Lost the Cool Ship in a dramatic scene? Let's just get another one with the same name.
Seen It a Million Times, Do We Have This One?? Open to suggestions for other names. Fans of Star Trek will be familiar with this one. You have your Cool Ship, where the Command Roster and The Squad keep all of their stuff and go on their adventures. You go through so many cool things, before you are forced to Abandon Ship during a WHAM Episode. Of course, Death Is Cheap for vehicles even moreso than for it is for people, especially if they are not a Living Ship of some sort. What better way to get over the loss of your ship than to replace it with another ship, oftentimes identical in every way, right down to the name. Some small nod might be made to the fact that it is a new ship by adding a letter or number to the end of the name. Could also be seen as a vehicular form of Legacy Character. Often Truth in Television, but not with such consistency as it happens in fiction. Compare to Dead Guy Junior and Replacement Goldfish.
