All of my ships are named after mythical monsters.

Revenant = (A spirit that comes back from the dead to avenge it's own death) (original Enterprise type Constitution class bonus ship)
Chimera = (head and body of a lion, tail of a scorpion, goats head on back) Cruiser (equipped a lot of turrets and mines - turrets = goat head on back 360 arc, mines = scorpion tai)
Manticore = (body of lion, head of a man, spiked tail) Hvy Cruiser, similar load out to Chimera
Leviathan = (a very large sea monster) Exploration Cruiser (those things are huge)
Typhon = Not to be confused with a Typhoon... (The largest monster in greek mythology) will be my Tier 5 cruiser.

Backstory is that my character (which looks monster like herself) is fascinated by earth monster myths and human's reactions to them and her.

USS Limulus for the horseshoe crab (Limulus polyphemus)
USS Echinoderm for all of the spiny things in the sea
USS Vampyroteuthis the "vampire squid from hell" since the ship looks a bit squid-like minus a few tentacles

U.S.S. Banshee - the name of a Starfleet Intelligence ship I captained in a play-by-email Star Trek game. I got the name from an American Civil War blockade runner of the same name.

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

U.S.S Wasabi

Named after the brewer's blackbird my wife and I rescued outside our favorite sushi resturant, Wasabi Sushi. He must have fallen from a nest and there was too much traffic, cats, and other things around there for the parents to properly take care of him. We took him home in a to-go box and fed him crushed seed mixed with water and tofu.
