>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.


Well the T'Kumbra for example was crewed entirely by Vulcans. In central Tasmania there is an actual River Styx. (But I think you might end up jinxing a ship by naming it that.)

I have a friend who names his STO ships for Greek mythological beings. He named his runabout Styx to stick with the theme.

Are you sure it isn't named for Zephram Cochrane? Or Johnny Cochrane?

If Cochrane is the ship, you must acquit!

USS Gallatin

The name of the river that is the namesake for the county in which I grew up in Montana. Very cool name for a river, a county, AND a runabout IMO.

USS Stehekin


It is only reachable by plane or boat and not touched by too many people so I like to refer to it as the place "no man has gone before."

Mine would be the Tigris. Just because I like it and because it sounds like tiger, and I like big wildcats, especially tigers. I think they are some of the most beautiful and exotic looking animals.

Should lakes and other bodies of water also be included?  (I know they weren't, but should they be?)


I like the name Tethys, which may have started as a river in ancient times but became an ocean or sea.
