I just put an -A at the end of both my ship name and designation. That seems to be the naming convention used in the shows anyway.

Really I do not understand why the USS Name-X is such a big deal to everyone, when as we all quite know, there are the USS Profanity out there. I am trying to stay awa from the flame war that is canon, but shouldn't the canonist be more worried about that stuff, than the -X on the name? Een aside from canon, why do I have to look at the USS Pantystain?

Don't you just love it when people try to tell you how to play a game you paid for?

Take a close look at the hull of the Enterprise-D and see if it's written USS Enterprise-D.
I didn't know. Thanks for the info.

You know what is really frakking stupid about this game though? That any other player can copy my ship name to the letter, but I cannot do the same damned thing. That is a completely stupid design decision...

Unless they want it that way. seriously, let people name their ships the way they want to.

People are also putting Fleet Tags in their names to help ID in PvP matches.

OP might be seeing this, also. If Cryptic allowed a way to display Fleets easilly, you probably would not see the tags added to names.

But than again, if Cryptic would fix the pile of crap Fleet UI, alot of things would be better.
