Standard Orbit 161: Origins-USS Enterprise The Storied History of the Real Ships named Enterprise In 1964, Gene Roddenberry pitched a show about the Starship Yorktown under the Command of Captain Robert April exploring strange new worlds. As the show evolved the name of the ship was changed to Enterprise. Though there is nothing in the show history that tells us exactly why the name of the ship was changed, Zach and Ken explore the reason and the recent history of two incredible real life ships named Enterprise that could have influenced the decision. Prepare yourselves for some really interesting history and some awesome parallels between our beloved starship and the accomplishments of the historical ships. We also are able to discuss the feasibility of so many older class starships continuing their service across the TNG and DS9 timelines. Sit back and enjoy learning why "history will never forget the name; Enterprise! Hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore Feature Welcome to Standard Orbit!
