I read this as a complaint that too many people are playing the game.

Also RE: Inappropriate ship names. Unless a specific name has been added to the automatic filter, there's nothing stopping people from making ships with inappropriate names. However, there is also nothing protecting them from being reported. If you see a name you think is inappropriate, report it.

You know as well as I do this is exactly what the distinction you quoted is about.

I name my ships after cannon ships all the time. One thing I would really like is the ability to create in-game a "story" of your ship and its name like you can do for your character.

I have the USS Majestic, a Galaxy class named for the USS Majestic (NCC-31060) that was destroyed during Operation Return.

I have an Excelsior, USS Fearless, intended to be the same ship as the USS Fearless (NCC-14598) from TNG.

The current ship I fly most of the time is a Sao Paulo class ship named USS Firebrand. Named for the USS Firebrand (NCC-68723) that was destroyed at Wolf 359.

The thing with policies such as these is that they're incredibly hard to moderate. These guys can't even get to a serious support ticket in under two weeks, I doubt they have the time to punish every idiot who names their ship the USS MakeStuffUp

Well, if you go to DS9, ESD or Sirius Sector Space, you will not be able to see anything due to the absolute mountain of names being displayed all over your screen. I'd like to fly around without needing to look at my mini map for basic navigational purposes.

Like I said, you can turn all of that off in Sector Space.

And if I recall correctly (which means I freely admit I could be wrong) you can have different settings for Sector Space and System Space.

How about you spec all phasers and photon and then I'll name mine USS Non-Cannon Ship and I'll spec one of every color weapon. Then we can duke it out.
