Unknown vessel off my starboard bow this is US Navy warship Yankee Bravo, I suggest you adjust your heading 15 degrees to port to avoid collision.

Yankee Bravo, negative, I suggest you adjust your course 15 degrees to starboard to avoid collision.

Unknown vessel this is Yankee Bravo, I am a large US warship and suggest that you adjust your heading immediately 15 degrees to port to avoid collision.

This is the USS Enterprise! I suggest you adjust your heading immediately to avoid collision.

This is the Harbour light house, your call Enterprise.
It was actually on the East Coast, and was directed at a Canadian lighthouse. I watched a lecture about accepting changes in approaches to traditional ways of thinking and the above was related by the Commandant of the Marine Corps, and he was reading from a transcript, he said. In His, slightly longer version, the US aircraft carrier actualy threatened to attack the "unknown ship".
