When I had BD Armoury installed, all my crewed fighter jets bore the prefix "MODeM" - Meat Operated Death Machine. 

 

OK, it's not that great.

I was quite proud of the S.E.A.L -- the Single Ejection Affordable Launcher, a recoverable SSTO with no decouplers but the one for the payload.

Of course, it couldn't carry a very large payload, so I built the S.E.A.L.I.O.N. The Single Ejection Affordable Launcher Inconvenient Object editioN.

I seem to recall using WALRUS as an acronym for something in that same career game, but I can't for the life of me remember what it stood for.

Can anyone help me with a spaceplane SSTO called I.S.O.C.E.L.E.S.?  I can't get anywhere

An acronym for it, you mean?

I can't come up with much for the last half, but I like 'Integrated Systems Orbital Carrier' for the first part.

Hmm...maybe 'Integrated Systems Orbital Carrier Endures Launch Extremely Successfully'? It's optimistic at least.

BobDown We won’t be able to open the passenger doors!
 

Bill You don’t need doors. We load Neophyte Orbital Material Scientists (NOMS) up this ladder through the Manned Access Way (MAW), then they slide into the General Utility Transport (GUT) section for the ride to orbit. After Jeb docks with the station, they slide out the rear port here.

JebDownPass That seems... wrong somehow.

TOSSER = Tenebris Orbital Science Station (erratic rotation). For some reason some of the RCS jets fire, causing the station to spin, whenever the RCS is activated. I have the interns working on a replacement module so I can fix this issue as soon as possible.

TOFPFS = Trouble On Faraway Planets Fixer Ship

NOMS (same as @Torquimedes) = Nano Orbital Manuvering System, which is used to assemble stations like TOSSER up there. Its an unnamed RCS assembly probe.

Sounds like you have trim applied.

(Alt or shift) - X to clear that depending on your system.

MPUS: Multi-Purpose Utility Shuttle, a mash-up of an overgrown Turbo-dactyl (custom X-20 Dyna-soar) with a Sarnus 1/1c from BDB, ala Saturn-Shuttle.

FUSS: Flexible Utility Space Shuttle: STS built using Cormorant Aeronology.

OCV: Orbital Crew Vehicle, originally based off of Orion, became CST-100 after Puff was added.

OREO: Orbital Rescue & Exploration Outpost, could be used as a space station or as an upgrade to the OCV Service Module.

Thanks but its not that (i actually didn't know about that feature) but its a persistant issue. Whenever I load the vessel it does it.
