‘Star Trek’ street names

Release of the “Star Trek” movie reminds me that several of our cities have names taken from Trek spacecraft, either from the original TV series or the spinoffs.

Rancho Cucamonga has an Enterprise Street, Upland has Enterprise and Excelsior drives — are those faster than warp drive? — and Pomona has an Enterprise Place and a Voyager Street. Yes, it’s possible the Rancho street is simply named for the idea of enterprise, but the Upland and Pomona names are clearly from the series.

I guess any source for street names is acceptable in a (Vulcan nerve) pinch.

(Belated thanks to reader Derek Deason for informing me of the Pomona names quite some time ago.)
