- "There was the 'mention' of the USS Galaxy in Star Trek Nemesis during the stellar cartography scene. Other than that, I think there was an appearance in "Tears of the Prophets", other than that I am unsure. - Adm. Enzo Aquarius 22:01, 16 Dec 2005 (UTC)
USS Galaxy first appeared in "Yesterday's Enterprise"? Edit
Would the Galaxy have technically appeared in "Yesterday's Enterprise" first?
The Enterprise in that timeline is said to have launched earlier. It's stated to be the first Galaxy class ship as well. Since it is still "Galaxy class" and not "Enterprise class" in that timeline and it is the first ship of its class, that almost necessitates that the Enterprise-D in that timeline is a rechristened U.S.S, Galaxy.– The preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk).
- Why do you say "technically" appeared? It either did or did not. I don't recall any mention of the Enterprise ever having been another ship in that timeline- what is your source of that information?--31dot 01:41, December 8, 2010 (UTC)
- 31Dot, the anonymous writer may be referring to this piece of dialogue from TNG: "Yesterday's Enterprise" - She was the first Galaxy Class warship built by the Federation. Forty two decks. Capable of transporting over six thousand troops. (Tasha Yar speaking to Richard Castillo in the corridor)Throwback 11:07, May 5, 2011 (UTC)
- There could be any number or reasons why the first Galaxy class ship in the alternate timeline was not the USS Galaxy. In the US Navy there have been occasions where the class leader was not the first ship to be put into service, for various reasons. That could be the case in the alternate timeline, or it could be some other reason, but whatever it is, we don't know that the alternate-Enterprise was previously named the Galaxy.--31dot 11:26, May 5, 2011 (UTC)
