This has probably been done to death. But I will do it anyway.  8)

What was the name of your ship, and why?

I always left it as "Vindicator."  Because that name is awesome enough as-is.

Enterprise

Lucifer, after the enemy flagship in the first Freespace game. That pretty much establishes roughly what year I first played Star Control 2 right there. ;)

I usually don't deviate from the default, because it would feel like I'm not playing the game -- or rather, the story -- as it's supposed to be played.

In original SC2, weren't you given a blank prompt for names?

Based on my vague memories of the PC version (not 100% sure if that was "original"), the fields are blank at first, but if you proceed without entering your own name, they are given default names.  Vindicator and Zelnick.

My version gives me blanks.

I usually named my the "invincible". It always sounds so threatening.

Captain Zapp Branigan of the starship Protruder, reporting for duty.  Ideally it would be the name of a Syreen Penetrator ship, but til I rescue one this will do.

Bahaha, Zapp Brannigan, I may have played a game with Captain Zapp as my name once :).

My current playthrough is Captain Dave of the Starship Violator.

No real reason.

Violator. Now that's a good one.
