But as someone just mentioned, you can't use the -A or -B registry additions to give ships the same name and registry.

U.S.S. Gibraltar, NCC-99256
U.S.S. Gibraltar, NCC-99256-A

This does not work.
I guess I will have to check my ships when I log back into the game on Thursday, because I DO have my ships named "***-A" and "***-B". If I recall correctly, I was even able to use the suffix letter on the registry number according to canon. I ALMOST guarantee that I'm right...I won't be back in-game until then, so for now I'm only "almost certain".

EDIT: Now that I made it all the way through the posts, I am doing it the way suggested above, by adding the letter to both the name AND the registry number. Sorry...that's what I get for posting before completely reading.
