One Comment:

  1. Cmdr Ned McReady

    When naming a cat, the final choice should always be something you are happy to shout out of the back door to get them to come in.

    In this case, there is a Hobbes theme, and this could be complicating factor in terms of the first spec point. Consider how comfortable you would be shouting:

    • “Bossman” or “Jazz”; to invoke other original Wing Commander pilots
    • “Etienne ‘Doomsday’ Montclair”; another Wing Commander pilot, but with Elite Dangerous resonance. You can then just shorten to ‘Etienne’ if the cat demonstrates disturbing tendencies
    • “Ralgha nar Hallas”; The real name of Hobbes in Wing Commander (note: neighbours may attempt the Heimlich maneuver on you if shouted repeatedly.)
    • “Ovens”
