Plagiarism?[edit]

Large sections of the article appear to be copied, wholesale, from the military site http://www.csg2.navy.mil/NR1.htm as listed in the document text. While public military records are free to use, I would hope Wiki members would actually write their own articles instead of copying text. 67.189.246.211 (talk) 02:48, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Retired?[edit]

http://www.navytimes.com/news/2008/11/navy_nr1retires_113008w/

This article needs a rewrite to incorporate the retirement of the vessel.Trojancowboy (talk) 02:25, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Former Spy History?[edit]

Isn't this one of the subs that the CIA used for espionage, especially hacking into Soviet seafloor communication lines? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.165.40.135 (talk) 19:40, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Current location/disposition?[edit]

Article should probably note disposition. The reactor is likely sealed up and currently buried at Hanford. Was the hull recycled? Disposition of other subs is generally known. 66.122.34.11 (talk) 19:17, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Support Ship /Vessel "Carolyn Chouest"[edit]

The MV Carolyn Chouest is mentioned as the NR-1 support ship. However the MV Carolyn Chouest was build in 1994. Before then what was the support vessel for the NR-1? Wfoj2 (talk) 03:09, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Operating depth[edit]

Article lacks reference to operating and test depths. Sure it's classified, but that has not stopped anyone. 137.229.91.203 (talk) 08:45, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Installed power[edit]

It would be nice to know more about the reactor, but of course I can't find anything online. It must have had the world's smallest reactor given that it had a 4 knot top speed for a 400 ton vessel. Certainly less than a megawatt; 400 ton fishing trawlers have engines that size and go three times as fast. Kendall-K1 (talk) 17:03, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

source(s)[edit]

page name & italics[edit]

Two questions: (a) Given that NR-1 isn't this vessel's name, but rather a designation, should it be italicized IAW WP:ITALICS? (b) Since there is nothing at NR-1 but a redirect here, shouldn't this article be at that page? — fourthords | =Λ= | 21:12, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

The designation for the ship is italicized when the ship has no name. Like PT-109 or MS 22 per policy. Llammakey (talk) 11:24, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
