I like the use of "virtue" names because they can be rallied behind by many species.
Which raises another point: I think TPTB messed up by hardly ever showing a ship with an alien name.
I was just thinking, "what about an alien name"
The U.S.S. Shran
for an Akira-Class heavy cruiser, or how about the U.S.S. V'Lar
for a Norway-Class diplomatic courier?
The possibilities are endless.
For an Aerie-Class ship (see S.S. Raven
) I once thought of the name U.S.S. Chok'obo
, deciding that a chok'obo was a large flightless bird used by the natives of Alpha Centauri the same way humans used horses on Earth.
