Most of my ship names come from Mass Effect.

My primary ship is a Federation Sovereign class called Reaper.
Does anyone get the reference?

I also have Quarian and Salarian (science ships).

Coragion is just a name I made up for my Defiant class escort, it's the only name not from Mass Effect.

KDF side:

Krogan (Negh'var class, primary ship).
Turian (Vo'Quv carrier)
Varren (Hegh'ta class Bird of Prey)
Vorcha (K'Tanco Battlecuiser)

I have 2 that I use quite a bit across characters.

One is the USS Carpe Diem, currently on my assault Cruiser. I'm sure most know it means sieze the day.

The other is Thunderchild, the ship from War of the worlds.

My main Federation ship is the U.S.S Indiana because that is where I live... :p

My new Klingon ship is the I.K.V Sinister, (well untill we can make romulan toons.)
Sinister was my old SL handle back in the days of SFC.

My current Klingon ship (a BoP) is called the IKS Ravage, after the Transformer. I figured what the hey, I had a Federation ship called "Grimlock" at one point. I only play my Gorn character sporatically, so I'm not sure how I what I'll call my future ships.

i called my ships with many different names, all sharing a common origin:

The USS Corona is the first i got, and the one i use the most, now it's an Assault cruiser, The uss Corona, NX-9338 - E.

then i have some escort, called Juniper, A and B.

My ltcmd 3 actually has an escort that goes with the name Korinna.

Corona is the home-world of one of the character from the Disney comic Paperinik New Adventury, an Italian production. My Captain is named after Everett Ducklair, an alien escaped from is own culture;
My second captain is named after Zyggi Flaggstar, an ex-PBI( the Disney equivalent of the FBI) that dropped out the accademy because he did not belive in the need of secrecy on important matters(like alien, for istance.)

Korinna and Juniper are the daughters of Ducklairs, and are also the names of 2 of the 4 artificial moons surrounding the Corona planet.

i just love the comic, i pratically been grown with it....

USS Weatherlight, I named my assault cruiser that. It's from a "Magic the Gathering" book. Forgot the name of the book though. Think it was Rath and Storm.

For a little bit there was a USS Energize and USS Sarah Palin. The Energize was my first personal design. Lost it now, as I designed it in 6th grade.. The other one needs no explanation.

My first ship was called the U.S.S. Bravery, because I wanted my little ship and crew to have a good name to live up to, which they proved at Vega.

Then when I was promoted and got a cruiser, that was named the U.S.S Paragon, because I wanted it to also live up to its name and be a paragon example of Federation ideals and goodness.

The next ship which was a heavy cruiser was called the U.S.S. Paladin. It sounded similar to the previous ship name, so I wasn't sure at first if I should go for it, but the definition for Paladin was "fighter for a cause" so I thought it suited the ship quite well and sounded cool when Admiral T'nae said it.

My current ship is a Galaxy class exploration cruiser called the U.S.S. Meridian. I like the word "meridian", which means "a period of greatest prosperity, splendor, success, etc. or pinnacle of achievement" so it has a pretty fitting name as well, because I was aiming for that Galaxy class and now I got it!

The greatest challenge has been trying to think up ship names that sound cool but that isn't likely to have already taken. I was considering names like "Valiant" and such, but definitely have seen tons of those in the game by multiple people.

My ships name is Avalon since death represents the last unknown which makes it the greatest adventure.
Avalon also represents beauty, myth, culture, and paradise; all ideals represented by the Federation.

Once upon a time there was a little show called Star Trek. People kinda liked it, and it eventually was made into a movie, and then another movie, and then another movie, and then another movie, and then another movie, and then another movie. After that, they decided to make a couple more TV shows, and a few more movies. Sadly, however, the franchise began to decline in popularity and the very last TV series was canceled.

Then a ray of hope; the franchise was being rebooted with a new movie by director JJ Abrams. Though the movie was a box office hit and liked by most people, some long time fans disliked it for various reasons. One thing they disliked was the newly designed Enterprise, commonly called the JJ-prise. And it is after that very ship, which some hard core fans dislike, that I named my in game ship...mainly to make them mad
