For now, I've only been going with the two names for my two primary characters.

USS Andromeda was picked before I knew about the paint patterning for ship design. Ironically, I didn't go with that scheme for it. The name is chosen for the Andromeda Galaxy, not 'Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda'. Essentially, I style that my character is an android from planet Mudd. And those androids were from the Andromeda Galaxy.

The other is the USS Ars Metallica, for a character in a 'starfleet-less' story I was writing in the ST universe. I figured there was plenty of opportunity to tell a ship story about a crew and not have them be 'THE MAN' as it were. The Ars Metallica will be crewed by characters from that story.
