Yes, this makes perfect sense to name your salvation starship in this manner.
Yeah, that was news to me too. Explains a lot, thanks you Sage!

At the time we were finishing SC2 for 3DO the president of Crystal Dynamics was Strauss Zelnick. He is or has been one of the biggest of wigs in the entertainment industry.

He was not a particularly warm individual, but he was paying the bills at the time. As I recall, someone at Crystal Dynamics sneaked onto his computer and made it make a cash register sound whenever he got an e-mail. It took him a long time to stop it from doing that.

Another piece of the puzzle falls into place.

I googled his picture. Hee hee! He's got a big chin and blowdried hair. He looks like stereotypical corporate villain from a Hollywood movie. If I was working for him, I'd be afraid he was going to use me as a host organism for some sort of nasty alien.
