'first c/6 spaceship to be found that does not involve a dragon'?

One of the c/6 orthogonal ships in the pattern collection at [1] is dated March 2006 and doesn't bear any resemblance to the dragon. Lewis Patterson 22:16, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Good find, thanks. Seems the Life Lexicon was last updated in February 2006, so I was unaware of that pattern. I've fixed that sentence, and changed the wording to include orthogonal, since a c/6 diagonal spaceship was also found before this one. Nathaniel 23:30, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Naming the ship and wick (IDK where to post it) - Pooping Alien 06:45, 26 March 2012 (CDT)

The wick looks like a face in one of its stages. Faces or Heads for the wick, Headstacker for the ship, "alien hat" for the pushalong. Note: This wick is unique in that its REAR has to be stabilized instead of its front as in ants

Agreement with 'Pooping Alien'

This description makes sense, but I was thinking more along the lines of "turtle pushing rock" (or "tortoise pushing rock", so as not to be confused with turtle. Maybe just Tortoise.) The face in the front spark is intriguing, though. "Tortoise pushing face" wouldn't go over that well with the pattern's discoverer, but I see where you're getting at. I might request an official name change if we can decide on something.

...not quite

I'd prefer "lawnmower" for the spaceship. After all, it can run over some still lifes without getting destroyed. Freywa 03:38, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

other name

Hammerhead? It eats smaller fish (still lifes), and in the pictured phase it kinda looks like a hammerhead shark, with the strange shaped head, and the fins — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yimmy (talkcontribs)

I like this idea very much Codeholic (talk) 07:28, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
As flipper77 pointed out, a pattern with such name already exists :( Codeholic (talk) 23:02, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
Maybe just shark, then? It still has the fins and stuff so kinda fits Yimmy (talk) 18:56, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
