This article reports that S. Truver closes his article by categorizing the decommissioned Aegis cruiser Ticonderoga as "the lead ship of the class that truly transformed the U.S. Navy." With due respect to those who sailed on board the Ticonderoga and her sister ships, the ship that truly transformed not only the U.S. Navy, but also 20th-century naval warfare, was the Nautilus, the world's first nuclear-powered warship.
