The idea of a "Call Sign" has existed for almost as long as there has been aviation, from the pilots of Earth's World Wars to modern Pelican pilots.

A call sign is a nickname adopted by a military pilot for use in name tags, planes and radio conversations. Though strictly unofficial, these names are adopted almost like a second name for the person they are attached to and thus, they are usually given by other pilots or coworkers. Each name varies and the reasons they are given vary as well. Several characters in Halo are assigned call signs.

A call sign is a nickname given to Starfleet fighter pilots. The call sign is frequently used in radio conversations, and is typically noted on the sides of a pilot's assigned fighter.

It is considered bad form to give oneself a call sign. Typically, call signs are given by one's co-workers.

Roslyn earned the call sign "Firecracker" from Johnathan Bucyrus for her fiery temper, and for her skills in basic fighter training. Roslyn subsequently gave Johnathan the call sign "Bulldog." (USS Baldwin: "Slow Burn", "Wild Roses")

Sonya Fiehrer earned the call sign "Moondance" after Johnathan caught her leaving a dance studio. Her call sign was posted conspicuously on the side of her fighter. (USS Baldwin: "Wild Roses")

Melora Lexis obtained the call sign "Hat Trick" by destroying three Cardassian fighters with only a single missile. She had previolsly received the call sign "Posh" for letting slip that she was looking forward to a perm and a manicure following jungle survival training. (Starship Independence: "A Dish Best Served Cold")

Callsigns were also given to Starfleet SEALs, and the members of the Eagle's Nest Squadron. Justin Shive had the callsign "Hawk," while Timothy Sinclair's callsign was "Draco." (Star Trek: Pendragon)
