Yeah, well, and an age of sail frigate has no chance against a guided missile frigate.

Just saw the movie again. In Edison's Starfleet records another registry is given for the Franklin: NCC-7317

Would not be the first starship with two registries at the same time!

If the history is the same as in ENT, it would have to be between 2145 and 2150, the former being the year the Warp 3 barrier was first broken and the latter being the year NX-01's keel was laid as per "First Flight," whose main flashback sequences can be reliably dated to 2143 by the reference to Archer having known Tucker (to whom he is introduced in "First Flight") for 8 yeas in "Unexpected" (set mid-2151).

quote:
After 2161 (the foundation of the UFP) the ship was still being used.
Moreover, she was recommissioned with a new dedication plaque, as it refers to the UFP.

quote:
- The registry was kept.
- The registry is higher then the one for Enterprise because the numbering schema was 'resetted' for the NX-01.

These are complete speculation by the authors of the article without basis in what Highsmith said. She could have had a completely different registry number before being recommissioned and "reclassified" by the UFP.

Trekcore has an article about concept art produced for the movie. It shows the Enterprise A and the Franklin (which was originally called the Pioneer and had the nacelles on the bottom).

Don't care much for the E-A concept. The neck and pylons don't agree with me at all.

OK, so it's pre-Enterprise (the show) in era, but went missing post-Enterprise? That explains the one thing that puzzled me, that a seriously pissed-at-the-world ex-MACO Major with PTSD would be given command of what was referred to in the film as a ground-breaking (for its time) experimental starship. In fact, it was actually past it when he took command.

The Franklin was probably one of my favorite things about Beyond, tbh.

I don't find it too difficult to fit her into the tech timeline either. We know there were other ships in Earth's fleet other than Enterprise, since they showed up in "The Expanse". What's there to say that the Franklin wasn't the precursor to those ships?
