The Enterprise, nicknamed the Big 'E', was the world's first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier when it was commissioned November 25, 1961. At the time, the Enterprise was also the longest ship in the world, at more than 1,100 feet.
Woo-hoo, local story. Never did any time on the Enterprise. She's got a unique look compared to the newer carriers. I imagine the original 8 reactors were a bear to keep manning for.
