In what ways does the U.S.S. Enterprise function as a character, not just a vehicle in Star Trek? Does “she” have a personality? Do the other ships in the Star Trek universe have the same level of character development?
I feel like the Enterprise, like any vehicle or building – because the Enterprise is a home as well as a method of transport, is a character and has a personality as a result of the ways that the other characters treat her and this is true of other ships in the Star Trek universe and also starbases like DS9.
