Been spending some time on my Klingon officer, Torlek (yup - named after the player character from Activision's AWESOME 'Star Trek: Klingon Academy'! ), and have aquired quite a few awesome ships for him to terrorise Starfleet with...:
I.K.S. Cha'Joh (B'rel-class Bird-of-Prey)
Named after Lursa and B'Etor's Bird-of-Prey from Star Trek Generations.
I.K.S. Va'tal (Somraw-class Raptor)
Named after Kang's battle cruiser from the Voyager episode 'Flashback' (the one that battles the Excelsior). Went with the name from the game 'Star Trek: Tactical Assault', simply because it was the most impressive-sounding...
I.K.S. Voh'tahk (K't'inga-class Battle Cruiser)
Named after Kang's D7 cruiser from the classic episode 'Day of the Dove', taking the name used in the IDW Comics series 'Klingons: Blood Will Tell'. I decked it out in 'retro'-style D7 greys, because I'm a massive fan of the TOS Klingons.
(...that, and the K't'inga model in STO is really inaccurate, and actually resembles the D7 instead... )
USS Toranza - An item from Japan that I love.
USS Mythic - "Mythic" is a trend that I see with one of my other favorite developers, Bungie. It's the highest rank on their site that I hold. Plus it sounds awesome.
USS Seattle-D - A city name from my State, Washington. It's also a canon name since there was an "SS Seattle" in a TNG episode, and a USS Seattle also. This is a possible future ship not shown in the movies.
My future names will most likely be:
USS Mythic-B - See Mythic above.
I had an idea for names for ship I'm going to give my recently added Engineering/Escort character. All these names were Confederate raiders, with their NCC numbers corresponding to the dates the ships were captured, lost, or decommissioned.
USS Sumter, NCC-121962
USS Shenandoah, NCC-110665
USS Florida, NCC-112864
USS Nashville, NCC-92863
USS Tuscaloosa, NCC-121763
USS Alabama, NCC-619640 (the date of the Alabama's battle with the Kearsarge; the zero was added on to the end because the in game registry doesn't go below 91000)
The character is even named Rachael Alderman Semmes, a possible relative of Captain Raphael Semmes; rather fitting since the Confederate Semmes started on the CSS Sumter and ended up on the CSS Alabama.
