1) Why is every species except humanity named after their planet (or vice versa)? Romulans come from Romulus. Vulcans come from Vulcan. Andorians come from Andoria (or, occasionally, Andor - w00t inconsistancies!). The Tellarites come from Tellar. Denobulans come from - you guessed it - Denobula! Presumably, the Borg originated on Borgulus Prime or something. As a courtesy to our future alien neighbours, I propose we rename our planet Humania. Or maybe Humania III, for extra clarity.
Actually.... this is a flaw of perception. Those are the names that HUMANS use for those planets. The Romulans call Romulus Rihan.
I can haz joystick!
MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
