I think the best approach to renaming is taking the original data (not AS)
and using a searchable notepad, rename the stars before entering the
database into AS. That is if anyone is currently undertaking this endeavor.
Another possibility is have 10+ people undertake a percentage of the
original data, still is a lot of work.

I know about "work for free", lol, I get approached by many to help out
doing 3D artwork for their projects, I've had to slap myself.
I only do 3D modeling/rendering now for trade or cash, trade is good, if one
is doing a non-profit project I'll trade artwork for something I need in
return. I've also just did some 3D models for David Schleifer's sixth novel
and his new graphic novellet just for Credits and signed copies of his books
(for my own collection and hobby resume).
