It's kinda hard to keep ship names straight with 4 toons, but,...eh.

Current commands:
Engineer: Nassau recalls the US Navy ships which bore the name Nassau (CVE 16/LHA 4);
Tactical: Soyuz harkens back to the old assault frigates of the 2270s;
Science 1: Thunder Bay, after the Canadian city at the head of Lake Superior;
Science 2: Haleakala, "House of the Sun", for a Hawaiian volcano. Also recalls the ammunition ship USS Haleakala (AE 25).
