Thats the most powerful escort class ship in the fleet? named after a holy beggar?
Not to be a sore loser, but I really have to agree with this post. My choice was "Roswell class" because to me it looked more saucer-shaped than any other ship I've ever seen.
Edit: Just read that Dervish also means a small and slightly powerful tornado. Now that I know this, that sounds like a perfect name. Sorry!
