do you have nothing better to do then attempt to insult people? do you not have good enough internet connection to go play the game and stop being annoying.

Oh and I forgot to add, I also have a USS Normandy in my ship inventory and I have never played Mass Effect. You may not of heard, but there was this big war in Europe in the 1940's and one of the biggest events that happened during this war (we refer to it as "World War II") was this huge invasion called Operation: Overlord. The site of the invasion was this place in France called Normandy.

/History lesson.

Hm. That was a bit harsher than I usually deal. Generally I keep it tame enough so where the only ones insulted are the ones who want to be. That was a deserved infraction, to say the least.

Man, I'm turning into an actual troll. Must've been a transporter accident...

Same can be said for any name.

U.S.S. Chester.
People think I'm british for naming my ship that. Starting any and every conversation with "Hi U from UK?". (minus the capital letters and the ? of course)
I named it after my boyfriend.

Yeah, I thought about running USS Normandy, then I saw way too many people with it. Couldn't figure out why for the life of me...

I figure not many people will use USS Ikrit or USS Mobius 1, but I have seen a few USS Midway's running around No USS Hypernova's, but USS Supernova and USS Black Hole are used quite a bit...one of my characters has the life cycle of a (very massive) star for each escort. I still like my star cruiser, USS Yeti Fits the ship, and it's one of my nicknames (due to my height, love of winter, and large feet (like Bigfoot)). And I have seen a USS MacGyver, which is another of my ship names. I still love USS Redemption and USS Stalwart quite a bit, maybe just because I'm a Star Wars fan/gamer in disguise I know if I make another Fed character (aka if I am out of my mind, 5 Feds already) I'll go with either ships from Star Wars: TIE Fighter or for different TIE Fighter names (USS Fighter, Bomber, Interceptor, Phantom, Avenger, Defender)

Well, unless there are a number of people in my town playing the game, I think my ship's name is pretty unique.

Do some history... H.M.S. Enterprize is a famous ship of the Royal Navy. Just because you americans can't spell correctly is not our fault!

He's asking a legitimate question, and you can't take him seriously? I don't see him complaining about anything.

This will only work, of course, if I am named Fuhrer.
