Re: Naming Your Starship

Wouldn't it be simpler to honor Spock, with a ship name, by just calling it the U.S.S. Spock? The U.S.S. Logic is a bit general.

USS Logic! I was just trying to think of how to pay tribute to Spock in a name... There it is
Or maybe a more general tribute to the Vulcans.

I'm intrigued that the L - O section now seems to have disappeared from my original post. That is highly illogical; I certainly didn't remove it. ?!?!?!

Re: Naming Your Starship

But if you truly wanna pay tribute to the Vulcans...Do NOT name your ship the U.S.S. Sybok.

Spock's brother, from "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier". He abandoned logic. And hijacks the Enterprise, in search of God.

Re: Naming Your Starship

That sounds silly. Surely that can't be canon?

(Is there a larger "wink" emoticon I can use? Let's try multiples: )

Re: Naming Your Starship

I am lamentably familiar with that film that was made by malicious clones of the original cast and funded by malicious clones of Paramount executives. But surely it can't be canon?

(I'm nearing my winking threshold. Any more and my skull might rip apart spontaneously... just ask yourself if you want such a grotesque display on your conscience... AAAGHHHH.....)

The French and Spanish at the Battle of Trafalgar would tend to disagree with you. Plus I think it would have an effect on opposing ships.
OTOH look how long HMS Invincible lasted at Jutland.
Or the fate of the Glorious.

Re: Naming Your Starship

From what I can tell, the Glorious had a quite successful 25-year career before she was sunk.
