly entrenched in our culture? After all, the Enterprise model proudly hangs in the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., and the first space shuttle was named Enterprise by popular demand. Recently, the public voted for Star Trek -- depicted by the Enterprise -- to join the fifteen stamps symbolizing the 1960s.
"My feeling was that if you didn't believe in the spaceship... if you didn't believe you were in a vehicle traveling through space, a vehicle that made sense, whose layout and design made sense... then you wouldn't believe in the series," Gene Roddenberry said in The Making of Star Trek. Without an identifiable ship, its captain and crew would be irrelevant. As important as the captains within these pages are, so too is the vessel they command.
Originally calling it the Yorktown, Roddenberry quickly renamed the ship Enterprise -- why is undocumented, but one could argue the name alone conjures up man's spirit and in one word sums up the nature of the captain.
