------------------------------------------------------------------------ WE ARE NOT PERFECT, BUT THAT IMPERFECTIONS MAKE US UNIQUE...
heh... should've explained my own naming convention. All of Fin Hawkins ships are named after swords. As I mentioned before, his current ship is the USS Kusanagi, a kitbashed Carrier Escort (Artimage saucer, Thunderchild nacelles and hull, and Akira struts). It is named after one of the three Japanese regalia known as the "Grass Cutter Sword" (the other two being a mirror and a jewel). Other ships include the USS Xiphus Gladius (Exeter Class Cruiser), the USS Acinaces (Shi'kar Class) and USS Kaiser Blade (Multi Vector Escort).
Why swords? Well... I consider Tactical Officers to be the "Swords of Starfleet". If Starfleet needs people to stand up to Klingon Warriors the redshirts are first in line.
Already got an Engineer started as well. Her ships will be named after shields...
My main who's a science officer and has my name currently captains an RSV called the USS Gundere. Anime fans will recognize the term as it's associated with my forum avatar. I'm convinced that if the ship were a woman she'd blast him with her weapons for annoying her...
on my fed
USS Edward McDonnell -defiant class named after the frigate my dad served on in 1977-1980
USS Hyperion -sovereign class random name cryptic gave
USS Yamato -Mirror Vanguard class hybrid named after the Japanese battle ship of WWII
USS Sultan -Mirror sovereign class random name cryptic gave
USS Parthenon -Odyssey class wanted a name that had to do with Greece original idea was the Iliad the prequel to homers odyssey but every one was calling the odyssey that so picked Parthenon
USS Victoria -Cheyenne class Fleet heavy cruiser original name cryptic gave was Victorian i chopped off the N as i thought Victoria sounded better. later retconned it to be named after Queen Victoria. now with the fleet system i have this old ship back as USS Victoria AC-154. i just RP that Starfleet do tot he war has brought back some ships that where suppose to be scrapped. the AC-154 is just so i can have 2 ships named Victoria it stands for Attack Cruiser and the 154 is the last 3 digits of the registry number
USS Victoria-A -Galaxy/Venture Class hybrid when i became captain and had to get a new ship i liked Victoria enough i used it again and just RP'ed that the old one was decommissioned the Victoria A is also my main when i first came RA i actually still used the T4 Galaxy up until VA when i could use the oddy then got the retro so the galaxy class in one form or another has been my main ship for a little over a year
USS Alpha Flyer Delta type shuttle play on delta flyer
I don't recognize the USS Swordbreaker, but the name Exelion I remember from an old anime titled "Gunbuster", Hideki Anno's first work.... or one of his first. It's been so long I can barely remember...
And I think I have sighted a USS Gunbuster somewhere during my travels...
