In order from first to current (I tend to pick more obscure names/references for that unique-ish feeling):

USS Parallax (LC) - Was thinking about parallax scrolling if I remember correctly, sounded good so I went with it.
USS Xanadu (SV) - Originally the summer capital of Kublai Khan's empire, but it's been referenced many a time.
USS Amarantine (RSV) - Enya album name, related to a genus of plant, sounded interesting.
USS Cassandra (LRSV) - Greek prophetess
USS Alessa (DSSV) - Character from the Silent Hill series of games (brilliant games if you like horror) - Alessa Gillespie
USS Asakura (ARSV refit) - Character from the anime 'Haruhi Suzumiya' - Ryoko Asakura

# 1409 U.S.S. Penumbra
01-03-2011, 10:55 AM
The penumbra (from the Latin paene "almost, nearly" and umbra "shadow") is the region in which only a portion of the light source is obscured by the occluding body. An observer in the penumbra experiences a partial eclipse. An alternative definition is that the penumbra is the region where some or all of the light source is obscured (i.e., the umbra is a subset of the penumbra).
