Re: Naming Your Starship

Here are some names from some of my favourite classes of ship:

U.S.S. Ford - Miranda-Class (since the Miranda is the Ford Truck of starships)
U.S.S. Claymore - Sabre-Class
U.S.S. Ranger - Ambassador-Class
U.S.S. Nemesis - Defiant-Class
U.S.S. Asgard - Norway-Class
U.S.S. Trident - Excelsior-Class

It's secret weapon is it's Uncertainty drive. No enemy can get a weapons lock on it because it randomly keeps shifting position. Kind of like the "Picard Manuever" on overdrive.

Re: Naming Your Starship

Well, I've already created and named a buttload:

Of those, the two I'm working into fanfics are the Grand Alliance and the Venture. They were my first kitbashes, so they have a special place for me.

That would totally work as a ship name....in the MIRROR universe. The real Heisenberg headed the nuclear fission program for Nazi Germany!

Just for fun, if you got to name a Federation starship, what name would you choose?

And to make it interesting, don't use any name that is already canon. Enterprise, Farragut, Stargazer, Titan, Excelsior, Voyager, Defiant, Valiant, Excalibur, Lexington, Hood, Reliant, etc. all out of the running.

Toss in the ship class if you're so inclined!

My choice: USS Hippogriff, named for the mythical creature that was the offspring of a griffin and a horse. Made famous by the Harry Potter series. I figure virtually any mythological creature with wings should get a starship named after them! And I'll have her be a Saladin-class.
Fun thread. Some great answers.

I'll go for the USS Thestral. Doesn't need a cloaking device because it naturally can't be seen (by anyone, not just those who've seen someone die).

Re: Naming Your Starship

The USS Sagan and USS Tyson are marvelous, as are the ones from Sci's list.
I'd pick the USS Copernicus. Who better than astronauts to honor the knowledge that we are not the center of the universe?
I'll make it a Galaxy class, since they seemed better equipped for science than any starship I remember, including the science vessels.

Re: Naming Your Starship

I found someone who published a tutorial on YouTube about STO. She created a character named "Tight Pants" (a kind of Vulcan/Trill mix) with enoooorrrrmous...er, tracks of land. Ahem.

She named her ship USS Pants.

Found someone else who named their ship USS Incompetence.

This is kind of a bad pun, but...

USS Mannheim, Steamrunner class

Re: Naming Your Starship

A few of my kitbashes are named based on the donor kits:
The USS Val'Walo was made from a Gundam called a Val-Walo.
The cargo shuttle named Voyager was made from the Aurora cartoon Fantastic Voyage Voyager.
The Klingon Mer'Q 9 battlecruiser was made from the Pegasus Models Mercury 9 spaceship.
The Perry was made from a Revell Perry Rhodan model.
Starbase 51, "Pegasus Base," is made of Pegasus Models flying saucers.

The USS Ascender is so-named because it's backwards (Ass-Ender).

The USS Tiburon looks shark-like to me.

USS Peregrine is a bird-of-prey.
