Great inspiring image.
Strangely, rather than going off on a journey of adventure, in my mind the 'old' Constitution ship is having a reserved honour escort back to the Planitia Yards to be scrapped at the end of its service life.
And no, I'm no fan of the Abrams ship (or movie), and I'm in fact currently enjoying watching through the original series eps. Might even watch the movies afterwards too.
But I've always imagined whatever happened to those 'other' Constitution class ships at the end of their service life......kind of a final proud but sad moment in their life.
