Who names their ship that? Silly ship names.

Recommended Posts

 

My group keeps naming their ship in Earth Languages. And ridculously long. Russian, latin, and others have been the names. Their current ship was called Blood Money, and was pretty cool, but no, they HAD to change it to Kosnicheskiy Korabl. 

 

*sigh*

I’m going to Google that no matter what, but I do have to wonder what is their translation of “Kosnicheskiy Korabl”?

Did they mean this book: https://www.amazon.com/Kosmicheskiy-korabl/dp/5402008256 ?

 

It means Space ship. Apparently one guy in the group was forcing everyone else to name stuff how he wanted it, and he was being rude in game as well, so I kicked him today. He wouldn't stop being rude. It pains me though. But he always named stuff space ship in another language.

My group stole an Imperial Lambda shuttle and changed the transponder at a shadowport. The old name? Lord of the Empire. New name? "BTW, know where the Citadel Inquisitorius is". That is actually the name of their ship. They chose it to a) deter the Empire sending bounty hunters and b) get the officer who reports their ship's name into trouble. This is a running theme with their ships. Their previous two were respectively named "as yet currently unnamed freighter" (to cause trouble with officers reporting their ship name), and "the the the the the the thee the" (just to be all-around jerks to anyone trying to reference their ship).  That's right. Eight "the's", one with an extra e, just to blow circuits on the star destroyers. A player who I later kicked off the table came up with the idea for ambiguous-to-repeat names, and as it was a novel idea and I was encouraging creativity, I let them watch an Imperial officer get messed up over saying all those "the's". I regretted doing that ever since.

In one game I was in a while back, we had a YT-2400 that was named something like the “Centennial Osprey”, IIRC.

 

Our Dynamic Class Freighter was called the "Annual Pigeon".

 

 

Apparently, the timeperiod/bird theme is strong with us.  I kept trying to convince the group to name their beginning ship "Century Chicken".

 

They weren't having it.  They went with the somewhat boring, predictable "Phoenix"

At least they named their V5 Cargo Floater the "Chupacabra" in honor of Red versus Blue.

My group wanted to call their ship the Rainbow Dash, so I had an acquaintance repaint an x-wing mini.

Is there a picture of the re-painted mini? I love the idea, and I’d also love to see the real-world results.

Thanks!

 

 

As one of the X-Wing list with Dash Rendar is called Rainbow Dash, I would assume there are tons of Rainbow VCX-100 and some rainbow YT-2400 too ^:^

Gravitas, What Gravitas? would be proud of your group. And so would be Musk who called two of his spaceships Just Read the Instructions and Of Course I Still Love You. All those names are from Culture Spaceships / AIs :)

Oh, that reminds me, one player who had joined the game a year back once had his own ship upon joining the party, a civlian lass under lando carssiain when he was in charge of cloud city. The ships name? The Dank Weed

 

She (well, he) said it was just a Joke, but since the name hadn't been changed before we pulled into our first port the day, like the horrible substance it's named after; it stuck. Well, for two sessions, the ship got smok- I mean, destroyed by the second session. XD

A previous campaign we had a YV-929 named "The Vandura" complete with red stripe on black/grey.

Course the setting was in ABY 137, and we were a group of ex-Stormtroopers from the Empire in exile, that were imprisoned for war crimes we didn't commit. Soon we escaped to the Outer Rim and took up mercenary jobs for people that were in need, trying to clear our name.

*Queue dramatic music*
