Re: U.S.S. Whachamacallit

I'll be getting another ship fairly soon. I've decided it shall either be the Tranquility, or Sea of Tranquility, in honor of the Apollo 11 astronauts.

USS Akagi - Japanese aircraft carrier from the Second World War.

USS Challenger - Named for the famous sea-going ship, as well as the space shuttle orbiter.

USS Neil DeGrasse Tyson - Named for the astrophysicist/science communicator/humanist.

USS Kumari - Named for the historical line of Andorian ships to carry the name. Not original, I know, but I wanted to get some non-Earthican stuff in there.

USS Emory Erickson -
The inventor of the transporter! Got some good Trek lore in there.

USS Trinculo - The moon of Uranus, also a character from The Tempest.

USS Guangzhou - A city in China.

Re: U.S.S. Whachamacallit

I just created a Vulcan science officer this month. Her ships are:

USS Sarek
USS Soval
USS T'Kumbra
USS T'Pau

May I use USS Seleya for her next ship?

I love Olympus Mons for a ship name. Too bad I can't use it now, since I try not to copy other players' names. I'm close to getting a new ship, so I'm trying to think of a good one.

Thank You!, I was quite proud of that one.

Re: U.S.S. Whachamacallit

Just to keep this going, my new ship is the Clavius. Named after that crater on the moon. Also, a reference to 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Re: U.S.S. Whachamacallit

I managed to get my hands on a Tuffli freighter. She has become my new dilithium farming vessel, when I'm not expecting to have to fight.

She's named the Lady Penelope, after the character from the old kids series The Thunderbirds.

Re: U.S.S. Whachamacallit

In most games where I have to name ships (there's not many, unfortunately) I name them things like Intrepid, Defiant, and such...but since most of those ideas came from Trek, I want to use something different. I just hit the random name button until it comes up with something I both like and sounds semi-uniqueish. Some pretty random stuff generally comes up, but my current main is the USS Grim (which doesn't sound like a typical TV Trek Starfleet name, but goes good for a hybrid Prometheus escort).

I do the same thing with characters, since I never play the big three races (humans, vulcans, and klingons), and I don't know what the naming traditions are for others. I'm pretty sure my KDF Alien is just some random letters.

I temporarily renamed my ship U.S.S. Yuletide until the holidays are over and painted it red-green.

Re: U.S.S. Whachamacallit

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this before. My engineer character names his ships in honor of notable Star Trek directors, writers and ship designers.

USS Fontana, Constitution Class (D.C. Fontana, Writer, TOS)
USS Barret, Type-8 Shuttle (Majel Barret, Actress, TOS & ST:TNG)
USS Meyer, Miranda Class (Nicholas Meyer, Director, The Wrath of Khan)
USS Piller, Stargazer Class (Michael Piller, Writer, ST:TNG)
USS Echevarria, Galaxy Class (Rene Echevarria, Writer, ST:TNG and ST: DS9)
USS Eaves, Sovereign Class (John Eaves, Ship Designer, Sovereign class)
USS Behr, Regent Class (Ira Steven Behr, Executive Producer, ST: DS9)
USS Wolfe, Galor Class (Robert Hewitt Wolfe, Writer, ST:TNG & ST: DS9)
USS Sternbach, Delta Flyer (Rick Sternbach, Ship Designer, Intrepid, Delta Flyer, Nova, Prometheus, Vor'Cha, Negh'Var, Galor)
