You people do realize that the ship you give to your name is the official name registered on the hull? The -X suffixed do NOT go on the ship name, but on the ship registry number. So it's "U.S.S Whatever, NCC-YYYYYY-X".

Take a close look at the hull of the Enterprise-D and see if it's written USS Enterprise-D.

I decommission my old ship by renaming it, as I won't be flying it anymore anyhow.
Then I tack a letter into the box provided on the new ship.

he is right but you have to use a different name, now that I know it annoys the purists I may have to name my ship:


USS Name-A-2-34-901

I have two ships named Massachussetts one with a big giant B on the end even though the B is in the registry as well.

It sucks and needs to be fixed.

I thought names wernt unique at all, maybe they are within a player's career. I know I'm not the only one out there with Trafalgar so you defo can with other players.

But yes, seriously, nothing goes on the ships name, just the registry number.

Might have been my ship you saw there :p

I find it odd that other peaple can have the same ship name as you, but you cant have two ships with the same name.

I was going to name my ships this way, but I just decided to pick thematic names. I've got a post-it on my desk with the names of all my escort and science vessels.

Also: renaming your ships after the first time costs starfleet merits, doesn't it?
