My main toon's flagship (from which I have derived my PWE handle) is the Odyssey-class USS Pax Federatica, a pseudo-Latin play on Pax Britannica, Pax Romana etc. It basically means "peace secured by the Federation".

A few of my ship names are decidedly tongue-in-cheek: an Atrox carrier named USS Kitty Hawk (after the site of the Wright Brothers' first airplane flight), a Borgified Mirror science vessel called ISS Borgata (after a hotel in Las Vegas) and a Chimera destroyer named USS Condor (an ugly-@$$ bird, named for another ugly-@$$ bird).

Two are named for Mars rovers: a Vesta named USS Pathfinder and a Delta Flyer named USS Curiosity.

I also have a Polaris science vessel named USS North Star, and another Mirror science vessel named ISS Panem (after the evil government of the Hunger Games series).
