Federation Dreadnought: U.S.S Nightmare Moon.
My fleet is the New Lunar Republic. Seemed appropriate.

Mirror Universe Assault Cruiser I.S.S. Warspite, named after the Royal Navy battleship that fought in both world wars and reflecting the mirror Empire's more militaristic attitude. I doubt the federation would ever use such a name.

I try to name my ships in line with the type of character and/or the story behind my character that I'm playing with at the time.

Right now, its the U.S.S. Jolly Good.

My Hegh'ta is named 'Sudden Death', because it's a hit-and-run Hegh'ta (the kind that Feddies like to complain about).

My Guramba is named Serpent Claw, because the toon that flies it is a Gorn, and it's an all-Gorn Boff crew.

I'm flying a Fed. Chimera at the moment...

She's the U.S.S. CHANGELING...

I suppose it's a fairly obvious reference, but it seemed apropos.

At the moment i'm back flying the U.S.S. Cynisca. An Akira variant I flew on my way to the top way back when it took a little longer to level a toon. I'm back using the Cynisca (Now up to the letter B) since they released the Armitage carrier version and I love carrier combat.

For the first two years or so I flew the U.S.S. Lysander at endgame, which was a Prometheus and later an MVAM Prometheus.

Both names (and the names of all the ships my main has used) are of notable Spartans.

Due to it's look, a mix of Armitage and Thunderchild parts, I've also nicknamed it the Akirandy, since from behind it looks like the SSV Normandy with a saucer section attached to the front.

I intend on getting the mirror universe Temporal Destroyer aswell, if I manage that and the name fits I'll call it the U.S.S. Einstein Rosen

My ships:

U.S.S. Avalon NCC-974777-E - Odyssey-class named for the final resting place of King Arthur (as well as the location where Excalibur was forged.)

U.S.S. Excalibur NCC-974777/1 - The Avalon's Aquarius Escort, named for King Arthur's sword.

U.S.S. Pendragon NCC-974777/2 - Danube-class runabout. Named after Arthur Pendragon himself.

U.S.S. Senbonzakura NCC-91006 - Akira-class Heavy Escort Carrier (I know, its an Armitage, but Im using the Akira skin). Named for Byakuya Kuchiki's bankai, that consisted on thousands of blades that look like cherry blossom leaves. Appropriate considering the Photon torpedo system. Registry number ends in 6, for Byakuya's squad in the Bleach manga.

U.S.S. Steven P. Jobs NCC-95014-A - Defiant-class Named for former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, shortly after his passing last October. Registry number matches Apple HQ's zip code in Cupertino, CA. Registered with 'A' as the suffix for Apple Inc.

U.S.S. Rukia Kuchiki NCC-91013 Hephaestus-class, Named for Squad 13 lieutenant Rukia Kuchiki from the Bleach manga. Registry end in 13 for Rukia's squad.

U.S.S Northwestern NCC-92986 - Galor-class, named for my favourite vessel on Deadliest Catch

S.S. Century Eagle NAR-93504 - Tuffli-class, An homage to the great smuggler ship of Star Wars fame the Millenium Falcon.

U.S.S. Solaris NX-97343 - Sovereign-class, I just like the word Solaris. No real reason. Number is in lin with U.S.S. Regent registry of NCC-97310. In my fictional universe, the first ship in the federation to mount Spiral Wave Disruptors.

U.S.S. Quantum NCV-128807 - Wells-class. Name and registry contain 4 references to time travel shows and movies. Can you guess them all?

Highlight below if you can't guess the Quantum references.

Quantum - Quantum Leap
12 - Delorean DMC 12, the car in Back to the Future
88 - the speed in Back to the Future required to activate the Flux Capacitor
07 - Seven Days, a show about a secret military organization that posesses a sphere with the ability to travel back in time 7 days. Particularly appropriate considering the Wells special console.

Highlight above if you can't guess the Quantum references.

I don't suppose there's any Klingon speakers here?

I currently have a low level Klingon character that I want to develop a bit more, who is flying a ship called the IKS Pagh, named after the ship Riker goes to on that officer exchange programme in TNG.

I've looked through various dictionaries for words I like the sound of for ship names, but I have no idea if the following are grammatically correct. Any notes would be much appreciated!

So far I've decided on these potential ship names:

IKS Doghjey vo' tera' (Unconditional surrender of Earth)
IKS Doghjey vo' DIvI' (Unconditional surrender of the Federation)
IKS ghIqtal (To the death)
IKS chontay (Ritual Hunt)
IKS Mang (Soldier)
IKS SeDveq (Barbed spearhead)
IKS yanwI' (Swordsman)
IKS charghwI' (Conqueror)
IKS veqlargh (Demon)
IKS 'oDwI' (Arbitrator)

This character is why I don't play my Romulan any more. Tovan Khev is NOT my BFF! Get him off my bridge!

So far...

Aria - sci / carrier
Ballad - light cruiser / battlecruiser
Cantata - light escort / raider
Dirge - shuttle / yacht
Elegy - heavy escort / raptor / raider
Fantasia - heavy cruiser / BC
Galliard - heavy destroyer
Hymn - ?
Inno - ?

Easier to keep track of things if a ship's name designates a role ^-^.
