So I'm playing a sci-fi game and there's a convention amongst anti-authoritarians to use names that, when they're used publicly or for official purposes, they cause embarrassment in the person reading them out loud.

I come to /tg/ because I need to tap some damn witty bastards' great intellects. As funny as naming your ship "Gigantic Throbbing Dick" is for a little bit, it's hardly classy or as funny over time.

So, suggestions?

I have to admit, all this has me suddenly wanting to make a "Fuck the Space Pope" shirt for the campaign.
; DROP TABLE "sys_targets_hostile"; --might as well try

Before a major battle, copy the names of every known enemy ship in the area, so they have to specify that whether they're talking about their own ships or not. Do this for every battle.

That is... Actually an awesome idea. I will be passing that along to the team hacker.

Most of them are space ships for a faction that likes to name things in such a way as to embarrass whoever is talking about them.
They're designed to fuck with the enemy's communications.
Now I'm picturing a whole fleet of ships and each of their names is a part of the lyrics for a song.
oh, my bad that makes much more sense now!
>Jump to warpspeed, coordinates (insert coordinates to the nearest sun here)
Name every ship after a line from "Never Gonna Give You Up". Preface each name with a letter or number, so when the enemy looks at the list of ships it's always arranged in the proper sequence.

Okay. Imagine it like this.

The Space Taliban got caught trying to launch a ship to bomb some Space American troops in the Space Desert because the Great Space Iblis, Space Israel, is making them invade the Space Desert to secure Space Israel future supplies of Space Oil. Upon getting caught, the Space News Agencies report the following;
>In local news, in the Space Arab town of Mulamim-Tookookali-Wofamksim-Praise-Be-The-Prophet-In-Heaven-For-He-Is-The-Servant-Of-The-Mighty-One
, a local Space Taliban leader "I suck cocks for a living and you can quote me on that", was caught trying to arm the ship "With As Many Guns As My Wife Has STDs".

Now imagine how hard everyone is laughing in space after the reporter just said he sucks cocks for a living and can be quoted on it, and that the ship was going to be armed with as many STD's as his wife has.

Those are good ideas too. Name them after other ship commands, preferably with something like "Belay that" prefacing them

Of course, enemy ships wouldn't really refer to your fleet by name. They'd just be 'track 1', 'track 2', and so on. Not to ruin the joke or anything...

This whole thread has had me in stitches.
In briefings, they'd probably refer to them by names, or at least "they have x number of y class ship"

Therefore, even if in battle it'd be track 1,2, etc, if you named ship classes and the flagship well enough, you could still mess with people.
>USS Stop Reading Our Name In Briefings
>Frigate class "Add 10 to that number"
At least one ship must be named after the legendary anarchist hero Old Man Henderson.
The Government Stole My Baby

Extra points if the totalitarian government actually did steal the captain's baby.
Ship classes are named after the first ship in that class.
Therefore, if you make a new class of ships, the first one should be named "I Failed Every Military Academy"

"There are twelve I Failed Every Military Academy Class ships surrounding the station... Damnit Pearson, stop giggling!"

Latinfag here, who said it's a dead language?
This actually translates rather cleanly, and is a poem from Secundus to his lover.

"Secundus greets his Prima wherever she may be
I ask you, m'lady, to love me."

Sorry to spoil it, but here's something along the vein of what you'd want:
"Secundus hic cacavit"
meaning, "Secundus shit here"
It's "dead" in that there are no native speakers.
Like Cornish, or Hittite.
Or Esperanto.
You interrupted my porn for this?

Not now captain, I'm browsing /d/.

It's a trap!

Esperanto was never alive.

Surprisingly, no; there are native speakers of Esperanto.
...that was the second post in the thread.
Beat me to it.
Esperanto is designed to be a second language.
Easy to learn with fixed rules and no exceptions.

Hey, the names mean second and first (or something along those lines). Never noticed that. Makes me think it was more of an advertisement than a message to a specific person, like somebody named Juliet looking for their Romeo.

Anyway, ship names.

Gah, that's evil.

USS "You are now breathing manually"
HMS "Never mind, sir, it's nothing"
Primus, Secundus, Tertius, etc (first, second, third) were often used as names
The good ship Lollipop. Kudos if anyone gets that reference.
It's Wincest with an older sibling.
Actually, in Rome, it was very common to name your children in the order they were born, e.g. Primus, Secundus, Tertius, and so on.
Romans didn't care much for the "special snowflake" mentality in their children, it seems.
Some cultures still do.

Just about any Japanese name beginning with "Ichi", for example.

Pretty sure it's 300.

I had a D&D character who owned a culverin--a huge, barely man-portable black powder weapon.

He named it "Reduce Person". It often did. Pic related.
I see what you did there

So many of these would make great band names.

To embaress the enemies
