    • The Yamato
      This is a reference to the 70s anime series Space Battleship Yamato, more popularly known as Star Blazers outside of Japan. In the anime series, the Yamato, the pride of the Japanese Navy, is destroyed in World War II, then resurrected and turned into a "space battleship" to journey to a far away system in a quest to save humanity. There would ultimately be five story arcs/seasons, and the Yamato would be destroyed and rebuilt and destroyed again. Here the Yamato is the sister ship of the Enterprise.
