The USS Enterprise (NCC-1008) was an uncommissioned cruiser starship of the Horizon-class proposed to be built by the Federation Starfleet.
The project was canceled and construction the vessel never completed. (Heavy Cruiser Evolution Blueprints)
- Its possible that whatever materials already invested in contract #1008 went on to become another starship of a different class bearing that number, or another.
