My ships are science ships...

USS Watson
After Sherlock Holmes' doctor friend...

USS Oak Ridge
named after the a Energy Research lab in the US. Started during WWII to help with the research for atomic weapons...

I wanted to name my second ship USS Rosalind Franklin, for the woman who truely discovered the nature of the DNA double Helix. But that name is too long (really Cryptic?)


I think my next ship is going to be USS Livingstone (as in Doctor David Livingstone).. "Dr. Livingstone" I presume...

Naming science ships is fun..

Miranda Class-USS Dirk Pitt: named after the main character of one of Clive Cusslers series of books. Imagine an underwater James Bond.

Constitution Class-USS Camelot: King Arthur's Mythical Castle

Excalibur Class-USS Caledfwlch: Welsh name for the Sword in the Stone of King Arthur fame

Dakota Class-USS Carnwennan: Welsh name for King Arthur's dagger

Envoy Class-USS Rhongomyniad: Welsh name for King Arthur's spear, not really mentioned outside of the welsh tales

Vanguard Class- USS Arturos Rex: Latin (I think) for King Arthur.

At this point I hope you all notice a theme here with the exception of my first ship. These are all my engineer/cruiser names. once I max this character out, I'll be switching to a Science ship grouping all named after different people and ship's involved wit the Apollo 11 Mission.

Well, I try to use names with personal meaning to me...

My Miranda was the USS HENDRIX… obviously named after the late, great Jimi Hendrix.

My Excalibur was named the USS LACRIMOSA, the title of the most perfect piece of music ever brought to human ears, Requiem by W.A. Mozart.

My current Akira class is the USS ALCMENE, consort to Zeus and mother of Heracles. (I have an affinity for Greek mythology…)

My T4 ship will depend on whether I go with the Galaxy class cruiser or the Defiant class escort. Being a huge fan of ST:TNG the cruiser is very tempting, but I don’t want to lose my tactical advantage, either. I’ll probably get both.

Galaxy Class: USS OCEANUS. Greek god of the oceans.

Defiant Class: USS TETHYS – a Titaness (again, Greek mythology ) – a sea goddess, wife of Oceanus.

As far as fleet escort? Who knows?

U.S.S Allons-y, basically french for "Let's go!" and the favourite catchphrase of the Tenth incarnation of The Doctor from Doctor Who, an example of it's use is in my sig.

my Alt's ship is the U.S.S McKay, named after Dr. Meredith Rodney McKay from Stargate Atlantis.

My ship name is drawn right from the Star Trek franchise.

It's the U.S.S. Plot Device.
