Is it my imagination, or does that actress look too old for the part? And what's the sailing ship for? As an adaptation, this isn't looking up.
"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."

Okay, it's probably not that. I was wondering the same thing when I saw the photo. I just can't think of anyplace else where a ship gets into things.
The motto of the Corbettite Order seems to be Ite Animose... a Latin phrase that can be translated as "go courageously." Alternatively, it can be rendered as "boldly go," which bears a striking resemblance to a phrase heard during the opening credits of a certain popular television series.
