As did I, since Stheno is already used but also styled from the Medusa.

Stheno
PLEASE not Stheno. That's just going to cause massive confusion about which GTB Stheno we're talking about all the time. It'd be like Inferno purposely going out of its way to confuse people.

I voted for Cetus because I like the way it sounds, though Euryale does make sense.  I'm against Medusa Mk. II because the ship doesn't look like an improvement on the Medusa so much as a sister or cousin to the Medusa, and because the "Mk. II" epithet only works if the name is short or can be shortened without assonance (i.e. Herc Mk. II or Herc II, opposed to Medusa Mark II (a mouthful) or Medusa Two).

I guess Medusa Mark II would be kind of a mouthful...but it could be nicknamed...the Deuce? ;)

Awesome model, btw :yes:

if there is any consistancy with the Shivans, it's their lack of consistancy - -Norbert-

Voted Euryale. It fits in well, Stheno is taken, Landcaster and Medusa MKII are both godawful names, and the rest fall inbetween, they don't fit and/or don't sound too great.
