If you look at enough ships in-game and in real life you'll also notice the name is in multiple places as well. Since ships in sci-fi have engines in the back the name place that is normally in the rear of real life ships is moved to the front either on top, underside or both. The name is also typically on the side of the vessel/ship as well as you'll notice several ships (usually the larger ones) have the name placed on the nacelles as well. Pretty much same reasoning as having the ship name in all capitals.

In sci-fi this all helps with identifying debris as well as we've seen countless times in ST over the years.
