Each of my captains' ships have names specific for thier origins:

Adm. Malcolm Daniels' ship, the Rodger Young, is named for the WW2 Medal of Honor recipient who gave his life while advancing on a enemy machine gun nest that had ambushed his squad. Pvt. Young, although wounded, advanced on the enemies position and once within range, threw several grenades at the nest before being killed. His actions saved the lives of his fellow soldiers, as well as killing several enemy combatants. For his selfless act of valor, Pvt. Rodger Wilton Young was posthumously awarded the US Military's highest decoration, the Medal of Honor.

There's also a song written about him, detailing his heroic actions; "The Ballad of Rodger Young". My current ship, a [i]Sovereign-class[i] assault cruiser, and the sixth ship to carry to carry the name, bears a line from the song on it's dedication plaque, located on the bridge.

"...in every soldier's heart in all the Infantry
Shines the name, shines the name of Rodger Young."

My other captains' ship names are indicative of their individual origins:

Jenari D'ian, an Orion female, and cousin of the Orion Syndicate's leader, Melani D'ian, commands a Klingon ship named the Jade Princess, after her connection to Orion "royality".

D'elon, my Romulan (actually the alien species) Starfleet science officer's ships all take their names from Roman Emperors. Her first ship was the Augustus, and her current ship is named the Tiberius. I'm gonna see how far I can go in ship names with her.

My last captain is actually a homage to the great sci-fi movie Galaxy Quest. My captain's name is, of course Peter Quincey Taggart and his ship is named the Protector. I'm thinking about recruiting bridge officers and renaming and making them look like the other cast members from the movie. haha

USS Vaudeville - named for old school stage variety entertainment, mostly the comedy aspect. My first character was based completely on me, and my Boff's are all friends / family so naming the ship Vaudeville was a reference to the variety of entertaining personas. The last 3 digits of the registry represent my daughter's birthday.

Atrox carrier=NX-Graf Zeppelin. Graf Zeppelin was the first of a line of Yorktown class sized carriers that was made but never used in ww2 captured by the ussr and sunk on a anti-carrier exercise where she was bombarded by 26 1000 lb bombs and finally attained hull dmg to a torpedo sinking her.

Tholian Recluse Carrier=NX-Yorktown. Yorktown was the USN Fleet carriet in ww2 that was the staging area for some of the most important skirmishes and raids in the war(Dolittle raid anyone?)Big E was more decorated but Yorktown is still notable.

Chimera Heavy Destroyer=NX Prinz Eugen. She was the Bismarck's escort on the Bismarck's maiden voyage and assisted in the sinking of the UK BC hood

I named my Chimera "U.S.S. Bidwell's Ear" from a scene in "Almost Heroes".

The Doolittle raid was launched off of the Hornet, not the Yorktown.

My ships are named after eagles since I am quite fond of birds.

t1 - USS Osprey
t2 - USS Harpy (best bird ever since it eats monkeys and I hate monkeys)
t3 - USS Martial (2nd most awesome eagle)
t4 - probably USS Aquila as I think the Exploration Cruisers deserve such a cool name. Aquila is latin for a genus of eagles including the Golden eagle.
t5 - not sure what it should be. I don't really have any love for the sovereign so I might buy a expl. cruiser retrofit. Maybe call it USS Harpy II or something. Or do you have better ideas?
