With the final flight and landing of the Space Shuttle Atlantis taking place earlier this week, did you know that according to Astro Engine:
Space Shuttle Enterprise was the first ever shuttle to be constructed. It never made it into space, it was used purely for atmospheric test flights, but Enterprise was a significant craft. Originally NASA planned to designate the shuttle Constitution, but after a a sustained write-in campaign, NASA changed its name in honour of the Starship Enterprise from the original series of Star Trek. In 1976, the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) was being captained by Captain Kirk (played by William Shatner), and some of the original series actors were at the roll-out ceremony in Palmdale manufacturing facility in California....
Here's the final landing of the Space Shuttle Atlantis from NASA TV.

Beam me up Scotty.
