Renaming Bridge Officers
(Reposting here after realising I posted in the wrong forum).

I tried to rename a couple of my Bridge Officers last night only to get a message saying that only BOs purchased in the C-Store can be renamed. Has this been disabled or is it a bug? (I remember doing it before).

Also my Captain's full name seems to have disappeared.

Did you already rename them once?

Seems to me you can rename any bridge officer once. After that, it's final.

It costs 3000 merit to rename a bridge officer after the first rename.

Ah, that could be it. I only recently got over 3000 merits, and hadn't tried renaming them in a while.

3000 merits seems pretty steep just to rename them. I'm a LTCDR 7 and I have just over 3000 merits. At that rate I'll be probably a Commander before I have another 3000.

Guess the moral of the story is to make sure you get their name right the first time.

That was the thing, it didn't tell me I couldn't beacuse I didn'y have enough credits, but that I just couldn't.

Anyway, I'll have another go tonight.

Why is renaming bridge officers so expensive?? 4500 merits for short name nad last name, wtf?? I typed the name wrong for one of my bridge officers when renaming and now I'm stuck with it. It looks like it'd probably be cheaper to get another bridge officer, make them look the same and save up skill points again.

Yeah. The good news is I've worked out how to do it. The bad news is it's so damn expensive!

I want to rename two BOs and it's going to cost 9000 merits! That's more than 180 missions worth! (at 50 merits reward per mission). That's ridiculous!

Completely. I think I also lost 3000 merits or so renaming my original ship because despite being able to have -A suffixes in a ship's registry you don't seem to be able to name two ships of yours the same thing.
