Actually, that's always been an off-and-on theme throughout the 
series.  The intro to Enterprise (which has sparked considerable debate on 
/. but that's another story) kind of gives a brief history of Terran 
exploration starting with the old ships of exploration.

In Captain Archer's ready room, he has artwork of previous Enterprises.  I 
recognize the old sailing ship, the aircraft carrier and the space shuttle.

And, if I remember right, didn't they have something similar to that in the 
first Star Trek movie?
