Minos Edit

Wasn't the Drake Riker turned down the one the same one that was destroyed on Minos? I seem to recall that Rice took command because Riker turned it down. --Steve 19:40, 17 Jul 2004 (CEST)

Error in summary? Edit

In the episode "The Arsenal of Freedom", Lt. Yar states that Riker "turned down command of the Drake to take this assignment", which I assume is the XO position for the Enterprise. Does this not suggest that he was offered command BEFORE becoming the XO? If so, then this would differ from the current summary. User: 18:09, 14 December 2006

Named after Edit

Is there a citation for the claim that it was named after Sir Francis Drake? Or is it equally likely that it was named after any of the myriad astronomers, pilots, or the type of dragon also named "drake"? 02:45, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

I couldn't find one, so I added an incite tag.– Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 03:50, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
Since no citation has turned up, I have removed the note.– Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 11:09, December 11, 2010 (UTC)
And now I've found one. :-) –Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 00:27, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

Our top speed is Warp 3. Ok, Paul, really? Edit

Considering that this information only came from the projected hologram of Paul Rice that appeared to Will Riker, and this image lacked much of Rice's actual knowledge of Federation starships and tech, as evidenced by its interactions with Riker, should we treat the "Our top speed in Warp 3" line as non-evidenced and very possibly an incorrect/ignorant statement by an alien computer program that was impersonating a starship captain, and probably not representative of any active 24th century Starfleet starships (at least not anything designated a "cruiser" regardless if it's a "light cruiser"). We should expect that a 24th century cruiser would have a top speed much higher than the NX-01 (I know, different scales, but Warp 3 on new scale is still slower than Warp 5 on the old scale). 02:20, September 8, 2017 (UTC)BG

Agreed. Moved into the article content with the sketchy conversation portion of the article. --Alan del Beccio (talk) 12:06, September 8, 2017 (UTC)
