Folks are always complaining that modern ship names - in the fandom sense of the term - are too complicated and obscure, so here’s a little game to really piss ‘em off: name your ships backwards. Pick a theme, make a list of titles of notable works of art and literature matching that theme, then take your favourite fandom and come up with a ship for each candidate ship name. You can drop “The” or “A” from the beginning of each title if it flows better as a ship name that way.

For example, if our theme was “Continental Existentialist Philosophy”, we might come up with a list like this:

  • Being and Time
  • Beyond Good and Evil
  • Concept of Anxiety
  • Fear and Trembling
  • Gay Science
  • Identity and Difference
  • Principle of Reason
  • Twilight of the Idols
  • Will to Power
  • Works of Love

Conversely, if we picked “stories by Philip K Dick” as our theme, we could end up with something like this:

  • Breakfast at Twilight
  • Cosmic Puppets
  • Divine Invasion
  • Game of Unchance
  • Owl in Daylight
  • Penultimate Truth
  • Preserving Machine
  • Trouble With Bubbles
  • Turning Wheel
  • Strange Eden

Now pretend that each one is a ship name and tell us what pairing it refers to.
