All my ships since beta have been the U.S.S. Thunderchild after the Akira class seen in star trek first contact. even have the same Starfleet reg but with a 9 in front, well except on my corvette, that's just Thunderchild. oh just posted this and seen my avatar is also that same ship lol. funny that I never have had that ship in sto was in cruisers until I got the risen corvette. oh and my captain is Davian Thule from dawn of war 2

I named my series of cruisers the Yamato after the Yamato named Yamato class battleship. It fits due to the fact that I named my character Yamamoto, though I can't say he's full Admiral like the real Yamamoto.

Anyway, I named my new Nebula (Advanced) the Genbu after the Japanese deity turtle of the West. Thinking of naming my new Dreadnought Cruiser the Susano'o after the Japanese storm god.

I watched a mini series call "HORNBLOWER" a tale of a midshipman in the Royal Navy in the late 1700s, and 1800s. I loved the show and the names of 2 ship he served on really had meaning to me.

My fleet Defiant is named U.S.S Johnston, after the destroyer escort from the WW2 battle of Leyte Gulf. When Admiral Kurita's center force, including the Yamato, was allowed to drive unopposed right at Admiral Sprague's unit of vulnerable escort carriers, Lt Commander Evans of the U.S.S. Johnston drove full speed at the entire enemy fleet firing every gun and torpedo he had, severely damaging an IJN heavy cruiser. The other two destroyers then joined in, with the aid of the escort carriers they launched a counter attack so vicious that Admiral Kurita thought he had encountered Admiral Halsey's 3rd fleet in its entirety, so Kurita retreated. The Johnston did not survive the battle of course, but it's final act would have inspired an entire Klingon opera..

On my Rommie, all my ships are named after things from the Chronicles of Riddick franchise. >.> Her T5 ship is a mirror ha'feh named Teacup with a runabout named tin key. >.>

On my Betazoid Feddy, she has all spiritual animal names, mostly wolves and dragons. She is currently flying the USS Diri Lupa.

On my Caitian, her ships are all infernal based. She is currently flying the USS She-devil. >.>

I love New Orleans and I'm from Louisiana, so most of the ships I've used have been named the USS New Orleans. I'm currently in the Odyssey Class New Orleans-D

My crimelord character, Sabbat flies the IRW Doppelganger a Dreadnought class Scimitar which is named because he is an alternate dimension variant which replaced the original crime lord character I played. So it's sort of a clever play.

The primary ship I use is a Prometheus Class (with Phoenix saucer) which I called the USS Essex-B - I decommissioned the ShiKahr and named this ship after her, my first ship which was rather boringly called after the county where I live, but have since found out has been used by the Royal Navy.

The secondary ship I sometimes use are:

USS Aldrin - Yellowstone Runabout - named after the first man to speak from the moon!!!
USS Beagle - Nebula class - as an advanced research vessel I named it after the ship Darwin used on the voyages he used to develop his theory of evolution.
Rom character: RRW Bloodwing II named after a ship from a Star Trek paperback story
KDF character: IKS BorCha - doesn't have a translation into English but thought it sounded Klingon and good.
