U.S.S. Caliban
The Miranda-class is named after the character of the same name from William Shakespear's The Tempest, so I took the name of another character from the same work. Not too original, but appropriate I felt.

U.S.S. Bayonet
Seriously... Saber-class, Rapier-class, Ushaan-class... I think they like blades. Not completely sure but, pretty darn. And so, the Saber-class U.S.S. Bayonet got its named.

U.S.S. Muramasa
The U.S.S Masamune was an Akira-class vessel already established in quasi-canon so I figured since this is an rpg, far be it from me to leave the other legendary katana out, and thus, the Akira-class U.S.S. Murasama was born...

U.S.S. Resistance
Resistance is futile, eh? Well the the futility of my Defiant-class U.S.S. Resistance just blew your raggedy Borg Collective-asses in that cube the hell away! Hooah!

U.S.S. Orpheus
It was one of the only prominent figures in Greek mythology without a ship named after them according to both the Memory-Alpha and Memory-Beta wikis. Not really original, but I'm glad I'm using it now!

Only really care about the name of my 'final' ship, my beloved Assault Cruiser, as the previous ones were upgraded too fast to develop much emotional connection to them.

USS Von der Tann, named after the WWI Imperial Navy battlecruiser.

USS Camden Lock, from a BBCTV space comedy called Hyperdrive, the ship was called HMS Camden Lock, which is an area of London, i thought was quite quaint

I started with the USS Eisenstein the titular ship from the book "Flight of the Eisenstein" of the Warhammer 40K Horus Heresy series.

Then moved to the Anzio through to Anzio B named after a British Landing Operation in italy as part of Operation Shingle. it was also the name of my company when i was in the Cadet Force.

Then went to the USS Epsom, another British Military Operation this time in France 1944.

And finally the USS Charnwood same as above just a different op.

My current ship has a game-given name, USS Agamemnon, but my chosen name for my final ship is USS Eridanus, named after a lesser-known constellation. I believe the Eti Eridani sector is named for one of the stars in the constellation. The constellation is to the "right" of Orion in our winter night sky here on Earth.

I've got three ships I use on and off.

My RP and main ship is the USS Swiftsure.

It's a recon vessel that's used for commando insertions and special operations (and yes, I do use Boarding Shuttle I with it). Sensor Jamming and Trail Masking are its specialties. It also can act as a really nasty torpedo boat in a jam while offering decent support capabilities due to its elite crew: Science Teams and an Engineering Team. The name has been used for many British vessels during the Age of Sail and I just liked the ring of it. Cicero Harper, my main character, has a sort of 18th century naval look to him as well thanks to the muttonchops.

My advanced escort is the USS Shrike. It's named for a predatory bird and it's just plain got a nice ring to it. A character of mine in a tabletop RPG also shared this codename.

Then there's the Deep Space science ship, the USS Courser. A courser is a light hunting horse. The name might better fit an escort or a recon ship but it's one I've used for vessels from OtherSpace MUSH to SWG and in other settings as well. So no surprise it might crop up here in some form.

I have two more ships, now, with different names.

The USS Sato, at the risk that there'll be another ship named after Hoshi Sato in-game.

And the USS Noble, not to be confused with the Nobel.

Maybe I should just keep reusing the Ibn Tamim and the T.E. Lawrence.

My Lucky 13 X name iss my gamertag(added 360 at the end recently to symbolize the console I play on mostly). But Lucky 13 X is itself a recognition of the ship name of my Explorer One character from Earh and Beyond's space MMO from EA. RIP.
