It is from a mythological creature from my country. A Dragon that is said to be a both a Moon and Sun Eater.
My Current Ship Reminded me of how this myth creature from my country looks like. Big and overwhelming and as far as my research goes on other myth creatures known on different parts of the world... He maybe the largest of them all not even the bible's description of the leviathan and behemoth can compare to him in size.
Well it's just paying tribute to my country's heritage in the end. It maybe minor but because of that I get to like my country's heritage more.
USS Endeavour - Sovereign Class Starship. Named for one of the space shuttles, and also a ship mentioned by name at the beginning of Star Trek:First Contact.
[Edit to add] USS Equinox - Delta Class Shuttle. Named for Starship of the same name lost in the Delta Quadrant (In manuscript, given to Empress of Pentaxian Dynasty as a coronation present, but shot down and destroyed during demonstration flight...)
