# 1 Unable to Change Name?
02-06-2010, 12:30 PM
I'm sure this has been asked already, and I apologize for asking again.

Why are we unable to change our Character's, Bridge Officers', and Ship's name?
For character and bridge ifficer it says you have to purchase it from the C-Store. See Link.

But it doesn't say anything ship wise.

I don't want to have to delete my ship to give its name to its successor.

Any thoughts?

I think to change your short name, you can do it with $3000 or C-Store when it becomes available.

Bridge Officers names are supposed to be changeable without access to the C-Store. However, last time I checked this was bugged. This is a known bug and should be fixed at some point. There's a post somewhere on the boards of StormShade specifically mentioning that Bridge Officers names should be changeable in game and that they will fix this.

Now that I thought about it some more, I didn't give one of my characters a long name at creation because it said this could be changed at any time (I think) and was optional. So I'm guessing I misunderstood this, right?

I personally think that 3000 Starfleet Merits to change your ship name is a bit much and Merits are not exactly easy to get hold of. I made one simple mistake when naming my second ship and clicked ok without realising what I had done until it was to late. My first ship was named USS Valencia NCC 270184 and the second ship was supposed to be USS Valencia NCC 270184 - A but I accidently named it Velencia which was my mistake but can not be corrected without 3000 Starfleet Merits!

I changed the name of my starter ship a couple days ago and it didn't charge me anything. Do you get one free name change like you do with the Bridge Officerfree uniform/name change?

Yes, one free name change on the ship, one free cosmetic/appearance change on the ship. Same as with the officers.
