my current main has flown ships all named after Babylon 5 ships, right now he is on the U.S.S. Black Star and will eventually switch to the U.S.S. White Star if he gets a T5 Akira or the U.S.S. Excalibur on a Sovereign Refit.
Tactical Escort Retrofit
Same name as the model of my car (2001 Acura Integra GS-R). The last four digits of the ship's registry number are the same numbers used on my license plate.
U.S.S SONEO SHIDAE
Fleet Patrol Escort
I'm a big SNSD fan. "Soneo Shidae" is group's full Korean name. The last four digits of the registry number is the date that the group debuted (August 5, 2007).
Heavy Escort Carrier
I'm a fan of the Final Fantasy series. I took the name from the same Heavy Escort ship of the Archadian Fleet in Final Fantasy XII. In the game, the ship's official designation is "CB58." In "pager-code" back in the day, "CB58" is "6858." And that's what I used for the ship's registry number.
"Zantetsuken" is Odin's special attack in all of the Final Fantasy series. The registry number doesn't allow any numbers below 91000, so "9ODIN" = "91ODN" = "91007."
Mirror Assault Cruiser
Shiva is one of the summons in Final Fantasy. And is known for having an affinity to ice. So I decorated the ship with light-blue patterns and equipped her with the Breen Supercooled set. The registry number, 95118 is "9-SVA" = "95118."
Odyssey Star Cruiser
The biggest, baddest, dragon in all of video games. If anyone's played any Final Fantasy, they know who Bahamut is. He has a special attack that deals "9999" damage. It seemed like an appropriate registry number for it's namesake.
My first ship is called USS Yamato my Light Frigate or Miranada class. I named it not just for the japanese battleship but for the tv series space battleship Yamato called Star Blazers here in the USA
My constitution or Light Cruiser USS Imperial Terran which is basically Terran Empire my favorite from Star Trek TOS and Star Trek Enterprise which is sort of the theme for all my ships
My Cruiser which looks like Enterprise-A the constitution refit is called USS Imperator which in star trek mirror universe novel was the flagship of the terran empire before the USS Defiant was found. It is latin for emperor or warlord.
My Excelsior heavy cruiser was USS Potemkin but that was the name of a ship Commander Riker served on. So I renamed it USS Impero. Impero is italian for Empire and was the name of an italian battleship during word war ii it was later sunk by Germans when italy joined the Allies. The germans did not want the allies.
My Galaxy class ship is the USS Hyperion named after the Titan who was super strong also a villian and super hero in Marvel Comics.
USS Banshee my Defiant class ship named after the Banshee of irish myths. When you heard the scream or song it would usually mean danger and death.
USS Boston my defiant retrofit and best ship with borg modifications and armed with phaser cannons. Boston is in my home state and major battles of the American Revolution were fought there.
USS Tyre is my Ferengi D'akora Maruader Tyre was the capital city of Phoencians one of the first civilizations that traveled far and traded with many cultures
USS Omerta is my Sovergin ship and Assault Cruiser Omerta is a sicillian code of silence basically it goes "if you kill me i forgive you but if i live i will kill you" in the mirror universe i figure it would be a code they live by
USS Revenger is my Mirror Universe Assault Cruiser it looks like the Star Cruiser of course. I have this ship equipped with anti proton cannons
USS Ruthless my Mirror Universe Star Cruiser (soverign class) I need to tweak it. The names of both mirror universe ships come from Star Trek Shattered Universe which was a video game with Captain Sulu and the Excelsior trapped in the Mirror Universe.
USS DEATHWEB is my Tholian Orb Weaver it is a very interesting ship i named it after a group of super villians that have spider powers and of course battled Spiderman and the Avengers
i have used many names and sometimes changes them. there is only one which i have used for 10 years in other trek games which started as a joke but stuck by my side. its the only name for which i was forced by sto to change or get banned. i have seen much worse many times over but they just had to pick on mine. it was...
USS SPOCKS LEFT N*T
i am leaving out the full name so not to offend but it gets a lot of attention usually asking why spocks left n*t? because in my old game spocks right n*t would not fit.
people asking me which is the more logical n*t
just trying to gave a few players a quick lol.
other memorable names i have used
SIR POOP A LOT
BIRD DROP SOUP
CLUE THE SLOTH
i have also noticed they particularly dont like any ship with the name MONITOR in it which has been my core gaming name forever before coming over to sto.
