What's to move on from? The OP's question was answered. The fact that C.E. Evans
wants to say people have the right to make mistakes and call them "customs" is intriguing, and I was hoping to follow up on it.
So, why the Enterprise
and sometimes the Defiant
, but only once (that I recall) the Voyager
? DS9 was usually just "the station", which makes sense, because it's one of many and the characters were referencing the
station that was of primary interest to them. But would it ever be called the
Deep Space 9? Why or why not? Is Enterprise
a special name that demands the specific article? Why not just an Enterprise
? There were many of them, after all. Why would all
of them be the Enterprise
? Wouldn't that be confusing?
Maybe the Enterprise
is just Kirk's ship?
