So not only are you using the most cliche ship name possible since the release of Mass Effect, you so unoriginal that you couldn't even come up with it on your own?
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.
You people do know that Star Trek and most other sci fi pretty much did not invent those ship names in the first place right? :p
Defiant, Enterprise, Prometheus, Monitor, Normandy, Voyager, all those names pretty much existed as names of warships long before Star Trek or Sci-Fi was even concieved of. :p
Same can be said for any name.
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)
