It doesn't exist.  Won't even be laid down until 2018 or commissioned until 2025.  She'll probably never see the light of day.

Enterprise went from being a dinky little thing to two badass ACs!

I'm not really into military history, but I really like this. Makes me want to learn more about these ships and the people who served on them. The space shuttle at the end is cool!

Nice work, as always.

Whopps. This appeared in a different place than my previous message. Anyway, I was saying that I recall similar a poster very smilar to this in a Star Trek movie or episode somewhere, though I forget which one or what scene.

Ditto!

Well, similar to it anyway... I didn't notice the copyright date on this. But I know I saw a poster of very similar design - and this was well over ten years ago.

Yeah, the artwork is all original, but the concept is not, I'm afraid. It's tough to be truly original. The TV show "Enterprise" shows pictures of some of the ships that were named Enterprise and in "Star Trek: First Contact" there are models of all the starships on the wall in Piccard's ready room. I'm pretty sure that there is a picture collage on the wall aboard Enterprise in one of the other Star Trek movies too.

Yeah... it might have been the TV show Enterprise. If so, it has to be one of the ones in the Fan Collector series though (the one about the Borg or the two parter in the parallel universe, most likely), as those are the only episodes of that particular show I ever saw after the first few episodes - which I thought were so rotten that I gave up on the entire series in general.
And oh yeah I know what you mean by originality. Time and again I have written stories that were original as far as I knew only to see the same ideas actually used on a TV show on some later date.
I evenb once created a fictional creature known as a vampirate back when I was a kid (in fact I imagined the real life 19th century pirate Jean La Fitte to be one for God knows what forgotten reason after I saw the 1958 Yul Brynner movie The Buccaneer), only to see that name and concept used in a series of children's books (a great many) years later. Don't know how successful the books were were, but regardless it means now *I* can never use that name and concept without being accused of plagarism! **ARRHH!!!**
