wait, the Firenze? There's a ship named for a centaur in HARRY POTTER?!
Seems to me that there really ought to be a starship out there named the USS Rowling. She's done more to advance literature in the last ten years than anyone.
Though starships don't tend to be named for those who advance literature. The Bradbury and the Asimov are the only author-named ships that spring immediately to mind.
