I must say, with whatever system they use, thank cryptic that viable names aren't determined by what other players have already chosen.

I know anything to do with religion is also verboten. There is a religious publication that uses the word "monitor" in the title. As monitor itself is a generic term ( a lot of news publications also use it in their titles), it might just be an oversight on their part.

That's interesting. So if I start a religious magazine and call it "Enterprize," would they start blocking those? :p

I don't even know if that's the reason, but you're welcome to try. I for one, will convert. :p

I called one of my Klingon Raptors the "IKS Potemkin."

Heck, we even had a "steps of Odessa" sequence after a moderator teleported me to Sol.

It is amazing how many tries to read I.K.S. Hedoth as I.K.S. He Doth...
As in "Speak of the devil and he doth appear".

Agreed. Personally I think purposely mis-spelling the name of your ship just so you can have something called the Enterprise/Voyager/Defiant is just circumventing a rule set in place by the development team of the game.

Also, it makes you look like a complete tool (especially considering that the ACTUAL Enterprise is still in service).

Does EXITPRISE count?
