T5.10 Captain & Ship Names
I wasn't ready for the survey questions that asked for a captain's name and a ship's name, so I punted and picked Harlock and Arcadia (some of you might be familiar with these names).

So what did you pick?

Threw me too, though it shouldn't have. But I had some options: Over the years I've intermittently run 'solo games' in my head … one for a character called Joseph Hemdian (first baron of Yori when that world joined the Imperium), one for a character called William Durrant (Duke of Patu, Core), and one in which I self-inserted myself (as a knighted xenobiologist from Yori). Anyway, currently 'me' has leased a Beowulf called the Lucky Duck and captained by Ian Caro (I know a Safari ship would have made more sense but there wasn't one available) and that's what I went with.

Now that I read it, that sounds just a tiny bit crazy.

Captain Lynwood Laux of the No Refunds

Yeah, I usually end up playing Scouts when I get to play, so used a random name generator until I found a name I liked, then looked for interesting ship names. I need to read more of those Culture books: I had forgotten the fun the author had in coming up with ship names! Anyways, the name seemed fitting to a possibly somewhat shady Free Trader.

Partner’s nickname is “Kat” ( for Kim) so I also punted in the moment and went with Kat’s Meow. Captain Spenser Soullard.

as much as I dislike Facebook, a thumbs up would be nice.

if it was a big enough ship would it be Kitty Kilolitre?

An Aslan capital stealth ship is a Kitty Pride.

I suspect that calling an Aslan a Kitty is a social offense that might get you killed in a formal duel. Impinging on the honor of an Aslan is usually unwise.
