Re: Ships In "The Measure of a Man"

Memory Alpha has updated their image for this chart.

U.S.S. Hokule'a
The writer for the article states that this name is illegible.

U.S.S. Saratoga
* Another case of where the writer states that the name is illegible.

U.S.S. Da-Teplan
* A third case where the writer states the name is illegible.

U.S.S. Amber
* I disagree with the writer on this name. When I did the chart, I went through the name letter by letter, and compared each letter to one like it found elsewhere on the chart. In this example, if the name was Aries, then the final letter would look like the first letter in Saratoga or Sector. It doesn't; I then compared it to other letters and came to a determination that it was a R. From there, knowing that the first letter was an A and the last letter was a R, it was a process of filling in the rest.
