My ship name is U.S.S. Argentina (NCC 91005 (Miranda Class), then A (Cheyenne Class), B (Modified Galaxy Class), and now C (Modified Sovereign Class).

The name comes from my home country. Im from Cordoba, just in the middle in Argentina.

I decided to put this name to make some justice; my country has been named only 3 times in the hole series and I think that the Argentine people needs to make presence here in STO.

Regards!

"10 PERCENT RULE"

You'd be surprised the number of people who can't read still.

Also there's apparently some myth about the new Romulan Plasma "Slo-Cone Machine" launcher being so uber that "there is no more 10% Rule."

Facts are: Not using the 10% Rule you might have a small chance of pulling it off.
Using the 10% Rule you will ALWAYS win the Optional.

My ship is named U.S.S. Galileo, named after the infamous Italian astronomer, physicist, mathematician and philosopher. He made new scientific discoveries and made improvements to the telescope amongst others. It is therefore a very fitting name to the star trek ethos, to explore strange new Worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before!

I named my ships after American National Parks ie Yosemite, Yellowstone, John Muir who advocated for Yosemite to become a national park and Sentinel Rock which is the second highest place you can hike to at Yosemite park

The USS Roanoke. There's a couple of layers of meaning, from the Roanoke colony being one of my favorite local legends, to a lost colony also being part of my character's backstory, to it being a nod to the Cabal's history as Roanoke colonists in City of Heroes and an homage to my Cabal heroine there.

I'VE SEEN YOU IN A STF!

And I thought that was an awesome ship name.

Anyways, my ship names are usually references to movies and/or historical events.

So here is the list:

Chel Grett: U.S.S. Red Dawn (After the old 80s film and its remake)

Patrol Escort: U.S.S. Vendetta (V for Vendetta, anyone?)

Odyssey Class: U.S.S. Vigilant (The exception to my rule.)

Mirror Assault Cruiser: U.S.S. Normandy (The Normandy from Mass Effect and Normandy Beach (Look up D-Day, if you don't know what I'm talking about))

Ki'tang Bird of Prey: Hunters Star (Named after a Predator comic made by Darkhorse.)

Most of my Fed Captains had their ships named after relatively recent ships. Escorts were named for destroyers, cruisers for cruisers/battleships, science vessels...well I only have one Fed Sci so her ships were named after my daughters.

I did deviate on a few occasions however.
One of my Fed Engineer tanks is currently commanding the U.S.S. Psychotic, a Fleet Advanced Heavy Cruiser Retrofit. Named due to his love of parking directly in front of the whatever stf baddie and firing away point blank. (except Donatra. He just leads her around by the nose while everyone else dps's the crap out of her.)
He also on occasion runs with the U.S.S. Neurotic....the predecessor to the Psychotic, an Advanced Heavy Cruiser Retrofit. Though this ship has been relegated to "fun runs" in stfs and should really be renamed the "Rainbow Express"

Recently for some reason I went on a "Deliverance" kick with the names:

U.S.S. YouGotaPurdyMouth (Fleet Advanced Heavy Crusier Retrofit)
I.K.S. YouGotaPurdyMouth (Qin Heavy Raptor)
U.S.S. Banjo Music (Nebula Retrofit)
I.K.S. SqueelLikeaPig (Fleet Tactical Escort Retrofit)
I.K.S. UrSheepDintKisMe (Vor'Cha Retrofit) ...not really Deliverance, but it fit the theme lol.

For those nights where pugs are going horrible (yes I pug at times and do enjoy them)

I.K.S. Muppet Hunter (B'Rel Retrofit)
I.K.S. Kermit Crusher (Negh'var)
