What's the difference between Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, and Starship?

Why
: Every time my brother hears "We Built This City," he calls to tell me that it was my favorite song when I was little. "No, no," he says, "You didn't just like it. You loved it." I have seen a Betamax tape of little me dancing around to it...

But I digress. What's the diff?

Answer: A short list of line-ups and singles:

Jefferson Airplane (1965-72, 1985-) - Grace Slick, Marty Balin, Jorma Kaukonen, Paul Kantner, Jack Casady, Spencer Dryden, Signe Toly Anderson, Bob Harvey, Jerry Peloquin, Skip Spence, Joey Covington, Papa John Creach, John Barbata, David Freiberg
Jefferson Starship (1974-84, 1992-) - Grace Slick, Paul Kantner, Jerry Garcia, Jack Casady, Joey Covington, David Crosby, David Freiberg, Mickey Hart, Peter Kaukonen, Bill Kreutzmann, Graham Nash, Harvey Brooks, Phill Sawyer, Craig Chaquico, Johnny Barbata, Papa John Creach - and all of these people
  • "Miracles" (1975)
  • "With Your Love" (1976)
  • "Jane" (1979)
In June 1984, Paul Kantner, the last remaining founding member of Jefferson Airplane, left Jefferson Starship, and then took legal action over the Jefferson Starship name against his former bandmates. Kantner settled out of court and signed an agreement that neither party would use the names "Jefferson" or "Airplane" unless all members of Jefferson Airplane, Inc. agreed to it (Bill Thompson, Paul Kantner, Grace Slick, Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady). The band briefly changed its name to "Starship Jefferson" while legal proceedings occurred, but ultimately the name was reduced to simply "Starship."

Starship (1984-1990) - Grace Slick, Mickey Thomas, Craig Chaquico, Brett Bloomfield, Mark Morgan, Kenny Stayripolous, Christina Marie Saxton, Melisa Kary
There is also a Jefferson Starship - The Next Generation. Who cares.

This is what Grace Slick looks like, btw.
