Not to thread necro, but I thought it would be better to add to an existing thread.
Now that Season 2 is out, we have the ability to change the emblems on our ships, currently between UFP/KDF and Fleet Emblems.
Adding an I.S.S. ship prefix to the C-Store, along with an I.S.S. fleet emblem and/ or I.S.S. decal set (especially for the saucers, so players can add the emblem to the front of the saucer) would be a nice addition.
I think we should be able to change the U.S.S. part,
that would make mine the S.S. Krizonar
like the S.S. Azura, simple enough, right?
perhaps add an option to change "U.S.S." to a different 2 or 3, perhaps 4 letter acronym.
It would add to roleplaying a bit. It's not drastically important, but it'd be kinda cool.
i agree although i love the ISS has a prefix previously mention in another thread having deferent prefix like SS or ECS (Earth Cargo Ship) would be a great adition but even then ud have to look in to new civilian ships. i don't think ECS Shamwoow would look good on a galaxy class starship
If you mess with USS then you mess with star trek. star trek was invented by the USA thats why it has the Naval Prefix of USS for United States Ship. That should never change. I dont want to see an HMS Whatever flying around cause Britian didnt create star trek nor was it resonsible for creation of the first warp capable ship. I agree that Redenberry should have come up with a different prefix like SFS, Star Fleet Ship, he descided to base it off of the Naval Fleet of the country he lived in. If another country created Star Strek you can bet all ships would have their national warship's prefix. Another stolen Prefix is NCC, NC is the prefix for a Civilian Private Aircraft of some sorts. They added another C at the end cause it looked better then descided it stood for Naval Construction Contract.
Coming up with all kinds of different prefixes is stupid unless they add other kinds of ships. There's two kinds: Warships and Civilian Ships. So only two Prefixes are needed: USS and SS. Any other prefixes would be noncanon, and would upset alot of ppl.
