Re: Enterprise NCC-01

I also like the prefix UFS for Federation military vessels. I'm just guessing that the reason they use USS is because the show started so long ago, and viewers at that time would be confused if a ship had anything other than a USS prefix - which is what they expected to see.

If Abrams Trek was the only Trek that ever existed, and it really was starting from scratch right now, they probably would use UFS.
