Opening up the discussion for the name of the ship attached to the mission.  Anyone have any thoughts for an appropriate name?

What about Hiraeth? It's a Welsh word, it means "a homesickness for a home you cannot return to, or that never was"?

Or, along the same lines, Fernweh, which is "A feeling of longing or homesickness for a place you've never been, a desire to travel." ?

Taeko, what's your position on the ship? From your description it looks like you're either a samurai or a ninja, but I'm not sure that's a proper role aboard a starship. :D

Richard, same question, but without the samurai/ninja reference. :)

Good morning!

Mavrik will be your counsellor. Your male green Orion counsellor with infectious pheromones in a kind of reverse empathy. :) I look forward to playing with you all.


As for the ship name, all Luna classes are apparently named after moons, the first after those of the Solar System.

So, I would suggest one of them, which tend to be based on mythic characters.

I like Hyperion, a moon of Saturn named after a Greek titan known for watchfulness, wisdom, and light, and the first astronomer, which seems very fitting for our mission of exploration.

Sorry for not posting much lately.  Was away over the weekend and then got sick on the way home.

I am hoping to get us started in another week or two. I have a few more applications to hopefully round out the starting crew members.

I have two votes for Hyperion and agree it fits the theme of the class. Anyone have any concerns?

No concerns here, Hyperions sounds like a fine name to me.

The Ten Forward thread is open for anyone to socialize before we officially start.  Consider it happening the night before the official briefing.

FWIW, I also like Endeavour, but mostly because I'm Australian. :) It located and mapped part of this country, but also had an earlier mission to observe the transit of Venus, an important bit of astronomy.

Is that Ten Forward thread on a ship or station in the Alpha Quadrant, or all the way in the Delta Quadrant? I've been trying to think of something to post, but didn't know where to begin.
