So imagine my surprise when, while reading an article about Sherlock/ Star Trek connections I discovered that there was a star ship named after Sherlock Holmes. Its name appears on a view screen during an episode of TNG: "Conspiracy". I've seen the episode, but never noticed this, so I immediately hunted up a screen shot and, sure enough, there it is. You have to kind of squint to make it out, so kudos to whoever was sharp-eyed enough to notice it originally, but it is there: the USS Sherlock Holmes NCC 221B. How cool/ nerdy is that?
