I thought everybody should post the screenname they plan on using in STO when it comes out.  I'm sure a lot of you don't know what name you want to use, but just guess now and change it later.  It would be very nice to be able to have this thread when it comes out so we can recognize each other in the game!

Post your screenname and planed species:

[Edited for reasons seen below], I'll most likely be a vulcan  :logical:.

[Edited for sake of above poster](vulcan or human) not sure yet lol.

I just assumed that your name in this game could be anything you wanted, maybe even with numbers.  Do we have to have first and last names for realism (I have absolutely no experience with MMORPGs, so that's why I ask)?

RPism. you dont HAVE to have real names. And I just made that one up. But they might put restrictions on how you can makr your name. Like no numbers or symbols. In a lot of MMORPGS theres that certain someone who names themself JOhnnnyCarson,P0RN-STAR (i used 0 to get away from forum filter dont kick me)

sorry i would not post my name becuase if someone likes it and beats me to the game the first hours i will be really upset lol. It is nice to have ur name when u start and not have to spend hours trying to think up a good name. I cant stand people that cant come up with a name and use porn star names or movie star names cartoons this things are a lil bit gay and hope that they remove names like this if they are in game. Names like iuber, or leet, spiderman this names are a lil gay u know lol

Never thought of that, sorry for those who posted without this bit of knowledge.  I would be devestated without that screenname, I've been using it for years.  I'm preordering and joining starfleet on midnight of the day that it comes out though, so I think I'll be ok (unless any of you are that devious).

So it is said, Post at your own risk..........

That kindof killed this thread, but for good reason though.

I'll hold out on posting this thread until the game comes out, when it would have more use.  This is just way too early.....

Well I have to say that I, and many people I know, won't be associating with people who have nonsensical names, like with numbers or random captial letters in them (aka the L33t d00dz).

Kirk, Picard, Sisko and Janeway never had a Lt. p00pinUrPantz on their staff, and neither will a lot of STO captains  ;)

Im not too concerned the only name I came up with was a couple days ago when I was kinda off with the fairies.

I plan on going Vulcan, because I keep being compared to one since im "far too logical for my own good" and borg isnt really a viable PC character.

The name that developed was T'Plaz, as everyone (both online and offline) know me as Plaz since my real name is quite dull.

Since we'll more than likely be able to have more than 1 character there will also be an Andorian who I've not really thought much about I just think they look spiffy.

I use my real initials for a name, and base that name on the species play, if I choose a Vulcan I will just use my first initial. As for Bajoran I would reverse the names etc.

Hmmm, this topic gained some attention after all.  I don't really care if character's screennames don't actually make a name, but if they just sound stupid, like K1rkiscute or Mclassplanet, I'd be a bit turned off.  However, under no circumstances should the game limit your choices because of this, forcing you to choose names that make sense.  Just have a filter that doesn't let you be Kirk or Sisko or anything like that.

Brian Starr is my Sci-Fi toon name in many games and stories.  If someone ganks it, I'll be upset, but I'm not famous enough to worry about it.  I figure, in two years, people will either know me or not.
