# 1 Starship names
08-20-2010, 01:34 AM
I was putting together a small list for personal use (in case i got writers block) as far as possible starship names. I have seen complaints about silly names in game. If i get bored, i tend to add more, just meandering through Roman names, Native American, Samurai, Locations, adverbs, and notable people in society. Would anyone be interested in my list if I posted it?

Since I am not using them, maybe someone else can find the one that stands out to them. hope it helps.

I always liked USS Warpath.

Kudos to Cyrptic on its Ship/Character name generator.

Yep, I class by type. I use ancient scientists for well Science, Ancient gods and Titans for my cruisers and ancient warriors for my tactical. Well you've got to fly the Aggememnon...

I dont have a naming convention as such by tier - there are only 5 tiers!
