Removed info Edit
I removed the following bgnotes:
- The novelization of Star Trek states that Iowa's easy accessability to Mississippi River shipping lanes was a key factor in Starfleet's decision to build the USS Enterprise there - suggesting that, on at least some Federation worlds, maritime commerce is still very much a fact of life.
- Though there was never any further information on screen, it is possible that the Federation Naval Patrol is something like the U.S. Coast Guard, or perhaps an offshoot of the Royal Navy or United States Navy.
the first because its connection to the topic at hand is flimsy at best, and the second for being speculation. -Angry Future Romulan 18:53, November 22, 2010 (UTC)
