I have a long time love of submarines. It is as close as we will get to our notion of what a starship is; a large vessel moving through an alien environment (the ocean). And I am a Canadian citizen who served for a time in the Canadian Armed Forces... so, a "pinup board" on Canadian submarines. Maybe not as impressive as the Russian/Soviet Navy or the American Navy's submarines, but it is still my countries efforts in that direction.

HMCS Ojibwa at sea in 1965. I heard of a number of stories about Canadian Oberon class boats being mistaken for Soviet Foxtrot class boats by the US Navy and Coast Guard. The visual profile of the two classes are very similar and the Soviet boats always had the red star on the conning tower. Canadian boats have the red Canadian Maple Leaf on the conning tower. So, of course they would cause the US sailors who spotted them to have a heart attack.
