USS Florida-Galaxy X- No fancy description here, its the state I'm from and live in
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!``
I decided that all my ships would be named after events, places, or people from my home country of Canada.
