I can understand why you would want this but remember not everyone wants to learn or can learn Klingon to know what a ship is.
I agree - I'm just going to keep calling it a "Raptor class" rather than some "dhd'R2ts'Edh4becy" class. Now, if they want to release the true Klingon name, or if people who actually speak Klingon *snicker* want to call it whatever - more power to ya. But understand that 99.9999999% of the people playing this game will have absolutely NO idea what you will be talking about when you mention a "dhd'R2ts'Edh4becy" class ship. They'll be "Huh!?" and you'll have to say "sigh- you know - a Raptor class", and they'll reply "ahhhhh - gotcha".

You use the word Gorn. Gorn is not English, it's a new word that was made up to refer to a creature in Star Trek. If you can learn and use that without any issues, there is no reason why you can't learn a new ship name. In fact it happens all the time in Trek.
Uhm ....

Okay, it is easier for me to spell Raptor than a word with other notation. It is the reason I didn't want to play a Klingon in the first place ... I don't know the language and I don't feel like being made fun of just because I don't know the language and its correct spelling. Sure I could learn it ... around my other major things to deal with in life but it is not a priority.

Sure they could give it a Klingon and Fed name, which could please both sides.

So please don't call me a hypocrite. My point was legit as was yours.

Just so you know: I'm guessing that a good bit less than a percent of the people playing on the Klingon side will actually speak Klingon, and out of the few that do only about ten percent will be so fluent that they use the language 24/7, and hopefully most of them won't beat you over the head for not speaking a the language, anyway. In other words, I don't think you should limit yourself based on this; play whichever side you think you'll enjoy more and trust that there will be a lot more people speaking German, French or Dutch than there will be speaking Klingon... ...even on a non-European server
