Uhura and Chekov planning to inflitrate the Enterprise

The eighth USS Enterprise (CVN-65) was a US Navy aircraft carrier in the 20th and 21st centuries and the second carrier to bear the name. Commissioned on November 25, 1961, three years after the scrapping of the previous carrier named Enterprise, the new Enterprise was one of the most powerful ships of its time being powered by a nuclear fission reactor.

In 1986, Enterprise was docked at the Alameda Naval Base in San Francisco when it was breached by an apparent Soviet spy. The "spy" was Starfleet Commander Pavel Chekov, who had been collecting nuclear radiation from the ship's reactor to recrystallize dilithium for a captured Klingon Bird-of-Prey that had travelled back in time. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

Over a century later, the ready room of Enterprise (NX-01) featured a sketch of the carrier as well as other early vessels named Enterprise. A sculpture of the carrier would also adorn the wall of the observation lounge on the USS Enterprise-D during the first few years of that vessel's service.

In Star Trek IV, the "part" of USS Enterprise was actually filled by USS Ranger (CV-61, Forrestal class), because Enterprise was on deployment at the time of the movie's filming.
