Names change often (right now I'm Captain Kyrin Tileran, the name of one of my fantasy-ish fic characters), but the ship is always the "Ascender".

My first favourite one was:

Cptn:  Slavemstr BigB
Ship:  Dominator
Alliance:  Empire of Slavemstr BigB

And all races still allied with me (okay, the Spathi and the Thraddash were quite willing slaves, but who cares 'bout them anyway?).

And during the game i stayed quite harsh and dominating.

I just wanted to see, if races like the Pkunk, Shofixti, Yehat,... still were friendly towards me or if it would become more difficult to complete the game. I would have liked to see any difference.

I've started naming my flagship Serenity and the Captain's name Malcolm.

If anyone gets that reference, I'll be pleasantly surprised  Wink

I recognize it too. You are among sci-fi fans, after all. Smiley

Serenity's a good a name. Might use it once I get UQM.

Currently my Grand Admiral has been demoted to Captain Thrawn, but he's still commanding the Chimaera.

Some ship names I've used have been mentioned (Salvation, Vindicator, Defiant) but I once used Retribution, as in "something given or demanded by payment, especially punishment."

I just use my own name for the Captain name.

Reading all the posts here has been a lot of fun!

Time for me to reveal myself to you as well...

-Open Hailing Frequencies-

"I am Captain Droege of the Starship Freedom,
representing the New Alliance of Free Stars."

I  w a s  thinking about using names from my favorite SciFi movies and shows, but since UQM/SC2 is such a unique universe creating a whole world of its own... you get the picture.

... and I thought it inappropriate to call myself Cpt. Nightmare bringing peace to our allies or Cpt. Dude (my other nickname) delivering nothing but *Peace & Love* and a mean "He stepped over the Line" Frungy-Strike.

Let's hear more, plz!

What about Isaac? Wink

I used Captain "Blye" on the "HMS Bounty"  I played it ruthlessly, and didn't bother with lander upgrades.  I just burned through crew on the hostile planets.  Take off before you lose the last crewmember, and your good to go.  Grin

Too bad John Jacob Jingelheimer-Schmidt doesn't fit in the box - we could throw in Cmdr Hayes responding, "That's my name too!"

I like my name for the ship - Orthus - but I need a better captain name.

i go with my true name as captain, makes me fell apart of it all and as for the ship FREEDOM. this name actually works on 2 levels

1: the marroned people on unzervault wanted more that any thing to go back home, the wanted FREEDOM from being stranded. the ship gave them that.

2: when they reach earth and found out that the war is lost and the people of earth are now encased in a slave shield, FREEDOM  takes on a whole new meaning.

on another note i dont like the pre named Vindacator as that name implies the castaways new the war was lost and that this new weapon would bring them revenge...blah imho.

Well Morgul is LOTR, so I assume your name is a Ringwraith or some such? Been  while since I read the books...


Oh, and I usually play as Lukipela of the Echelon
