      Default Ship Names

      Another topic to pass the time... today\'s menu: ship names!

      Just a topic where you can, if you want to, post the names of your ships- or ships you plan on owning.

      And now my shameless plug:

      Split Raptor with Pirate uses: Sword of Damocles (like the sword of the story, it offers you a choice: live a long life without your wealth or a very short one if you don\'t give it up )

      Boron Ray if I can ever afford one: Scylla (this one could go to the Argon M0, though)

      Pirate Buzzard: Harpy

      Standard Buzzard with those wicked dachsund-ear steering fins: Hellhound

      Boron Dolphin Superfreighter: Greenback

      Argon OWP: Charybdis (if it\'s got the Argon M0 on defense with it)

      Argon Centaur: Longfang (and if you recognize where that comes from and what it means, you get a wookiee cookie) [It's the term for a Barabel pack leader, Star Wars lore]

      EDIT: Well, the Sword of Damocles just had an engineering sex change and is now a Python. Carriers are just no fun to fly.

      You've got to admire a society that can make more cheese, cheaper, by convincing people that it's supposed to have holes. - AdmBito

      Titan - Atlas
      Thor - The Avenger
      Mammoth - Fatty (Of all my ships, it has an unprecedented ability to plug gates the best -- and kill me in the process of coming through.)
      Colossus - Erm...well...Your Argon Colossus (have not got around to naming it yet.)
      I only name the ships I use, and I have not thought of anything for the carrier yet.

      A fellow Stargate fan? I always thought your show was BSG. I don\'t name my ships after the series unless they look like them, and I think the current Thor somewhat resembles an Ori fighter. But it has no name besides, \'Ori Fighter\', which isn\'t much of a name. :

      BSG was my show,but SG1 just tops it imho
      but BSG names is a very good idea.

      i love Egyptian/Goa\'uld names , but i shall now have to assemble a BSG-named fleet

      i especially can\'t wait for the Stargate worlds game

      hmm , I wouldn\'t mind too to use that huge flagship of Apophis in the supernova episode... Or even a simple mothership of the Asgard...I really doubt those Khaaks would resist more than one shot...

      Just put me in an Ancient warship and watch the drones fly .
      Speaking of drones, is there any way to modify the PPC (which resembles the drones) to become a drone? Change its color and speed; and maybe even its ability to track its target and dodge anything in the way?

      It could be made to look like one (as you will see we have done something similar in the 0.6 Xtended release), but it would always have the the limitations of laser fire, i.e. a straight line.
