I guess never actually getting to name a ship previously has created a tradition for Kaff.

Who came up with "post dated loan check"?
(WHY did they come up with post dated loan check?)

... and the others?

PDCL was picked by Petey

Touch-And-Go was Ennesby's idea

I think the Scrapyard of Insufferable Arrogance was Kevyn?

And all the recent ones were picked by whoever the AI was

I remember Petey wanted a name to strike fear in the hearts of all who heard it, I think maybe he came up with the name himself but I'm not sure.

I checked the strip, his priorities were "sells well" and "humorously ironic". He also got his own name from the first two letters of the acronym from Ennesby during a name brainstorming session.

We have no evidence of who named the Kitesfear, but no Tagon has yet to name a ship.

Yes, and that isn't a ship.

They counted it as one. "Scrapyard of Insufferable Arrogance (TT04)"

Granted, the same page also says "To be fair, Scrapyard was a mobile facility, and maybe shouldn't count. It doesn't matter."

Anyways, it's numbered, and he named it. Close enough.

Oh yeah, forgot about the drive and quarters he threw on it to make it technically a ship.

He talked about throwing on. I'm not sure there was time to ever turn it into a ship.

It was referred to later by name, in an official sounding manner. That still leaves some ambiguity sure, but it being designated TT04 later does not.

Ahem:

Does no one read the narrator comments anymore?

I quoted exactly that half a dozen posts ago. 8-)

And I stand by the same point: "close enough". The only question is whether the mobile facility had the technical alterations or not, if it did it would likely still be referred to as a mobile facility because it's role as a ship would still be insignificant. Or it didn't, and it wasn't a ship despite it's designation, and Tagon never technically named a ship since Kitesfear, if he even named that one.

Anyways, we're literally arguing semantics without even having all the information. I'm calling it here.

"Cindy" came from "Cindercone". "Cinder" + dragon = "Cinderwing"?
