Don't tell me, captain is James t Kirk?
Ahem... first HMS Enterprise dates back to 1705. She was actually a French ship captured, and since Enterprise worked in both French and English, the RN kept the name. (Same goes for the first HMS Invincible.) She only lasted a couple of years, but the RN then built a second Enterprise in 1709. So, given that the Americas were still then a vaguely loyal colony, we got there first!Why would RN name a ship with the same name as a) a GBFO space shuttle and b) Herald of Free....
The RN had a habit of buying captured enemy vessels into the Service.Don't tell me, captain is James t Kirk?

There is something in your post I can’t remember reading before in recent times.60% of all Lebanon's food goes into and out of a port that's just had a 2.5ktn explosion in it.
For simple safety of navigation (and thus reduction P&I dues), an up to date port survey can only be a good thing.
measure the big hole so they have a handle on Refilling it. Plot the empteen hundred containers and other stuff littering the port bottom. It’s what she’s designed fur.I wonder when Enterprise will arrive on station and start tasking? I wonder if part of her role will be to identify smaller ports that could be used for critical supply.
Some people might wonder why sending a hydrographic vessel is helpful. It is just like sending Sappers to check roads and bridges.
