You just start using a different Alphabet. Greek is out due to the military alphabets' reliance on it, but maybe something like Hebrew.
Or, maybe, by the time they make the Ent-Z (just to clarify, when you read this I am saying "Zed", not "Zee") the Klingon's have become an integral part of the equivalent of the Federation (the UFP won't last for that long). Thus when it comes to the next Enterprise, the next ship's name will be presented with a Klingon letter on the end. (The first letter of the alphabet is pronounced "bab".)
Just a thought.
