Re: Anyone Like the "Inaccurate" Book Cover art from the 1980's?

The ship is named Excalibur. Excalibur was King Arthur's sword. So the sword with the Starfleet insignia is a symbolic representation of the ship. I think that's self-evident. Sure, maybe there could be some resonance intended with Calhoun's warrior past, but it's still symbolic.
