One of my alts has had all her ships named after cities in Michigan. Another has ships named after astronomers.

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... )

U.S.S. Stonewall: Named after Lt. General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson
U.S.S. Gadsden: Named after James Gadsden, Gadsden Purchase

I still miss Karl Sagan and his awesome TV show.

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.
USS Archmage
USS Legion

They just sound cool, IMO.

I'm a Ferengi. My ships are the U.S.S. Acquisition which is my escort, and the U.S.S. Profit which is my runabout.

My Vulcan is a fan of Chaucer so all of his ships are named after either characters or titles of his writings. the primary ship is the USS Canterbury.

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.

U.S.S. Flamberge on fed side and I.K.S. Kukri, I.K.S. Wakazashi because I am a retired knife and sword fighter.

As well as the I.K.S Avarice and I.K.S. Atrocitus after the orange and red lanterns from the DC universe.

U.S.S. Lecherous Scurvy Sea Dog

I've used that name since the mid 1990's when tradewars was hot on the BBS systems.
