Businessman Elon Musk announced in his Twitter about the change of the name of the BFR spacecraft. Now the ship has received the name “Starship” (Starship). With the exception of this, so far the businessman’s plans for the flight program have not changed.
The starship will launch a Super Heavy rocket into orbit, after which it will detach from the spacecraft. It is assumed that the unit will be able to deliver about 100 tons of cargo to Mars.
Users noted that the “starship” can not be called such until it makes a flight to other systems. Musk replied that future ship versions would be designed for such trips.

Unless this "starship" is sent on a mission to another star system it can't be called a starship

Also the other day, SpaceX received permission to launch about 12,000 satellites that will be needed to fully cover the Earth with Internet.
