Why the Entreprise?

Post by ncc1701e »

Why is it always the Entreprise?

Carrier battles: USA 5 CVs - Japan 6 CVs.

Several times done and this is always the Entreprise that is sunk.
Why always the Entreprise? Is it bad luck really?

The big E needs a special treatment.

I hate when I see the Entreprise sunk. And, honestly, I don't care of the other CVs. Just of this one.

An old Constitution-class starship, I don't care of this one. [:D]

As the Allies I don't have the Entreprise in my fleet. [:D]

I think you are talking Starfleet.


Honestly I always lose the Lexington.

The Enterprise was the only one of the original USN Pacific War carriers to survive the war and it was the most deocrated USN warship of WW2. At one point it was the only functional USN carrier in the Pacific (and it was damaged). At that time a banner went up on the Enterprise, reading "Enterprise vs. Japan".

The WW2 carrier Enterprise CV-6 was the seventh ship of the name in the USN. See https://www.navalhistory.org/2015/03/06 ... -to-cvn-80

There was one other surviving original carrier from the prewar US Pacific Fleet. The USS Saratoga which was at San Diego on December 7th 1941, embarking her air group. By mid-1945 she had pretty much been converted to a training carrier but she was still on the active list.

The unlucky and pretty much useless Saratoga survived, but not as a combat carrier, only as a training vessel. I should’ve clarified my statement. On VJ-Day only the Enterprise was still fighting.

I always thought it a shame that the ultimate reward for all that gallant service was a trip down the Hudson to the New Jersey shipbreakers. Enterprise with her tripod mast removed prior to final disposal.

I agree, shame that the project to transform it into a museum didn't work.
