I got a starship named after her
[the frame was my idea and a few bucks at the store].


She thought it was sweet, but wants to know when it gets signed by Cole and Petrick. I told her "At Origins, someday".

Next is to do some decals up for an Aux-CA mini to match and have the ship on the game board someday.

ALright, Will... now you're making me do it.

My wife's cert is in a shadowbox along with the kit-bashed ACX. I'll photo it this weekend and upload.

Oh boy! I see another revenue stream for ADB...

I can just hear SVC's voice on the radio commercial now...

We have actually be doing those (as a joke) for a year or so.

We originally announced it (as a joke) for $29.95 but I don't know what Leanna charges now. Not much. She usually just emails people a PDF that people print at Kinkos.

When I ordered it was $2.

Mine actually showed up laserprinted on nice paper (included in a larger order of CapLog and minis I made). There were two versions actually, one with just her first name (which is all I stupidly put on the order form) and one (correctly) using her first and last names. As usual, Leanna is smart enough to see through male mental limitations. =)

If you ask for the printed copy, she sends it. Most just ask for the PDF.

Are those names going to be printed in The FC rulebok that holds the WYN aux cruisers under known names? Smile

Also, if it's a WYN ship then why does it say USS?

Because other than us "uber-geeks", no one else would know what WCS stood for - but everyone knows "USS"

One might wonder about the state of a relationship in which the partner making the purchase asked for the spouse's name to be used as a code-name for an Andromedan Dominator...


"What, you didn't make me a Devastator?"

WYN Cluster ships are named after females... and you can only get the standard Auxillaries named after a spouse /SO; so that means the aforementioned double entendre' cannot be applied in this case.

Sorry. Crying or Very sad

But, if you want to see how mauch fun can be had with the standard "Name a Ship for your Spouse", check out this thread and look at the WCS Evey!

Actually, I didn't think of the double entendre - I was thinking more in terms of the overall balance of egos within a given relationship!


I should have stuck with the Devastator, after all...

Not yet. Other things have taken precedence... but it's still on the list of things to do.
