My main Sci officer has a myriad of ships all named after my favorite bands: Nightwish, Kamelot, Dragonforce, Epica, Xandria, After Forever. She's currently flying the Defiant Class U.S.S. Midnattsol.

After I picked up one of the Mirror Universe cruisers, I renamed my engineer to be based off a mirror universe villain from one of my Foundry missions. His ship is the I.S.S. Phaeton, named after the villain from ExoSquad.

My Tac is named Arya Stark, so it seems fitting she should captain the U.S.S. Winterfell.

Forum Logic dictates that if the devs don't do what a poster wants, they therefor actively hate what that poster is advocating for.

Because I'm proud of where I live.

I do have a science alt who's ships are all named after United States Department of Energy National Laboratories.

PS: My show is actually at 0200 GMT these days. I really need to dig up the PSD for that signature and redo it.

U.S.S. Hypatia

Hypatia was a female Greek scholar, mathematician, astronomer and philosopher at the Library of Alexandria. She was murdered by a christian mob because she publicly refused to be baptized (so, of course, she was accused of witchcraft).

Reminds me (and hopefully everyone) of how harmful any religion is to civilization.

My fed ship is the USS Jude, aptly named for the patron saint of lost causes. It's a 150 year old rickety deathtrap of a cruiser. Understaffed, under-supplied, and under-repaired.

The reason is because its crewed by the other end of the spectrum of Starfleet officers. The screw-ups, malcontents, and others who's only option is to serve on the Jude, or get tossed out of Starfleet.

Not murderers or any sort of hardened criminals, but those officers who have just pissed off the wrong people in the course of their career. Most range from mildly eccentric to barking mad, including their captain.

Ginzuishou (Long Range Science Vessel Retrofit) - Tribute to Sailor Moon.
Radiant (Patrol Escort) - Continuing a line of shining/shimmering style names.
Fortitude (Odyssey Star Cruiser) - Sort of continues a line of names involving forts.
Hephaestus (Exploration Cruiser Retrofit) - For a Vulcan engineer. Get it? Vulcan engineer.
Opal Sea (Odyssey Star Cruiser) - Just sounded good for a Betazoid doctor.
Firebrand (Odyssey Star Cruiser) - Continuing a line of patriotic/revolutionary names, for a Bajoran.

Song of Horror (Kar'Fi Battle Carrier) - Continues a line of "Song of..." ships, including Song of Ire, Song of Malice, etc. For an Orion scientist.
Phantom Flare (Qin Heavy Raptor) - A stealthy blaster.
Tankertoy (Bortas Heavy Battle Cruiser) - A haven for a joined Trill engineer.

For most of my toons I take inspiration from one of my favorite sci fi anime growing up. Mobile Suit Gundam

For my Sci toon I picked a name that fit for a sci ship U.S.S. Ptolemaios named after
Claudius Ptolemy(Klaudios Ptolemaios) a greek mathematician, astronomer, geographer, astrologer. also happens to be the name of the carrier ship in 00 gundam

Eng toon U.S.S Ra Cailum ( all his ships are from EFF side)

Klingon toon I.K.S. Musai (all his are from the Zeon, neo zeon side )

so i tend to do a theme per toon .

Manuel Belgrano for my main (always rename the new main to this, using the pennant of the first ship i had plus the A/B/C and so), for both the Argentinian patriot and the cruiser that was sunk in the Malvinas war, also it goes with the naming rules of the Armada Argentina.
Zarate for my main shuttle because it is the name of my city and because it also goes with the naming rules of the ARA (small combat capable ships are named after cities with big river ports).
The other ships have names according the the naming rules of the ARA, fitting for their tier, and my Oddie is called "25 de Mayo", as the ARA carrier that was decomissioned in 2000.
Yuxtapuestoelmono, not "Lmrt"

3 lvl 50s

Exeider - Eng - U.S.S. Ralph Reuss III - named after my dad, who died like 2 months before the game came out.

Traxx - Sci - U.S.S. Interpid-X - Loved the intrepid refit, got a good strong set of consoles, and since the Galaxy - X is named so because of it's special ability, I decided to name mine with an X for the same reason

Damar - Tac - U.S.S. WhiteStar - I have a cardy captain, I named it the White Star because if you take a MVAM Escort and use the right settings on the nacelles/pylons and hull, you can make it look like the WhiteStar from Babylon 5.

USS Adventure, a name originally related to early 18th century shipping and one that has stuck with me for at least some 25 odd years (if not longer)!
