There's really only one ship I use nowadays....

USS John Powell, NCC-94354-A, Excelsior class, named for the first man to launch an expedition down the Colorado river (he did so while missing an arm, might I add).

I have also used the name for my old T2 Constitution class, but I discharged it since it wasn't seeing much use.

I name my ships based on some of my favorite bands/performing artists. For instance, my first ship was the USS Asylum (named after the Asylum Street Spankers). I forgot what I named my previous ships aside from that, but my current ship is the USS Forsyth (named after Guy Forsyth). My next ship will be the USS Wiyo (from The Wiyos). After that, perhaps the Gussow (Adam Gussow), etc etc.. Until I get to my last ship, which will be MY band.. The USS Liar's Snake

My tac character is an alien whose race came from a different continuum. I only renamed my escort because the random name I got was Uganda - it just had a few troubling connotations in my mind. Wound up naming it the Anna Hunter, after a local preservationist, just to get something a little less suggestive.

But my heavy escort and tac escort have names taken from my characters' culture, the Tu'Narath and the Pharagos. A cookie to anyone who gets the references...

(Incidentally, the continuum his people came from was destroyed shortly after their departure. Someone had a thread asking what was on my dedication plaque. The plaque for the Pharagos reads 'Never ask a cosmologist for a worst-case scenario.')

IKS Cetanu (Hegh'ta BoP)
His race is a cousin of the Yautja. They worship the same gods.
He's a Tac. The name just kinda fit ;-)

USS Revenge (Assault Cruiser)
Actually, I got the idea from Edward Teach's ship, Queen Anne's Revenge, But...
In my Eng's story, his Grand-father (also a Starfleet Eng) died fighting the Borg at Wolf 359.

USS Miss Catalina IX (Captain's Yacht)
and
USS Catalina (Exploration Cruiser formerly used by my Miranda)
It's where I come from. The SS Catalina is a big part of our history and the Miss Catalina boats were a series of wooden speedboats who also have their history in my hometown. There's only been VI as far as I know, but I could only use 2 characters for numbers, so I said, "hey... it's the future..."
Hence the 9 ;-)

All of my main 'toon's ships are named after places I'm from, was stationed at, or currently live. 20 years in the navy gives me a lot of places to choose from. Except for my Delta Flyer. It's named after one of the submarines I was stationed on, USS Parche.

USS Atlantis - Multi Vector Advanced Escort
Main reason is my love affair with Star Gate and named after the flying city of Atlantis.

Speaking of Star Gate, does anyone know if the MMORPG, Star Gate Worlds, is still on the cards or did it get canned?
