What will you name your ship

Recommended Posts

I'll attempt to use the correct ship prefix: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_prefix

Followed by some relatively obscure sci-fi reference only a few people will "get". I hear that in the 30th century, naming your ship after 20th or 21st century science fiction is all the rage.

So for example, my Constellation might be the HTV Kilrathi. Or since its cargo capacity isn't the greatest and it is a Phoenix, maybe it'll be the MY Kilrathi. :P

I don't believe in naming fighters or other small craft, so I won't be naming my Super Hornet. I will, however, be naming my Constellation Aquila in honor of Ernest Shackleton's fateful voyage to Antarctica: 

 

I.S.S. Endurance

ISS sounds 2 space station like, rather have different sections with meaningful names e.g.

 

ICO: Imperium Combat Ops
ITI: Imperium Trade and Industry 

IEX: Imperium Exploration

IHR: Imperium HR

etc.

Only decided on names for two of my ships so far...

 

Hawkeye-4077 for the Cutlass Red and,

Infiltrator for the Carrack. Mainly due to it looking like a certain Star Wars ship...

Not sure if I'm going to name my smaller ships, I'd prefer my Handle to be used since they're just small single-seaters.

My future Cutlass Red - ISS Irwyn

 

Other future ship names:

Cliff

Pinnacle

Apogee

Vertex

Zenith

(an obvious theme  :D)

i will give women names :) to all my present and future ships, i only have 2 ships at the moment so,

 

Ship Name, Type (ex: F = Fight, B = BountyHunter), Number = replacements (hopefully will not go up to mush :) )  

 

Aurora LN -> Valentina F-1

Avenger -> Olga B-1 

 

Ewww not sexy at all. It's more like being back into the womb every time you fly one of those femme ships. 

 

As for myself

 

Super Hornet 1: Phobos (first moon of mars)

Super Hornet 2: Deimos (second moon of mars)

Reclaimer: Red Dwarf (as in the series and the star itself)

Orion: Black Hole

I have a name, but I'm waiting on the right ship. When she comes around, she'll be named "The Mourning Maiden"

 

To me it feels sinister, and that dual meaning hits me in the right spots haha.
