The vessel was probably built by the United Kingdom, judging by the "HMS" prefix and the name. This also makes a point that the United Kingdom still has a reigning monarch in the early 22nd century, however as per the current conventions, the position probably remains constitutionally limited.

Uncited noteEdit

The Lord Nelson was named in honor of Admiral Horatio Nelson, who led the Royal Navy to victory in the Battle of Trafalgar.

Although likely, I have removed the above uncited note as lacking a valid production source. --| TrekFan Open a channel 22:48, February 2, 2018 (UTC)

I think that's over eager. There's no other Lord Nelsons, It can only really (directly or indirectly) refer to that guy. The wording is a bit strong, but I think that under MA:COMMON, pointing out the apparent link through something like "The name of the ship appears to be a reference to Admiral Horatio Nelson." should be acceptable whether we've got a source or not. -- Capricorn (talk) 16:31, February 3, 2018 (UTC)

I hear what you're saying and to a certain extent I agree with you. I just thought that one of things we are strict on here is definite sources for information like this. The note as it is says it is definitely named for him (which is likely) but it's also possible it wasn't, the thing is we don't know for sure without a source. And adding "appears to be" or "is likely named for" just makes the note even worse as it sounds like speculation. --| TrekFan Open a channel 21:42, February 3, 2018 (UTC)
