The final voyage...

into a sea of nothing but heartbreak.  Today marks the start of the final cruise of the U.S.S. Enterprise.  Soon, she will be decommissioned and have her precious fuel removed, then possibly scrapped.  I can think of no better send off than the one uttered by 'the shat' himself (even though it was for the fictional ship):

"Captain's Log, stardate 9529.1. This is the final cruise of the Starship Enterprise under my command. This ship and her history will shortly become the care of another crew. To them and their posterity will we commit our future. They will continue the voyages we have begun, and journey to all the undiscovered countries, boldly going where no man... where no *one* has gone before"
Here's to the "Big E"
