For the mantis ships the hydrathist is a common choice for me.

I've taken to naming my Kestrel cruisers (Since Kestrels are equivalent to Ravens, essentially), The Raven.
This is no easy mission...

BUT YOU SON. YOU WERE BORN FOR IT.

And remember:

I don't have a ship naming system, but I DO have a crew naming system that might help you out with ship naming...
Humans - named after my irl friends
Engi - named after Fi, from Skyward Sword
Mantis - named after some other Zelda character, depending on colour (the leafish-green one is Link, the blue-green one is Lana(from Hyrule Warriors))
Rock - named after Rock-type Pokemon
Slug - default name/named after a bacteria (according to the game, the Federation shuns slugs for their cunning, reflected in my naming system. The slug is also almost always placed near an airlock)
Zoltan - named after Youtubers (my first one would usually be Martyn, the next one Daniel/Nerdcubed)
C______(don't wanna spoil it for you just in case) - named after a character from Frozen (usually Anna or Elsa)
Lanius - named after Steel-type Pokemon
And there will always be a Cobalt on my runs, and if he (I?) dies (die?) the run is over, for extra challenge (I board ships).
Sorry for the wall of text, but here.
p.s. @Random Commander I agree about Fed A... Reminds me of that Engi event...

You mean the Crystals? Seriously, they're not that much of a secret. No need to censor it from the 1 or 2 people who don't want their game spoiled.

Heh, Kristoff the Crystal (or would it be Krystal?)

Oh well then. *proceeds to scream "Crystals" off the top of the roof(not really.)*

p.s. C(K?)rystals are better than people.
