Wishful Starship Missions

I just watched this recent Scott Manley video and imagined a future Starship entering Lunar orbit, rendezvousing, then capturing the Apollo 11 ascent stage. Impossible task, maybe? Assuming the spacecraft is still in Lunar orbit, the mission would have to be proceeded by an intense search.

The only glitch the A-11 crew experienced with the ascent stage was the Engine Armed push-pull circuit breaker Buzz Aldrin accidently broke. When prompted by the ascent checklist, he reset it with his felt tipped pen. (Buzz still has both of those items). Otherwise the Eagle performed flawlessly. Boy, what a museum prize to return to earth!
