My highest ranking character is an engineer flying the USS Wozniak. Not because I'm an Apple aficionado, but because I figure that's the kind of name that might appear on a vessel that far in the future, and because it seemed appropriate for an engineer character to look up to someone like that.
Most of my other vessels on all my characters are named for cities, states, weapons, indigenous American tribes, and scientists.
USS Margo Lane - Escort - Capt Lamont Cranston - I'm an old time radio collector and The Shadow is a favorite.
USS Banshee - Science - Capt La Crosse - Capt name is a play on words for lacrosse, I coach a girls team. As for the ship name, it speaks for itself.
USS Dark Claw - Escort - Capt Midnight - My daughter and her friend suggested the names for the cat we sit for when friends take long trips. The cat likes me, so they thought it would be nice.
USS Stingray - Cruiser - Capt Tom Dodge - See movie Down Periscope, really funny.
