The Enterprise was succeeded by the USS Enterprise (CVN-65).
In an alternate timeline in which Germany invaded the United States of America, the Enterprise was destroyed. After seeing the mission patch on Jonathan Archer's Starfleet uniform, depicting the Enterprise NX-01, Alicia Travers assumed that he was a sailor who managed to escape the naval vessel before it sank.

Background information Edit
This was the historical World War II aircraft carrier, Enterprise, after which Gene Roddenberry named his fictional starship, USS Enterprise (NCC-1701). (The Making of Star Trek, p. 164) Like its fictional counterpart, the historical Enterprise has become one of history's most celebrated vessels.
Following the tradition set in The Motion Picture and Star Trek: The Next Generation, Archers' Enterprise NX-01 also had a display of the historical lineage of ships called Enterprise aboard in his ready room. In this case it was a series of four artistic prints comprising the frigate Enterprise, the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN-65), the space shuttle Enterprise (OV-101), and Archer's own ship. These prints were made by John Eaves, who actually made a series of five. However due to space limitations on the wall, one had to be left out. The one chosen to be left out portrayed the USS Enterprise (CV-6). 
The Enterprise appears in the short story "World of Strangers" in Star Trek: Enterprise Logs.
