      We also have a river and a mountain (or ridge, can't see the other side yet) to name. Any ideas?

      For the mountain, I thought "The Height of Logic"

        Oh, it's a lake! Thanks for the suggestions btw - I like Loch Linux.
        Another suggestion for a mountain: Ben Byte

              i like some of the default sea base names:
              Gamma Breakwater
              Alpha Basin
              Delta Trench (though possibly for some ocean trench )

              Eta Ridge (ripped off from default base names - works for pholus ridge though)

              (no, the following aren't ripped off from a newtork node custom faction )
              Serenity Hall
              Collective Mind
              Collective Conciousness

                Drogue, is it Zetaria or Zetaris, and Akiria or Akiris you want in a next poll? Or should all four be included?

                  Not all 4, because that will split votes too much IMHO, which of the 2 in each set do you think is better? I would go for Akiria and Zetaris, but then I am a little biased Pick one of each (preferably with different suffixes).

                    Ahh, base/landmark suggestions, time for the corny CS jokes

                    For a mineral intensive base, or maybe the crater:
                    Core Dump

                    If there were fault lines or that unused valley landmark:
                    Segmentation Fault (if too long: Seg Fault)

                    Two bases on opposite ends of our colony:
                    The Heap
                    and
                    The Stack

                    Any ol' base:
                    Gamma Ceti Ceti
                    Gamma Delta Beta
                    Recursive Nirvana
                    /usr/bin/EvilPlan
                    TheUOPSucks ( , j/k )

                    Non-CS-joke base names:
                    DBTSverse Portal (It was suggested, but I must suggest it again!)
                    Deidre's Network Node (probably too long, shorten to Deidre's Node?)

                      They're all good, but these 2 especially EvilPlan will have to be used, as a big production base in case we want a couple of PBs, just in case The UoPSucks should be the first captured UoP base (and there will be many of those )

                        and adjacent to Deirdre's Nodes could be:

                        Morgan's Metempsychosis and Lal's Lobotomy

                            Just checking to be sure : Are these names just jokes, or should I include "TheUoPSucks", "Deirdre's Nodes", "Yang's Yang" to the list.

                            In any case. I suggest "Archaic Aftermath" as another captured UoP base name.

                                Maniac: The UoP ones are for captured bases, so not yet. I would say no ATM. Archaic's Aftermath gets my vote for a captures UoP base. Hive ones, Yang's Yang and Yang's Ying seem great
