Two ships after the Dreadnought (which is in my signature and posted about two replies above) comes...

U.S.S. Black Phantom
NCC 92976
Tactical escort Retrofit

I named it Black Phantom because it cloaks. It comes out of nowhere, then disappears, and what's left is your burning hulk of a ship.
I am the STO Lorax. I picked myself up and left, until the day the fun is replanted.

I have a habit (being a RL engineer) of naming my ships after engineering achievements, or persons of note, from my home state.

My first cruiser was:

USS Fremont - Named for the Fremont Bridge in Portland, OR

My second cruiser was:

USS McCullough - Named for famed Oregon bridge engineer Conde B. McCullough

Currently, I run 2 end game cruisers:

USS Yaquina Bay - Named for the Yaquina Bay Bridge (a McCullough design) in Newport, OR.

USS Abernethy - Named for the George Abernethy Bridge in Oregon City (I-205) which in turn is named in honor of Oregon's first governor.

My main toons capital ship is the "USS Neil Armstrong". For obvious and recent reasons, as a tribute.

Commander Moira Stern currently helms the Advanced Heavy Cruiser U.S.S. Paragon, NCC-946478-A.

Why Paragon? Call it homage. I came back to STO after the announcement that City of Heroes was shutting down, and needed a name for the Cruiser I was flying at the time. Given that I've been sort of following a pattern of naming cruisers in a psuedo-British Navy style, and wanted to honor a beloved pastime of mine that will be going away in a couple of months, Paragon seemed to fit.

Since then, I've made Commander, and the original U.S.S. Paragon has been retired, leaving the Paragon-A to carry on her legacy of thundering broadsides, a quirky crew, a nutter of a Welsh engineer for a captain, and horrible things done to replicators and other subsystems in the name of boredom on long patrols.

U.S.S. Excaliber: Named After King Arthur's sword given to him by the Lady of the Lake

Registry: NX 97000 E (NX as the ship is always changing consoles, upgrading, etc, 97000 because it was a round number lol, and E as it is the 6th I've owned.

USS Caledonia - NCC-93050 - Excelsior Retrofit

Caledonia was one of the various historic names for Scotland and a nice reminder of home now I live elsewhere.

I've also got USS Alba and USS Pictland in reserve for the exact same reason
