Named after Lursa and B'Etor's Bird-of-Prey from Star Trek Generations.

I.K.S. Va'tal (Somraw-class Raptor)

Named after Kang's battle cruiser from the Voyager episode 'Flashback' (the one that battles the Excelsior). Went with the name from the game 'Star Trek: Tactical Assault', simply because it was the most impressive-sounding...

I.K.S. Voh'Tahk (K't'inga-class Battle Cruiser)

Named after Kang's D7 cruiser from the classic episode 'Day of the Dove', taking the name used in the IDW Comics series 'Klingons: Blood Will Tell'. I decked it out in 'retro'-style D7 greys, because I'm a massive fan of the TOS Klingons.

(...that, and the K't'inga model in STO is really inaccurate, and actually resembles the D7 instead... )
I found it really really funny that you spent all this time getting good canon names and stories for your ships......

but your name is Commander Shepherd.......
