The Kelvin was also the U.S.S. Iowa for quite a while. That was to justify "Iowa" as Kirk's birthplace.

I thought that was cute.
Cute. But incredibly contrived to the point of being cringe inducing.

What if a kid was born on the starship Bonhomme Richard? Would he (we) say he was from Bonhomme Richard? Or maybe he'd say he's from, the Bonhomme Richard? Does that make Kirk from Kelvin? Or from the Kelvin? Of course this dance has already been done to death on these boards. An oldie but a goodie.
