"To boldly go where no man has gone before."

Justin Lin, the film's director, named the starship after his father, Frank Lin. The wider spacing between the 'k' and 'l' on the plaque's "USS Franklin" banner text was an Easter egg (or in-joke) which subtly underscored this. [1] Justin Lin kept a film-used plaque following the end of filming. [2]
