Background information Edit
The name of this ship was mentioned in a list of ships that were launched from Earth, with destinations in or near to the Ficus sector, between the years 2123 and 2190. This list was displayed on Jean-Luc Picard's desk monitor in his ready room aboard the USS Enterprise-D. A legible version of the okudagram first appeared in the reference book, Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Continuing Mission. The list became legible to viewers with the remastered episode. For the remastered version of the graphic, the destination of the mission was altered from Alderaan to Aldebaran.
It was one of two ships with the HMS prefix on the list, the other being the HMS Lord Nelson. Named after several British capital ships called HMS New Zealand, themselves named after the islands of New Zealand.
