====Refits====
 
In the late [[2260s]] to early [[2270s]], the ''Constitution''-class starships underwent a major [[refit]] program. The actual refitting took eighteen months of work and essentially a new vessel was built onto the bones of the old, replacing virtually every major system, ensuring their continued service for the next several years, with the USS ''Enterprise'' continuing to serve in its prominent role. In the early 2270's, the ''Enterprise'' was critical in defending the Federation from several external threats, including the [[V'Ger]] probe, and [[Khan Noonien Singh]]. ({{Film|1}}, {{Film|2}})

The new designs and components tested and proven aboard the ''Enterprise'' influenced a generation of starship design, from the {{class|Miranda}} to the {{class|Constellation}}, as well as other retro-fitted ''Constitution''s. ({{film|2}})

The ''Enterprise'' was tasked to investigate, and Spock deferred his command to Admiral Kirk. Subsequent [[Battle of the Mutara Nebula|engagements with ''Reliant'']] left the ship badly damaged with cadet and crew deaths, including Captain Spock. ({{film|2}})

Upon the ''Enterprise'' returning to Earth, Starfleet [[Commander, Starfleet]] [[Fleet Admiral]] [[Morrow]] announced that the starship, at that point forty years old, would be decommissioned. When Morrow denied Kirk requesting permission to return to the [[Mutara sector]], Kirk conspired with his [[senior officer]]s and stole the ''Enterprise'' from [[Earth Spacedock]], in order to recover Spock's body from the [[Genesis Planet]] – to bring it and Spock's ''[[katra]]'', the latter possessed by [[Leonard McCoy]], to [[Mount Seleya]] on {{dis|Vulcan|planet}}. As part of the plan, Kirk had Scott rig up an automation system to run the ''Enterprise'' so easily that "a chimpanzee and two trainees" could have handled the craft.
