# 1 Ship Names
02-07-2010, 11:47 AM
Hey guys, Im a big fan of this game and all of the Trek lore theyve put into it...

However, it seems that ship names aren't unique. I ran into someone the other day who had the same ship name and that bummed me out. I even have 3 different ships under two different characters, and 2 different ships under the same character with the same name (to try to test this out).

This is bogus!

Is this a bug or just a poorly designed feature that will be super hard to fix?

It's designed that way. I get how it can be annoying but I think it'd be more annoying trying to figure out a name for my starship after there's already been a million created.

Would you rather spend several hours trying to find a unique ship name because all the cool ones you thought up were already taken?

Or would you like seeing USS CooName48339, USS CoolName88379, USS CoolName23828869, ad infinitum?

Yeah, it'd be more of a drag to have to make up a random name that is meaningless when you really wanted to use a historical figure as your inspiration.

The USS Bonvoyager

I might actually use this seriously lame name for my Intrepid.

But I can see why we can reuse the same names. After all we get Registries.

NX-990210

See what I did there?
