All of mine are named after Meteorlogical Satellites except for Telstar which is named after the 1st satellite to transmit television, telephone, and fax thru space and SeaWiFS as that is just a sensor package.
Starting Ship - U.S.S. Telstar
Science Vessel - U.S.S. Envisat
Research - U.S.S. MetOp-A
Long Range - U.S.S. NOAA-1
Deep Space - U.S.S. Meteosat
Reconnaissance - U.S.S. SeaWiFS
note: SeaWifS is a NASA Scientific Instrument onboard the satellite OrbView-2 (aka: SeaStar) as such I might rename that to SeaStar.
