Edited this page for a grammatical error, specifically the use of the definite article before the abbreviation HMS (His/Her Majesty's Ship). Reason: one would not say "The Her Majesty's Ship Clement". Whereas one would, however, say "The Clement". This is a common error in US English.--Mr Closet 19:44, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

And, Trek used that wording all the time, and it being a US show, that wording has also become standard accepted usage, however wrong Canadians and "proper" English speakers may find it. sulfur 19:52, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
