The Dark Apprentice [Fan-Fiction]: Help name a vessel!

The Dark Apprentice [Fan-Fiction]: Help name a vessel!
At the moment, I need to name two ships for the fan-fiction. However, I thought I would ask the public what they think would make a cool name for one of them.

The choices are in the poll.

I'm rather partial to anything medical, so Vertebrae was cool, though Megiddo is rather intriguing for something darker.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

Megiddo is the best, but it sounds to terran.

What kind of ships are they?

One of the ships I am looking to name is a small attack vessel. That is all I can give without spoiling the plot.

Well...the big transport ships in the SW universe were all named after big birds. Millenium Falcon, Ebon Hawk...the smaller ones had names using some smaller birds. Raven's Claw, etc.

Since it's an one-man vessel, you could maybe use a small(er) bird to use in it's name.

From the list above, i find The 'Vertabrae' and The 'Megiddo' the coolest. The Redeemer will grant you some extra fans who have played Unreal though

No offence, really, but I prefer the names with less of the coolness and glamour, because I don't feel that the fanfic field, no matter how great, will ever compare with the established Star Wars Universe.

So, I pick "Fallen Angle".

Vertebrae, mainly because it would be funny hearing about a ship named after a bodypart.

Well I'd go with "Fallen Angel" or "Vertebrae" if it's a small ship, the others sound like names for a larger powerful ship.

If you pick some less used terms, medical descriptions could make for an interesting naming convention

Since the name Tanathos is so interesting to you, I'll give you a little info on it. If you hadn't already known, Tanathos was the God of Death in the Ancient Greek mythology. He was responsible for taking mortals who angered the Gods to the Underworld. Now, since we are all from different parts of the world, I can't be sure that the name will end with 'os' in every version (just in case you decide to look into this further) and that's why I'm not sure if the english version actually sounds the way I've spelled it. Someone who lives there could give you the word with the proper spelling (Hallucination, where are you? ), in case I was wrong.

A little bit of a problem, mate! The name is actually "Thanatos", not "Tanathos". I should get a copyright on these things... if only I could.

I knew about the mythology, but I felt more attracted to the word after I learnt it as an etymological prefix. I've planned on creating purely etymological names for future fanfics. Another planned name is "Quellan Espirit", which has European roots. I won't unveil the meaning yet.

Several months after I developed the mod, I walked into a Barnes and Noble and saw the tittle. I was bummed out that the tittle was allready in use. As a Fan-Fiction and mod, I can use the tittle for the fun intention. If I were producing a book, I would get busted for infringing on the name. Since I am not making any profit on the tittile, I don't think there is any harm done. Worste case senerio, I will slightly change the name.

Thank's for correcting me. I wasn't sure which of those two versions is it, so I unfortunately wrote the wrong one.

I suppose it would depend on your alignment.

If you are inherently dark, then you're more likely to engage with inquiries to force will upon ones who insult or instigate.

Most lightsiders would probably ignore or defer to a benign solution.

One thing that fools will never understand is that only a weakling lets the darkness control him. A mix of light and darkness is a powerful thing. Volatile, yes, but also unexpected, and thus even more dangerous.

Well, these kind of suck, but here it goes:

The Rancor's Claw
Dathomir's Shade
Gethzerion's Wrath

I'm reading The Courtship of Princess Leia right now, can you tell? lol...

a few others I like are:

The Chameleon
The Blue Dawn
The Sepulcher

MacLeodCorp, it would be helpful if you told us what type of ship is the other one, until then I'm just guessing it's a larger ship - a destroyer, or something.

So here's a few more:

Smaller ship:
The 'Stalker'
The 'Mosquito'
The 'Icarus'

Larger ship:
The 'Prometheus'
The 'Supernova'
The 'Transgression'

The Small Ship: The Megiddo
(Armagedon for those who don't know.)

I thought the Megiddo will give the smaller ship a stregnth.

The Bigger Ship: Undecided
(There are several great names in this thread. I am looking at a Sith War Vessel, and I want to find something strong. Something that will drive fear.)

I am still looking at:
The Korriban Dawn
The Dantooine Sunset
The Might of Sadow
Kromen Fang
The 'Tanathos'
The 'Chameleon'
The Avenging Angel
Dreadnous Dire
