Origin[edit | edit source]

The USS Enterprise (CV-6) is the seventh US Navy vessel to bear the name. olloquially called "the Big E", she was the sixth aircraft carrier of the United States Navy. Launched in 1936, she was one of only three prewar carriers to survive combat. She participated in more major actions of the war against Japan than any other United States ship. This included the attack at Pearl Harbor, the Guadalcanal Campaign, and Battles of Midway, Leyte Gulf and various other skirmishes. On three occasions during the Pacific War, the Japanese prematurely announced that the Enterprise had been sunk in battle, a fact that gave her the name "The Grey Ghost".

Effects[edit | edit source]

Activation requires heavy damage to either her structure or navigational system. She will absorb massive amounts of surrounding water and incorporate it into the frame itself. The liquid will flow to whatever locations are damaged and then solidify into a durable and buoyant concrete-like isotope. Subsequent damage will only cause the top layers to turn to liquefy, absorbing the blunt trauma of the impact and extinguishing any resulting fires. More water will just be sucked up to keep the frame stable and the ship afloat. However, fixing the exterior hull and internal mechanics will deal an overwhelming amount of injuries to the crew, many of which result in fatalities.

She was intended for scraping at a New Jersey naval yard. However, attempts to disassemble her only made the nearby water repair her. Agents quickly heard the astounding dilemma it presented workers and used several government contacts to transport her while maintaining the story she was fully destroyed.
