My main two characters ship name origins:

U.S.S. Manhattan

A Tactical Escort Retrofit.

I named her so because I like the idea of Starfleet having secret projects like the Manhattan project of the 1940's and the Defiant class always seemed like one of those projects to me.

U.S.S. Odyssey

An Assault Cruiser

(I named her before the release of the Odyssey Star Cruiser) I had gone through a Greek theme of ship names and decided to keep the tradition .

Odyssey Tactical Cruiser: U.S.S. Mriya
"Mriya" is the Russian name for the Antonov An-225 (N.A.T.O. reporting name: "Cossack"). With an impressive length of 84 metres, and wingspan of 88 metres, it is currently the world's largest aircraft.


Registry: NX-917950-X
This was proudly chosen in honour of the the SR-71 (N.A.T.O. reporting name: "Blackbird"). To be exact, the tail number of the first prototype was 61-7950. For my ship, I changed the 6 to a 9 because Star Trek Online requires all registry numbers to begin with 9.

Basically I wanted an ambivalent name to remind the crew and officers of the ugly and controversial side of the Federation's military force. I was thinking of doing a reference to Iain Banks' ship minds, with the sardonic names like "Killing Time" or "A Frank Exchange of Views" but, the client wouldn't allow it.

Then I thought about naming the ship after controversial battles or massacres, like My Lai, Wounded Knee, Katyn Forest or Verdun.

But I finally I decided to name my ship after famous Earth political leaders in the developing world, after decolonization. I settled on Patrice Lumumba, the first legally elected leader of the Republic of Congo in 1960. Belgium, the former ruler of the Congo, intervened and had him deposed and shot. He was replaced by Mobuto Sese Seko, an outrageous tyrant who ruled for 37 years. Anyway, I figured Lumumba was on the right side of history, even though he wasn't successful.

So USS Lumumba it is.

If I upgrade to a new ship, I think I'll continue on this line. USS Allende, USS Mandela, USS Kenyetta, USS Ho Chi Minh, USS Trotsky, etc.
