No because "Enterprise" is protected. You either cant pick it or will be forced to change it. And frankly who'd want to look like that big of an idiot anyway?

So, everyone will be able to make a Sancta, only the rest of it will be different like Sancta@Bob or Sancta@Bobby

Just don't want you to think otherwise and then find someone with the same name as you and be like WHAT!?

Name after the @ is your forum and global handle that is used in all cryptic games ie yours would be randomname@SanctaBellator

Actually I asked this same question, but the forum got wiped.

Basically the part after the @ is your forum name. So you could have 3 toons, called Joe, Bill and Anne, and they will all ahve Joe@yourforumname, Bill@yourforumname, etc.

Oh no, please do not! That was not my intent and I will be honest, I didn't know this either up until several days ago.

The @name is your unique identifier in the game. For example, mine is @Captain Zebular so every character I make will end in @Captain Zebular - this is to allow everyone to have the name they wish for their characters and still give a sense of security to know that you cannot be easily fooled by a player jumping characters for like scamming and abuse, and the like.

It also allows your friends to add @name to their list and be able to communicate with you no matter what character you are on. So yes, choose your friends list wisely.

The @name is your handle. Only you have it and no one else. It is typically your forum posting name. Any character you create on the startrek server becomes character@forumhandle (in which forumhandle does not change and annot be changed my the player)
