Re: Your Star Trek Online Screenshots!

Sadly, the Yorktown couldn't cut it against Romulans and Remans, so she's now a museum ship. Bring the kids; they can have their picture taken with a cardboard cutout of Captain Mason. Meanwhile, here's my new ride...



But maybe not for much longer. At the rate I'm going, I'll be a captain by next week.

Edit: Heck, it didn't last through the night. Feast your eyes on the Yorktown-A...



Always had a soft-spot for the Excelsior-class. The ship that no one wanted to fly but no one could get rid of.

Looks like it says U.S.S. Essex to me.

Not yet. But it will be with one of the upcoming updates. New ships always show up first as NPC.
As will the Andorian warship we saw Shran captaining.

That's is what it says. I wanted to avoid the whole -A, -B, -C thing so I named it (and the cruiser I had) after other ships I've used in fan fic, but since I picked up the Excelsior on a lark (meaning while intoxicated) I figured why not.

It rather bothers me that you can't give your ships the same names whilst adding the A, B, C, D, Etc to the registry. Sure, in the show a new letter wasn't added until an Enterprise was destroyed/completely decomissioned, but I feel that they should afford us an exception. Some of us like to keep our older ships for silly sentimental reasons... I know I do.

After all, it's not like we can have all the ships running around at the same time to confuse people. (I like re-using names, too: Star Hammer, Tannhauser Gate, Queen Emeraldas)

My latest acquisition:



The USS Venture-A. Mind you, it's only the -A because when I entered in Venture by itself, the game told me it was restricted. Odd.

I have a new boat as well. The USS Sinclair isn't a canon ship, but most definitely a cannon ship. She is named after Jeffrey Sinclair and has a Minbari Captain. Consider it a little exchange program.

Here she is right before her maiden voyage:

The naming thing isn't very consistent in STO, you can't have the name Venture but you can still use ship names like Endeavour, Hood, Challenger or even Kelvin.

Kelvin I can understand, as it's JJtrek, something they said they wouldn't consider canon, though they've absorbed that awful jjtrek crossover comic into STO continuity.

The other two, I dunno. Possibly because several different ships had the name Hood from tiny science ships to large cruiser types and the Challenger was in the alternate reality only?

Re: Your Star Trek Online Screenshots!

I believe the solution is simple. Could it be, that the name venture is used by the developers themselves somewhere in the game? If not they probably plan to. The other ships are not yet in use somehow and so their names aren't restricted.
Imagine receiving a call from another ship: "USS Venture, this is the Federation ship USS Venture, Do you need assistance?"
Sounds stupid, doesnt it?
Of course this the same game, that has Borg terrorist cells infiltrating alien gouvernments on exploration missions in an underground base.
