Good names for Caitian Carriers
The usual Starfleet ships are human ships, because Earth donated its Starfleet to the Federation when it was founded. The Andorians, the Vulcans, and obviously also the Caitans kept their own fleets, although they are probably smaller than Starfleet.
Now, with the multiple wars going on in this existential crisis era, Starfleet is commissioning non-human-built ships, thus breaking a tradition that never really made sense for a Federation of equal species anyway. Obviously, this should also be reflected in the ships' names. While I can see why a human ship would be named USS Enterprise, USS Defiant, USS Voyager or USS Tsiolkovsky, a Caitian ship clearly would have to have a Caitian name.
Looking at Memory Beta
, we can see two obvious names:
- Dynkorra M'relle, because naming a ship after a politician is not unheard of (although we haven't seen that in StarTrek yet). By extension, the prename "Dynkorra" might have a mythological reference for Caitians,
- S'rrel, who was the first Caitian to serve in Starfleet and who later became an admiral.
What else comes to your mind as possible Caitian Carrier ship names?
