(kitbashed Mirror recon science)

: Another tongue-in-cheek name (this time referring to it being a Caitian carrier, which I've custom-built for The Cure STF) ostensibly after the place in North Carolina where the Wright brothers flew the first airplane.
(Polaris recon science)
: A throwback to my roleplaying days (years before the name was used for a 22nd-century freighter in ENT). Making it a Polaris-class was a no-brainer, as Polaris is, of course, another name for the northern star.
: The name of my newest ship refers to both the
from VOY and one of the first Mars rovers.
: My flagship's name (which in turn inspired my PWE handle) is a play on
