so lets assume it is the Universe Leader and when somebody has a better suggestion we can always change it...

Pieter... with this photo there is another of UNIVERSE COMMANDER but the position of aft lifeboat is different.

By uplifting the shadows at the nose I found that thre is indeed the universe prefix and the second name is not quite readable, but has less digits than UNIVERSE, so if it is the small version of the ship it is most likley the LEADER, if it is the larger version, it could be either Apollo or Daphne, but my money would be on the Leader.
