I'd name mine the Copernicus, to honor the first person who realized Earth and humanity weren't at the center of the universe.

How about U.S.S. Mercedes? Named in honor of a Spanish frigate from the age of sail.

it would be of romulan design. prototype self repairing ship, i.e. can whitstand devastating damage and still be able to reform itself... to an extent... even without a crew.

Re: Name your ship!

Roguephoenix, what happened to the Nebula class Phoenix, if it's no longer in service your Phoenix could replace it?
Self repairing sounds like Borg tech!

Just because I want to beat the curve:

USS Richard Robau.
That ship would not have a dedication plaque, as such, just one word:
BADASS.

I would name it USS Спутник (Sputnik) why do they have to be named in english anyway? I think it would be a cool tribute to name it after the first Earth-orbiting artificial satellite, this would be an early pre TOS era starship, Daedalus class.
There was a U.S.S. Soyuz, but probably not the U.S.S. Sovyetsky Soyuz, although presumably that'd be at least as appropriate as the U.S.S. Yamato. I'd like to see a U.S.S. Vostok, Gagarin, and maybe a Mir.

Obviously, I also like U.S.S. Revenge, named after the Revenge-class Royal Navy battleship that fought at Jutland and the Resolution-class Royal Navy SSBN in service until 1994 or 1995.
