Metroid Heroine Rides Through Space On A Ship With No Name

Metroid series lead and co-creator Yoshio Sakamoto teaches us something we never knew we never knew. Intergalactic bounty hunter and Metroid: Other M star Samus Aran's ship - which bears a striking resemblance to her space suit - doesn't have a name.

In the latest issue of Nintendo Power, Sakamoto answers the question "Does Samus's ship have a name?" with the following somewhat disappointing revelation. "We've always just called it 'starship'," he says. "Some people on the team even call it 'Samus's ship', but that's not exactly an official term."

How dull! And from a series that introduced us to the memorably named Screw Attack no less!

While Nintendo may not have an official name for Samus Aran's ride of choice, it presents a possible challenge. What can we name this thing?


    Since samus is a lady, we need a boy's name for it :)

    It's name should be Douglas.

    Screw ship



    Atticus, call it atticus



    I thought it was always just referred to as a Hunter-class gunship and wasn't given a name because she doesn't always use the same one?
