Skyeward -> Best spaceship names (5/6/2012 10:48:39 AM)

What's the best name for a spaceship or, to avoid a debate about what constitutes a spaceship :P any kind of space-faring vessel - cargo, people, whatever - that you've seen in a film/game?




DancingClown -> RE: Best spaceship names (5/6/2012 10:51:56 AM)

Gotta be the Millenium Falcon.

The Neberkenezer [:)] (and yes I know it's technically not in space, but it's still a ship, and it has an awesome name - does that count?)

Same here. [:D]


Anyways...

SS Botany Bay

Icarus II




RobotDevil -> RE: Best spaceship names (5/6/2012 3:33:56 PM)

Have to mention Serenity.

Icarus II is a cool name mainly for the balls it takes to call it that after a) what happened to Icarus and b) the fact that the first one failed it's mission.




Skyeward -> RE: Best spaceship names (5/6/2012 9:39:00 PM)

Whistler, I also like Nebuchadnezzar, shame it isn't a spaceship XD I edited it out of the OP once I reliased it wasn't, knew I'd get a ton of abuse for putting it :P

I lolled at Icarus II RobotDevil XD

Pillar Of Autumn (Halo)
Ebon Hawk (Star Wars: KOTOR)
Spaceball One!!! (Spaceballs - what a film XD )

This wins the Ugliest spaceship design competition.
It looks like a Hammer-Head Shark with Tits.[:'(]




Skyeward -> RE: Best spaceship names (6/6/2012 9:58:24 AM)

Ugliest? That combines two of the best things in life!

Sharks and tits? Or are you counting each breast as one?

sharkboy -> RE: Best spaceship names (6/6/2012 1:44:22 PM)

Its a pity this thread is limited to movie/game ships.  If it were open to any media, Iain M Banks' culture ships would walk it!  How about these apples?

GSV So Much For Subtlety
GCU Just Read The Instructions
dROU Frank Exchange of Views
I Blame My Mother (and its sister ship I Blame Your Mother)
GCU Big Sexy Beast
GCU Funny, It Worked Last Time...
VFP Resistance is Character Forming
GCU Just Another Victim Of The Ambient Morality

But since it is movies/games only, I'll go with Heart of Gold, mainly because I like Neil Young and Douglas Adams

There's some great ones in SF novels.

A couple more....
Battlestar Galactica
Gunstar from the Last Starfighter.

The worst name could well be United Planets Cruiser C-57D from Forbidden Planet, it deserved better.

Found this site, not the greatest names but top 75 ships according to someone.......some good photos...
