I named my ship after the town where I spent my undergrad years, San Marcos, TX. Best six (yes six) years of life!

All of mine are named after Meteorlogical Satellites except for Telstar which is named after the 1st satellite to transmit television, telephone, and fax thru space and SeaWiFS as that is just a sensor package.

Starting Ship - U.S.S. Telstar

Science Vessel - U.S.S. Envisat

Research - U.S.S. MetOp-A

Long Range - U.S.S. NOAA-1

Deep Space - U.S.S. Meteosat

Reconnaissance - U.S.S. SeaWiFS
note: SeaWifS is a NASA Scientific Instrument onboard the satellite OrbView-2 (aka: SeaStar) as such I might rename that to SeaStar.

One ship name I'll use (first science vessel) will be the USS Leidenfrost. After the Leidenfrost effect. In and out of the fire (quickly) without getting burned. In CB I used the name for an escort, but I was frequently burned.

USS Valley Forge named after Valley Forge, PA. This is where Washington and is troops set up camp for the winter during the Revolutionary War. A time of great suffering but at the same time great reconstruction for the army.

I haven't decided if I am going to stick with that name throughout or change though.

My starting ship for my main, Blackavaar is the U.S.S. Watership Down. It was my favorite book as a child. His second ship will be called the U.S.S. Strangelove. One of my favorite films.

I started a Borg character with my friend earlier today. I haven't played him much yet, but his starter ship is called the U.S.S. Borgnine, after Ernest and as a play on the word Borg.

USS DEFIANCE Not a reference or connection to Defiant. Just like the way it sounds, fits my character and play style. I defy those Klingons to kill me
