USS Unyielding Dawn- Beginner ship
USS Unyielding Day- NX Class light Escort
USS Unyielding Dusk- Lt. Commander Escort

I couldn't come up with any unique names, so I just went with Unyielding [Time of day]

Then I get to the Tier 5+ ships and they all turn out to be Yamato, Mushashi, and Shinano
I kept glancing at your avatar as I read this. I kept thinking, "He has to have Starblazers theme" and then low and behold your T5 did just that.

Oddly enough, I LOVED my Stargazer/Cheyenne-Class. I opted for U.S.S. Crazy Horse, in keeping with the "Famous historical generals" motif. I've gotten more compliments on that ship than any other I've had before or since. I only wish we could get a Brass Plaque with a brief bio that we could display on our bridge.

My Eng has ships named for Women of note, explorers, and warriors. Hypathia, Barbara Hillary, Xenobia, Jeanne d'Arc, Mae Jemison...
My original character, a Tac, had Thor based names...
My Sci has astronomers and astrophysicist names Ulugh Beg, Edwin Hubble, Tycho Brahe....

I generally just leave it at whatever the game auto-gave me. However I did rename a couple
Nova Class: USS Feynman
Intrepid Class: USS Edison (actually this one was auto-given, but it was well suited)
Intrepid Retrofit (and now also Refit): USS Wright (another auto-given that I liked)

While I was RA I goofed off with my ship names as I didn't really like any of the free ships available to me. So I had the USS Nagasaki & the USS Chernobyl.

USS A Fortiori (Latin for "argument from stronger reason)
IKS [Insert Famous Canon Klingon Name] (Because I don't care.

Each of my characters follows a different theme for naming ships. Among them are characters who's themes are names from:

Macross 7
Megaman (I didn't get as far into theme since I ended up using the same ship)
Characters from Anne McCaffrey's books
Ranma
Cardcaptor Sakura (I.K.S. K'ero - I felt so clever)
Sora no Otoshimono
