You may be disappointed to know that tI'bagh translates to "One who plants vegetables."

Actually, that kinda works...

I'm reminded of the old advertising slogan... the one about "two thousand perforations let the flavour flood through". *arms wing cannons and takes aim*

My Holst-based naming scheme has featured here before... about a hundred posts ago, I think. Since then, the only new ship I've acquired has been the Risian corvette, which got named after a very obscure Holst song... the RXS Bluff King Hal.

Here are some of the ship names I'm rolling at the moment:

USS Pax Federatica (Odyssey): My usernamesake is a play on the Pax Britannica.

USS Kitty Hawk (Atrox): A triple-entendre referring to (1) the ship class's Caitian origin and (2) carrier type, as well as to (3) where the Wright brothers flew their first airplane.

USS Pathfinder (Vesta): A canon reference to the Pathfinder Project, as well as the name of an early Mars rover.

USS Mockingjay (Armitage): A Hunger Games reference. (I also used to have an ISS Panem, a Mirror science vessel, as well as two Harry Potter-inspired Mirror vessels, the assault cruiser ISS Voldemort and Prometheus escort ISS Fiendfyre.)

USS Bhagavan (Mobius): A reference to the Bhagavad Gita, an ancient Sanskrit text whose most famous line is the ship's motto: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." (See what I did there?)

RRW Mothra (Ha'apax): I've always thought the Ha'apax resembles a giant moth, so I named mine after one. (See also my Chimera destroyer USS Condor, an ugly-@$$ bird named after another ugly-@$$ bird.)

Two of my other Romulan warbirds are named for heroic Romulan figures who stood up to the Empire in one way or another: The RRW N'Vek (Mogai) and the RRW Alidar Jarok (Drid'thau).

Risian Corvette - Anthemusa
Risa is a pleasure planet. The Corvette acted as a siren song for everyone. Anthemusa was one of the islands that the Sirens inhabited.

Next two ships - Gantrithor and Shield of Aiur.

Look at my name. It's shortened from Khassar De Templari, a Protoss saying. Now my Jem'Hadar Dreadnought Carrier was named after the Shield of Aiur. The Shield of Aiur was a Protoss Mothership. The flagship of the Golden Armada. Seeing as how her shields are tough, and I haven't lost her yet, I thought it appropriate to name her this.

Now the Gantrithor is my Defiant. And it has a tendency to ram targets that damage her pretty badly as a last resort. Now the Gantrithor is also a Protoss ship. Tassadar infused his ship with light and dark energies to create a massive psionic bullet to kill the Overmind that implanted itself within the Protoss homeworld.

That's about it..

Currently, my Federation Engineer has three main ships:

U.S.S. Ivanova (Sovereign class)- You know...I actually forget who the ship is actually named after. I think this Ivanova person was a cosmonaut or something?

U.S.S. Kon Tiki (Ambassador class)- Named after the famous raft with which Thor Heyerdahl crossed the Pacific. I think the name was appropriate for what is still essentially an explorer ship.

Naqarra (Risian Corvette)- I actually decided to use the Risian Corvette to stand in for a ship belonging to my Alien Captain's parent species. As such, I went with an alien, but still rather pleasant-sounding, name for the ship. I may decide to feature the Naqarra in a future LC one day.

My KDF Orion, in the meantime, is currently running:

I.K.S. Qa'rol (Hegh'ta Bird of Prey)- According to an online Klingon dictionary I used, the name Qa'rol literally means "really big black bird, larger than the notqa'." I thought this was appropriate, since my Norgh Bird of Prey was called the Notqa (black bird). My Quldun BoP, incidentally, used a randomly-generated name, the Kor'bak.

And finally, my Romulan Science Lady has run, in succession:

R.R.W. Keras (T'liss-class)- An old-school warbird named, fittingly enough, after Mark Lenard's Romulan Captain from the TOS episode "The Balance of Terror."

R.R.W. Arien (Dhelan-class)- Randomly-generated name ahoy. Moving on.

R.R.W. Aen'Temar (Mogai-class)- According to a Rihannsu dictionary I found, this roughly means "wing of night." Seeing as the Mogai looks like a gigantic flying wing, I thought this was appropriate.

Whoever my ship is named after, I'm quite sure that she(?) is God.

My ships, Feds, are named after ships in the civilian fleet from Battlestar Galactica (RDM Version).

U.S.S./I.S.S. Pyxis, U.S.S./I.S.S. Daru Mozu, U.S.S./I.S.S. Faru Sadin, U.S.S./I.S.S. Inchon Valle

Why? Because BSG is too awesome to not combine with Trek and relive all over again.
