In 1986, the USS Ranger (CV-61) stood in for the USS Enterprise (CVN-65) for scenes filmed for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. The USS Ranger was decommissioned on 10 July 1993 after 36 years of service, and was at the Naval Inactive Ship Maintenance Facility, Bremerton, Washington. On 12 July 2015, Ranger arrived at Brownsville for scrapping. The scrapping process was completed on 1 November 2017, though more than five tons of historic items from the ship were preserved for display at the USS Lexington Museum.
