* ''VisualNovel/StarshipPromise'' is crammed full of star- and space-themed names, in keeping with its SpaceOpera / RaygunGothic style. Just among the main cast there's TheCaptain Orion Akatsuki (for bonus points, "''akatsuki''" is Japanese for "dawn"), starship pilot Atlas, and Empire captain Antares, as well as more general space references like Nova and Comet. The only main character who doesn't have some kind of space-themed name is Jaxon Silva, the bounty hunter.
