Yep.. a whole bunch of classic Klingon ship designs.. all were at one point considered canon..

Even if Paramount never used them..

My favorites were always the the L series destroyers.. loved em all.. And truely dug the minimalist look of the D-4/5 and the wonderfully big D-10.

Please let us note the Orion and Gorn ships from the same game..
They were certainly considered canon by the fanbase, but that's the problem...unless it was on the screen or made by the prducers of the shows, it's not canon.
Same goes for fans of SFB, who consider it canon for the same reason fans of the old FASA stuff consider it canon: it's more consistent.
Even though the Orion Wanderer made a cameo on a computer screen in TNG, that's about as useful as the appearance of the Millenium Falcon in "First Contact".
Stuff made by FASA still belongs to FASA...or whoever took over FASA.
Means no chances for me to get a Riskadh.

*EDIT: the license for FASA stuff probably lies with Microsoft:
