Maybe spell it backwards and add a couple exclamation points:

 

"Emag Ecaps!!"

 

Or do it like one of those computer passwords you think you will remember, but can't:

 

"56@$3 9@M3"

 

Or just call it "Space Game", so when people try to AA search or Google it, they will get 100's of unrelated posts ahead of it.

 

I votes for "sure, why not"

That's what I meant with "generic" name. :)

 

If you want to stick to the name, maybe you could use a prefix and/or suffix to make the name more unique.

In and of itself the title is a deterrent for me. For me to accept it it would have to have some sort of idea or concept to justify such a silly title.

I don't think that generic-ness is necessarily the problem. I think you could have an equally generic title that was preferable to me if it was less silly and more formal. .. Starship is a good name in my opinion and perfectly appropriate for what that game is, but pretty generic.
