The future USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000) gets underway in Bath, Maine to join the fleet. The guided-missile destroyer is the lead ship in the Zumwalt class and the first ship to be named for Adm. Elmo Zumwalt.

After commissioning in Baltimore, Maryland, on Oct. 15, the ship will sail to its homeport in San Diego. Soon after arriving, DDG-1000 will enter a post-delivery industrial availability and mission systems activation period to ready this stealth destroyer for operational testing and its maiden deployment.
