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.

exactly my point. Personally, i really dont care as long as the GMs are on their game with name policy breakage and change names should the ship name be really outlandish. i could say some, but i think the censor would get me. lol

Some other names I like:

USS Tillamook
USS Celilo
USS Umatilla
USS Ranier
USS Astoria
USS Pendleton
USS Hillsboro
USS Banockburn
USS Hilo
USS Oahu
USS Silverton
USS Santiam
USS Deschutes
USS Metolius

I would TOTALLY command any of those cool sounding named ships!

USS <beer name>

i could live with those too.

but lets ask this: if you DID come across a poorly named ship, what would you do?

personally, i'd probably report it and then just go on my way. Because im like that. don't get real life in my game please (unless its supposed to be there)

I tell you what I'd do!

"Shields up!"
"Red Alert - All hands to battle stations!"
"Phasers charged and ready"
"Target their warp core with quantum torpedoes"
"FIRE"

End of poorly named ship!

We can actually name our own ships according to the latest interview. I hope they limit this though.
