Runabouts are typically named for rivers. If you had a runabout to name, which river would you name it for?  Any particular reason for choosing that river?

I never spent much time around rivers, growing up in Florida. 


I like the name Mississippi.  It is a great river in American lore.  I'm shocked it was never used in DS9, Sisko growing up in New Orleans.


Being in the NW now, I've grown fond of the Columbia.

What always made me curious is why would they all be named after rivers on earth?

They didn't say exactly why but it was probably a choice of Sisko's.

I think I read somewhere that ALL runabous are named afterrivers.... recently they've started using other planets rivers... guess there's not going to be too many runabout river names from Vulcan

Speaking of naming...very seldomely do we see ships named with something other than human terminology. I never hear any Tellerite names, or Andorian names like the USS Shran or USS Kumari, yet there's an Archer Class vessel, at least the books.

Then there are names like Enterprise, Excelsior, Challenger, Valiant, Voyager, Defiant, and Venture, which work just as well in any language. There was a USS Gorkon, plus several with Vulcan names.


I was born near a river called "Wey", which would be a very silly name for a runabout. But there's a river near by called the Piddle, which would be even worse!

Yes, there are those general term names, but never anything specific from other cultures, with one or two exceptions towards Vulcans.

The Maumee is an interesting name.  My favorite river is the Danube, but that was used long ago.
