So apparently the Prometheus, along with the Heliades, are a class of vessel and not specific ships. The word "the" is also not supposed to be used before "Prometheus".[1] So, how do we make that work?--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 08:42, December 24, 2013 (UTC)

Ship classes are often named after the first ship of the class. For example, the USS Nimitz is the first of the Nimitz-class aircraft carriers. So it's perfectly possible for the Prometheus to be both an individual ship and a ship class. From what we see in the film, the Prometheus is supposed to be the first of its kind, which would back this up.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 12:25, December 28, 2013 (UTC)
Oh great. Didn't know about that.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 19:23, December 28, 2013 (UTC)
