    Minor damage at most. How was it stolen from Texas? It belongs to the entire U.S. and it was shipped from Virginia!

    I'm sure you all know this, but the Shuttle Enterprise was named after the Starship Enterprise.

    True, fans of Star Trek lobbied for the name, but the irony is that it never went into space.

    yeah, I know, but at least the crew of the Starship Enterprise was there for the roll out.
