    I'd submit that the next CIC poll (or at least one that happens some time prior to the release of Squadron 42) involves naming the Wingnut flagship...who wants to toss out suggestions on that one?

    This, of course, assumes that at some point the CIC picks up a ship - not necessarily a foregone conclusion on that one.

    Eisen

    I also think we should try hard to recruit Sternenwind and Jarmok into the squadron.

    TCS Eisen seems like the appropriate choice.

    I'm in favor of naming said ship in honor of any of the people who helped create the universe.

    UEES TCS Eisen? Seems a bit long...:)

    Same here. I'd also be cool with the name of one of the carriers from WC (such as, oh, I dunno.......TCS Eisen).

    not gonna be a popular opinion but im hoping for some dlc campaigns later down the road similar to secret missions and special operations. Don't get me wrong im sure the squadron 42 is gonna be sweet but i'm hoping the military side of things gets its proper treatment and is expanded on instead of relying solely on the privateer/freelancer sandbox style for longetivity. I just dont want it to be like EVE. more power to you if you love that game, its not for me.

    Well, we are getting at least one mission add-on... maybe more depending on the interest.

    It's already been established that players will be able to control destroyer/frigate level ships... so if you imagine a Carrier & it's escorts, y'know, the CIC Fleet? Whats that in Roman numerals? 199? So, the One-Hundreth & Ninety Ninth UEE Fleet?

    Pushing that metaphor along nicely. Ha. (And yes, I realise thats not a real roman numeral combination...)

    Think we'd already had a conversation about what to name the Carrier, the surname of a Wingnut past... I have embarrassingly forgotten who that was.

    You might be thinking of WC author Andrew Keith (HOTT and FC). He passed away in 1999.

    I like TCS Eisen, although we've heard it before - I guess Origin were making a posthumous nod to Bernard when Prophecy was being designed. That's no reason another ship can't be called the same though.

    I also like TCS Steed, not sure if that's already been suggested.

    UEES Paul Steed is the name of the Bengal you see in the Squadron 42 promo videos, so I'm pretty sure that one's been taken.

    UEES Forstchen, perhaps? Arguably the good doctor did set more in stone about the WC universe than any other single writer. Just a thought.

    Thanks for the info - I'm glad he got a tribute.

    I'd prefer not to name the CIC's ship after a guy who couldn't keep his characters straight and fed us the same story a few times...

    My vote is for Tiger's Claw if the CIC gets a Bengal carrier. Seems appropriate. That or Andrew Keith.

    Could be a naming convention based on Commanders past... Eisen, Devereux, Halcyon... whoever gave the briefings.

    Or just long running characters? Blair, Devereux, Marshall, Eisen, Tolwyn, Taggart...

    Should create a list and do a poll!

    It was someone from this community who passed away recently.

    Catscratch? Pish! He misses when it really matters.

    Tiger's claw would be nice. For a carrier that's like a meeting point or base of operations for wingnuts.

    Both starlancer and wing commander(prophecy) feature artificially created points/passage ways.

    Hmm...only person I can think of who passed away recently with WC relevance is Paul Steed, and as I mentioned a few posts ago, that name's been taken.
