The U.S.S. Kawanee. I've used this name since my Starfleet battles days, into my LUG RP games and finally I used it for an online Star Trek Simm.

The name is a play on the Kiwanis native american indian tribe. It was the name of the street I lived on when I first started RP'ing Star Trek. I thought it was a pretty cool name and stuck with it over the years.

USS Thunderchild (yes, I know it was a real ship at the start of First Contact), is the ironclad from War of the Worlds.

First two ships were books.
Third ship was named after a Simpsons episode.
Exeter was named after a Ship of The Line vessel which sailed for the British Navy.
My next ship will be called "Memory Leak" in honor of the one this game has.

USS Ocelot:
I thought naming the ship after the ocelot, a rather small but yet agile predator, was a good way of expressing how I felt while piloting my little Miranda. It also was a name I had not seen before.

USS Balaclava:
Remember the DS9 episode "Sacrifice of Angels"? How, on the bridge of the Defiant, O'Brien and Bashir recited the 3rd stanza from "The Charge of the Light Brigade" by Alfred Tennyson? That was one of my favorite moments of the entire show. The events that are described in the poem took place near the town of Balaclava in the Ukraine. So it was meant to be an inside joke for Trekkies.

USS Olympic:
Inspired by recent events I could not resist to pick this name for my heavy cruiser.
The dedication plaque reads: "Altius, Citius, Fortius“ And btw: Go Germany

USS Galatea:
My next ship will bear this name. Honestly, I first heared this name when I played "Conflict: Freespace" 12 years ago, when I was still a child. However I did some research on it and liked it for its meaning in greek mythology and seafare. Galatea is also one of Neptunes moons.

Hey, I named my Constitution that due to the "yeah I wanna get stationed on THAT ship" joke

My Heavy Escort is nmed USS Leeroy Jenkins
Its less just restarting the meme, or making fun of anything more than the lack of random group teamwork I have the disfortune of seeing all the time and partly due to the lack of ANY kind of support I recieve in said groups.
Add to that that the Heavy Escort's job in groups seem to be run in, get a strategic location, go boom, repeat.
