USS Skipjack, Miranda-class: The Skipjack was an American submarine during WW2.
USS Hornet, Excalibur-class: The Hornet was an American carrier during WW2 (sensing a pattern?)
USS Indianapolis, Dakota-class: I grew up in Indianapolis, *and* the Indy was a heavy cruiser during WW2 that delivered the components of the atomic bomb. Before being sunk and eaten by sharks.
USS Atlas, Celestial-class: The Celestial-class is a *really big ship*. And before the latest update, it moved like it was carrying the world on its saucer.

I was just pointing out that there's already a Star Trek ship with the same name, from the same source. I am fully aware of War of the Worlds. :p

All of my ships were named after famous mathematicians, and my NCC registries coincided.

Just a few examples:

USS Euler, NCC-271828-E (Euler came up with the constant "e" which equals 2.71828...)
USS Pythagoras, NCC-235711 (Pythagoras was the first to distinguish between prime and composite numbers, so the registry is every prime number that can fit into 6 spaces: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11)
USS Fibonacci NCC-112358 (Fibonacci series: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, ... where each number is the sum of the two previous numbers; found a lot in nature)
USS Descartes NCC-162536 (Among other things, Descartes "invented" the format to use superscripts to show powers/exponents, so the register is a group of three squares: 4, 5, and 6)

That's all for now. My next ship will be the USS Archimedes, registry NCC-314159 (any guesses?)
