^Wow, that's very interesting. It goes against what fans have tended to assume for decades.
Well, most fans. I've been an advocate of this position for awhile now. And the whole "Starfleet adopted the Enterprise insignia to honor the ship" around the time of TMP has nver sat well with me, either.
From the date, he must've been referring to the Exeter insignia in "The Omega Glory" -- which makes me wonder why he didn't put the kibosh on the Constellation insignia in "The Doomsday Machine" months earlier.
I'm sure he had to be a pretty busy guy. Must've just gotten past him before he could do anything about it.

See post #29. there is some discussion further down the thread speculating on what particular episode might have prompted Justman's memo.
