This scene in the film brought a tear to my eye. I knew the decommissioning of the Enterprise was right around the corner. Thanks for the memories.

I would always take the big E.

She was, and will always be my number one.

Good work on the angle, lighting, composition. I love the spot lights, very movies. Star Trek 3 is my favorite of the original films. Poor Enterprise. She was a classy lady, looks to be in such bad shape when returning home.

BUT I MUST PICK A NIT...

Movie era ships dont have glowing warp nacelles unless they are actually at warp.

"The great experiment, Excelsior."
"She's supposed to have transwarp drive."
"Aye. And if my grandmother had wheels, she'd be a wagon."

Nice battle wounds.
The Excelsior (or at least the class of ship) served a long time.

The original Excelsior still served in the Dominion War!
