If i said Ich bin einen Adam that would mean i am Adam, but thats German. Is it German or Portuguese though as they have an Ein in their language too.

Actually you would say "Ich heisse Adam" or "Meine Name ist Adam" in German. "Ein" is a masculine gender indefinite article though. I believe starTREK is Spanish at any rate.

Sounds like the switchboard operator in a Factory in Barcelona I used to deal with...
"Can I speak to Mr Valeriano please?"
"You wan spik Valeriano EIN?"
"Yes please"
"I try EIN...You wait EIN!"
"He not here EIN..you go now EIN!"
..and then she always cut me off...

EIN is pronounced more like AN...

Its direct translation is something like:
"I consider this to be a good idea, but I would like to know your thoughts?"
