Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

It's silly dialogue - if one were desperate to rationalize it in-story, one might suggest that Sulu pompously thinks he's impressing that young woman with something he considers arcane knowledge. In that case it should have been more obviously played for laughs, since the woman's reaction ought to have been some variation on the theme of "duh!"
