    Only? Seems like by now they would have already had to employ alternate alphabets to designate them.
    Or maybe it's a whole class of ships. The "Expendable Class"

    USS Peanut Hamper. Someone should name a ship after that plucky little exocomp ensign who refused to let her shipmates pressure her into an action she did not feel comfortable doing, and was tragically MIA following a transporter accident.

    USS Black Chili-Burger? I can live with that.

    How about the USS Calvin Klein, a ship where they care more about how their uniforms look, than exploring anything.
    Then there's the USS Flatulance, manned by the methane-breathers of Cowpatty VII, and built on Uranus.

    Considering how often Starfleet changes uniforms, they’d never leave space dock..

    That actually gave me an idea...

    The USS Candy Man

    And it plays the song over communications whenever it hails another ship

    Being a horror fan, Candyman gives me a totally different vibe. Say its name five times in a mirror...

    Years ago, when some friends of mine and I were doing a Star Trek role playing game, we named our redshirt non player character Ensign Fodder. :)
