Have you ever realised that V got the ship pronounciation thing all wrong? For example:
  • Hecate   {hek'-a-tee}
  • Galatea   {gal-uh-tee'-uh}

By the way, has Proteus ever been used for a ship or ship class?

I have a ship called the NTCv Proteus in one of my missions:

Is that a new model?

Actually it is just a name for a certain Deimos-class corvette. (this is a multiplayer mission)

 
I may not make one, but if I do make a new ship, do you mind if I use Proteus as the class name?

Go ahead; I can't copyright the name or anything.

If I'm not mistaken, [V] also pronounced these:

Boanerges: Bo-an-er-zees
Mjolnir: Mole-nir

Dunno if they're wrong.

Its Bo-an-ert-zees or Bo-an-erg-zees, not sure. Its Austrailian I think.. But its right..
Mjolnir is right. Thats the name of Thor's hammer...
