Not buyin' it. Everything else was pretty well nailed. Arturis did his research well. And anyone who'd been to the Academy, let alone made it to the command ranks, would know enough Starfleet history to know the name of the first Starfleet ship. Between Chakotay, Janeway, Tuvok,The Doctor, Harry, and/or Seven, at least one of them would go, "Hang on -- wasn't NX-01 named Enterprise?" It's continuity fail, no matter how much one tries to rationalize it (along with so many other aspects of the series of same name).As for the Dauntless NX-01-A, that ship being an alien ruse wasn't carrying an official Federation registry so it isn't canon breaking. I see it as the alien behind it just wasn't knowledgeable enough to get it right, and the Voyager crew had too much on their minds at the time to notice a funky registry.
