Wasn't the Drake Riker turned down the one the same one that was destroyed on Minos? I seem to recall that Rice took command because Riker turned it down. --Steve 19:40, 17 Jul 2004 (CEST)
Error in summary? Edit
In the episode "The Arsenal of Freedom", Lt. Yar states that Riker "turned down command of the Drake to take this assignment", which I assume is the XO position for the Enterprise. Does this not suggest that he was offered command BEFORE becoming the XO? If so, then this would differ from the current summary. User:184.108.40.206 18:09, 14 December 2006
Named after Edit
Is there a citation for the claim that it was named after Sir Francis Drake? Or is it equally likely that it was named after any of the myriad astronomers, pilots, or the type of dragon also named "drake"?--Asleep.in.thered 02:45, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
