USS Republic - the idea, the book, political system, take your pick. It's effects on modern civilization is immense.
For me I chose the name based on the Ship in a novel I wrote to practice writing. In the story I selected the name to highlight one of the sub-plots of the story, the effects of the Dominion War on the Federation and her people.
Then they went and changed Canon on me
My crew is based on the characters in the story, varied to fit the timeline of course and the original inspiration for the Captain and ship was based on a character I played on the "USS Trafalgar" on a BBS Star Trek Game in the 90's (Sorry the name of the site escapes me but the stories were great).
