If you're wondering if a name is important, research suggests that the link between a name and success later in life could be because the child is fulfilling others' expectations of them. For instance, if a name sounds as though the child came from a family of low socioeconomic status, he or she might be tagged as less capable of achieving. Now think of yourself with a new name. But imagine having an entire galaxy of names from which to choose. And since there is no money, you don't have to worry about a name that reflects economic status. Then select a name that indicates your species, your culture and your personality. What would that name end up being?

Whether you can imagine yourself being a Vulcan, Klingon, Ferengi or other favorite species, this quiz will help you fit into a lively, new universe.
