USS Demeter

It's named after the ship that unknowingly transported Dracula to England in Bram Stocker's novel.

Before that, I flew the USS Erebus

It's named after the HMS Erebus, which along with HMS Terror comprised the lost Franklin expedition to find the northwest passage.

U.S.S. Merrimack

I just pick randomly really, trying to find names that would sound like Federation starships.

So far, some of my ship names include:

USS Beharry - Named after Lance Corporal Johnson Gideon Beharry VC, youngest winner of the Victoria Cross, and also only one of six people for whom their VC was not posthumous. Named a cruiser after him, and if you look him up, you'll see why.

USS Penrose - My dinky little Nova class science vessel. In keeping with the Scientist/philosopher/scientific phenomenon naming convention, I named it after Sir Roger Penrose, a darn clever physicist, and a guy who describes himself as a "recreational mathematician."

USS Dauntless - My Defiant-class escort. A double name reference (and yes, i know there's a Dauntless in canon somewhere) for both A) The british warship, and more importantly B) The Dauntless, Kimball Kinnison's main ship from the Lensman series.

U.S.S. Resplendent - Just sounds all kinds of win

My new delta flyer I've called U.S.S. Rubik - Have no idea why.

My new Type-8 Shuttle is called U.S.S. Pico - Make of small sailing boats.

On an alt I have U.S.S. Explorer - I was in a hurry to try it out hehehe

U.S.S. Nightfall, Galaxy-class
Named for one of Isaac Asimov's most famous works

U.S.S. Apropos of Nix, Excelsior-class
Supposed to be named the Apropos of Nothing, but that was too long. Named after Peter David's character from the book series of the same name. Funny read, the first two. Third book has an unpleasant ending but is otherwise pretty good.

U.S.S. Red Knight, Prometheus-class
Named for a demigod in Faerun (Forgotten Realms D&D setting). That and I liked the chess-like reference for my tactical officer.
