NX- 912045-D, U.S.S. Sinistar Reborn, Defiant class Tactical Escort Refit.

My ship is a refit of a past Tactical Escort ship that was destroyed in battle, that is why I added `reborn` in this version. The name Sinistar comes from a horrifying old arcade game that scared the bejesus out of me as a child.

In the Sinistar game you would pilot a spacecraft gathering the only object capable of damaging Sinistar.

While doing so you would get taughted by the menacing voice of Sinistar untill he appeared, chased down your ship and eats it.

No one stands a chance against Sinistar. It is a giant spacecraft eating skull thing that cannot be stopped. It constantly hungers for more, and destroys all in its path.
=)

``I am Sinistar! Beware I LIVE!! Run, run, run!! Beware coward!! RUN coward! RAAWWRR! I Hunger!``

My Intrepid is named the USS Richard Feynman, after my favorite physicist and personal hero. Also my Intrepid Refit, the USS Richard Feynman II.

My Nebula is the USS Into the Void. That should be pretty obvious

I decided that all my ships would be named after events, places, or people from my home country of Canada.

USS Charlottetown - Shikar Class - Origin: Provincial Capital of Prince Edward Island, Location of the signing of the "BNA Act, 1867" - which would be analogous to Canada's "Declaration of Independence" and her first Constitution. (before anyone asks, I'm a Toronto born and Mississauga raised)

USS Strachan - Excalibar Class - Origin: Bishop John Strachan was an important Anglican Bishop during the early 19th century, who ended up founding 2 Universities (including my alma matter).

USS Pearson - Stargazer Class - Origin: Canadian Prime Minister, full name Lester B. Pearson, winner of the Noble Peace Prize for coming up with the idea of UN Peacekeepers

USS MacDonald - T3 Galaxy/T5 Celestial - Origin: First Canadian Prime Minister, Full Name Sir John A. MacDonald. Ship was originally a T3 Galaxy, but was exchanged for a T5 Celestial when it came out.

USS Canada - Nomad Class - Origin: Self evident - Main Vessel

USS Dominion - Sovereign Class - Origin: When Canada was founded, it was decided that it's full name was to be "The Dominion of Canada" However in recent years the descriptive "Dominion" has been completely dropped. My original intention was to fly the Dominion and the Canada equally, but i just ended up playing the Canada all the time.

USS Credit River - Danube Class - Origin: Nearest river to my present location.
