So I am told that we have the best and brightest creative brains in all of Star Citizen. So what would a good alternative name would be for Periwinkle.

Lets try to keep it semi-serious :P and no LOLAuroras I no likey.

Just throwing things into the airlock, to see what cries for mercy*

How about Enemy's Gate?
Or Hivemind?
or Dissent?
or Fist of Snoo?
or Roombas from Hell?

Aaand, they've all suffocated. Nevermind then.

I have a feeling that after some time in the game, the lore will give us the answer we want.

I'm assuming that Gold is gonna stick around. I'd personally suggest Red for the military faction and then Blue for the third division. This has resonance with Star Trek and the three primary shirt colors, as well as resonance with Star Wars' red and gold squadrons.

Since Redd Faction seems to like things more poetic, Blue could become Azure without getting too weird. That has resonance with the sky, "the sky's the limit", limitless, expansive, etc. Which sort of fits with a division that's meant to be "everything else".

Also, I think you mistook our synaptic collisions for "best and brightest creative brains" when in reality it's that our synapses are shaped like Auroras and are acting appropriately for Test pilots.

Hell, we could reorganize the entirety of ReddFaction to conform to Security, Science and Command.

Crimson sounds more violent, and that's what orangered is good at, right?

Well I hate to tell you....

I googled periwinkle to get a better idea of what it looks like. All I could see was Towelie

Seriously tho, if we have to keep with the color theme, how about Deep Blue? If we don't have to be color-oriented, I would definitely go with Command like Loteus said or just let the game pick it for us in lore like Montoya said. I'm also not opposed to Legion of Doom.


EDIT: I accidently some words and letters

Another idea:
Call OrangeRed the URF (United Redd(it) Fleet) (or armada)
Call Gold the URC (United Redd Corporation) (or conglomerate)
Call Periwrinkle the URS (United Redd Syndicate)
This keeps with the whole UEE theme the lore had got going on.

That's more fun to say than URS, why do they get the good one? :(

There's a certain logic to this madness.
They're combat orientated, so they get to say
WELCOME TO URF! and then punch our foes in the proverbial face.
URS is the last three letters of the french word "ours", which means bear. You know where the scariest kind of bear lives?

That's right. In the cold, hostile north. Where the Aurora Borealis generally manifests.

And yes, I did just make all this up.

And "URC!" will be the sound our foes make when they find that their lucrative mining stations have been bought out, system wide by the United Redd Corporation.

I've already seen some MOs over there incorporating colors into their logos and flags, so my guess is that there will be ReddFaction adherents who are color-bound.

I enjoy hearing non-color alternatives, though.

Crimson > Red
Cobalt and Azure are equally good-sounding to me, though Cobalt may be more obscure.
