I’m going to assume that many (if not most) of you are familiar with Iain Bank’s The Culture, and the naming system of Culture ships.
My ship in Elite Dangerous, the M/V Longshot is Culture-ishly named. (M/V stands for “My Vehicle”) airframe number Rat.01.
I also have a Culture-ishly named Imperial Cutter (about the size of a small frigate) – “Great Big Grey Area”
For the sake of randomness, what would you name your ships?
Here’s a closeup of Longshot after an exploration-run coreward, with the version 2.1 paint-wear effects showing what 3,000+ light-years of jumping around stellar coronas’ll do you your paint. I have a bad habit of working my ships very close to the overheat zone.
