I am a big fan of all sci-fi, so my ship names reflect that.
When I first joined the game, I named my ship the U.S.S. Serenity Valley
. I was surprised it wasn't taken, so I proudly christen each of my new ships the Serenity Valley after renaming the old one.
When I bought my current ship, i wasn't ready to start using it because i had to outfit the consoles, so I renamed the prior ship U.S.S. Tannhauser Gate
And since they used to name Runabouts after rivers, my runabout is the U.S.S. River Tam
And if I drag out my old defiant one day, you can say hello to the U.S.S. Sydney Bristow
