I need a cool name for our 15th and final ship in Nova Cry. It's a fast ship with lots of weapons, but it's a bit on the clumsy side and a bit unreliable (think Millenium Falcon).

Post your name suggestions (as many as you want) and the we'll give the winner 5 GEEKGOLD! A runner-up will also be named and will receive 1 geekgold.

Thanks again for your help everyone!

Oh, that's easy.

Jigsaw!

It's a jigsaw like a puzzle, cause it's got so many weapons it can solve anything! Also a jigsaw is a sharp tool blade and that's dangerous too. The most important factor though is that it's a fun word to say.

I like the ambiguous nature of this name. It hints at power and prowess, but who will feel the bite?

*Medusa's in bold cuz it's my favorite.
though i also really like how the suggestion above mine 'Mercury Falling' kind of half-rhymes with Millenium Falcon. it's a clever entry, and i applaud it with my vote!
and it inspired a twist on my own entry... what about...

The Signifying Nothing
(Because of it's 'sound and fury')

The Hitchcock Pigeon
(You've seen The Birds, right? I know, "but they were seagulls!", but the Hitchcock Seagull just doesn't ring.)

The Kestrel
(or to oversell the joke: The Centurion Kestrel. 'Centurion' is reminiscent of Century (like "Millennium") and of course Roman warriors, and a Kestrel is a Falcon.

The Somnambulist
(Because it's unreliable, but dangerous{?})

The Erstürmen
('To take by storm'. And storms are unpredictable. There may be better german words {this is a verb, but sounds "Metal !" to my ears}, but any ship with umlauts in the name is automatically awesome. Plus, foreign-language games {and movies, etc} use single English words all the time, and why don't we ever use theirs?)

The Götterdämmerung
(Okay, this doesn't stress the 'unreliable' part, but look at those umlauts!. If anyone can submit a semi-appropriate name with even more umlauts, I will voluntarily retract this entry, of course. I'd add some more umlauts over the other vowels too, but I'm too lazy to look up how to type those. ninja)
