DJ Kei, in MMO Radio, flies the U.S.S. Xee-Nisu
The origin of this name involves a friend and fleet member, who's best friend had passed away a couple years ago. Her nickname was Xee, and her main character was named Nisu. So, in honor of her, I have named his Ambassador-class retrofit, the Xee-Nisu.

Nilara Keil flies the U.S.S. Mercury 7
This ship was named in honor of America's first Astronauts in the Mercury Program, dubbed the "Mercury 7"
Alan B. Shepard - spacedraft "Freedom 7" - May 5, 1961
Virgil I. "Gus" Grissom - spacecraft "Liberty Bell 7" - July 21, 1961
John H. Glenn - spacecraft "Friendship 7" - February 20, 1962
Donald K. "Deke" Slayton - spacecraft "Delta 7" grounded due to heart condition
Malcolm Scott Carpenter - spacecraft "Aurora 7" - May 24, 1962
Walter M. "Wally" Scherra - spacecraft "Sigma 7" - October 3, 1962
Leroy Gordon "Gordo" Cooper - spacecraft "Faith 7" - May 15, 1963

Reiko flies the U.S.S. Endeavour
The naming scheme of her ships follow the lineage of the US Space Shuttles
U.S.S. Columbia
U.S.S. Challenger
U.S.S. Discovery
U.S.S. Atlantis
U.S.S. Endeavour
I also named the NX I claimed for the grappler as the U.S.S. Enterprize, just to give it a name. Considering it never flew, it fit with the shuttles as the original Enterprise never flew.

Cameron flies the U.S.S. Phoenicia
the lineage of his craft all originate from the game series Descent: Freespace
U.S.S. Galatea
U.S.S. Bastion
U.S.S. Krios
U.S.S. Aquitaine
U.S.S. Psamtik
the Phoenicia is the only vessel you don't actually serve on. An NPC warship, nearly destroyed by the Shivan Juggernaut "Sathanas"

Himeko flying the U.S.S. Medusa also followed Freespace, instead of warships, she uses Bomber-classes
U.S.S. Valkyrie (interceptor, not bomber, but could carry a heavy warhead)
U.S.S. Athena
U.S.S. Medusa (name retained via retrofit-class)
U.S.S. Ursa
U.S.S. Zeus
U.S.S. Artemis

Luna flies an elongated Star Cruiser, named U.S.S. Longcat
yeah... she's Caitian

all other names are fairly random, or Klingon translations of things like "black raptor"
