I took the theme of maritime disasters for my main, most recognizable one was the RMS Titanic. My Science has the Hindenburg (Yes it was an air ship, so it counts) Lindy's Revenge is an inherited nickname among my family and deals with last name and right of succession. My grandfather was Lindy, My dad was Lindy Jr. My sister took Lindy III but I loved Lindy's Revenge so I wasn't too upset even though technically I'm the heir to the name. My Klingon ship is Ghetto Klingon for "Where is the bathroom?"

Not completely overthrown...just recognized it for what it is--mythology. A metaphor for the human spirit and our striving for that which is greater than we are, like the stars. The Daedalus Project doesn't denote the actual spiritual significance that the Greek stories about him may have once contained, just the metaphorical emphasis on science and technology that runs through his stories.

Cultures are defined by the stories they tell themselves. It was no accident that the Greek and Roman gods became associated with planets, moons, and constellations (in Western Civilization). Then they became further entrenched by Earth space exploration (Mercury, Apollo, Gemini, etc). It's ongoing.

Unless your ship is named the "I.K.S. 13462" then no, it doesn't have meaning in binary. It might mean something in ASCII though .

((Note not all of these are still around))

USS Infinity: This was the name of my first sim I started, the name I gave for in infinite space there are infinite amounts of problems requiring infinite amounts of solutions.

USS Ryuu: The dragon spirit just like that name.

USS Stargazer: Name of my second sim and so it had to be in game, I just love the quote that comes with it: "To bring light into the darkness"

USS Nyx: Because of the mothership/supercarrier (*WTFH they name em these days) from EVE as I loved that in EVE.

USS My Lady: Fantasy mood I was in.

USS Charis: After the kingdom and later empire of Charis from the Savehold series books by David Weber

USS Briarios (to much whiskey might be spelled wrong): From Appleseed and back than my main fed character was still named Hitomi Deunan.

USS *fill In a Dutch navy vessel for I am proud of our little navy)*

+ 2 dozen more so I cannot recall right now

Um, it should be 42

*edit- yea your right, ik guessing its ASCIIit should be binary, will be changing it when I log back on, binary should be 101010

Did the bloody thing wrong for a good bit of time, will have to rename it, or go the Null Database drop route
