Captain James Kirk back in action

Quote:
“We are absolutely fired up to see Zumwalt get under way. For the crew and all those involved in designing, building and readying this fantastic ship, this is a huge milestone,” the ship’s skipper, Navy Capt. James Kirk, said before the ship departed.
Captain Kirk, a graduate of Starfish Academy, plans to boldly fish where no man has fished before.

A boat made for weapon systems not yet operational...

Its cool... but is it?

Russian Military Analysts:

Quote:
With an annual defense budget of over $600 billion, the Pentagon can take the liberty of conducting various kinds of experiments, including spending $4.4 billion on a single destroyer. By comparison, one US [Virginia-class] nuclear submarine, the newest in the fleet, costs about $2.2 billion. In other words, they used the budget for two nuclear subs to build one Zumwalt. What can be said? Americans love grandiose projects which sometimes go beyond the scope of reason.
Rail guns are cool. The ship is a floating powerplant. The overall scope of this though seems to have missed the mark...

Now, every time that ship goes into port, it will be met by dozens of Trekkies.
