I remember my reaction to seeing the Reliant
in TWOK and hearing Chekov's log...
'Starship log, stardate 8130.4. Log entry by First Officer Pavel Chekov. Starship Reliant on orbital approach to Ceti Alpha VI, in connection with Project Genesis. We are continuing our search for a lifeless planet to satisfy the requirements of a test site for the Genesis Experiment. So far no success.'
"WHAT'S HE SAYING? THAT'S NOT A STARSHIP!!!!!"
I guess my universe of understanding expanded.
