...you buy a ship just for a console, completely intending to destroy it once you remove the desired item, and it gets randomly named "U.S.S. Challenger."
This happens? I can only recall getting the names of locations in the default ship names.
This is kind of strange, since, really, it seems like Challenger is still such a scab on the American psyche that it's almost taboo to name a ship that. I'm not sure on it, but it seems like it's more acceptable to name a ship Columbia than Challenger.
