The Interstellar Alliance Navy assigned a pennant number to all of it's ships, a letter-number combination that identify their ships by type and by individual ship within a type. As an example, the starcruiser IAS Excalibur has the pennant number C-37, designating it as the 37th cruiser constructed by the Alliance Navy. The system is as follows.

  • B: Battleship
  • BC: Battlecruiser
  • C: Cruiser
  • CE: Exploratory Cruiser
  • CS: Strike Cruiser
  • D: Destroyer
  • F: Frigate
  • FE: Exploratory Frigate
  • FS: Corvette
  • P: Patrol Ship
  • PC: Patrol Craft
  • G: Gunship/Gunboat
  • CV: Carrier/Fleet Carrier
  • CVE: Escort Carrier
  • CVT: Training Carrier
  • X: Experimental ship (may be amended with additional letters based on what type of experimental ship it is, such as CX for experimental cruiser)
  • AK: Cargo Ship/Transport
  • AO: Tanker/Fuel Transport
  • AH: Hospital Ship
  • AT: Tug
  • ATS: Salvage Ship
  • S: Shuttlecraft
  • SC: Cargo Shuttle

Separate from the pennant system utilized by starships, the Alliance also has a system for designation of types of small craft such as shuttlecraft and fighters and other auxiliary craft. Unlike the starship pennant numbers, these are to identify type and model of craft rather than to identify a specific craft.

  • F: Fighter
  • FA: Fighter Attack
  • FB: Fighter Bomber
  • FR: Fighter Reconnaissance
  • FS: Fighter Scout
  • B: Bomber
  • EA: Electronic Attack
  • S: Shuttle
  • SC: Cargo Shuttle
  • SR: Shuttle Reconnaissance
