I suppose naming a shuttle Icarus would be in bad taste.

Personally, I like Pegasus.

nope, the only 5 shuttles where:
Atlantis | Challenger | Columbia | Discovery | Endeavour

I think we should call the next one SpaceWagon, either that or Cannon Fodder.

Although it isn't space worthy, we do have a space shuttle named Enterprise.

If NASA wants more money for funding, they should allow our new spacecraft to be sponsored by a corporation.

And in latest news SS Coca Cola was blasted into a whole new galaxy by SS Pepsi earlier today.

I'm thinking the "Golden Palace Galactic Cruiser" has a nice ring to it.

The space shuttle needs a little more testosterone in it's name. :)

They'll probably holler back to the days of Apollo...the names of some of the Orbiters.

Odyssey, Columbia (I know it was already a name), Intrepid, Antares, Falcon, Orion, Challenger (Again, was a name).

It'd be nice to see the Odyssey(Ccommand/Service Module for Apollo 13, the one that blew) name put back into a good place...dumbasses will probably clammor for names like "Enterprise", "Galactica", "Voyager" etc...

Mind you, "Defiant" isn't a bad name...nor is "Saratoga".

Next-Generation Starship:

CSI Viking: A destiny-class starship first launched in 2033. It's operational range was from L1 to L4, surveying the area between Earth and Mars. It's weapons system (which were kept secret from both the public and most of the board members) consisted of a forward mounted magnetic railgun and two aft vulcan cannons. The Viking was classified by the U.N. as a space weapon and subsequently forced to be decomissioned.
