Not a "new" ship design, was used in Enterprise: http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Raptor_class

And why must it be named after a class of Terran birds, especially one that already has a group of ships named after it?!?

Quote:
The term "raptor" is derived from the Latin word "rapere" and may refer informally to all birds of prey, or specifically to the diurnal group.

Why couldn't you have named it after one of the nearly 20 Klingon bird species we have? http://mughom.wizage.net/?words=bird

Or maybe a different Klingon animal? http://mughom.wizage.net/?words=animal
