Starfleet Officers are well trained, but who would want to serve on her? That would be kind of spooky. I kind of feel like they would have decalred her a grave site or a memorial or something. After all, over 400 people died on that ship. That's just my thoughts. On a side note, I got the idea when I learned that somebody had created a web series about the re-crewed Exeter.
Uh yeah. Better go ask all those WWII Navy Vets that served on re-commissioned battleships how much that matters, you know the ones that they salvaged from the bottom of Pearl Harbour?
Uh, actually I live about 20 minutes from Pearl Harbor, and I can tell you that while MOST of the ships from the bombing were repaired and sent back into service, USS Arizona still sits at the bottom of the harbor with a memorial built over it. It was declared a grave site. Granted the ship was damaged beyond repair, but Starfleet was not in a time of war.
