My primary toon is named after a Civil War confederate general, so I mostly kept the names along those lines. His tac escort retrofit is the Gatling, the Chimera the Merrimac, my fleet tac escort the Robert E. Lee , my Delta the Fort Sumter, and my Captain's Yacht the HL Hunley (named for the first submarine ever used in naval warfare.) One exception is the Jem attack ship, which I named the Ian Gillan, for a reason no one's figured out yet. I meant it to be and "inside joke," but apparently it's too inside. Ian was the lead singer for Deep Purple. Get it?
