What happened to the warp nacelles?

I saw that documentary about the first launch with the warp nacelles where James Cromwell depicted Zefram Cochrane . I think Bezos missed a step.

I think they should have launched James Cromwell instead!

I think what bothers me most is them being called Astronauts. I'm not a pilot if I take a trip on a 737 or a chauffeur if I ride in a limo.

When will someone like Warren Buffet buy a ride and take the "oldest" crown away? Wally Funk did not get to keep it for very long.

Yep, it appears there was no sacrificial red-shirt "Ensign Smith" aboard.
