* Although many have a misconception that {{Turkey}} = {{Middle Eastern Coalition}} = {{Qurac}} = [[TheFundamentalist Fundamentalist Islam]] = [[CriticalResearchFailure Arab people]], Turkey is the 2nd largest military in NATO, is an ally of many Western nations and is trying really hard to join the EU. Therefore, if Turkey joined the Alliance instead of the Coalition, and survived as a nation to long enough, it could have built one of the 3 mystery sleeper ships. Possible names include the ''Boğaziçi'' (aside from being the Turkish name for the Bosporus, it also means "the straits"), ''Anatolya'', ''Marmara'', ''Kapadokya'', ''Çanakkale'', ''Asya'' (do remember that despite meaning "Asia", the Ancient Greeks invented the term "Asia" to refer to Anatolia, which is where modern Turkey is now), ''Ottoman'' or ''Bizans''; alternatively, they can stress their European-ness by naming their ship ''Thrakya'' (after Thrace, a region that is now part of European Turkey, Greece and Bulgaria). They could also name their ship after certain values such as ''Başı'' (means "leader"), ''Cumhuriyet'' (means "Republic"), ''Yurtta'' or ''Sulh'' ("Yurtta" means "home" and "Sulh" means "peace"; it is from a quote by [[OurFounder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk]] ''"Yurtta sulh, cihanda sulh"'' which translated to English means '' "Peace at Home, Peace in the World" '', which is a pretty powerful message).

** If the Alliance included {{Brazil}} (remember, Brazil's population is currently the 5th largest in the world), possible ship names include the ''Tupi'', ''Amazônia'', ''Pindorama'', ''Cruzeiro do Sul'' (the Portuguese name for the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crux Southern Cross]]) or even ''Progresso'' (from the motto ''Ordem e Progresso'').
** Despite its small population and size, even compared to Spain, {{Portugal}} has a long history of empire building and cultural influencing. Possible names for a Portuguese ship include ''Belem'', ''Ajuda'' (means "aid"), ''Tejo'' (after the Tagus, Portugal's longest river and a major part of its geography - do remember that the ''Rheinland'' takes its name from a district named after a prominent river), or ''Caravela'' (refers to Caravels, a type of sailing ship that formed the basis of the Portuguese naval, exploratory and trading prowess).

** One can't help the feeling that the French would launch ''3 ships'', namely the ''Liberté'', the ''Égalité'', and the ''Fraternité''.



** Possibly relating to its long history: the ''Roma'',



* If {{South Korea}} wasn't destroyed by {{North Korea}} or any other Coalition member, possible ship names include:
** Names for Korea such as ''Daehan'', ''Hanguk'' or ''Chosŏn''.
** Sacred places such as the obvious ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paektu_Mountain Baekdusan]]''.



** {{South Africa}} (and possibly the rest of southern Africa). We know South Africa was a member of the Alliance (one of your fellow pilots is South African). Their ship could have drawn its name from any African tribe - the ''Bantu'', ''Zulu'', ''Xhosa'' or even ''Boer'' (despite referring to mainly Dutch-descended White South Africans, "Boer" itself means "farmer", which is good for representing a proud agricultural heritage both on Earth and {{recycled in space}}), for example, or alternatively after historical events or places such as the ''Voortrek'', ''Drakensberg'', or if you want {{black comedy}}, the ''Soweto''.

** Like the French example of Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité, one could realize the symbolism for Spain to colonize the [[RecycledInSpace New World IN SPACE!]] using ships named [[UsefulNotes/ChristopherColumbus Niña, Pinta and Santa Maria]].

* Finally, there are the Scandinavian countries. Assuming they didn't get the {{Kill em All}} treatment, stayed with the Alliance, and didn't join up with Rheinland, their are 3 glaringly obvious names for their sleeper ship the ''Scandia'', the ''Víkingr'' or the ''Norden''.

''Norden''. Or they can use themes of discovery from [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erik_the_Red Erik the Red]] or [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leif_Erikson Leif Erikson]] such as ''Vinland'', ''Grønland'' (some {{black comedy}} here because when Erik the Red discovered a mostly uninhabitable landmass, he named it {{Greenland}} to trick people into settling there, therefore this situation can be {{RECYCLED IN SPACE}}) ''Leifsbúðir'', or ''Skrælingjar'' (refers to Native Americans in Greenland and the Leifsbúðir area which is now modern day Newfoundland, Canada; this is in the same manner that Native American tribes lend their names to various items and places in the US and Canada).

** India. If it didn't join the Coalition, India would probably have a ship, maybe the ''Hindi'', ''Mughal'', or even ''Ahimsa'' or ''Swaraj. However, if India was a member of the Alliance, it almost certainly would have fielded warships, so it probably did join the Coalition.

It could have been named the ''Polaris'', the ''Acadia'' or something similar. But given that Liberty has a Battleship Yukon, it is possible that their small population forced the Canadians to join Liberty.

In Starlancer the player (if they managed to get best results) manages to become the Alliance best fighter ace, who squadron manages to save the Alliance from destruction and even turn the fortune of the war against the Collation, liberating the outer planets collanies of the Solar System and may of been on their way to liberating the inner solar system. Yet the Prolouge of Freelance seems to ignore this and shows the Alliance barely holding out in Pluto buying enough time to build generational ships that would be sent to another star system. In my view I think Freelance Prolouge is where the player got killed fairly early in Starlancer as a result the war never turned in the Alliance favour
