I need a name for my game and I'm too cheap to hire a creative brain

What would be a good name for this?
- this will be a serious game. needs to have a seriously looking name (no "captain space ho")
- well, domain name needs to be available to register
- it would be nice to have the name use some references to old scifi books and tv shows.. Maybe Asimov's Foundation series or anything by A.C. Clarke. I love hidden references to things that only geeks like me understand.
- I dreamed up one night "Across the Sea of Suns" but it's kinda long and whaddaya know there is already a book by that name.
So can you fire up some ideas?
The winner will get a large strawberry ice cream from me, and a decorative wall plaque certifying that the author is indeed the actual creator of said name.

... and I can't think of a geeky yet good name at all. I think the two are mutually exclusive at this point.

Also, I'm trying really hard to avoid comparison or parallels with existing space/trading sims... it helps keep everything pure and logic instead of copying existing game logic from others.
How about just good names then?
