"Lowell" named for the observatory is probably closer to the mark - or possibly even some inside reference from ILM.
I'm sorry, but there does appear to be an 'F' there - right in front of the 'L'.

USS MAYFLOWER maybe?




Here are some previous USS MAYFLOWER references from DS9:



The USS Mayflower was a Federation starship in operation during the late 24th century.
During the early 2370s, Deep Space 9 would occasionally receive and store cargo containers in its cargo bay that originated from the Mayflower. (DS9: "Family Business", "Indiscretion", "Sons of Mogh", "Nor the Battle to the Strong", "Who Mourns for Morn?")
This ship's name was not mentioned on screen, however, graphics displaying its name appeared on several of said cargo containers in these episodes. These graphics later appeared in the second edition of the Star Trek Encyclopedia. This starship may have been named after the ship which ferried the Pilgrims to Massachusetts in 1621.http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/USS_Mayflower

Silly, silly fans.... it's a product placement ad for Lowe's Home Improvement stores. That ship definitely needs an extreme makeover.
