    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.

    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.

    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.

    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)

    I love it. Named after the whales from Trek 4, or the clasic comedy team?

    I just named my new ship: the Brava Centauri. It was named in honor of an extinct attraction at Epcot.

    The whales from Trek 4. It was a ship from my script I submitted to TNG when it was on the air. But they made the episode where the crew de-evolves into salamanders and monkies and stuff instead of mine so I just pulled the name out of my script for STO. lol

    New Ambassador class: U.S.S. Lagrange. It's a bit obscure, but it's a reference to the film/book 2010: Odyssey Two.
