Before you have a Phoenix, you have to have something that's come back from the dead.........and so far, nothing from the closet has shown much life yet........

Wouldn't re-incarnation count, if Mork came back from the dead as a newer more powerful enity? You know like a Phoenix on steroids!!

My suggestion would be Arthur. In honor of the famous author and futurist Arthur C. Clarke.
Currently can't think of anyone who might have greater merit to have a server named after him.

Since someone suggested female names and dealing with science/sci-fi:

Starsha (good ole Starblazers / Yamato)
Ripley (Aliens) or Ellen (since her name is Ellen Ripley)

Please no more Mork & Mindy references ... sorry but I hated that show growing up - would have rather had the president on those nights.

Wouldn't mind Eridani, which has lots of references besides being a star.

Though truth be told, I'll just be happy with new working servers no matter their name.

I don't think any vote for Sagan from any member of the Sagan team is really valid. Heck lets just get the team with the most members and stuff the ballot box. Lets keep the names to Non-team names.

Heck
I say Azimov is a very good name

I'd like to propose "Lise" as a tribute to a woman who has fascinated me since I first learned a little about her; Lise Meitner. Lise was a physicist who never fully received the recognition she deserved in life. She broke several barriers for her gender and broke much ground in the field of nuclear physics. For all that she was a first rate scientist she also seems to have remained a truly decent human being in a competitive field where humanity sometimes seems to suffer.

If the new server is to be named as a tribute to anyone she would make a great candidate.

I know I already voted for Mearth, but I just thought of TK421 as well. It might not be very auspicious, being the Storm Trooper who was first absent from his post, then had a bad communicator...
