Re: Members of the Federation.

I never mentioned "Magna Roma" by that name in Ex Machina, because that name comes only from Worlds of the Federation and The Captains' Honor, neither of which I consider a credible source. In fact, I deliberately contradicted The Captains' Honor's implausible backstory for that planet in ExM, describing planet 892-IV as "that planet populated by the descendants of Earth Romans seeded by the Preservers."

But yes, Worlds does apply the name "Magna Roma" to 892-IV, and also states that it's on the path to Federation membership. Evidently The Captains' Honor was following its lead. And TCH does say that one of the first ships to visit "Magna Roma" was named Enterprise.
