Some of the best ship names are found in the series Andromeda.

Andromeda Ascendant
Starry Wisdom
Pax Magellanic
Crimson Sunrise
Clarion's Call
Wrath of Achilles
Balance of Judgment
Resolution of Hector
Twelve Centuries
Renewed Valour
Million Voices

And now for the boring part: "Let me tell you about my character":
From my own ship names, the one I like most is probably "Unseen Academy". All my ship names for my Science Officer where allusions to the "Unseen University", but I ran out of good synonyms and also "had" to use names like "Hidden Wisdom" and now with my Recon "Unseen Universe".

For my Tactical, I used location names from places in Germany I knew. Not sure if any of them sound good too the English speaker. (Nadorst, Oldenburg, Aurich, Wechloy, Kreyenbrück, Osternburg)

For my Engineer, I setttled for names of scientists that were part of the Manhatten project. I try to stay obscure there, though the first ships name, "Compton" might sound familiar.

My Klingon Engineer's ship is called "Pride of Johan". The last ship still posessed by his house, after it was nearly ruined during the time of his father and the Dominion War...

Complete agree about the Andromeda names.

I alternate between two ships. The Tactical Escort Refit named USS Crimson Sunrise, The second is a Assault Cruiser the USS Midian Breach.

I still also have a Galaxy Class starship that I don't use anymore. Named that one USS Eric Hartmann, after the WWII Ace of all Aces, Eric Hartmann who score 358 confirmed kills.

Bravo, great job being ignorant of the forum rules and posting in a 2 year old thread. Start a new thread if you want to talk about starship names. People who necro ancient threads should suffer a 24 hour ban so they get the message.

U.S.S. Avon
U.S.S. Night Hawk

Those are the two names I use for my two ships.


EDIT: Just noticed this thread is old as... Oh well :L

Holy two year old thread Batman! This thing is ancient and moldy!

But because this bares mentioning, there was a Captain Marty McFly in the U.S.S. Delorean the other day.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

My Chel Grett, which I just got over the weekend, is named Byzantium, only because I was just getting it, while watching a Doctor Who episode, and the Crash of the Byzantium (which was covered in a later episode) was mentioned in passing, so there we are. One USS Byzantium.

I always wanted to name a ship the U.S.S. Queen Anne's Revenge but it doesn't fit.

More after the Flogging Molly version of the song than the actual ship. Since I couldn't use that, I settled with U.S.S. Brixton after the Clash song "Guns of Brixton."

It's a thing that I do.
