The Trumpeter kit portrays the ship as decommissioned, in 2009.
So, the era you wish to portray will need some consideration. While I totally agree that the Trumpeter kit is far and away the best detailed, that detail is for 2009. It might actually be a problem if you wish to do a much earlier period. You will be leaving off much of the parts in the Trumpeter kit, and will probably also have to cut/remove various platforms, etc. Might then be just as easy--perhaps easier--to get the 1968 version and add missing detail with aftermarket, only getting the details you need/want.
Between the 1998 Fujimi and the 2009 Trumpeter, I would agree to go with the Trumpeter, even if you wish a 1998 version. You will leave some stuff off the Trumpeter kit still, but not nearly as much. Those two are closer in era.
