Re: Typhon Pact: Plagues of Night by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Thanks guys. I wasn't sure if it might have been mentioned in Rough Beasts or Plagues somewhere that I missed, or if perhaps DRGIII had said definitively whom she was named for somewhere online.

In lieu of anything being explicitly established, I would tend to presume that she's named for A.G. Robinson, too, just because presuming she's named for Jackie Robinson seems a little weird -- "We put the black captain on the ship named after a black athletics pioneer." Plus, I have a hard time picturing Starfleet naming ships of the line after professional athletes, even ones who break racial boundaries.
Perhaps it's named after all of these Robinsons? Otherwise, wouldn't the full name be included (i.e. USS A.G. Robinson)?

It's like the USS Roosevelt from Wolf 359. Was it FDR or Teddy? Could be both.
