My Hegh's name is just a play on words I.K.S. Tig ol Bitties and
my brel is actually named I.K.S. Colonel Klink and thats an Idea
from a post on the forums that "Klink" is a deragutory form of Klingon which IMO is not.

LOL I named my light cruiser something amusing awhile back.

Needless to say a week passed and then I logged back in to find my ships name had been changed to BADNAME 3421526

Opening a lockbox is like using a public restroom when u gotta poo.
You are just hoping nobody blew on the seat or that all the toilet paper is gone.

I started off thinking about the perfect names for my ships. Unless it was of a class that I couldn't stand to fly, such as those dratted fishbowl-shaped Research Science Vessels, I made certain that I wouldn't be embarrassed to show up on some NPC's target lock. (Whenever I see someone fly by with the name U.S.S. Chuck Norrises Pinkie or some other crap, I really wish we could blow our fellow officers out of space. Just sayin'.)

So far, the only one I've been truly happy with is my Intrepid-class, the U.S.S. Fairweather. I wanted something that could evoke the same majesty as the U.S.S. Voyager had with her name, and I personally remain convinced that I got one. And yes, when I get the LRSV Refit, I'll be keeping the name, thank you very much! I even have a quotation picked out for her plaque.

"For it's always fair weather - When good fellows get together- With a stein on the table and a good song ringing clear" -- Richard Hovey, Spring

Yet until I can scrape together the ZEN for it, I'll be piloting the U.S.S. San Gorgonio, the name of my high school from [way too &^%$ing long ago].

Oh lord, I've got so too many ships on too many characters to list them all, here are the highlights:

USS Cosmos NCC-101864-A: Odyssey Ops, same name as the first ship I got on reaching Lieutenant with a play on the Reliant's registry

USS Wintermute NX-4410102: Armitage, named for the AI from Neuromancer and using part of the book's ISBN number for a registry. I'm such a nerd...

USS Kuiper NCC-92000-A: Nebula, again using a name from a previous ship

USS Pioneer/USS Mariner: Intrepids, thought it would be fitting to use the names of other probe series

USS Stalingrad: Defiant, named for the battle

USS S'harien: Prometheus, what better name for an escort captained by a Vulcan than a Vulcan swordsmith?

USS Caliburn: Sovereign

USS Selene: Luna, Greek goddess of the moon

IKS Comicron One: Phalanx, named for laughs

IKS Helexith: Qin raptor, anyone who's a member of Saber-Scorpion's Lair Forums should get this, anyone else should consider it advertisement
