Dervish fits perfectly, everyone going to wikipedia thinking that's the end all be all of information and getting bent out of shape because dervish=beggar really needs to look at the other uses for and meanings of the word dervish.
Dervish is also another name for a small violent storm, not quite tornado level in scope. So for an escort ship, which are small, fast and armed to the teeth to begin with, the class name is perfect. For those of you that don't like the name...well nobody is gonna force you to sit in the captain's chair of one.
Emissary fits like a glove. All of Starfleet's flagships have had a diplomacy themed class designation and this is no different.
Destiny also works well. The Federation has always been about exploration, learning new things, developing new technology and meeting new cultures. The pinnacle tier of science vessels being Destiny class only means, to me at least, that the Federation's main goal is still that of exploration and the betterment of mankind through science.
Congrats to the winners and hopefully I'll spot those super exclusive titles in-game soon.
