Re: Name your ship!

I could see the Vostok, the Amsterdam or the Advocate as one of Galen's Legacy-Class vessels or one of Kaden's (W.I.P.) Shima-Class vessels.

I could see the U.S.S. Edinburgh as one of Kaden's Nomad-Class (Nova Meets Loknar-Class).

....because a player that awesome gets his own ship.
Ooh, hockey-related ship names. I like it.

Well, then I'd have to go with USS Travor Linden.

No historical references here, just named after an old boyfriend.
Did he had a really big nacelle?
Only one nacelle?

Re: Name your ship!

When I submitted a script to TNG, I had a science vessel named the USS George 'n' Gracie, after the whales in Star Trek IV.

I mean, they did save the planet. The least Starfleet can do is name a ship after them.

I'm a big opera fan, actually studied it in college, and I thought of naming my ship this except I would do it the German spelling, USS Die Walküre. A couple of other names I've thought of, USS New Mexico and USS Cape Cod.

Could you have a USS Bismarck.
My understanding is that Otto von Bismarck was actually a pretty decent guy as far as statesmen and politicians go. The fact that the Germans happened to have a ship named after him during the Nazi rule is no reflection on him, any more than it would be a reflection on John F. Kennedy if fascists came to power in the U.S. and continued to use his name on CV-67.
Yeah, but the guy went around starting wars for the sole purpose of forcing the German states into joining into one German Empire under the control of Prussia. In other words, he was guilty of what we today refer to as the crime of aggressive war.

Not the sort of guy the Federation ought to be naming a starship after.

Personally...

- USS Liberty, Galaxy-class - not named after the ship attacked in the infamous incident, but just after the idea

- USS Mandela, Sovereign-class - after former South African President and anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela

- USS Bhutto - after former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, who was, if Ron Suskind is to be believed, undergoing a fundamental change in political philosophy towards a pro-democracy POV at the time of her assassination, attempting to bring peace and democracy to a very troubled state; this name was actually given to a ship in the TNG novel Greater Than the Sum wherein it was a Saber-class, though it was destroyed

- USS Gandhi and USS King - named after Gandhi and Martin Luther King, respectively; these would need to be either science vessels or dedicated diplomatic aide vessels, though, since it would be pretty disgusting to name ships that engage in combat after dedicated pacifists

- USS Malcom X, Defiant-class - lotsa people hate him, but few activists were as forceful in their insistence for equal rights for African-Americans

- USS John Adams, Galaxy-class - My personal favorite Founding Father

- USS Sabato, Galaxy-class - named after Ernesto Sabato, famed Argentine novelist and the chairman of the National Commission on the Disappearance of Persons in Argentina, one of the first post-conflict truth commissions and THE first truth commission to publish its findings to widespread public consumption and influence in the form of Nunca Más, investigating the Argentine military dictators and their crimes against humanity during the Dirty War

- USS Alfonsín - this one is probably semi-controversial, but this is named after Raúl Alfonsín, the first democratically-elected President of Argentina after the military dictatorship lost power in the early 80s; in my view, this man saved Argentine democracy and set Argentina on the path towards bringing the perpetrators of the Dirty War to justice (even if he had to stop it from actually happening during his term to keep the military from staging a coup)

Re: Name your ship!

USS Century, NX-90000. Commissioned 01 January 2400. First of her class, and first official timeship of the Federation. Equipped with a chroniton deflector, temporal shielding, and a phase cloak.

I'd been kicking around the idea of this ship and maybe a fanfic based around it for a while, but honestly the new movie throws the idea of timeships into a bit of disarray. For example, why would anyone go back to correct changes in the timeline if the original timeline is still preserved and all they will be doing is creating a third?

Trek has always portrayed time travel as doing both. Just say that sometimes it causes a new, parallel timeline to emerge, and other times it causes differences within your own timeline.

So, use the established concepts that are convenient to my story and ignore or retcon the ones that aren't? Now that's good Trek writing!
