To boldly go...

...and get the stuffing beat out of it. That seems to be the usual fate of the movie version of the good ship Enterprise.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture - minor damage by the initial attack by V'Ger.

The Enterprise about to get smacked in the nose by a V'Ger scanning torpedo.

Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan - pulverized by the USS Reliant in a truly epic example of good old fashioned space opera. Kaaaaaahn!

Enterprise takes a hard hit to the port side...

...and gets in a little return fire.

Star Trek: The Search For Spock - further pulverized by a Klingon Bird of Prey.


Bird of Prey captured, reamed Bounty, used to terrorize fishermen and save whales, among other things.

Star Trek: The Voyage Home - USS Enterprise-A did not appear to the very end of the film and was thus safe. For once.

I wonder how many movies I'll survive?

Star Trek: The Final Frontier - pulverized by another Bird of Prey. BoP destroyed by God. Yes, really.

The Klingon Bird of Prey.

Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country - further pulverized by yet another Bird of Prey. BoP destroyed by trick torpedo.

Lock weapons on target!

Star Trek: Generations - The Enterprise-D destroyed by - wait for it - another Bird of Prey. BoP destroyed by trickery and torpedo; Enterprise main hull lost in warp-core breach, saucer section crash landed.

The Duras Sisters put some pain on the Enterprise-D.

Saucer section reentry.

Note the combat record here. Klingon Birds of Prey put some serious hurt on the various incarnations of Enterprise. General Martok was right to stick with the Rotarrin.

Star Trek: First Contact - Enterprise-E taken over by Borg but for once not pulverized.

Rumor is that the Millenium Falcon is among the combatants.

Star Trek: Insurrection - Enterprise-E pulverized by two Son'a battleships, saved only by timely warp-core ejection.

A second ago, there were two Son'a battleships in this scene.

Star Trek: Nemesis - Enterprise-E pulverised by Romulan battleship Scimitar, which was destroyed by...ramming.

Scimitar, meet Enterprise.

And things don't get much better in the alternate timeline.

Star Trek - pulverized by the future-Romulan mining ship Narada (which had earlier destroyed both a large squadron of Klingon BoPs and a big chunk of Starfleet), then further damaged by a black hole. Escape was by yet another timely warp-core ejection.

Enterprise and Narada face off over Vulcan...

Star Trek Into Darkness - pulverized by the Federation battleship Revenge.

...and confronts the Federation dreadnaught Revenge in the Neutral Zone.

And there is your Trekker post for the day. Enjoy!
