Named for Doctor Wilder Penfield, a Canadian surgeon who pioneered numerous neurosurgical techniques, including advanced treatments for epilepsy and mapping of the sensory and motor cortices of the brain, as well as the brain's connections to other parts of the body. Many of his techniques and maps remained in use almost a century later with few or no alterations.

Swigert (NCC-1707/13)
Named for Apollo 13 astronaut Jack Swigert, who was assigned to that ill-fated mission mere days prior to launch to replace another astronaut suspected to have an illness.

Delgado (NCC-1707/9)
Named for Canadian maritime archaeologist, explorer and author James Delgado, who spent decades exploring shipwrecks and other archaeological sites around the world and served as director of the Vancouver Maritime Museum for 15 years.
