    I get what you mean Xavier. Okay.

    Hermes is a beautiful name but we need to save it for future ships. It is a good ship name , too beautiful for a shuttle.

    Nike is a good one. we need to keep it.
    I have selected names that are easy to read and catchy.

    S1- Hera


    Maybe we could have out TSN ships renamed after female greek names and the shuttles after male name?


    I like the idea of all the shuttle names ending is “s”. It does make them stand out and keeping them in the Greek pantheon stays with the game theme. Also the Napoleonic navies used Greek names extensively. Hermes is terribly appropriate for something small and fast.


    For squadron names can we please avoid using Knight for Lancer. Lancer as a word has a specific connotation in English that is explicitly not an armoured knight but refers to 17-19th century light cavalry.

    Words particularly associated with Lancers are,
    Pennon (the flag on the lance)
    Czapka (the square topped hat)
    Kurtka (the double breasted jacket)

    Ulan and Uhlan are the Polish and German words for Lancer.

    yeah i got you.
    i hesitated before proposing “knight” as well. Yet i could not find any better alternative.
    you are right they are two separate things, however it is one of the first things that comes to the mind when you say “lancer”. of course we can find truly related words.
