My light cruiser is named the U.S.S. Hovvaj, which means "Star Warrior" in Klingon, because my character is a Klingon (officially, Alien, until Cryptic adds Klingon as a Fed race).

Strangely enough, I had curiosly selected the random name option during open beta (just to experiment around) and the ship's name that appeared was U.S.S. Merrimack. Historically speaking, the Merrimack was scuttled in the Elizabeth River in my home state of Virginia by the North at the start of the American Civil War. She was later salvaged and rebuilt there as the Confederate State's first Iron Clad C.S.S. Virginia. So I kept the name for my Miranda class vessel and decided to use again for Early Start as well. For those of you who do not know, C.S.S. Virginia (formally U.S.S. Merrimack) and the U.S.S. Monitor (the North's 2-gun in a turret Iron clad) also made world newspapers when they had their first only battle at Hampton Roads Virginia in 1862. The battle ended in a draw as neither had the punch to destroy the other. The Monitor would eventually sink during a storm just off the coast of North Carolina and the Virginia would be scuttled yet again in the James River to prevent it from being captured by the encroaching Northern Union forces. Btw my U.S.S. Merrimack is commanded by Lt. Amos Hale, Hales are one of the first families of Virginia history (like the famous Lee family of Virginia). No my real name isn't Hale nor am I kin to them either. Just though it was cool name for a Captain is all!

"Admiral, we will not give the enemy any quarter.... we will give them Hale instead!"

I prefer my ships (in fan fic or STO) be named after ambassadors, world-class writers or recycled from Classic (TOS) Trek.

USS Osprey - NCC 93001
Cpt. Hobart

Osprey is my internet call-sign, but it's also a Bird of Prey I'm quite fond of.

Captain named for the son of the 6th Earl of Buckinghamshire who served as a Turkish Naval Admiral ('Pasha' Hobart), and gave his name to my 'House' at grammar school.

Well, the U.S.S. Anushik is named after my baby girl, and my Gamestop Connie (When I get it) will be named after my wife, the U.S.S. Goharik. After that, the gloves come off
