So it could be a 1000 ships out there are named...USS Enterprize.
And there are.

I've counted at least 304 ships named EnterpriZe and various butcherings of the name, as well as countless Serenitys, Galacticas and Normandys whose captains are Kurks, Pikards, Adamas, Shepherds, etc. I admire the more obscure sci-fi and fantasy homages, but the obvious rips kinda grate on my nerves - like Starfleet has an identity crisis with some many ships and captains sharing the same name.
