- 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
You could have a warship named after Indira Gandhi.

I know that I've already named my ship, but I have two more that you all might approve, U.S.S. Normandy and along side U.S.S. Veteran!

The USS Chuko Liang. Bonus points if the Captain defeats a Klingon fleet without reinforcements and with a single musical instrument.

Re: Name your ship!

SS Boundless - DY-100 class
USS Infinity - Mandalay class http://3d.merknet.com/free/mandalay/mandalay.html
USS Eon - TOS era Miranda class
USS Eternity - MOV era modified Miranda class http://banshees.merknet.com/graphics...itydrydock.jpg
USS Perpetuity - Ronin class

Weird names, but I was going with a certain theme for my fanfic.

Re: Name your ship!

USS Bethune, a medical ship is one I'd like to see, perhaps Daedelus class.
Or the USS Amundsen small ship, earlier, NX class!
OR the USS Thompson bigger, Ambassador class I think.

Re: Name your ship!

I do have a ship -- well, a shuttlecraft that I chose to name the Zhang Heng http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhang_Heng in keeping with the tradition of naming shuttlecraft after astronomers, explorers, scientists, and the occasional TV producer.

My STARFLEET chapter is the USS Abraham Lincoln. My daughter refers to it as the Abrahamo Lincolni (from B5).

My nomination for a ship name: The USS Bond - James Bond NCC-007 .

USS Gambler NX/NCC-90001, an 11km monster I concocted for an RPG. It was intended to be a parody (hence the designation "Epic Fanboy Class Hyperdreadnought" but over time it's evolved into a serious storyline.

How over-the-top was it? Please tell me it had at least 3 spinally-mounted hyperphasers, or I'll be disappointed.

Re: Name your ship!

See if you can work this one out?


What about the USS Liberty.

But that might have a little In the Pale Moonlight about it.
