My latest ship is the U.S.S. Tannhauser Gate, a little nod to Bladerunner.

=edit=

Whoops, that's my second latest ship. My latest ship is the U.S.S. Vashta Nerada, a nod to the devouring shadows from Doctor Who.

I named my first ship the Kejal, Bajoran for "freedom," since I have a Bajoran character. The next few ships followed suit in Greek and Latin, then I picked up Bajoran again: pagh'tem'far (holy vision, basically) for my science ship, Ha'Dara (home of light) and the USS Bajor for my high tier cruisers.

Out of curiosity, does the game not support umlauts then?

USS CONSTELLATION ... Stood on the deck of the sailing ship in Baltimore harbor.

USS STAR EMPIRE ... Favorite book is Star Trek Dreadnought

USS SAM HOUSTON ... Good man and it was the RP interactive writing ship I commanded in Alt.Starfleet.Rpg and Star Trek Frontiers.

USS GANVNAWA ... Cherokee for The Sacred Pipe.

IKS ALTHILRITH ... Andorian for "Eagle"

It does not. I tried it. :p

My main ship is the U.S.S. Star Hammer named after a ship I created in Spore ages ago. :3

Miranda-class: USS Osiris - found on a list of Miranda registries and liked it. An Egyptian god who was killed and resurrected, which fits the beginning of the player character's career; also, a nod to the Animatrix short "The Final Flight of the Osiris".

Constitution-class: USS Endeavour - one of the classic twelve starships, named for James Cook's vessel.

Excelsior-class: USS Challenger - another canon name with a lot of history. I was just shy of 16 when OV-099 lifted off on that fateful January morning.

Galaxy-class (coming soon): USS Odyssey II - successor to the ship blown up to establish how tough the Jem'Hadar were. It'll have a -B on the registry, but the II is there as a joke, a reference to a game console of my younger days (I had/preferred the Atari 2600, myself).

Depends on my mood and which toon I'm playing as. For example for my Mass Effect based toon I'm naming all the ships Normandy and adding a letter after it for each rank I go up. I'll change the names for multiple ship when I get to VA but they'll be in the same theme. For my tac I started naming the ships after characters from MST3K. I named my shuttle "Cambot" and my Captain rank escort is named "Tom Servo".

My ship is the IKS K'ratak, and it stems from the TNG CCG where I had a Bird of Prey card named IKC K'ratak which proved to be pretty useful for me in that game, so its stuck all the way into STO

I only keep my newest ship, and it is called the Whale because the ship (cruiser) handles like one
