Re: Does anyone have suggestions for names of starships

There are loads of possible name origins; mythological gods and creatures, military leaders and battlefields, ground-breaking scientists, social activists and campaigners, respectable politicians, places, previous ships, and on and on .

The real possibilities are endless. But then there are all the future famous people between now and Trek time (250-odd years), and of course all the same types of people on alien worlds.

If you want some random names thrown out then here it goes:

U.S.S. Athena (Greek goddess)
U.S.S. Bannockburn (historic battlefield)
U.S.S. Churchill (British Prime Minister during WW2)
U.S.S. Deliverance
U.S.S. Einstein (scientist)
U.S.S. Farnsworth (named for Hubert Farnsworth in Futurama )
U.S.S. Gagarin (Cosmonaut)
U.S.S. Hagharff (alien origin)
U.S.S. Isis (Egyptian goddess)
U.S.S. Jupiter (Roman god and a planet)
U.S.S. Kumari (Andorian ice gutter)
U.S.S. L'Neye (alien origin)
U.S.S. Mandela (Nelson Mandela)
U.S.S. Noel (a medical ship named after Doctor Helen Noel)
U.S.S. Orpheus (from Greek mythology)
U.S.S. Pieces (zodiac sign)
U.S.S. Queen Elizabeth (British monarch)
U.S.S. Renown
U.S.S. Saaryn (Vulcan origin)
U.S.S. Titanic (infamous cruise liner)
U.S.S. Ulysses (novel by James Joyce)
U.S.S. V'aa (alien origin)
U.S.S. Wildeblood (Peter Wildeblood, gay rights campaigner)
U.S.S. Xott (alien origin)
U.S.S. Ytok (alien origin)
U.S.S. Zenith

Re: Does anyone have suggestions for names of starships

In light of James Cameron's record-breaking exploration of the ocean floor, I think the Cameron would be a really nice name for a shuttle.

Speaking of record-breaking, perhaps the Baumgartner would be an appropriate, if less elegant, name for a shuttle.

The S.S. Montana for an Aerie-Class medium transport / tender, usually dedicated to the Starfleet Corps of Engineers for boneyard recovery assignments, marshalled to a Utopia Planetia-type parking/orbital station that acts as a local farmers' market type trading station. I could see that.

It's strange, you can spend ages trying to think up a suitable name for your starship and get nowhere, yet I plucked USS Majestic out of thin air for my challenge entry this month and I instantly fell in love with the name!

That's a very nice name. Perhaps for a little science vessel or something?

Re: Does anyone have suggestions for names of starships

Thanks, I was kinda thinking that too. For some reason in my head it just fits with a Nova-Class surveyor.

A nova-class ship or something would be great!

Thanks!

As I said it just came to me but it does seem to fit perfectly. Who knows perhaps a short prequel leading up to the Majestic's fateful encounter with the wormhole is in order?

Something for me to think about this evening!
