I'm sure I'll be ridiculed for this but I believe we need at least two or more conventional CV's as well. Nukes have their indisputable advantages but so does conventional. Conventional Plants offers a quicker training & qualification timeframe & for the Propulsion crew. You can take a guy out of Basic and put him in The Hole no schools needed. It's OJT for a lot of guys.
Nuke Propulsion crews are cream of the crop. It's tough or it was tough to get through the school and it should be so. I know a guy who is a Math professor who didn't make it through. I also knew another guy who was a genius but also an impulsive screw up with no common sense who thankfully washed out. Both guys were in my shop LOL.

That is not going to happen. Nuclear plants are needed because of the of the power they produce. Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System(EMALS), railguns, free electron lasers, dynamic armor and other future upgrades require large sums of power that only a nuclear reactor like the A1B on the Gerald R. Ford class can provide.
