HMS Invincible, and The Trouble With Tribbles

Do you remember that scene in the original Star Trek series episode The Trouble With Tribbles when Scotty and some of the Enterprise gang were in a bar on Deep Space Station K7 and there were also some Klingons in the bar, and one of the Klingons suggested that the Enterprise should be hauled away as garbage? Scotty didn't take too kindly to that suggestion.

I wonder if he'd have reacted a little more gently if, instead, the Enterprise had been listed on a web site to be sold for scrap:

Man, seeing the once proud ship going out like this...it's depressing.

Yes! We just watched that episode just today! I thought I would read about a huge mouse infestation or something like that in the captions.

What are the alternatives for a vessel that has reached the end of its life? Scuttling or selling. Selling makes the government a few quid...
