The other is called Just Read the Instructions, and is also a character from The Player of Games.

There's a new drone ship being built that's supposed to be called "A Shortfall of Gravitas", which is almost, but not quite, taken from Look to Windward. The GSV in that book is actually named Experiencing A Significant Gravitas Shortfall.

Personally I'd have gone for the GCU; Not Wanted On Voyage.
