I'm having the same problem. I've tried searching every file in the STO directory, as well as the entire Windows registry, for my old username. No dice.
EDIT: I also looked for a per-user and system-wide AppData directory (under C:\Users\username and C:\ProgramData), and I couldn't find and STO data there at all.
EDIT 2: Gaaaah! Further frustration: When I load GameClient.exe directly, rather than running Star Trek Online.exe, it shows my correct, new username. When I excitedly reloaded via the STO Launcher, it reverted back to the old name. Perhaps this is an issue on Cryptic's servers, where it sends you the username at some point during the login process. This seems to be an edge case for those of us who converted from Cryptic accounts to PWE accounts.
