    Just expressing an opinion of the quality of the show (no flames please!)

    OK, another book based question from me:
    What was the fate of INSS MacArthur?

    In proper chronological order it would be Captain Johnathan Archer, but serieswise it would be Pike.

    NX-01 and NCC-1701 respectively.

    As to the MacArthur, she was abandoned when her crew was infested by 'Motie Watchmakers' and then destroyed by the Lenin to prevent human technology from getting to the Motie.

    Paraphrased from last paragraph:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INSS_MacArthur
