USS Ishtar, for my all female science ship. (The more I think about it, the more I'm getting a serious Violet Lantern vibe off my crew).

USS Archon for my tac ship. It cruises the wilds of the federation and lays down the law through the delicate application of photon torpedos.

USS Tiburon

Was actually a street sign I had seen a long time ago when I was a young, little kid on vacation with my family in California. The name had stuck with me. Years later I had found out that Tiburon is actually spanish.

I've named my the U.S.S. Erdeos.

When I started with the naming scheme, I wanted to try an "Element" theme for my ships. Of course, I'm not talking periodic table elements, more like the substances people once called elements (I.E. Earth, Fire, Water, etc.). I didn't want to end up calling my ship the "USS Terra" or something (for Earth, obviously) so I thought I'd use different languages to supply possible names. I wound up using the German word for earth (Erde) and adding the suffix "-os" just because it wouldn't seem all that obvious.

I'm still thinking of possibilities for the other ships I'll obtain ^.^;;

U.S.S. Charlotte my daughter's name, and it makes a good ship name. I use it for my cruisers.

U.S.S. Robert G. Shaw Colonel Shaw of the 54th Regiment during the civil war. I felt like a soldier who died for equality and freedom, alongside his men regardless of their color, was a model example and a fitting Starfleet ship. Use this name for my escort ships.

Currently have a light cruiser by the name of USS Jovian, which means "Of or relating to Jupiter" being that my character hails from one of the larger moons of said planet. The following ships will be USS IO, USS Europa, USS Callisto and USS Ganymede, which are the names of the lovers of Zues, the greek equivalent of the roman god Jupiter and the names of the 4 larger, inner moons of jupiter. Though I have a feeling that IO will be too short and have to go with USS Thermisto instead, which is the next largest moon in orbit around jupitar.


During Open Beta I had the USS Hydra, being that my Alien character what from a planet in that constelation, Hydra being a many headed beast from greeko/roman mythology, and the following ship was named USS Tiamat, not got the babalonian god, but for the dragonhydra from the 80's cartoon series Dungeons and Dragons.
