Re: U.S.S. Whachamacallit

I've been naming my escorts after mythical creatures:
A defiant called Basilisk.
A patrol escort called Manticore.
My current main ship is a fleet blockade escort called Banshee.
The heavy escort broke this a little and was called the Bonehunter, which is from te Malazan fantasy book series, a well I went to a few times for my KDF ships.

All other Fed ships, on the other hand, are named after people or places.
Tier 2 cruiser was the Nathanael Greene, American revolution general.
Exploration cruiser is the Edward Cope, a paleontologist.
Runabout called the Brandywine, a creek in Pennsylvania where a revolution battle was fought.
Assault cruiser called the Valley Forge.

For KDF ships and characters, I mined names from fantasy novels. Icarium, Barghast, Semirhage, Shaidar Haran.
Sunt lacrimae rerum et mentem mortalia tangunt.
These are the tears of things, and the stuff of our mortality cuts us to the heart.
