just for the record, i saw some of "Where Silence Has Lease" the other day and am pretty sure the plaque on the Yamato bridge actually said "ENTERPRISE" or another word of similar length. -- Captain M.K.B. 23:18, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
- It certainly does look far too long to be 'Yamato'. I also doubt that any plaque would have been made for "Contagion" given that all we saw was the captain sitting in front of the tactical rail. – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk).
Jefferson Quote Edit
Has anyone else noticed that the Jefferson quote on the plaque is wrong? The full quote is "I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal emnity against all forms of tyrrany over the mind of man." I'm wondering why the production staff chose to cut out the "altar of God" segment. Might it have something to do with Gene Roddenberry's atheism? I hope not. I understand why he might choose to leave organized religion out of his series, but altering a Thomas Jefferson quote seems to cross some sort of line. Taking words out of the mouths of great men and pretneding they were never said seems to clash seriously with the ideals of tolerance and diversity which make Star Trek so wonderful.

- I think it's more likely that a. they misremembered the quote/ copied it from an inaccurate source or b. the full sentence didn't fit well on the dedication plaque.– Cleanse 23:26, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
