I've been guilty of calling 2 ships USS Galactica and USS Serenity when I started playing this game, only to find out that there are tons of others using those names Then I went to call ships after famous bassguitars, named my intrepid after voyager's voyage home (USS Homewards) and I'm sure it's not hard guessing what species my captain of the USS Noble Greed is (currently captaining the USS Discovery tho).
I think the fun comes from using ship names that might mean something to the individual or as an inside joke. My first character all had ships that made reference to the band Genesis -- both musicians in the band and songs. It was enjoyable to fly around in the USS Gabriel or USS Salmacis because I figured no one else would be doing that.
Lol, that's great. I might do something similair with the band Steely Dan. I always name my runabouts USS Alembic Sounds pretty cool, and it's named after something I'd like to have in the future as much as my own runabout
Also had a science ship named USS Endorphine, what should've been an attempt at humour by my vulcan captain. At least, I think vulcans don't produce that vital substance, I mean they do have logic
