The USS Darkstar. The ship mascot is a giant floaty tomato that bumps into people.

USS Blackadder, because I watched the first season yesterday.

Or, USS Brian Blessed.
You mean the U.S.S. BRIAN BLESSED!!!, don't you?

[Ship's Motto: "GORDON'S ALIVE?!"]
Last year on YouTube I found an episode of Z Cars with him as Fancy. It was the first time I'd ever seen him without a beard.

The U.S.S. BRIAN BLESSED!!! would be the only starship with a beard.
Check out "I, Claudius" for a beardless Blessed.

I'll consider the name a kind of a jinx. Don't say it aloud, or it won't happen!

I think USS Van Helsing sounds cool.

I want to say Ohio, because of Xenia, but I've never been to the state so it's just a guess. But the only town named Guin I can find is in Alabama.

The U.S.S. Large Ham. Dive!-class.
He's wonderful as Richard IV.
He's also bloody great in I, Claudius as Augustus. I kid because I love.
I think he definitely does deserve a ship named after him, as well as acting he has a long list of accomplishments under his belt: boxed with the Dalai Lama, three attempts to climb Everest, climbed Aconcagua and Kilimanjaro, the oldest man to trek to the magnetic North Pole on foot, awarded two honorary degrees, nominated for Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, and is a trained Cosmonaut.

I would be honoured to serve on the U.S.S. Blessed, especially if the computer sounded like him

Another man deserving of a starship named after him would be Christopher Pike. They already have a medal of valour named for him, so a ship would also be very fitting.

I don't think it's canon, but it may be. Regardless, I'd name one the Horizon, after my all time favorite Disney attraction; Horizons, from EPCOT.
