Darpa Trek Codename

Did you know that the US Navy, the US Airforce and NASA have all studied the USS Enterprise NCC 1701's bridge as a futuristic model for a hightech command centre? In 1994 DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Project Administration contacted Star Trek designer Herman Zimmerman and asked him to help them create an experimental control center based on the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 bridge. This project was deemed of such importance it was given a really cool codename.

Which Trek Codename did they use for the Enterprise Darpa project?

1) Was it called Trekbreaker?
2) Starbreaker?
3) Defensebreaker?
4) Warbreaker?
5) Shieldbreaker?
6) or Minebreaker?

Heres TOS Enterprise bridge on full display at Star Treks: The Exhibition at Detroits Science Center. Isn't it a thing of beauty?

Live long and prosper trekkers and trekkies!

Positive or not I discovered Warbreaker during a trek watch.

I totally guessed Trekwatch. Surprised it was named Warbreaker. I would pay $100 an hour to sit in that bridge.

I guess Trekwatch sounds catchy. If only I lived near Detroit's Science Center the USS Enterprise's NCC 1701 bridge would be NO 1 on my 'beamover' wish list. Sitting in Captain Kirks chair has got to be an experience just out of this world.
