Named after Admiral Horatio Shetland and hero of the Battle of Sol during the 4th Intergalactic War. The Shetland is the vessel used by Admiral of the Fleet McElligott, thus making the USS Shetland the Flagship of the United Stars Navy. Much to the dismay of Admiral McElligott, the Captain of the Shetland and her crew, almost no one knows that. Almost everyone believes it is the USS Devastator. Every school kid knows about Admiral Stahl and the Devi. Hardly anyone, not even Navy personnel knows it is the Shetland.
