The Prometheus-class is probably my favorite ship class of all time (apart from the Galaxy-class, at least), but people are suggesting that this project was a failure and that it will have been abandoned by the time STO hits.  I hope that by that time we will be seeing a new attempt at something like this, and I would therefore like to name my ship the U.S.S. Bergelmir after the giant who along with his wife (I'd like to name it after her, as I will refer to my ship as being a "her", but I don't think her name is known) gave birth to a new line of giants when all but the two of them were dead, according to Norse mythology.  Of course, while Prometheus is a fire giant in Greek mythology, Bergelmer is an ice giant of Norse mythology; this reflects my heritage, as I am Norse and winter is my season of birth (and my favorite season, for that matter).

As Bergelmer was the father of this new line of giant, rather than a child of it, the name would be even more fitting if I were given command of an unfinished prototype of this new class of ships, but I guess I should curb my optimism somewhat ;)

enlight of the huge number of entries that where given to the Starship Names Data base (10,000 +) it was quite apparent to the Star Trek Online community that they be given the ability to name there own ship. What would you name your ship, and do you feel that this would add value to game play?

For us trekkies, i think that it would make us feel closer to our ships. however, you must remember that while there are good names, there are also 'censored' ones.

USS Picard sucks
USS sevens kitty
USS data lives
USS janeways killer
USS <foreign language curse word>


etc etc etc

so honestly, if we were given a list to pick from, i actually would probably like that better.

I think I like this idea better than allowing people to come up with some off-the-wall name. Part of the mystique of the franchise for me was the ship names, I think it would detract for me to come into a new sector and be hailed by the USS Bozo's Behind, or whatever they could come up with. I like the idea of a list of approved names.
