So, you've blown all your credits and you've finally got that nice shiny new ship you've had your eye on for ages, now for the half hour of agonizing over choosing just exactly what to name your new pride and joy.

"The Cobra? Nope, too corny..."
"The Destroyer! No, thats a ship type, not a name.."

Yep, I've been there, half an hour in spacedock wracking my brain for that special name to give my shiny new ship. A single perfect name that will speak a thousand words of the ships history, identity and character.
I honestly wonder if it's just me, or if there's anyone else out there that has the same problem, who can't launch on their maiden voyage without naming their ship. Well, either way I shall volunteer my big list - of all the ships I've named and flown throughout x2 and x3. If it helps you let me know! - and please, if you have your own list I'd love to read it here.

NCS Crusader - Centaur Have you been reading my Fan fiction story, "Anomaly?" :lol:

started pulling my name for ships out of some sci fi books and shows, some kind of classic, one titan Enterprise, Another Vigilance, both titan class, Naming a class and naming a ship are two different things, in this case Argon Titan is the class of ship because the lead ship in the class should have been Titan, name following are by convention.

I've started naming my ships after the lead capital of my fleet.
To cut a very long story short, my game was bugged and so I started again.
When I did start, i scripted my self an Olympus with 5 Elite escorts; and then I unistalled LV's cheats to make the game fair, ish. :rolleyes:
The olympus is great, but I name all of my other ships from that one - (Capital MO: Olympus Corperation - M3's: Alpha Corp 1a, 2a ,3a etc... )

By the way, welcome netrunner2020 to the forums :wave:
