Ten random things: April 9

Ten Star Trek spaceships:

  1. SS Botany Bay (TOS, "Space Seed"; Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)
  2. Phoenix (Star Trek: First Contact)
  3. Sphere 878 (VOY, "Unimatrix Zero, Part II")
  4. Vetar (TNG, "Journey's End" and "Preemptive Strike"; VOY, "Caretaker")
  5. Sepulo (DS9, "The Nagus")
  6. SS Tsiolkovsky (TNG, "The Naked Now")
  7. USS Wellington (TNG, "Ensign Ro," "11001001," and "Remember Me")
  8. IKS Gr'oth (DS9, "Trials and Tribble-ations)
  9. IRW Genorex (DS9, "Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges")
  10. ECS Fortunate (ENT, "Fortunate Son")

I was inspired to do this list because the Wikipedia entry for this date listed today as the anniversary of James Cook's descovery of Botany Bay in Australia. Further investigation, however, suggsts that the discovery took place on April 29. Other sources support the latter date, so I've edited the Wikipedia page appropriately. Too lazy to make another list, though.
