After the Destruction of the original USS Enterprise, the Enterprise-A was put into service in 2286. During its shakedown it was called to investigate a kidnapping on Nimbus 3, where it was then taken over by Sybok. The ship was eventually recovered. In 2293 the Enterprise served as an escort to Kronos 1 the Klingon Ambassadors flag ship, there is was drawn into a conspiracy to derail the Khitomer Accords.

The Forth Starship the bear the name Enterprise. The Enterprise-B was an Excelsior-Class Refit. It was launched in the same year the Enterprise-A was decommissioned. During the ships maiden Voyage (a quick run around the block, according to Captain Harriman) It's received a distress signal by two ships trapped in an energy ribbon called the Nexus. Because the ship launched without all its equipment (No Torpedos, No Tractor beam) it became trapped in the Nexus too when it moved to Transporter range to assist the two ships.
To free the ship James T Kirk went down to deflector control to initiate a Resonance Burst. As the ship began to get free, it is hit with a discharge from the Nexus that causes extensive damage to the engineering areas. Kirk is believed to have died from the accident and the Enterprise-Bs first mission became notorious for this.

Thanks, for the unofficial title. I figured I should share my knowledge. It would be nice if there was some sort of badge for this.
