The outlaw courier & item transport service, the steel fang.

I know I've already posted a name but I just remembered an even better one. The S.S. More Powerful Than Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, and the Incredible Hulk Put Together.

Ten points goes to the person who names what this is from first!

USS Ess Ess

The USS Infiniton, for it would (be infinetly awesome) draw power from holes in this universe. In other words, harvesting infinity.

MAH BIG RED ROCKET! That is what I would call it.

I chose a theme for naming my ships. I used nautical terms for a while, but I later remembered the perfect name for a science ship - The U.S.S. Antikythera.

It's the PERFECT name for a science ship by its very nature!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antikythera_mechanism

I like that one.

Maybe the USS Archimedes for another science vessel?

For a warship:

USS Nausicaa, greek for "burner of ships"

And USS Ulysses for an exploration vessel.

The USS FeelGood. I mean look at my name, I'm all about happiness.

Romblen:
USS Prometheus

For those of you who don't know Prometheus is from Greek mythology. He gave fire to the mortals. He was later punished by Zeus for it.

I'm pretty sure that Stargate took that name before you got it.

OT:The USS NSFW or the USS World Eater

Oh I'd think I would go with Tryax.maybe I should find the person who typo'd my last name and thank them

Hmm, starship names.

My Escort starship in Star Trek Online is called the Nautilus, and yeah it's probably an obvious reference to Leagues, but I don't care, I loved that book, and if I ever had my own starship, that'd be what it'd be called.

Other STO Ship names so far-

The USS J.A.S.S for Just Another Star Ship
The USS Yellow Submarine
The USS Quib Quib
The USS Bad Idea

Also when I used to play Star Wars Galaxies I had a Jedi Interceptor I called the Ebon Blade that was fun

I don't watch Stargate. Crap, now I need a new name.

The USS "Insert name so mind blowingly original that your head would explode if you just heard one syllable of it"

I'd call mine:
Sobek

Named after the most badass Egyption god, the one with a crocodile's head.

It's spelled ''Qwib-Qwib'' :P

Anyway: The ESF Silent Pandemic

Xan Krieger:
I usually use "Leviathan" as a ship name but in the only Star Trek based story I ever wrote my ship was named "The Hand of Fate".

Ninja'd

Or USS Prometheus

"Enuma Elish" Means "when on high," from the Mesopotamian creation myth.
that
or Hafvilla, which means "befuddled by the sea."

USS Transient.

Peter's fishing boat from Family Guy.

As for my ship, I'd name it the Kronecker Delta. It's a nice reference to mathematics, it's got a catchy sound, and it can even be spun into a homily about the importance of unity of purpose (or mindless conformity, but why ruin a good homily by overthinking it?).

Barring that, I'd name it the Feynman, because Feynman was the MAN and any functional interstellar starship will owe some of its power to the quantum physics that he helped discover.

Greyfox105:
My primary Flagship name is/was 13th Floor Elevator but that is too long for most games.
My secondary Flagship name is/was Combat Wombat. Here is the latest incarnation of the Combat Wombat:

To actually see such a name on the side of a starship, even a simple CGI one, is a thing of great beauty.

My preferred ship name would be the USS The Game. My enemies would lose long before they ever fired a shot.

Dammit! Ah well, you got the reference. I can't remember if I spelled it correctly in the game or not, but that was my starter ship in STO. I just loved the idea of all of these NPS's talking about my ship like it was the hero of the galaxy, and it's the Qwib Qwib :)

U.S.S. Jackal Head.

Sounds alright...

The S.S Enola Gay, so people there about to get boned.

Nah, I was in the Beta... would have gotten further if it wasn't for the bugs and glitches... doubt I'll buy the full game, unless they do decide to make it for the 360 as well. Shame, because it is a good game, but I don't want to pay so much to play one game when I could spend more time on a 360 game for less cost.

Something along the lines of The Culture naming conventions.

Perhaps the Inconveniently Hostile, though I must admit there already exists the perfect name for a starship in all of sci-fi history: the I Said I Carry a Big Stick (the name is always spoken softly, this is represented by the smallish way it is written)

USS Damocles or USS Phobos

USS Seolferwulf

It's Anglo-Saxon for "Silver-wolf", the name of a longboat from a rather good book i once read.

My ship name would be the S.S Totally Legitimate. The theory being that if every whacknut in the universe got a spaceship they'd name it stupid crap like anything posted before me. (Not to offend, I love stupid crap.)

Passing by any galactic checkpoint, the S.S Totally Legitimate is more likely to get by space cops than the S.S Grand Cross which will immediately be profiled and pulled over for a routine contraband search.

USS You Ess Ess - it's an intergalactic greeting.

If it was an 'Enterprise' type ofstar ship I woud call it something like 'Freedom' or 'Fortitude'.

If it was more of a 'Firefly' type ship I would call it 'Eos.'

Nothing.

To sew confusion.

Sir we have a ship on sensors.
What is it.
It's Nothing sir!
Oh, very well. Continue on.

The U.S.S. NooneRecitesPoemsAboard.
Or perhaps U.S.S. Booze.

My ship would probably be a small cruiser/explorer type craft that favours stealth and exploration. So it needs an adventurous mythical name that symbolizes a trek into the unknown and the heroic individuals on board that venture to precarious star systems beyond known space.

So it'd have to be USS Argo.

Sums it up well .. beoth the adventurous spirit into the unknown, and the heroic people on board.

For an explorer-type ship I'd likely go with (in this order) Endeavour, Discovery, Intrepid, Endurance, or Inception.

For a warship... Invincible, Dreadnought, Defiance, Victory, Hood, or Warrior.

I personally don't like the USS in Star Trek, I've often wondered if Gene Roddenberry actually knew what it stands for when he first wrote Star Trek, it should be something like FSS (Federation Star Ship), UFSS (United Federation Star Ship), or my personal favourite FSV (Federation Star Vessel).

It's not a slur against the Americans, it just doesn't make sense to me and hurts the immersion in the game, imagine if he had chose HMS Enterprise and every time you heard it you'd blink like I do hearing USS.

I would call it U.S.S Spatula. I don't know why.
